well, about the only thing that comes close is Sakura spoiler[declaring that after finally beating the girl who made the disparaging remark about idols, she's come to love pro wresting and will continue to do so.]

I'm pretty sure I saw a figure-four lock in episode 7, a nice tribute to the nature boy Ric Flair. Woooooo

Amazing to me that they will censor a nipple in the bathtub but let all that stuff through.

You can't help but facepalm when Jackal promises to "take her to paradise" when Sakarua's spoiler[labia is that swollen]. Get a room, girls.

I facepalmed many times during this episode as well.

Sakura logic:

DROPKICK!
oh she blocked it....
DROPKICK!
oh she blocked it again now what?...
MOTHER ****ING DROPKICK AGAIN!

I'm guessing Jackel must be American (not sure i haven't been paying attention) since she was given a lot of English lines but the way they were pronounced made this episode actually quite funny (engrish is always hilarious to me Anime smile).

Also the animation makes the transition between moves really awkward. Not sure why expect a show like this to have a decent budget to begin with though.

Throwing the fan service out of the equation, is this a good show worth watching. Comments seem it indicate it is getting better.

So is there a good story in here, with good characters you will actually care about?

No. No. and No.

The characters are all paper board cut outs. There is barely a story to speak of and it's quite honestly stupid. Though when it comes to sports anime you shouldn't expect much of a story anyway besides the whole underdog vs experienced foes.

All you need to do is watch episode 1 and it'll pretty much sum up how the entire series is going to flow for you.

This anime isn't trying to show you any real in depth of female wrestling it's merely for those who like girls grappling each other making erotic noises. Simple as that.

Notice how the quality went WAAAAY up when they dropped the idol stuff completely, including the idol ending?

Better stay that way.

How has she not suffered any broken/dislocated bones, head trauma or any sort of injury? sure, she's flexible from being an idol and all the other training she does for wresting, but she's in severe pain in those moves for a lengthy amount of time and in some really weird angles. can you really just kick someone in the jaw?

the variety of moves was a nice change pace.

Jackal Toto - best pro-wrestling name evar.

The show is picking up a bit for me. Still not to the point that I could actually recommend it to anyone, but at least I'm not overcome with a desire to put my fist through the screen twenty times an episode. Baby steps.

I think I'm gonna like this new gung-ho character we'll be meeting next week.

You know i really don't understand this anime's logic sometimes. Getting put in a sleeper hold requires Rio to get pulled out in a stretcher But getting suplexed, body slammed and piledrived 100 times (which would no doubt cause severe head trauma and possible internal bleeding) is something you can easily walk off?
Who the hell even decided that it makes sense for someone to become pro just because you took 100 throws? What happened training, building your endurance, going to wrestling school or a local league first? You could basically be a masochist and become a pro wrestler if that's the case!!!

Also the animation is getting worse for some reason. This is some low budget ecchi fan pandering trash at it's finest!

And that ends my weekly rant for "Wanna be the Strongest in the World!"

Be sure to tune in next week Wink

It is somehow gratifying to see Sakura no longer clinging timorously to the bottom rung. Rio seems to respect her for one thing. Also it is quote a relief seeing her put a Boston Crab on someone else for a change.

"Her mouth keeps writing checks that her ass can't cash," seems to be a saying that applies to Sakura, but it does appear that her ass can cash an awful lot. Still, does she have to accept every unequal challenge thrown her way?

I guess that makes her a natural for pro wrestling. However I guess it is a given that she has to win, or at least not lose, the match. Otherwise the story sort of ends there since she will be forced to quit.

Drat, the idol ED is back even though they aren't relevant anymore.

Spunky Green seems rather pointless. Introduce a character when the show is almost over? Why!? Focus on the ones that are already here!

Hopefully Blue Boobs' fight will have lots of good shots like that last big battle.
