Agent Aika

VHS 1 - Lace in Space

Synopsis:
Agent Aika VHS 1 - Lace in Space
She's sexy, suave and sophisticated - but she's no bimbo. She's a martial arts expert and a jet fighter pilot - with the body of a supermodel. She's Aika, and for the right price, no risk is too great!

A nihilistic mastermind has devised the ultimate Doomsday device: a space-based energy weapon that will trigger an apocalyptic earthquake - laying waste to human civilization. Then, he'll personally repopulate the planet with a spaceship full of beautiful women! The military doesn't stand a chance, so it's up to Aika to save civilization as we know it!
Review:
AIKa... uh... kind of defies explanation. It's something you really have to see. It's as if someone tried to make the most perverted anime they could without anyone actually being in any sexual situations. (Okay, so there are some.) The result? Some VERY odd camera angles and plot devices!

AIKa is what's known as a salvage agent. See, after the great disaster, which completely submerged the island of Japan, salvage agents try to SALVAGE data and objects from the old cities. The job is very hazardous, but pays very well, and AIKa is one of the best. She's also great at piloting and martial arts. She also has the Semi-Sentient Super-Battle Bustier, which melts away her clothes, turns into an arm that fondles her, and becomes her special battle bikini a la Cutey Honey.

This time, AIKa has been assigned to get data on a special force that can destroy every human being on the planet. Of course, she's been taken captive by people wanting to use the force! Her partner Rion is captured too, and some annoying fellow salvage artists are trying to bail them out.

One word describes AIKa rather well: panties. Lots of panties. There is NO woman wearing anything besides panties or bikini briefs, with the exception of three-inch-long miniskirts, and whenever possible (and sometimes even when it isn't) they are in a position where that skirt doesn't get in the way.

There are so many panty shots that they actually get pretty tiresome. There's some spankin' here, some nudity, and pretty much everywhere you look, there's SOMETHING perverted to see.

The dub is weak and mistimed, and some of the minor characters just plain can't act, but I don't think anyone is even paying attention to that. If you need a wank film, get an Anime 18 release. I can't imagine an OAV like this even has an audience.
