NEEDLESS ED – Get Your Kleenex Ready

Mouse over screenshots for captions

“For when you blow your wad, man.”


In before the rest of the world gets into a clusterfuck over this one. Perhaps the most staggering sequence ever conceived, the NEEDLESS ED emcompasses all major fetishes readily identifyable in anime today, and does it with such alacrity and accuracy it raises issues of whether this was done by an army of otaku voting on their top fetishes, or if it was the work of a single catastrophically brilliant mind so far past perverted that he has unquestionably become one with the fetish hive-mind. Unafraid, unabashed, confident and comprehensive – such is the nature of the images portrayed by this ED, performed so enthusiastically and passionately by three deliciously unique nubiles one has no choice but to just sit back and sigh in titillated euphoria.

Such a quality production is in stark contrast with the actual episode, which does an impressive job of pushing a distinctive style reminiscent of Gurren Lagann, but is for the most part an exercise in generic action and on the whole “I’m just here to watch the ED”.

In particular the attention to feet and kissing is worth mention as both are currently underappreciated traits but clearly on the rise. The prevalence of ankles and feet in recent moe-standard show K-ON!, together with the emphasis on deep kissing in sis-con instaboner anime Kiss x Sis are definitive examples of the rising trend, and this ED charmingly provides an extensive progress check from which we can recalibrate our attentions and refocus our energies on the necessary aspects of character design.

I’ve likely missed out on many of the alternate fetishes in the screenshot captions – I implore my fellow brothers in arms to kindly point them out to me. Onward, brave soldiers!!

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:14 amRawrlawl

    At first I though the Setsuna girl was a guy

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:15 amRawrlawl

    At first I thought the Setuna girl was a guy o_O

    42 screenshots for one and a half minutes! GOD DAMN jaalin!

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:17 amjaalin

    the amount of screenshots i take is based on the density of scenes, not length – hence the 24 shots for k-on 13, hence the 42 for needless ED

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:22 amnapen

    now that’s funny, the comments

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:32 amN97

    Set for my FireFox home page :D

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:37 amGS

    Its mind-bangingly random…

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:40 amZED

    I certainly wasn’t expecting that MADhouse (famous for all their GAR titles)would produce a show like this..
    Anyway, it looks good.. I’m going to give it a try

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:40 amGhostNPC

    I hope one day they’ll make an engaging story out of this genre.

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:52 amMeery

    Collarbones are underrepresented. Shame.

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:53 amAnony

    whats this i dont even

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:57 amAvenger

    Jaalin, you prove once more that you are a dictionary of fetishes :D

  • July 3, 2009 at 2:03 amRinyal

    Is it just me or is screen 36 totally a ripe off of Hatsune Miku’s song “World is Mine”? I mean even the pose is almost the same. ┐(´ー`)┌

  • July 3, 2009 at 2:05 amrelentlessflame

    In shot 38 there, they list the OP/ED animation credits, and it looks like the whole ED is being credited to just two animators? They sure had a field day with this one. ^^;

  • July 3, 2009 at 2:09 amEspada

    dammit to much blood in the keyboard >,<

  • July 3, 2009 at 2:10 amewok

    …about a million of my brain cells engaged in higher morality functions just died…
    adding to directory: screen 18, bath fetish!

  • July 3, 2009 at 2:20 amsabin

    LOL @ eyebrow licking fetish..
    *remembers Mugi-chan*

  • July 3, 2009 at 2:44 amRickyMack

    i thought the kleenex was for wiping away the tears of joy

  • July 3, 2009 at 3:10 amDylanc

    watch the opening to this show and then watch this again and realize that they are the same freaking series

  • July 3, 2009 at 3:31 amGrant

    And here I thought the Utena opening was suggestive.

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:09 amPlant42

    He he he You forgot to mention about that mysterious green hair girl(?) who appears in the later part of the ED.
    Too bad from what the author said the anime will end it’s 2 cour at Simeon Arc , so “he” may not have any screen time more than in the ED

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:11 ambaka~

    jaalin’s having a field day.. chances of blogging this one is…?

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:14 amHolding

    Too many fetishes on the screen!!!
    Oh jaalin,I underistimated you…
    Now for some kleenex…

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:18 amPhosphatide

    The AnimeNewsNetwork page for this resembles nothing like this ED.

    i’m so confused

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:21 amChimasternmay

    now i gotta find time to watch this anime haha.

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:42 amk2000k

    Did I just see a fetish involving a stuffed bear?!?!?!

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:50 amExia

    Thigh kissing yum!

  • July 3, 2009 at 5:20 amherb

    That was pretty hot, but does it actually have anything to do with the anime? That is, is the yuri restricted to the ending?

  • July 3, 2009 at 5:58 ammegalith

    MAD HOUSE!????????????????????? WHAT!?????????????????????????

  • July 3, 2009 at 6:06 amFat Cat Lim

    So uh, what was the episode exactly about? :/

  • July 3, 2009 at 6:12 amFeenix

    Crying/laughing with wide open eyes. It’s like the perfect storm of fetishes.

  • July 3, 2009 at 6:46 amMiras

    This deserves to be included in the almanac of anime history (or almanac of weirdest/most brilliant ideas) :). Epic. I’ll make sure to check the series after seeing this.

  • July 3, 2009 at 6:57 amnikolai131

    Can you pls give download links to both the OP/ED of the series if possible????

  • July 3, 2009 at 7:12 amFirechick

    ………………………………You have GOT to be kidding me. BAN I SAY!!! BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!

  • July 3, 2009 at 7:56 amNalface

    after the bad taste of this week’s suzumiya haruhi, this was a welcome change. Love the first episode!!! So hilarious, so action-packed, so much cleavage… ^_^

    I’m feeling better already.

  • July 3, 2009 at 9:43 amStormflux

    Haruhi has nothing on this godliness.

  • July 3, 2009 at 9:57 amsealouse

    Well I guess you can’t judge a series by its ED?

  • July 3, 2009 at 10:06 amcoyo

    This isn’t a real series right?

  • July 3, 2009 at 10:08 amrunrun

    I have a fetish they don’t have there.
    should I feel insulted?

  • July 3, 2009 at 10:29 amillu

    I came :(

  • July 3, 2009 at 11:08 amSyaoran Li

    What was that? dear lord, first Jubbei-chan and now this one…

  • July 3, 2009 at 1:20 pmTenck

    went and looked up the OP on youtube…those can’t be the same show! XD

  • July 3, 2009 at 2:44 pmAwesome.

    I seriously thought the blue guy was a guy.

    I was horribly wrong.

  • July 3, 2009 at 3:17 pmKinny Riddle

    Wow. That’s all I’ll say.

    BTW, Jaalin (and Omni for that matter), when you post YouTube videos, can you please provide a SD version of it as well? Not all of us have processors powerful enough to play HD videos, you know? I had to personally seek out “NEEDLESS ED” on YouTube and view the SD version, or all I’ll get is stuttering images.

  • July 3, 2009 at 3:23 pmBlackpanda

    What a horrible anime =__= what wrong with this world today, i have no problem with yuri/yoai anime, but this is just so wrong 0_o; im sad to see some animes have turn out this way. Sad, sad, people fetish should stay on their mind.

    *throws up*

  • July 3, 2009 at 3:38 pmbrakes

    this is a load of crap, im not sure how the ed relates to the show but this ED is a shithole. watching the ed just destroyed any consideration of watching this series. i seriously hope that the ED is not indicative of a trend. Yuri is okay to an extent, but this is a bad direction for trends.

  • July 3, 2009 at 3:47 pmDmonHiro

    What if those three girls are actually ONE entity, or can combine into one? That would make sense. In the OP, after they show them, they show this strange creature with three glowing red eyes….

  • July 3, 2009 at 4:49 pmdivine

    Kinny Riddle:
    You can always get the URL for the SD version by mousing over the up arrow in the bottom right corner and clicking the box that pops up. There, you’ll see both the embed code and the URL of the video.

    You can also mouse over the top left corner of the video when it’s playing and click the name of the video to direct you to the corresponding YouTube page.

  • July 3, 2009 at 5:52 pmillu

    Did anyone watch the actual show? I have a question:

    Show Spoiler ▼

  • July 3, 2009 at 6:56 pmJay

    The death of anime has come.

  • July 3, 2009 at 7:20 pmRJ TAYLER

    Fetish free for all or paraphillia parking please! I am yet to decide.

  • July 3, 2009 at 7:39 pmrin

    Wow…this is like fanservice to the MAX! So..sparkly..and blinding too o_O

  • July 3, 2009 at 9:24 pmHonus

    Pretty sure I’m not the only one that didn’t see this coming based on the season preview and ANN.

  • July 4, 2009 at 12:05 ammohawk

    i really wish omni would do the same thing as jaalin when blogging. not the type of anime but putting short comments to lighten up the mood.

  • July 4, 2009 at 1:16 amRajion

    What the fuck did i just watch and where do i find this?

  • July 4, 2009 at 1:21 amBROOKLYN otaku

    dont know what u smoking J….but all i see is badly drawn HYPER TRANSMOGRAFYING TRAPS!!!

  • July 4, 2009 at 4:46 amdmo

    Men, we’ve indeed entered the “Aggressive zone”… o___o

  • July 4, 2009 at 10:47 amfemanon

    definitely gonna watch it

  • July 4, 2009 at 12:25 pmVsin

    *watches ED*
    Jeez, not another one…

    *watches OP*
    …wait…are these from the same show? Those three had cameo screentime in the OP o_0 Not to mention the complete lack of…ANYBODY ELSE.

  • July 4, 2009 at 3:22 pmAmu

    Very..sad. What’s disgusting besides the sparkles and all is that they don’t even look like *women*,just little girls.. What a turn off if that’s what some guys are into. :/ The blue haired one looks like a boy as well.
    I agree with blackpanda and brakes overall.

  • July 4, 2009 at 8:54 pmP0

    WHERES MY GLASSESES FETICH THIS FAILS SIR… but i cant stop watching

  • July 4, 2009 at 10:06 pmBrazil

    It’s sad to admit, but I was going to not watch this series at all based on the synopsis and peoples expectations for this. But that ed. actually peeked my curiosity and personally I though that the first episode was one of the best first episodes of any show I’ve ever seen.
    Needless will abstain to the rule of cool and hopefully make a awesome series

  • July 4, 2009 at 10:17 pmbrianleung8912

    quoting from bow wow eh >:)

  • July 5, 2009 at 7:05 amSkull_Commander

    What is the anime title of this ED belong to?

  • July 5, 2009 at 2:25 pmHentaikid

    “All fetishes”? I saw no tentacles…

  • July 5, 2009 at 2:46 pmfoamer

    wow @_O

    so where do the 3 characters fit into all this, the series that is?

  • July 5, 2009 at 3:36 pmNarana

    Wow this is so wrong and weird…where can I watch it?

  • July 5, 2009 at 6:21 pmroger

    Wthe the heck does that ending have to do with the anime? None of the characters seem lie they are from that anime.

  • July 6, 2009 at 8:30 pmTran

    All full of yuriness. :)))))

    My kind of thing. ;D

  • July 8, 2009 at 11:01 pmmeowrific

    i got to say the second i saw this ending i torrented the episode and was surprised to find it was nothing i expected >.> i mean its not bad but the ending made it seem like the show would be more about those 3 instead of some generic after ww3 desolation plot

  • July 9, 2009 at 3:50 amVsin

    If you wanted to figure out what the show was about, you shoulda seen the OP first. That is MUCH closer than this ED…though for all we know, those three could have that exact role in the show >_>

  • July 9, 2009 at 8:45 pmgoodyfun

    Aw, I love being bi. Those girls are so cuuuttt- DAMMIT A LOLI!

    You can’t get away from those these days, can ya? At least they’re cute.

  • July 10, 2009 at 11:03 amgoodyfun

    Oh, and I’m with P0 about the glasses.

  • July 11, 2009 at 5:16 pmManiko

    In one of the pic Kuchinashi look like Mikura in World is Mine o_O

  • July 24, 2009 at 1:52 pmNoU

    The green haired “Girl” in the ending(shown for a split second) is Yamada? Green Hair + Blue Eyes and Short unlike his Sister who was tall and is (most likely) dead

  • August 25, 2009 at 9:07 amwagwag

    lol. this is mind-fucking….

  • January 11, 2011 at 12:14 amShadowanime12

    I admired the ED because it had a few foot scenes. I somehow dreamt this one night. It had me drooling for more. This is like a yuri-fetish fantasy to me. Setsuna is one of my favorite yuri characters.
