Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride – 02

OP Sequence

OP: 「AI DO.」 by 橋本みゆき (Hashimoto Miyuki)

「忠、ふたたび 」(Tadashi, futatabi)
“Kiss, Again”

Here is it – your erotic fantasies come true. Starting with a bathroom scene that is bound to induce waves of nosebleeds, the second episode of Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride was pretty much wire-to-wire hilarity from beginning to end. For the first three minutes, the show featured nothing but a bounty of nude females, taking part in what I presumed to be normal bathing activities – splashing, rubbing, jiggling and hugging. Hyakka Ryouran is many things, but subtle has never been one of them. There’s something to be said about fanservice that is so unapologetic and more so than ever, this episode doesn’t pretend to be anything else but that. Everything seems like an excuse to put the fanservice on steroids, and no question, it was ridiculous, oversexed and above all, fun.

The episode was filled with great gags and pretty much everyone gets their time in the spotlight. It all started when a Happosai-like pantsu thief appears out of nowhere and sends the samurai girls on a quest to hunt down the pervert. As usual, Muneakira was dragged into his harem’s absurdities and the non-stop bickering that ensued between Sen Hime and Yukimura had me laughing out loud. There are several jokes that manage to draw a chuckle of two out of me, but two gags in particular stood out. The first one – Yukimura engaging in a preposterous fantasy about Muneakira lusting over her mature figure (you wish!) – succeeded in leaving a silly grin on my face, but it was the second one – the sight of Matabe sniffing Yukimura’s crotch to trace the scent of the thief – that inspired fits of laughter in me. I knew from the preview a brand new Master Samurai might appear, but I was nowhere close to figuring out her identity. It turns out she’s Sasuke (Akasaki Chinatsu) and yes, she is indeed a monkey. An accidental lip lock cemented her status as the monkey-girl Master Samurai, Sarutobi Sasuke and not only did she fill the animal girl stereotype, she also became the star attraction of their meido kissa. Everything about our furry friend is a blast, starting with the fact that she takes great joy in making fun of Kanetsugu and no doubt, Sasuke has proven to be a great addition to Muneakira’s ever-growing harem.

It’s safe to say Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride has delivered on every level. Everything I love about the show is in tip-top condition, and some have even shifted to a higher gear this week. The character development, verbal banter and the sight gags were spot-on, but the profuse fanservice definitely takes the cake as the most memorable part of this episode. Now that we have Sasuke on board, things are certainly heating up in every way and I can’t wait to see what kind of madness she brings to the table, aside from the obvious tendency to steal pantsu.

      Thanks. Glad you noticed :P

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:11 pmriii

    sniffing a girl’s crotch without knowing if she has taken a bath recently is not one of my fetishes!

    • April 14, 2013 at 1:02 pmSilentCid

      I thought they always smell flowery down there no?

      • April 14, 2013 at 8:28 pmunderbeds

        +10 Seishun Points.
        That made me LOL XD

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:18 pmRockmanshii

    Hahaha the monkey surely reminded me of Happossai too.
    Kannestsugu’s “SHAAADDUP” and “number WAN” are the jokes that made my stomach hurt the most.

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:08 amSeishun

      +50 Seishun Points, Ranma <3
      Yeah, Kanetsugu was pretty funny this week XD

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:19 pmRukia

    Not watching the series. Going to download this episode though.

    • April 14, 2013 at 12:51 pmriii

      that’s what I do

    • April 14, 2013 at 6:09 pmKarmafan

      You are missing out. This series has been a riot from day 1.

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:10 amSeishun

      Or just grab the Full-lengths from my post every week XD
      But on a more serious note, this is a really good comedy, you should give it a shot ;)

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:21 pmZen


    Lol, the fanservice episode of an already borderline-H fanservice show…XP

    • April 14, 2013 at 6:41 pm†Croos†


      Just like Seishun and another “S” person that I know that.

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:24 pmClockwerk

    So Kanetsugu gets beat at being a Master Samurai by a monkey. Should I laugh or feel bad for her?

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:34 amSeishun

      I kinda feel bad for her to be honest XD

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:29 pmSin1505

    I forgot this would be NSFW maaahhhh~
    I failed to press the back button on time …

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:16 amSeishun

      Are you sure you weren’t aiming for the save button? :P

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:39 pmDunn

    /looks at Seishun. High five!
    Episode was over the top funny on all levels. Welcoming the surprises that keep coming… Heh.

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:33 amSeishun

      High five!

  • April 14, 2013 at 12:52 pmKurisu Vi Britannia

    How is this insanely NSFW?

    It’s not as bad as that loli sex episode from another series I fail to remember the name of.

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:18 amSeishun

      Heh, some of us don’t consume hentai as a staple you know :P

      • April 15, 2013 at 6:35 amKurisu Vi Britannia

        It was a non-hentai anime with a really hentai-like OVA.

  • April 14, 2013 at 1:08 pmSDFSDG

    I like this fanservice due to the fact that it doesn’t portray the girls as sluts as certain other shows *ahem* Highschool DxD…seriously, their fanservice is sleezy *ahem* But I think the biggest twist with Sasuke is that everyone who saw her in the PV thought she was a cat girl…well she’s a monkey girl. Plus she’s a good addition to the team because she’ll apparently make up for the lack of superspeed the team has, as she’s hinted to go up against that one Dark Samurai who states she’s faster than Senhime

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:25 amSeishun

      You take that back, Rias and Akeno-sempai ain’t sluts XD
      I can’t remember when was the last time I saw a monkey girl. Cat girls and fox girls are pretty common in anime these days.

  • April 14, 2013 at 1:14 pmewok40k

    this fanservice is so… so… SHAMELESS!
    …turns download ON…
    …makes me remember why I was watching first season… oh and the fights were nice too…

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:26 amSeishun

      What about the plot? lol

      • April 16, 2013 at 12:03 amThe Moondoggie

        Plot? What Plot XD?

      • April 17, 2013 at 1:03 amewok40k

        @ The Moondoggie: Ancient evil (T) Sealed in a can (T) is being awakened by Evil worshipping cult (T) so Unlikely Her (T) Chivalrous Pervert (T) steps up with his Harem (T) of Action Girls (T) to defeat them – Just add lots of fanservice (T) – Hilarity ensues (T)

  • April 14, 2013 at 2:32 pmMesousa2877

    Best Samurai Girls ever, especially compared to season 1. Funny, sexy, even charming, and the fanservice is top-notch, proving that it’s not always a bad thing.



    NO. WORDS. This is too hot. O_O

    • April 14, 2013 at 4:11 pmRukia

      I’m with you. I wish that scene had lasted a few minutes though.

    • April 15, 2013 at 4:29 amSeishun

      Can’t say I’m Yukimura’s biggest fan, loli ojou-sama’s not my type. But mannnn, even I thought that scene was insanely hot :x

    “But more importantly we need to talk about this Son Goku!” by Kanetsugu


    Don’t worry about the monekey taking your spotlight Kanetsugu,it’ll never reach your level.

  • April 14, 2013 at 5:41 pmMagoiichi

    When is Goemon going to show up ;p?


    Best part of the episode >:3

    No moe moe kyun kyun this time and no naked dance T-T

    No screencap of when Musashi calls Juubei a fake and Juubei grabs dem cheeks?!?

    I am disappoint

  • April 14, 2013 at 8:25 pmThe Moondoggie

    Darn, my subs isn’t ATX Raw….

    Anyway so we now know that the Samurai powers affect any female, of any species? LOL so a female elephant and a female whale is ok too? XD

  • April 14, 2013 at 10:34 pmDa5id

    It’s like hentai without the sex.

    Borderline, man, borderline.

    I get a little uncomfortable when nudity starts flying in fast and hard, but thankfully the humor is entertaining enough for me to regain some of the comfort I had when watching the first season.

    Comparisons aside, what seems a potentially nonsensical episode was actually pretty fun. You would think a monkey who steals underwear would actually be a male, but turns out to be a female (and a cute one to boot). Good job on breaking that illusion there.

    When will the Warrior of Love ever get her day? XD

  • April 15, 2013 at 1:04 pmdaikama

    LOL – just when you thought the first episode’s fan service was abundant…wow. One of the most ecchi/fanservice episodes I’ve seen in quite a while – and I watched Hagura Yuusha, Dakara Boku wa H ga Dekinai along with HS DxD, Hyakka’s 1st season, etc.

    Perhaps alone on this, but I wasn’t a fan of the monkey -> master samurai transformation. Seems to me like a pretty forced way to get an XXX-mimi character into the show. Why stop there? Might as well have a couple of nekomimi and inumimi master samurais and you can just overwhelm the “dark” samurai’s with numbers.

    Overall, I thought it was a decent episode with some funny moments driven by the ecchi theme (ex. Matabe). As I posted previously, I’d rather an ecchi show stay true to it’s genre than be somewhat half-hearted about it (e.g. Senran). However, with the ecchi theme so predominant in this episode (borderline IMO as well), I’m starting to wonder whether that will be the trend for the rest of the season with the plot/story pushed into the background. JMO, but I’d like some better balance and focus.

    • April 17, 2013 at 3:29 amSeishun

      Only those who truly love Muneakira is worthy of his kiss :P
      I agree, Senran Kagura was pretty disappointing. Better go all out if you want to do ecchi ;)

  • April 16, 2013 at 12:11 amagr0n

    I liked how the panties thief ended up being a girl :p

  • April 18, 2013 at 12:37 amcyprinious

    I actually gasps like an offended old woman when she lifted her leg for the sniff!

    Then of course around replay number ??? I was more like, gheh gheh gheh…

    What is wrong with me :D
