Akikan 01, if only it was hentai.

akikan1

The idea that a random 16 year old male virgin, who lives on his own with nothing more to worry about than school, suddenly having some 16 year old girl drop into his life is nothing new. Some shows use this trope well, others don’t. This show falls in with the latter. In Akikan, Kakeru buys himself a melon soda on his way home. After taking a refreshing bath, yet to actually put any clothes on, he pops open his drink and as he puts the can to his lips he finds himself kissing a girl instead.

And from here we are treated with 10 minutes of him being naked as the can turned girl continues to try to tell him why she is there…. which beyond telling him that he should treat her like a soda can isn’t much. There is also a visit from two government officials who have already tracked him down, but they only say hello and then leave. Kakeru spends most of these 10 minutes thinking it is all a dream, how else would you explain a good looking 16 year old girl suddenly appearing in his room like that? Thus, if it is just a dream it would be a crime to turn the opportunity to do perverted things down. She isn’t too excited about the idea of being violated like that however. This continues till the commercial break, after which we are suddenly at school.

There really isn’t anything exciting about his school shown to us thus far. Though we do meet his (childhood?) friend Tenkuuji, who is more than willing to throw herself at him, if he ever asked. From the looks of it though, our hero Kakeru has a hard time paying attention to anything outside of his own monologue, which leaves Tenkuuji crying a storm of tears over him talking about some crazy, violent, girl. The scene ends with another girl (proclaimed lesbian and witch of the school), trying to sooth Tenkuuji’s tears and then threaten Kakeru.

The next arc of the episode is soda can girl telling her new master Kakeru that her purpose in life is for him to drink her juice, but the juice is her life force so if he doesn’t want her to die she’ll need to be refilled with the same juice. She is also an extremely jealous type, and threatens to throw out his rare can collection if he drinks any juice that isn’t hers.  One of the weirder moments in all this is when she is demanding that he drink from her while in can form, but he doesn’t want his lips to touch her so he uses a straw and as he sucks the juice from the can, she starts making all kinds of sex noises.

The final scene of the episode shows that she can also die if the soda in her loses all of it’s carbon dioxide and goes flat, but at the last moment she is saved by him performing CPR. She rewards his act of kindness by violently attacking him, that is until he brings up the fact that he named her. What better name for a melon soda can, that can transform into a girl, than Melon?

This show is seriously bad with subpar animation, ridiculous story and awful characters. I can’t find a single thing about the show that actually works. Even the jokes are more lame than funny. The main character’s facial expressions reminds me of Kintarou from Golden Boy, but he has none of the style or timing, and in the end just comes off as looking like a pervert. Sure there are at least two character that have not yet been introduced, but I seriously doubt that they could save this show. My suggestion, go watch Kannagi or any other show that uses this trope and stay as far away as possible from this empty can.

    i personally liked this anime and just got finished watching the whole series. It isn’t so bad and even if the main character is perverted when it comes down to it he cares about those around him. I really think this blogger needs to watch the rest of the show first and give it a chance.

    You can’t judge the whole anime from just the first episode ^_^

      Please, I request all of you to watch Clannad. If you want something with more fanservice give Chobits a try. If you want to see Akikan done right then watch To Love-Ru or Girls Bravo. There are so many better options out there, it simply makes no sense to suggest Shasta Cola when you can have Coca Cola instead.
