Now, let’s drop the pretense. “I Wanna Be the Strongest in the World” is just a really thin excuse to show off female wrestlers and their body parts. The plot of the original story was practically transparent but the OVA drops everything.
There may be more than three shorts I ran across (about five minutes each), but you get to see all that you want to see.
Somewhere in the bowels of the Berserk Gym is a special room, a room filled with mud, so the ladies can learn all there is to know about mud wrestling. Is this an Olympic event or is Hooters hiring? So the ladies learn that mud is slippery and, in trying to acclimate themselves as to what to do, costume tops gets pulled down and the boobies come out, unfettered and uncensored. There is squealing and not caring that one is topless amid other topless ladies as we slop about and slide through and roll hither and thither.
Then, there is Room 2, where the ancient art of Lotion Wrestling is practiced…..with the same naked results. I was not aware of the great and grand history of lotion wrestling and how it was handed down through the ages in Japan. Who knows how Japanese History was altered because of a bout of Lotion Wrestling at an inopportune moment.
Room 3 has the Scalding Hot Bath, to see if ladies can withstand the high temperatures. Well, then can’t and suits seem to go flying into outer space. We end up with all the ladies in some kind of stripped down flesh fest, enjoying each other’s company and the bath.
Now, if these situations weren’t cornball enough, the dialogue (as I don’t know what else to call it) skims close to that Austin Powers salaciousness.
So, if you are interested in bazooms and buttocks, get yourself to the OVA and knock yourself out. There may be more out there, but I am giving up on it.
On a scale of 1 to 10:
Artwork 9 (Naked, naked, naked)
Plot 2 (Don’t hurt yourself looking for it)
Pacing 5 (Slow until the garments go flying)
Effectiveness 2 (What are you, stupid?)
Conclusion 2 (As if…..)
Fan Service 8 (A similar show would be “Sekerei”)
Overall 1 (Not ‘Eiken’ bad, but bad)
And remember, it’s first run until you’ve seen it. And, honey, you’ll see a lot!
