Synopsis

Tough schoolgirl Inaba Mikami is in a fight with a guy from a rival school when she is thrown through a rabbit hutch and off the roof of her school. As she falls to her doom, she sees Mimika, one of the rabbits, also falling, and tries to shield Mimika. In doing so, they fuse into a single being - half-human and half-rabbit. In effect, Mimika and Mikami share the same body -- a body Mimika wants to share with her friend Haru. But then they must battle other Fused champions, and weird lifeguards, and android gang flunkies.

Uhh, yeah.

Review

Let's see here - we've crossed Saki from Sukeban Deka with a really horny rabbit that wants nothing more than to hump the main character's leg. Gee, what a real winner we've got here!

Much like De:Vadasy, this is one of the rare occasions in which such a pencil-thin premise should have been paired with out-and-out hentai. At least that would excuse the ridiculous characterization and brain-dead "antics" that permeate this series like Distilled Essence of Pepe Le Pew. (Or three-inch-thick cakes of rabbit litter. Your choice.)

Surprisingly, this is a Pink Pineapple feature that does not concentrate on rampant acts of an adult nature. Nope, they're going for the easily pleased teenage male audience with this one - you know, the kind that isn't old enough to go to a "real" video store. To prove this point, practically every single female character in this flick has a panty shot, even the extras. It's almost as bad as Aika, with all the fan service and titillation, but all you get are a bunch of close encounters of the stupid kind, with the main character not quite sure what to do with all the bimbos around him. It's like a bad 80s teen exploitation movie, only animated, and with pasted-on rabbit ears for good measure.

Not to say this is well animated by any means. Animated breasts have never looked so fake. Even diehard fan service junkies cringed through the episode we screened, with all the pointless jiggling and humping and gratuitous cameltoe (!) going on. The action sequences, as well, ranged from improbably stupid to incredibly stupid.

Granted, it's not offensively bad in the traditional way, but with the usual Pink Pineapple quality of plot (that is to say, very little, and very poor) this is one series that should be relegated for those nights where you want to mock something.

Unless you're a teenager who has nothing better to do with his life than try to watch scrambled porn or surf furry sites at three in the morning. Then maybe you might like this. (If you do, then for goodness sake, don't tell me about it!)

Not the worst of the worst, but the sheer stupidity of this series lends itself to quick and easy cheap shots from those who actually spent the time to download it. Feel free to remove one star if you were actually tricked into importing this damn thing.Carlos Ross

Recommended Audience: There's a scene in which the rabbit-personality, Mimika, takes to time to explore Mikami's body because "she's always wondered what it felt like". Obviously, while it's not completely porn, it's still definitely not for kids.
