Majikoi Oh! Samurai Girls!
- 1 Season
Majikoi Oh! Samurai Girls! is a 12 episode anime derived from an adult visual novel titled Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai! (meaning "Seriously, Fall in Love With Me" in Japanese). The story takes place in Kawakami City, a place well-known for reverence of its samurai heritage. "Fighting spirit" is regarded as a valuable asset, especially for doing well in school. The main character, Yamato Naoe, is a sophomore student who always seems to be around his friends. All of these people have known each other for a long time. The status quo is eventually shaken up when two other girls are welcomed into their circle of friends. The cast of characters includes lead Yamato Naoe, known for his intellect (being placed in the equivalent of Honors-tier classes), evasion skills in combat and his tactical prowess in gaining money or defeating an opponent. Momoyo Kawakami is the oldest child in her family and is challenged by fighters across the world on a daily basis, although she is the most beautiful student at Kawakami High School, her battle prowess leaves just about every male student too intimidated to ask her out on a date. The orphaned Kazuko Kawakami is a perky, upbeat girl who is well-versed in the use of a naginata (longspear). Miyako Shiina is a top class archer that while cute, is shy around everyone but Yamato. This leads most onlookers to believe that she is already claimed by Yamato. Yukie Mayuzumi is an odd freshman who talks to her cell phone charm, named Matsukaze, and happens to be descended from a "sword saint." Christiane Friedrich is a German transfer student who knows nothing about Japan outside of the period dramas she's seen on television. She has a strong sense of justice and wields a unique weapon used for fencing combat. Gakuto Shimazu is a muscular pervert with little to no luck with women, especially as he only looks to girls of his age or older. Shoichi Kazama is the leader of the Kazama clan as well as Yamato's closest friend. Instead of pursuing women or excelling in school, he longs for a life of simple adventure. Takuya Morooka is an overweight "otaku" of technical gear and conceals his perversions most among the group.
