Sekai Seifuku – Bouryaku no Zvezda — First Impressions


A loli conquers the world.

Let me be honest. I was about to give up all hope for this season. There’s not much left to air, except for Nisekoi and what looked like a lolicon show. But you really can’t tell much from just a promo picture.


Sekai Seifuku’s first episode was excellent, possibly the best of the entire season. Sure, it does probably have lolicon tendencies. But it’s funny (a little girl with training wheels conquering the world?), it has cool fights, an epic scale (world conquest), and an enormous skeleton eating strawberry cheesecake while cutting tanks in half. What more could anyone ask for?

By the way, does anyone know why the guy driving the tank said the girl was copying Lincoln? I didn’t get that.

  1. It’s a reference to the “by the people, to the people, for the people” speech (I guess it was Gettysburg…?), as Kate says “by the conquest, to the conquest, for the conquest”.

    This was really entertaining and intriguing. I guess it was the next logical step. After lolis driving tanks, the “cute girls doing preposterous things in a cute way” finally becomes its own sub-genre and ups the ante. This thing appears to be so off the rails I don’t even know well what to expect. It’s not perfect, but hell, in this desolation of a season which will probably go down in the future chronicles as one of the worst anime seasons ever, it looks at least intriguing. I’m in for now.

    1. Ahhh. Yes, that’s Gettysburg. The line is “Conquest of conquest, by conquest, for conquest.” In Gettysburg Lincoln said “Government of the people, by the people, for the people.” The two phrases share only three prepositions so you can see how I missed it… Maybe it’s more obvious in Japanese.

      Have to say, world conquest is much cooler than driving tanks. This should help keep me entertained since yeah, this season kind of sucks. At least we have Kill la Kill and Samurai Flamenco carrying over from last year.
