Welcome to the Keijo!!!!!!!! discussion thread. Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.
Keijo!!!!!!!! Genres: Ecchi, Sports, Comedy Alias(es): Hip Whip Girl Studio: Xebec Premiere Date: October 2016 Episode Count: 12 Adaptation: Based on a Manga Series Streaming: TBA
Plot Synopsis: "Keijo" is a popular gambling sport where contestants stand on platforms floating on the water and must use their butts and chests to fight against each other to push each other off the platform. Nozomi Kaminashi, a high school student, aims to join the sport after she graduates. Nozomi was raised in a poor family and hopes to make lots of money by playing Keijo. She grew up training in gymnastics, and she has good balance and flexibility. After high school, Nozomi joins a training boarding school and enters the world of Keijo.
Taka: The newly revealed characters look awesome so far. Wonder how far they might go in the Keijo events.
I'm also fine with changing the thread's name to "Hip Whip Girl" if it gets localized that way officially. I must've shocked a lot of people here by creating this thread after all the other discussion threads I saw with my main tastes and the last few shows that I campaigned. XD
Since I follow Moetron for my news, they get news earlier than Anime News Network; however, ANN, CR, and Fandompost, have more context for those images and trailers.
For the magazine scan I posted 3 posts up,
Here is the context:
Rena Maeda (Hunter × Hunter's Machi, Parasyte -the maxim-'s Akiho Suzuki, Momokuri's Rio Sakaki) as Hanabi Kawai, who ranked #1 in the entrance exam Hibiku Yamamura (Arata The Legend's Kikuri/Hime-Ou, Robot Girls Z's Belgas V5, Kiznaiver's Noriko Sonozaki) as Mio Kusakai, who ranked #2 in the entrance exam Rie Takahashi (Captain Earth's Ayana Aizawa, Maho Girls Precure!'s Mirai Asahina, Alderamin on the Sky's Nanaku Daru) as Rin Rokudō
For fans of the manga, you are going to get 6 bonus anime which haven't been revealed whether it's extras, shorts, or ovas
Keijo!!!!!!!! Anime's Home Video Releases Get 6 'Bonus Anime'
The official website for the television anime of Daichi Sorayomi's aquatic sports manga Keijo!!!!!!!! (Hip Whip Girl) announced on Wednesday that all six Japanese Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video releases for the series will come with a "completely new bonus anime." The announcement didn't state if the six bonus anime will be extra episodes or another type of video content.
The first home video release is slated for November 23, with the five subsequent volumes slated for each of the following months after that.
Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.

Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.

Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
