Seikon no Qwaser – First Impressions

Seikon no Qwaser is the first anime off my interesting Winter 2010 list. It first caught my eye because of the poster but really grabbed my interest when I read through the plot synopsis. I usually stick to shows in genres that I like but stay away from the crazy stuff overloaded with fanservice or crazy themes but for some reason I couldn’t resist giving Seikon no Qwaser a watch and after digesting the first couple episodes I decided to do a first impressions post.

Seikon no Qwaser is based off a manga called The Qwaser of Stigmata. The story and setting is heavily influenced by the Eastern Orthodox church and follows Alexander, a mysterious silver haired younster known as a “Qwaser” with the ability to control iron. Mafuyu Oribe and Tomo Yamanobe are Japanese students of the St. Mihailov Academy whose lives are changed forever when they encounter Alexander, or Sasha he is often called. Sasha and other Qwasers they encounter draw their powers from a scared liquid known as Soma and things just start getting crazy from there.

Soma = Breast Milk

Seikon no Qwaser is definately for mature audiences that like or can endure large bouncing breasts, upskirt shots and other things that make this show borderline 2d porn. I must confess that the story and action I have seen so far is not as crappy as when I first tried to watch Queens Blade. As long as you can swallow the breast milk (*giggle*) references and don’t get offended my religious references and pantsu shots every couple seconds I guessing you will enjoy this show. Expecting good things from it and I’ll be watching the entire series and maybe even check out the manga afterward to see how it compares.
