Receptionedit

Andy Hanley of UK Anime Network, in reviewing the first five episodes, found little originality in the anime series, which he called: "a cavalcade of tired old tropes and plot devices, from a visit to a hot springs to a 'date' where the couple are spied on by jealous friends, extending all the way out to the show's various characters and beyond"1

Notesedit

  1. ^ Kodama forgives the Finian twins when they offer her the penguin stuffed animalch 16
  2. ^ In the anime, during Azuki's duel with Kai Kuragasa, when Takeru interferes, Azuki inadvertently loses her panties, causing further embarrassment
  3. ^ In the anime's first season, Syria remains a girl; she falls in love with Takeru when he shows a cool-looking stance to protect Haruko, during the volleyball match between Venus and Maken-ki Takeru jumps in and accidentally lands on Syria instead of Haruko, much to Kodama's annoyance because of Syria's chest
  4. ^ In Funimation's numbering of the series, Episode 13, " It's Summer! It's Swimsuits! It's Training Camp!", was part of season 1
  1. ^ a b TV Tokyo used an after-midnight programming schedule for Maken-ki! Two, thus, the premiere episode was broadcast on January 15, 2014 at 25:30, which is the same as January 16, 2014 at 1:30am JST Dates in this article reflect the actual date3
