Japanese Title: Plunderer
Studios: A-1 Pictures

Go-to for your average action anime series to enjoy some good fanservice.
In the world of Plunderer, everyone has a count somewhere in their body that increases or decreases depending on something unique to each person. Hina, our protagonist, is told by her mother to find one of the Aces when she is dragged into the “Abyss” (something that happens when a person’s count reaches 0). Aces are the supposed ultimate heros from a war that took place roughly 300 years ago. After her mother’s presumed demise, Hina goes on a long journey looking for one of the Aces who are identifiable by a white star next to their count.
I can’t find many things to say about this anime. It’s mediocre at best. Some story arcs feel rushed making it difficult to become invested in the scenes or connect with newly introduced characters. Most characters are lacklustre, some more annoying than I care to admit and overall pretty generic. The comedic moments consists of mostly molesting and groping women which were a little funny early on I admit, but at certain times, it feels too repetitive and even a little creepy. However, at the end of the day, it’s just anime. On a good note, there are some interesting battle moments and the animation overall is pretty good. The ecchi scenes are also great, consisting of many thigh shots but unfortunately no up-skirts shots, despite how much it’s teased; which I was pretty sad about.
If you’re watching this anime, I’d suggest not to take it too seriously and just enjoy the fanservice for what it is because some episodes are actually pretty creative. The author is able to execute Slice-of-Life aspects of the series quite well. If the fan service were slightly less disappointing, I could rate it higher.
I rate this anime 6/10.
Recommendations: If you enjoyed this anime, consider watching The Seven Deadly Sins. They have roughly a similar premise of girl in search for a powerful man.
