Season 1 episodes (12)

1 The Day We Swore to Heaven
Takeru's first day at the Tenbi Academy is full of fights and panties. After accidentally kissing a second-year girl, she challenges him to a duel in front of the entire student body. Without a Maken or Element, how is he supposed to protect himself?
2 Girls Are Amazing
The beginning of the school year could only mean one thing: time for physical exams! But after getting caught peeking in on the girls from his class, Takeru finds out that he's an anomaly at Tenbi, and that no Maken can be matched to him.
3 Welcome to Maken-ki
Takeru decides to join the Security Committee! To welcome its new members, the Committee takes a trip to the hot springs. Things are going well until a bear shows up, giving the girls of the Tenbi Academy a chance to show off their special powers.
4 The Enemy Is at Tenbi
Himegami asks Takeru to go on a shopping date?! Of course, she has an ulterior motive: to inspect the mysterious mark on Takeru's chest. Sounds easy enough, but her plans are interrupted by her roommates, her fan club, and an unknown stalker.
5 The Strongest Girl in Tenbi
It's time for the clubs at Tenbi to negotiate their annual budgets! Takeru and Uru try to work together to help the Security Committee, but their work is interrupted by an assailant who claims to be responsible for the random acts of violence on campus.
6 Like Rain on a Sunny Day
Since Takeru's first day at Tenbi, Inaho has called him her fiancé. On a rainy night, the story of their past together is revealed, and Takeru's Elemental powers surface in order to protect his friend (and an adorable new addition to the household).
7 The Goddesses Who Came Down to Tenbi
A group of beautiful, powerful transfer students arrive at Tenbi in order to root out a mysterious secret society. But before they can get to work, they'll have to prove their strength against the girls of Makenki in an epic volleyball showdown.
8 Syria Will Give You Everything
Syria is Tenbi's newest transfer student, and she's taken quite an interest in Takeru! What does she plan to do with him in the disused shack on the outskirts of campus?!
9 Stormy Games
The boys of Tenbi Academy petition the faculty for co-ed swim classes (for the sake of gender equality, of course). Naturally, the girls protest. There's only one way to solve this dilemma: a boys-versus-girls water fight full of swimsuits and nosebleeds!
10 The Girls of Light and Shadow
If Takeru fails his Element practical again, he'll be kicked out of Makenki! Meanwhile, there's something not quite right about Minerva, the newest member of Venus to transfer to Tenbi. Why is she confronting Himegami in the woods?
11 Macaron Limited-Time Only Service Day
Takeru gets a Maken! The secret history of Makenki! A dangerous new threat! But most important, the girls of the Security Committee don their skimpiest outfits and get jobs at the local maid cafe in order to pay for their bikini-filled summer camp.
12 Protectors of Paradise
Kamigari kidnaps Haruko as part of an incomprehensible evil scheme concerning Takeru's untapped powers. When things backfire and Takeru goes out of control, only one person can stop him from destroying Tenbi Academy.

About this show

Takeru enrolls in Tenbi Academy—an all-girl school that just went co-ed—with dreams of being smothered by chicks. To his surprise, it's actually a school where teens beef up their combat skills using a magic power called a Maken. Distracted by all the bouncy brawlers, Takeru gets himself in a sticky situation—the hornball can't figure out how to use his Maken!

Overall not the greatest, but I've seen worse too. I would still watch season 2 if available here. It always seems to get really good when it hits that point when seeing boobs or panty shots is appreciated, but doesn't make the protagonist entirely lose their mind. Don't get me wrong, the fan service is nice, but not as entertaining when it becomes the focal point of each scene again and again. Season 1 seems to end right at that point.

It's an awesome anime if you're looking for a before-bed harem. I wouldn't say it's an anime for everyone, but it's worth giving it a shot if you're not sure.

FUNimation is my favorite anime network! My favorite shows are High school DXD, The Dragon Ball Series, One Piece, and Samurai Champloo! Looks like I can find a spot for MAKEN-KI!
