Akikan ("Empty Can") is the unlikely story of high school boy Kakeru Daichi, whose can of melon juice soda magically transforms into a human girl. More "akikan" girls begin appearing, each of them needing to be infused with carbon dioxide from their respective drink types to survive. The akikans were created as part of the 'Akikan Elect' to determine whether steel cans or aluminium cans are superior. The akikans must battle each other until only the strongest can type is left standing.
This story has the part which was created by referencing Wikipedia, so the licence of GFDL is applied to this story.

I think that setting is interesting.

[Bad point]
Content is childish.
The gag is cold.
Half an erotic.

[Comprehensive evaluation]

I think that setting is interesting, but the story is childish and can not be absorbed.
Although it is the setting of a high school student, it is contents of junior high school level level in terms of content, and it seemed to be only for children's play.

Drink juice and kiss. It has already developed with romantic feelings here, and I do not know the reason why affection came.
Tsundere forever. I get tired of halfway.

The focus point is interesting! I was impressed with that unconsciously so I thought that the character was pretty cute Nori is quite good and can be fun

[Bad point]
Drawing was too unstable and subtle

In real time I was thinking that Jake, you are thinking that it is a skimmer thing but I like this kind of work in any way like B class I'm pretty cheap but I can see it with great relief

However, since the point of view was good, I thought that I could have made it more carefully I thought that there was no budget and I was poor ...

I think that it seems to be said that it is a delusion animation for boys and high school students.
The content is slap harem boys girls Moe battle erotic animation ... is.
The setting is so strange that it is so strange that it can not be written.
Because many adult terms come out, it is not suitable for children.

It starts suddenly with a kiss scene with a heroine [melon].
After that, the story that will not be accepted by ordinary people starts for a while.

There is little content.
I feel like seeing a beautiful girl Moe.
The rest is the one person's stage of the main character [Kaze].
I think that it is good to clean up with [Kaku] and [Melon] 's love comedy.

I personally like it, so I'd like to do a [good] evaluation.

I was afraid of personification of juice cans. It was an era when you could see such things with animation.

Especially for battle Typique of anime which the temple is forgotten to the temple-like story line as a highlight or character

Melon soda can fairy Melon and men's high school student Love comedy with a focus on Kakeru.
It is a work ("Akkin Elect.") Worked by can fairies as requested by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry to unify the can of beverages with either steel or aluminum.

[good point]

When I drink canned juice, I like the setting of a can girl fairy (Akkan) to be realized in a form kissing with a drinking person.
In addition, I think that the person who drank became the owner, setting the master-slave relationship with Akikan as a principle, but setting that does not obediently obey the tsundere with melon will make this work fun.
Melon is a fan of the Hanshin Tigers and makes us forget that it is a fairy that is obsessed with a specific real team.
The previous term OP "Miracle. Plan was made!" Was a good impression.
I think that it is interesting that the musicality is excluded and ED has the theme of different drinks every 12 talks every time.

[Bad point]

Although it is somewhat familiar if it comes to the second half, balance of drawing is still bad.
It is hard to hear abnormalities in the tone of a buddy's tone. I think that it is inevitable to some extent on the setting of an infant, but it was tough for me.
It might be a gag aim, but the setting that is a gay of Masaya Hidehiko was unpleasant.
It is regrettable that it is biased towards battle. In my personal opinion, if I set it to be able to attend school, I think that I wanted to expand in the center of the school life, not "Akkan. I think that Melon's character could be used successfully.

[Comprehensive evaluation]

The character setting is good, and even if you close your eyes on drawing, it is regrettable that the battle has gotten too close to you. Evaluation is "normal".

Although it is mainly a downward story work, it is not vulgar, it is a hero, Kakeru says what it is,
I liked that he thought of melon at once and that there was a hot place.

However, Kakel's familiarity with childhood friend did not have a favorable impression. It was a kind of gentle character, but I was overwhelmed with my promise,
As soon as Kakel and Melon were walking together, embracing the hatred of Kakeru,
It was impressive to let the ale attack it and make a big injury.

Also, the loud character that Mr. Hidemi Haya said downwardly more than Kakeru, and a gay man who likes men was also impressive. Also, the secretary 's interaction with Kisaki was interesting.

In the final stage, though it became serious, I thought that I did a good way to tighten it.

It is a messy setup, but I personally do not dislike it.

Both the theme song and OP are good.
It matches with a stubborn content.

Mr. Jun Fukuyama, Mr. Nobuhiko Okamoto, Mr. Yuki Akira is a director.
Gigolo-kun is doing good character w

[Bad point]

Eleventh episode is wastefully too serious.
Moreover, the drawing has been changed as if it were a different work.

"Rare scene" is rarely not so many, "abnormally serious dialogue" abnormally w
After all, was the television broadcast version cut?

I wanted to make it more content adapted to the original.

[Good point] The hero is stupid, comedy.
[Bad point] Contents are slightly flaky.
[Comprehensive evaluation]
OVA 's ED is a pure song of get wild no way. No, it was fun.
Regardless of the contents, gag is quite funny. The setting itself that cans become girls is already pretentious.

It is an odd nori. Impression that male shop is just hentai of masculine house ....
Have you ever played Mr. Jun Fukuyama from the voice of the earth knackle,
He is the impression of the second generation [bare king] of this animation.
(My idea that Keita Kawahira of "Inukami" is the first [bare king].)

The frequent appearance of three tortoiseshells was a truly hint.
I was able to laugh at the petition that the owner of the final story [Mix juice Akikan] Miku (nickname Kakel) was that tortoise cat.

[Bad point]
It is the point that the nuance changes every time.

Original works were better for character drawing.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
I will assume it is very good.
It was able to be revisited of animation "White Album" aired at the same time.

Drawing is also good with beautiful girl harem animation. It is a surprising Ryosaku.
Akikan turns into a beautiful girl and becomes a faithful servant of the owner.
The story is simple, but on the way and finally there are two mountains.
Death fight between melon can and sports drink can, witch helps halfway.
The other is a battle against the strongest mix juice can. Everyone is killed by a mix can and it disappears. In the end Takeru makes a miracle.
How to put in mountains is also good.
Evaluate as good.

I heard that it was an animation which was doing around 2009, and it listened immediately. It's funny inside.

Japan is the only vending machine for juice in somewhere. Transportation, cooling, manufacturing energy ... indeed wasteful. The can juice is now pushed by a PET bottle and the can coffee accounts for the majority. Consuming contents with mouth is also different as food. Unlike cups, there is only one drinking spot. If you can open it you have to drink on the spot. It seems to be consciously odd if things like being raised or being handed over to hands are not needed from the intent 's child.

The original author must have something in the specialness of this canned juice existence. At the moment of putting a mouth on the can, a magical lamp Girls appearing in exchange for cans compulsory kiss. Completion of a rushing heroine. There is no such thing as a settlement, but there is a moderate draw while absurd. There was a work in the past that "sister" gifts for Christmas, but there was a choice of time, place and number of times (which was meaningful in choosing).

It is perfect for making chopstick breaks with making it not hateful in content. It's an inexpensive budget? Simple drawing, but I do not feel stress, so I can enjoy it as it is with fertilized eyes with Kyo's animation drawing. Even with this quality, this place may be arguing.
A kind of grammar / essence of such genre is packed in one stroke. Melon's technical call is not twisting anything "Me-ro-me-ro ~ ..." or that the cast of ale is pure and basic is a character animation.

The composition is divided into the story of the first half and the episode collection of the latter half, and it is a feeling that spotted on the standpoint of spirit of can as a speech. Though it is awkward but the setting is being used for drama of person correlation, "Akikan. There are various proportions and undulations, and the balance allocation is good. It is worrisome where the impression of the somewhat scale-earning place (especially budding entwining) and the place that feels like Kochiku (Akikan-elek) and the side character are weak. Are there any dangerous settings such as danger when the remaining beverage is low?
The hero's spoiler / serious discrimination lightly reduces the aftertaste in a good sense while adding a sharp talk.

Among the limited drawing resources, efforts and service spirit to make up for the surrounding areas as well. Especially ED is Mr. Koko's 12 changes! (Five of the story fought). OP is also two (the first half OP singing is 〓〓〓. Appearance voice actor appeared at the end of the program and follow the content and character. The last 11 to 12 talks aimed for "theater version" Akikan (indeed, it is indeed a real theatrical version etc. reckless w). It seems to be "theater version", and the eleventh episode is Akkan, and the drama's undulation and drawing is powerful. The final story is settled in a pretty pattern and the actions are also rough, but it is somewhat funny that it is trying to embark strongly on emphasis only on sound production. Rasubosu 's punch line was interesting.

Well, I just finished watching it recently, but I can not remember more than half more. I feel like something happened. Did I aim for images like a aftertaste of melon soda? Personal Best Episode is also excellent as a conclusion with 10 talks depicting the daily life of can spirits.

Evaluation seems to be something you want to do, but if you keep a distance calmly Ordinary? There will be genre like likes and dislikes, though.

I decided to watch it because I liked the character design.

I enjoyed it with comical content.

There are horny scenes, but it is a promise.

Where the voice actor of Lelouch plays out obscene serifs

As an anime lover there was another interesting thing.

Eleventh episode is stable in the picture, content is also very good


Speaking, if that level can be seen in full story,

I think that it was still better.

Gag is interesting. story.

[Bad point]
Drawing. Battle scene.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
The battle scene is subtle.
The last serious development also seems to be somewhat incongruous.
However, although there are a lot of lower neta, gag was quite funny.
It's pretty good as a love comedy.

However, I was not sure if Empty Can - Ele was eventually.
If you choose aluminum cans or steel cans in the first place, you can not empty cans "empty".

Kakeru's entangled gag is interesting.

The picture is cute.

Kizaki Arisu of the beautiful and grown-up atmosphere has a genuine part.
Both managers and Kisaki, the boss and his subordinates are also interesting.
The times when the conversation of 'Aisuke Kimi' 'Kisaki is' does not enter is so much unsatisfactory.

About 6 episodes came up to the highest as much as it seemed wrong with the last round.

BGM flowing when the easterly wind appears is cool.

[Bad point]

Drawing is not stable.

Familiarity became the lowest character in 5 episodes.
On the fact that I ordered Ale to "discourage Kakeru," causing serious injury,
What should be blamed is not ale but familiar.
Did not you understand the rule in human society such as "killing becomes a crime" in the ale of 5 episodes?

Familiar, such as showing a swinging misunderstanding that Kakeru is giving her favor,
It was already a character with a ruined part from 1 story, but it is still good if it is only Usuza.
It's completely harmful in 5 episodes.

Since five things tend to dislike familiar, even if familiar action took any action, it all began to feel cold.
I could only imagine that the scene where the body is twisted in swimming suit appearance is bad feeling.

Impossible is impossible to set familiar from multiple female characters.
Kaatsu is in a position to be protected from multiple characters.

Familiarity only looks like a type disliked by women.
Nude natural, cluttering the room, being kept protected, get angry as soon as you do not like yourself,
Jealous, I do not like someone that is convenient for me,
Even though I do not feel like going out with my opponent to come near, I do not say so clearly.
From the name, is it a character for fishing viewers who prefer female characters with the setting of "hero's childhood friend"?

Because easterly wind and ale are type which seems cool from the viewpoint of women,
I can understand if they are from women.

A female character who got a favor with familiarity (including not being love affection)
Dongfeng, Yale, Buddha

It is better for East Wind to stick with Jigorau.
Familiar is sometimes worried about treating Yale as a servant.
There is no consideration for conversation with Yale.
Would not it be nice even if my buddies and familiar had no contacts until near the final round?

Char ale which keeps familiar, Kakeru, east wind

I can not like female characters that are protected from multiple characters, such as Mushi of "Fushigi Yugi", Yu of "Flame of Fiery Fire".

It is vulgar enough to think that the conversation is 18 ban.
Therefore, it is difficult to understand the target age group.

Moe Otah Other than men, it is a style that is unlikely to be popular.
I do not say what I am a woman ...

The main character 's bottomless story full opening fictional mode is interesting, was it an animated cartoon character, was it thought that it was original? To the extent that it is.
Although the depiction is shallow, despite the protagonist's morphological behavior,
It is good to be drawn as a nice guy.

[Bad point]
There is nothing to talk about.
Personally I do not mind, drawing is not a polite class.
Other than the protagonist is a setting precedent, character description that should be strange is inadequate. If you do not paint a lily attack against familiarity of easterly wind (Kokakazu), unhappiness of character Goro, for the first time for Melon Tsundere, the persuasive power to the story does not come out. If it says that this lightness seems to be true, it is impression that power is not enough as a gag or a character.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
"usually". It is easy to see with person shaping and character depiction which brought in garage or eroge setting as it is to animation (to say to original novelbe), but there are not much leftover.
Since the bottom netatalk talk of the hero is funny inside, it is okay for it, it is good to recognize that I can look at my spare time.

It's simply funny and I'm not getting tired of seeing it (but I do not need the second term w)
Because the gag is the main, even if there was some doubt in the story it did not matter much

However, since we have too many lower neta terms too far, we do not recommend those who are not good at it. I will keep the evaluation "Good"

Honestly, horror animation that is the most scary of collapse of drawing!

The original is more interesting.
Not bad, but everyone retires in drawing.
I recommend you leave this to read the original.

However, it is wonderful that the personality of the character was exactly given thanks to the people with powerful voice actors.

It is not bad. The character is cute. Attachment also boils to the hero. I only see one episode but I feel refreshed. I think personal bonus seems to be a snake, but I can have a favorable feeling for melon. It is lovely because it is a valid tsundere character. I do not have much relationship, but after watching this animation it seems hesitant to throw away empty cans. I also want to try the first kiss of melon soda taste, it is a dream that will not come true .. However, comfort is good if you get familiar with listening while radio waves are mixed in the opening.

Very good bargain animation.
As far as I watched the first time I thought that this was a ridiculous B class animation, but the setting where a fairy fighter appears from an empty can is very funny and somehow my attachment is like, "Yoshi, class B animation" Let's cheer with the feeling that it is cute. I continued watching with the feeling that.

After that, as drawing repeatedly, drawing and story became good, and it is truly delightful that recently it became one of popular animation of this term.
The final episode seemed like this animation, and I was amazed at the pseudo impression and nonsense.
It was worthwhile to support from the beginning.

[good point]

The characters are fine-grained and give a good taste, and the correlation is really clever.
Melon X ale (rival relation of steel can to aluminum can), familiar X ale (relationship of master of slaves of Lily of Lily), Kakeru X familiar (familiar childhood friend), Melon X Familiar (Actually love enemies over Kakeru), Dongfeng X familiar (Dongfeng's unilateral love), Dongfeng X-goro (contempt and adoration), Gingaro dug in Okama ... I enjoyed entertainment relationship.

Also, as I said before, this was a very high color effect such as melon's green and yellow, ale blue and purple purple.
I think that it is not easy to see animations with good color effect.

[Bad point]

I wonder if the opening songs were better in the first half period. Well, things in the second half are also good, though.
Although "voice ending appendix" in which voice actors appeared seemed like pros and cons, it seems that such a thing is also wonderful.
Personally it seems like Akikan 's trivia has become cluttered, does not it?

[Comprehensive evaluation]

I could not watch stress and I enjoyed it very much.
If you want a greed you wanted a little more melon's sex appeal, it is a "very good" evaluation.

It is fresh and fun to the contrary that it is done at this time with this stupid setting.
Is it a comfort that you can see without thinking of this?
The story is straightforward, the name of the character is straightforward It feels like this has not been recently.
However, the hero was fresh in the true meaning in such a sticky state.
This lineage is an all-inclusive harem where all the women coming out are falling in love with me, an insightful position that the character and the behavior of the hero are passive and passive and heroines are calmly tackled ... I hate this So I did not dislike Moe animation at all, but I always retired on the way for this reason.
That's why I went to take this laugh by myself or something down, but I did not really dislike it,
A hero who is cool in a strange place is good ~ is good ~ if it is a love comer it is an ideal hero.
The degree of sweetness of this heroine 's tsundere is also exactly right for him. Other characters are also interesting.
In addition, it is also good that people who have bad bad positions in the hero who is unhappy always have her candidates properly .. well, it was nothing to do with animation.
Although the problem is drawing, it is watching while thinking "Well no matter how much we have to move it gaudy".
If at least the whole story was about 11 episodes of drawing level at least, I might have raised the evaluation more.
I just want to evaluate that I do not use the other party 's Paloneta which I often have in such a gag work, for laughter.

I want to make a girl own property,
Make it small and put it out only when convenient,

I thought that it was a work that fulfilled such a desire of a man.

However, psychological depiction was unrealistic, I could not sympathize at all, I could not feel appeal to the hero, heroine either.

The viewing ended in 15 minutes of the first episode.
