Characters that made my year – Saeko Busujima (12 Days of Christmas: Day 11)

December 24, 2010

Today is all about fanservice as this series was pure fan pandering.  Now normally I have this knee-jerk reaction of hate to this type of fanservice heavy series, but I massively enjoyed today’s show and character.  So today let’s remember the wonder of bullet-time boobs, as the eleventh Day of Christmas brings us Saeko Busujima from High School of the Dead!

Saeko is awesome – there’s no other way to describe the girl.  She’s the best fighter with some of the best action scenes, she’s voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro and she is perfectly happy going into battle with hordes of zombies clad only in a pair of knickers and an apron…..oh and her breasts can move faster than a speeding bullet – now that’s a real life skill!  Saeko may only be a side character, but she’s much more interesting, useful and a lot less irritating than the official main girl Rei… assaulting Saeko and groping her boobs will only make her fight the incoming zombie masses with even more gusto, whereas the other HOTD girls would probably cry/shout/slap you.  In the grand scheme of things Saeko is pretty shallow (well all the characters in HOTD are – it’s a shallow show), but she never fails to be interesting and her graceful, but effective fighting style was a joy to watch.

It was difficult to pick one moment for Saeko – naked apron on top of Humvee was pretty damn awesome, as was motorbike flying spin attack and bullet-time boobs, but I instead went for episode nine’s Saeko-centric episode where she to spend some alone time with Takashi, a bit of back story and then the aforementioned boob-groping which leads to Saeko unlocking her inner demons to really let rip on the undead threatening her & Takashi’s love shack temple hide-away, ultimately ending with a freezeframe of Saeko smiling dementedly with the caption ‘I’m Wet!’  Ah Madhouse, you are awesome.

    I don’t like the anime adaptation of HOTD but it is impossible not to like Saeko.

      I haven’t read the manga, but the anime was pure popcorn entertainment – Saeko was the best character in it by a mile

    Saeko won my vote after she confessed that she enjoyed killing things and felt no guilt at all 🙂

      That was a brilliant moment – Saeko firmly made it into my favourites at that point!

    Saeko and her bullet time boobies were a pair of the only good things from this show. I’m very impressed by Miyuki Sawashiro’s ranged skill, in playing boyish characters like Kurenai or Suruga from Bakemonogatari, cutesy ones like Mataro from Zetsubou Sensei or Boss from Maria-Holic, and womanly characters like Saeko or Maria from Arakawa. Her shout of ecstasy, “I’m wet!” is unforgettable.

      Sawashiro really does have an impressive range, I really liked how she voiced Saeko too.

      Bullet time boobs = definitely on of the highlights of the year, solely for how creative and OTT a piece of fanservice that was.
