Anime: Najica Blitz Tactics
Najica & Lila.
An extraordinary scent and the fragrance of destiny. Najica Hiiragi, special agent for a secret organization, receives her mission assignments along with a single rose. Glorious missions more lovely than a bullet and more dangerous than love itself; these are what make up Najica Blitz Tactics.

The Panties Persuade You!

If that sounds to you like one seriously two-faced show, you're right. The 2001 series Najica Blitz Tactics is a panty shot parade, in which no opportunity is spared to show women's (usually white) undergarments. This also means that no woman wears any pants ever and miniskirts are considered appropriate mission attire.

Najica Hiiragi works as a perfume creator by day and as an undercover agent by night. Her ability to solve any case, how hard it may be, has garnered her a lot of respect within the underground agency she works for. The fact that she has a very distinguishing sense of smell also is of great help.

Najica's latest assignment is to rescue a kidnapped girl, Lila, who turns out to be Humarit ZZZ (a humarit is a highly advanced android). After the mission, Najica is assigned to be Lila's master and to bring her along on future missions, a task which she grudgingly accepts. Lila not only turns out to be a very formidable partner during her missions, but Najica gradually warms up to her personally as well.

Najica is directed by Katsuhiko Nishijima and produced by Studio Fantasia, who were also responsible for Agent Aika.

A three-volume manga cuts the panty shot amount by about 90%, as it's quite more action-oriented, ignoring Najica's Character Development in the process.

Tropes:

  • Twelve Episode Anime
  • Action Girl: Just about every major character, leading to a...
  • After the End: From the visible scenery the world was apparently flooded and at least one big war happened, seeing how some of the missions take place in destroyed cities.
  • Amazon Brigade: Many villains' armies are composed mainly of this. Strangely averted for the good guys, which are mostly men in proper combat gear.
  • Artificial Human: Lila and later others.
  • Author Appeal: Katsuhiko Nishijima likes panty shots, okay?
  • Badass Adorable: Lila may have all the qualifications for a little-sister-type, but she packs huge guns and has incredible physical strength, which she puts to good use.
  • Badass Normal: Najica, who can hold her own against some very tough opponents.
  • Bait and Switch: In episode 4, Najica and Lila investigate a pop group called the 4 Seasons to determine which one is actually the humarit Triple I. Much to their shock, none of them is Triple I. It turns out that their manager, Ai, is actually Triple I.
  • Beach Episode: Sort of. It's still a mission but features the protagonists in some very revealing swimwear for most of it.
  • Between My Legs: Being the Panty Fighter that it is, this show has several of these to make the panty shot easier on skirted characters.
  • Beware of the Nice Ones: Serina is a humarit that has a kind and loving heart. However, if anyone tries to get between her and Yoshiki, she will end them.
  • Blasting It out of Their Hands
