Anime / Akahori Gedou Hour Lovege

Go To

A summer 2005 Quirky Work (Anime First) created by Satoru Akahori that flirts with the fourth wall, old hero tropes, good and evil and the mixup thereof, and explosions. Lots of explosions. Consists of two smaller shows, Zettai Seigi Love Pheromone and Soreyuke! Gedou Otome Tai.

Zettai Seigi Love Pheromone stars Aimi and Kaoruko, wannabe comedians and heroes of justice. As their manager, Tomokazu Seki (played by himself), attempts to find them a job so they can rise to superstardom, their hair trigger natures and motto of "Anything can be done in the name of justice!" frequently end in their would-be places of employment crashing to the ground.

The other half of the show, Soreyuke! Gedou Otome Tai tells the story of the five Hokke sisters, who are currently suffering from the double whammy of Parental Abandonment and Perpetual Poverty. The family consists of, from oldest to youngest, Otone, Maika, Yoku, Kanashi, and Utano. They happen to be the daughters of mooks from an evil organization. One day, they release the Sealed Evil in a Can Akumako, an imp who rested in a vase dad left behind. Akumako tells them that to carry on their parents' wishes, they must become "evil". To attempt this, they become the Gedou Otome Tai, a team of Magical Girls bent on carrying out evil. But they're just so darn nice...

    Applies to Both 
  • Beach Episode:
    • Love Pheromone: The second part of Episode 7 has Aimi and Kaoruko trying a gig at a resort.
    • Gedou Otome Tai: The first part of Episode 9 has the girls go to the beach where they meet three Kaiju.
  • Big Eater: Gedou Otome Tai: Otone, capable of downing ten bowls of noodles in thirty minutes. And when all the guys at the shop are cheering for her great accomplishment, she's awkwardly thinking "actually, I'm still hungry".

    Love Pheromone 

  • To the Batpole! — It's revealed that Love Pheromone's house is rigged to have slides to the mecha's docking bay in the closet and the bathroom — and it's the toilet's flusher that drops Aimi down to the slide. The cord in the middle of the room, however, flushes the toilet.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight — Sekiman. He apologizes to a clerk for using the washroom he used to transform in AND goes to the top of a building in a crowded elevator in his superhero outfit without getting any weird looks.

    Gedou Otome Tai 

  • Chekhov's Gun — Episode 4 opens with a flashback to Otone noticing a pendant in the window of a jewelry store. We don't know what it is until the near end, where it's revealed it is a Kaijin Revival Crystal, an item used to revive any dead Kaijin/underlings (like the Gedou Otometai's father), which is used by Otone to revive the cicada-themed Kaijin the Gedou Otometai met earlier in the episode that died close to the end.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience — Subverted. Despite the devil wings and the all-black color scheme, they're not evil in the slightest.
  • Elemental Powers — Water, Fire, Earth, Wood and Light, from oldest to youngest.
  • Go-to-Sleep Ending: Exaggerated in episode 11. The Zettai Seigi Love Pheromone part took a considerable amount of time; leaving less than a minute remaining for Soreyuke! Gedou Otome Tai. So what do the characters do in that part in the short amount of time, take a nap!
