Sekai Seifuku Episode 4: Watch the Show Because This Screenshot is Perfect


Sekai Seifuku is still a treat
The way it escalates is quite a feat.
Rather than relying on bombast
Or a cheap focus on loli ass
Sekai Seifuku proves itself deft
With development, it’s hardly bereft.

Though Kate is adorable as always
Here she’s not the show’s Raison d’être
That honor goes to the Ukrainian
And her robot companion
There was never more a stealer of show
Than Natasha and her Roboko


Though the show refuses to be dour
From heavy subjects it does not cower
Separated from wonder and magic
Is Natasha, her childhood tragic
Obsessive, brusque, and withdrawn
Over fairytales she does not fawn
To robotics she gives her attention
Much to her parents’ contention.

Though she acts normal and unfazed
Abandonment has tainted her future days
Insecurity taints her sleep
Though saddened she does not weep
It’s noticeable, if smartly downplayed
The direction’s well worth accolades


Sekai Seifuku does not falter
When treading really dicey waters
On the contrary it’s quite stellar
At being a deft storyteller
It speaks volumes in its favor
When it can provide moments to savor
Without compromising its light tone
Or focusing on comedy alone.

And of course it is always great
To see the wonder and awe of Kate.
Her consumption and joy most pure
Of Robot Butler holds great allure.


But now I know for damn sure
Roboko is officially best girl

    A bit dull episode for me, especially after the awesomeness that was the smoke episode, but the scene of the pistil and stamen makes up for it spectacularly.

    I watch this for the male butts and Roboko.

      Both being good reasons.

      I watch it for Roboko ass.

      I mean seriously, the opening especially shows that she has some fine rebooty!

    Two things about this episode I loved:

    1) The beeeeeeeep noise Kate made.
    2) Roboko’s dial up noise when she was fighting.

    Also, great work with the witty rhyming.

      First I thought that dial up noise meant she would establish a connection with the enemy robots to hack them.

    I like this show, but I’m not totally sure why.

    The male lead character ran away from home. That’s basically all the backstory we have on him. He’s sorta like this nondescript male version of Alice thrown into a crazy wonderland of characters. He’s just there for the other characters to bounce off of and kick around. And even though they are bent on concurring the world no one on this show is truly evil.

    My gut instinct is telling me that the writers of this somewhat silly show are more clever then they initially appear to be. Either that or Venera’s powers of persuasion are working on me and I’m on my way to becoming one of her minions.

    This episode reminded me of Little Witch Academia for some reason.

      I thought that too! It’s because of Natasha’s witchy-look and the RPG’s references while going down that dungeon.

    Agreed, Roboko is the best
