Sainglain's Hot Spring Bod

So we're gonna talk about Ixion Saga DT again! You all remember the beach episode they had featuring this adorable hunk Sainglain, right?

Well I guess the artists of this show just can't resist drawing his muscled bod, because a mere two episodes later (that would make this episode 7) . . .

They do a hot springs episode(!!!)

Geez, a beach episode and a hot spring episode, and they're practically right next to each other? I guess that's the kind of show this is!

Anyway, we first see annoying main character, Kon, frolicking and whatnot.

But all that splashing has got his bathing companion, Sainglain, wet.
Not cool, dude. This is Sainglain's peeved face.
Doesn't Kon know you're not supposed to jump into hotsprings? And no horseplay, either!
He needs a spanking.
And Sainglain's just the man to give him one!

Not paying attention, Kon is easily caught.
(what large hands! *__*)

Held upside down like a little kid, Kon frantically tries to cover his balls.

This is an . . . interesting way to lecture someone on bathing etiquette.

Embarrassment fetishists, you're welcome!

 After carrying him around for a bit, Sainglain throws him in the drink! (aww, no spanking)

(but we do get a beefy ass shot)

Now that a pecking order's been established, they can proceed to bathe in harmony.
How relaxing~

Until . . .
Something, er, apparently develops a mind of it's own.
"Clara" >_>

Best plot twist ever. It's like Ranma 1/2, except of being turned into a chick when exposed to cold water, Kon just wants to screw/be screwed by Sainglain!

Just give in, Kon. The fandom has spoken. From now on you're going to love muscular man pecs, juicy man buttocks, and virile man cocks. And there's nothing you can do about it.

Embarrassed by his throbbing hard-on, Kon hastily retreats!

 He spends the rest of the episode trying to figure out why his boner won't go down. No I'm not kidding. (sad note: it turns out he wasn't actually aroused by seeing Sainglain naked : /)

Let's cheer ourselves up over lost opportunities! Kon later finds Sainglain in some sort of . . . fucked up cafe for cat lovers?

OH MY GOD SO CUTE. (the cat too!)

All right. Sorry Sainglain, I legitimately want to marry you now. Men who love animals always win points with me.
This show loves its baths. A few episodes later (episode 10!) Sainglain takes another one.

This one is really short though and only has these two shots. But it clearly was put in just to remind the audience how sexy Sainglain is.

Goddammit this show is sorta starting to grow on me.


  1. Please oh dear God please let this show be licensed in America. FUNimation, preferably. It's a comedy and it's based off of another CAPCOM property. And Sanglain is fucking hot. What's not to like? :)

  2. sadly from what i have heard episode 12 will be the last episode as the series hasnt received great ratings, i actually hope what im saying is wrong because i absolutely love the show and would like to see a lot more of it. It's histerical and it doesn't take itself seriously. Its more concerned with the comedy than the actual story, which is awesome.

    I wonder if the poor ratings have to do with the fact that one of the main characters is a transexual, ive seen a lot of people commenting on how they dont like it and how she should have been a stereotypical female lead, probably more than 1 teenager thought she was cute till she spoke haha. sigh o well

    BUT ANYWAYS, Sanglain is super hot i love him and when i saw him in the first episode i knew that i would keep watching just for him, but by the third episode the show had my attention beyond him as well. Hes not only sexy, but super smart! apparently he graduated at the top of his class and is a great architect. Talk about the whole package.

  3. loool is this an action anime? I would never expect something like that even if it's not true in the end. Epic plot twist instead.

    1. It looks like an offbeat and zany action/fantasy show, yeah!

  4. Cat-petting shops actually exist in Japan. Since the Japanese usually don't have any time to raise pets or are frowned upon to raise one, shops like that where you can spend time with cats for a fee are abundant.

  5. Merry Christmas Croup, Love your site!
