Sailor Victory is a fun-filled romp through the genres of fighting robot teams and sailor-suited heroines. These sailors are normal girls leading normal lives until danger threatens their town. Then they trade their mild-mannered identities for their sailor suits and ninja robots and race out to defend the innocent.
Filled with virtually all of the stereotypes found in anime, Sailor Victory takes no prisoners when it comes to satirizing the well-worn concept of hidden identity fighting teams. The characters seem to revel in their stereotypical roles and often break the fourth wall to comment, somewhat self-serving, on the coolness of whatever they just saw. Sailor Victory further exploits it by adding in strong character designs, better than average production design and a laugh-out-loud script. All together, this adds up to 60 minutes of pure joy that leaves you wishing for more.
Volume 1: "Sailor Victory" Plot Summary:
Sailor Victory is set on a planet at the far edge of the universe but it is really not that different from our own. There, though it is a thoroughly modern society, complete with TVs and giant robots, everything is cast in the style of Edo-period Japan. This means that the skyscrapers have curved, tiled roofs, like traditional Japanese temples and the clothing has the flared shoulders and long skirts of the period.
Everything is peaceful except for the crooks who use their huge, well-armed and armored robots to rob the citizens are an enormous scale. The cops, with small, weak robots, can only wave their banners and protest the actions, as they are powerless to stop them.
Enter Sailor Victory. The team of three ninja-based robots have been waiting for just this moment and they rush in. But, being three inexperienced girls at the core, they don't always have the smoothest ride.
The burning question, of course, is can Sailor Victory manage to defeat the crooks and keep their secret identities hidden? Tune in and find out!
