Air Master

img_7Air Master (エアマスター ) is a seinen manga written and illustrated by Yokusaru Shibata. The story focuses on Maki Aikawa, an ex-gymnast turned street fighter. The manga was serialized in the Hakusensha magazine Young Animal from 1997 to 2006 and has been collected into 28 tankōbon (bound volumes). A 27-episode anime adaptation was produced by Toei Animation and originally aired on Japan’s Nippon Television from April 1 to September 23, 2003.

A former gymnast, Aikawa Maki has turned her skills to a different way of life—street fighting. The only thing that truly makes her feel alive is violence. With amazing power and grace, she fights opponent after opponent, repeatedly demonstrating the gymnastic talent that earns her her nom de guerre, “Airmaster.” I recommend this show to anyone who wants to see some interesting fights that don’t have much in the way of the typical copouts (like hurled energy beams or blurred strikes that are supposedly too quick to see). For those viewers, the key rating is 7 of 10 for enjoyment. People who don’t care much about fights and want some real character development and substance to the story should look elsewhere.
