Cover Description: Long Ago, the peaceful planet of Blade
Star was destroyed by the evil Imperial Empire of Godram. Although most
of the inhabitants were massacred, some of the Bladdians escaped with
their secret energy source, the 'Super-Laker Crystals.'
Today, the Bladdians descendants live among us. When trouble arises
they transform into their Laker Battle Suits and become...Star Laker:
A lovely pop star, Kung Fu Laker: An angry loner, Judo Laker: A tough
chesty tomboy, Soul Laker: A spiritualist beauty, Bunny Laker: She dresses
like a large bunny.
Led by Blade Knight, who commands the 'Ultra-Space-Time Battleship,'
these defenders become Battle Team Lakers to defend the Earth from evil
forces. But an evil menace has reared it's ugly head into the Laker's
Oleana, the evil Godram Commander/Domantrix, creates a plan to destroy
the Lakers by stealing their 'Super-Laker Crystals' which are located
in a very sensitive spot. Knowing all the Lakers crave the attention
of Blade Knight, she created an illusion that gratifies their sexual
fantasies for him. Before Blade Knight can deny anything, the girls
are up in arms. With Oleana timing her monster attack during their 'guy
trouble;' the Lakers have a true battle on their hands.
The thought that I have to watch Battle Team Lakers EX again
for better plot comprehension just scares the devil out of
me. I still have to go through over 50 more hentai anime (not
to mention games), so it's just too bad that my mind drifted
off somewhere else while I was seeing BTL. I simply do not
have the time to repeat the uneventful experience.
Perhaps the plot was just too simple, and what makes it too
difficult to analyze is that it's not the type of anime that
you would dissect in an effort to find deeper meaning. In
other words, it's a no-brainer of the worst kind. Reading
the cover synopsis above? Well, you'd better, because that
cover synopsis tells more than the actual anime! Bah! Why
do I even bother? I can just say I slept through most of it,
which is true. Perhaps it was because I was tired and dizzy
from work. Nah! That most plausible explanation for my disinterest
stems from the fact that there weren't even "decent"
ecchi scenes to make up for the lack of story and the so-so
artwork. The only thing that had kept me half-awake was the
observation that the school uniforms were obviously copied
from Fushigi Yuugi. That's it. Nothing else out of the ordinary.
Oh, but it wasn't half as bad as Co-Ed
Affairs, so I guess there's still hope.
