AIKa R-16: Virgin Mission

Watched the last episode of Virgin Mission last night.  Virgin Mission is the prequel to Agent Aika.  I have to say that Virgin Mission is like ten times better than Agent Aika.

The story is set 10 years before the events of Agent Aika.  Aika is a high school student who just recently passed her salvager license test.  She is then contacted by the class president, Eri, to join the Treasure Hunter Club as their pilot.  Aika meets Karen who has a tattoo on her breast of a butterfly, but upon closer examination, the tattoo is actually comprised of numbers that translates to "the gate of the truth will be opened by the sleeping butterfly" and a set of coordinates.  The three of them set out to go to the coordinates as the first outing of the Treasure Hunting Club.

The series still has the expected fanservice as the original.  I believe there is also more nudity in this series vs. Agent Aika.  Again the story isn't exactly good, but its not bad either.  The story in my opinion is better than Agent Aika.  Again the fanservice is still the main focus of the series.  The ending is equally as lame as Agent Aika's.  

Of the two series, I actually wouldn't mind watching this series over again.  Agent Aika on the other hand...  Same recommendation as Agent Aika.  If you're looking for a deep story, steer clear, but if you want a fanservice anime, this'll be for you.  At three episodes long, you can watch the whole thing in one sitting.
