Ship in a Bottle is a fantasy magical girl saga that takes place in contemporary times. It revolves around two central characters: the genie, Shiphrah, and her new master, Alan Parker. Included in the tale are Alan’s friends and associates who each fulfill a set of classic anime tropes, however with twists. (usually) It’s an “ecchi” (Japanese word for ‘perverted’) romantic comedy with lots of nudity, bad language, adult themes, comedic/slapstick violence and sexual innuendo, but no hardcore sex (except as donation bonuses). Basically, the kind of stuff you’d find in the 17+ area of the anime aisle at the video store or in your average R-Rated movie. So get ready for some serious cheese, folks.
