Created by Magic Bus, a Studio which only has a few lesser-known titles under its belt, ‘XL Joushi’ is an Ecchi anime that is unlike most other shows out there. Though it does qualify as borderline hentai, it actually follows a pretty decent storyline. Most shoujo anime shows feature typical high school love stories but ‘XL Joushi’ takes a slightly different approach towards the romance genre and presents a story that is more suitable for a mature audience. Certainly not one of the best shows of this season but you can still check it out if you’re looking for something that’s light-hearted.
XL Joushi Season 1 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Since the inception of anime, shounen has always been the forefront of all genres. But Josei, which is targeted towards adult women, still remains unexplored. ‘XL Joushi’ is one of those few anime shows that are exclusively targeted towards women, typically 18-30 years old. Its season 1 premiered on October 7, 2019 and with a total of 8 episodes, it is expected to end by November 2019.
Looking at the current ratings and the response it has received so far, it does not seem like it will ever return with season 2. Also, it looks like one of those shows that are solely created for advertising their source materials. Even then, if it ever gets renewed for a new season, we will update it here on the website. Till then, you can check out our list of other similar Ecchi anime.

XL Joushi Characters:
Keisuke Sudo is a stern young man who is often referred to as the “demon boss” by most of his employees. He is ruthless boss and makes sure that everyone working under him is giving everything they’ve got. In the office, he never wastes any time and makes sure that the people around him are working as hard as him. Later one night, he runs into Saki and finds her with a bag full of condoms. But to Saki’s surprise, instead of judging her, he keeps an open mind and even understands her situation.
In appearance, he is an ideal man with angular features and dark blue hair. He is also quite tall and has a muscular build. After he falls in love with Saki, he also proves to be a really nice boyfriend and unlike his cold demeanor at the office, he turns out to be a very warm and friendly person. When he starts helping Saki with her part-time job, he takes his role very seriously and makes sure that Saki gets all the help that she needs.
Saki Watase is a 26-year-old woman who is extremely poor and cannot even afford soybean sprouts. She works really hard to make ends meet but still struggles to have enough money to survive. Out of sheer desperation, she picks up a part-time job where she has to review XL condoms. Initially, she gets really depressed and instead of finding a solution for her problems, she decides to get drunk. But when she finally meets Sudo outside the office and he offers her some help, her life begins to change.
Saki is a little slow compared to others at her workplace and is also quite clumsy and absent-minded. But what makes her a great employee is her commitment and honesty towards her work. In appearance, she has a cute face with soft feminine features and she is not all that tall. She has light brown hair and big brown eyes. When she blushes, her cheeks usually turn red.
Riku Narita is another male character of the series who is the same age as Saki. He meets Saki for the first time at an XL discussion table. He is a typical playboy and never holds himself back from hitting on the women he likes.
