Is Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time the Next Big Ecchi Series?
By Yung Namahage • 4 weeks ago


I have to admit, while I remember hearing about Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time a few weeks ago, I didn't think much of it. Maybe the name failed to draw me in, sounding more like a Harry Potter self-insert fanfic than an anime. But after the first episode aired a couple days ago I found out that it was essentially a monster girl harem anime, so I got in on that in hopes that it could fill a Monster Musume-shaped hole.


The premise of Peter Grill is that the eponymous hero wins a fighting tournament, and is crowned the world's strongest man. But this earns him a fanclub of horny females of various fantasy races that want his seed for themselves so they can produce equally strong offspring. Poor Pete wants to keep himself for his naive fiancee, but a pair of lusty ogre sisters are determined to have him for themselves. And that's only the first episode!


It's kinda like a reverse Interspecies Reviewers where the protagonist is trying to avoid having sex with mongirls, but that doesn't stop it from having a ton of fanservice. It might be heavily censored for now but an extended "Great Philosopher" version will air on HiDive starting this Friday that shows a little more; just don't expect it to go all the way. The animation is great and the character designs are good for the most part, although I will say that the monster girls are kinda lacking for me, since I prefer my monster girls to be on the more monstrous side instead of just looking like regular humans with horns or different shaped ears, but I'd say it's still worth a watch. The show is still in its early days, and it might even become the next big ecchi hit with its later episodes. Here's a trailer for those unaware:



If you're interested, you can stream Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time on Crunchyroll or HiDive. Have you seen the first episode? What do you think so far? Do you think the series will catch on? Drop your thoughts below!
