Seikon no Qwaser fails as an educational tool

I know – what anime DOES serve a purpose as an educational tool?  Anyways, if you don’t want to red an entry that sounds educational, stop reading.  I’m just kidding – you better read this post.  I stopped blogging this series due to the adult-like content but I continued to watch it.  Needless to say, I’ve found several big FAILS that would certainly hurt the image of this series… not that it was great at all.

1. Copper CANNOT ‘oxidize’ aka rust.

Copper is one of the few metals that can’t rust, so it surprises me the the ‘Copper Puppeteer’ loses to the Oxygen lord when he rusts the long extensions of her copper doll.  Of every metal  that could rust, you had to pick one that didn’t to lose to a guy who’s only specialty was GUST(super-effective!) and RUST CANNON (pokemon references galore).  Seikon no Qwaser, even a high school student who only takes IB SL chemistry knows that… hell, my little ten-year-old brother knows that.


2. A flat-chested teenager cannot produce over a gallon of breast milk.

The reason why some boobs are so big is because they’re scientifically able to produce more milk… so what’s the deal when in episode 11 and 12 that the class rep is able to give her soma to both crazy Mercury-lady and Sasha, who seem to drink at least two minutes-worth of breast-milk.

“The basic components of a mature mammary gland are the alveoli (hollow cavities, a few millimetres large) lined with milk-secreting cuboidal cells and surrounded bymyoepithelial cells. These alveoli join up to form groups known as lobules, and each lobule has a lactiferous duct that drains into openings in the nipple. The myoepithelial cells can contract under the stimulation of oxytocin thereby excreting milk secreted from alveolar units into the lobule lumen toward the nipple, where it collects in sinuses of the ducts. As the infant begins to suck, the hormonally (oxytocin) mediated “let down reflex” ensues and the mother’s milk is secreted – not sucked from the gland – into the baby’s mouth.

All the milk-secreting tissue leading to a single lactiferous duct is called a “simple mammary gland”; a “complex mammary gland” is all the simple mammary glands serving one nipple. Humans normally have two complex mammary glands, one in each breast, and each complex mammary gland consists of 10–20 simple glands. The presence of more than two nipples is known as polythelia and the presence of more than two complex mammary glands as polymastia.”

Which basically says, bigger breasts = usually, more milk.


3. You can’t have THAT much iron in your blood.

Screw me – he’s the qwaser of iron, but he bleeds.  And you can’t enough iron in your blood to make a new super-weapon.  About 70% of the body’s iron is bound to hemoglobin in red blood cells. The rest is bound to other proteins (transferrin in blood or ferritin in bone marrow) or stored in other body tissues. When red blood cells die, their iron is released and carried by transferrin to the bone marrow and to other organs such as the liver and spleen. In the bone marrow, iron is stored and used as needed to make new red blood cells.  Which makes up… what?  And Sasha is tiny, let’s not forget that.

4. Mercury is poisonous.

Mercury as a liquid is poisonous.  Any near contact of even 1 gram can kill a human – and the whole class was exposed to at least a dozen gallons of a human gushing mercury as blood.  Nobody dies, or even poisoned.  Great success.


“Ehhhhhhhh~ honto?”

5.  Iron can make a super-metal?

That whole thing where he found a super-precious metal is a load of crap.  That isn’t possible and plus, the copper-woman should’ve been able to kill the Oxygen lord but noooooooooo, her copper ‘rusts’.  Good one.

I needed the picture twice to prove how idiotic it is.

It may be obvious that I have no other posts to write, and it should be obvious that many anime series don’t follow the standard laws of reality, but Seikon no Qwaser seemed so desperately hard to try to fit chemistry facts that I needed to write this post, boring as it was.  Your call XD

    Even if copper rusts, the amount of wind it would take to rust it would take forever to generate. The series was a fan pleaser, so I didn’t really expect it to make much sense to begin with.

    well said! I don’t know whether to drop this anime or continue watching, since theres 6 new animes ill be watching 😀 and all I can say is the new anime is a lot better than this… anyways lol I don’t think this anime has to make sense or be educational at this point since the material that comes from them are “special” I guess thats why none of the Scientific things aren’t happening like killing the people with exposure to mercury lol but thats just meee anyways again nicely said!

    I’ve finally realized the nastiness of this anime but it took me a few eps. I was tricked by the animation which seemed of good quality, but as the weird events kept rolling I couldnt’t tolerate the story anymore.

    How bout generally women don’t lactate unless they are pregnant. Or the fact that having high levels of the hormone that causes you to lactate, prolactin, without being pregnant can sometimes be indicative of a tumor on the pituitary gland.

    So big breasts or little breasts don’t matter when you ain’t pregnant.

    Yeah, i agreee this anime has alot of un-scientific facts about how the mercury doesn’t affect anyone when exposed to it, but you just have to remember, it’s still only an anime, it’s not real life. (even though it would be cool if it was real) So even though it has some downsides, it’s got a really good storyline & gives alot of entertainment in-between the times where i come onto the comp to just mock other animes.. NOT! Seikon no Qwaser ftw!!

    Copper does oxidise, note how copper roofs turn green. That’s copper oxidising. Anyway, it’s an ANIME ffs, I doubt it was ever intended to be educational and most are not even close to being realistic! Do you write blogs about Naruto and Bleach not being “educational tools” or realistic?
    Anyway, this blog is a waste of space.

    Yes, copper does oxidise, but the power and force that was portrayed to oxidise it in seconds with just oxygen would be impossible in real life, so i agree with you, it is just an ANIME ffs, & yh, i doubt that they put it up there intensionally for “educational” purposes, & if someone disagrees with that then why would they put in the sucking of breasts to gain power?

    Why do people hate this anime so much? IT’S NOT THAT BAD!

    Who the fuck cares, it just an anime… Science or practically in laws don’t apply in a hell of lot of shows. You just like or you don’t… You obviously didn’t like it to an extreme but did you realy have to right a blog just too state that?
