If you've read the reviews for vol. 1, you should already know the basic story--ancient warriors from the great Chinese novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" have been reincarnated into high school students from seven rival high schools across Japan's Kanto region. These students are known as "Fighters" and the seven schools are battling each other for supremacy. Well, in this volume the Big Fighters Tournament begins, which is the ultimate event that will decide the top school in the region. Obviously, this paves the way for a number of fights to ensue. Our heroine, "Booby Bombs" Hakufu is teamed up with her cousin/bodyguard Koukin, Gakusho, and Ryomou to fight for her school in the tournament. I gotta say, Ryomou was awesome in this volume--she has to be my favorite character so far. She has the coolest fighting style, and I love her strong, noble personality. She's kinda like a cross between Rei Ayanami from Eva and Piccolo from DBZ.
A cool new character also makes her appearance in this volume--Kanu, a very strong, beautiful fighter with long dark hair that goes down to her feet. In fact she's so strong that her school let her represent them in the tournament all by herself! However, she does not desire to win the tournament--only to have a good fight with a worthy opponent. In the last episode of this volume, both Ryomou and Hakufu end up fighting with her, and they were definitely the best fights in the show so far.Read more ›
This anime is a lot of fun. It has great action, comedy, and some really great characters. It's more focused on chicks fighting and getting it on than the actual story. The plot is a bit thin and kinda out there, but interesting. You can easily get into the characters, and want them to be okay in the end. I guess that is what makes an anime good. Ikki Tousen is a very entertaining anime to watch, but as I said it's main purpose is fan service.
