Editorial Reviews

When these girls fight - clothes won't last!

Everyone wants a piece of the new girl in town, but nothing turns Kakufu on more than a brutal street fight. She shrugs off her shredded skirts and tattered tops with a flurry of busty badassery while fighting to unite seven rival schools. And with no shortage of enemies, why take on one guy when she can take on ten? In this adventure where teenage brawlers are guided by jewels infused with the spirits of ancient warriors, Kakufu is content to flash her panties and crack some skulls. But like any hero, she cannot escape her destiny – no matter how dark it may be.

Ikki Tousen: 8 out of 10: The term fan service is thrown around a lot when people discuss Anime. Ikki Tousen is the greatest (or worst) example of blatant fan service I have seen outside of a pornographic Hentai.

One could easily watch the first few episodes and could think that blatant and somewhat creepy fan service is all Ikki Tousen offers, but something funny happened I got drawn into the story.

In an alternate universe High Schools exist for fighting tournaments. The students wear teardrops shaped earrings that contain the essence of warriors from the Three Kingdoms period in China (also known as called the Six Dynasties) that followed the loss of de facto power by the Han Dynasty emperors. Each character in Ikki Tousen is predestined to the fate of their respective warrior.

So a history lesson is mixed in between the shots of leave nothing to the imagination white panties. Does that really excuse a grown man watching topless high school girls beat each other up?... Probably not no.

The animation is rudimentary and the episodes can be a touch repetitive. There is also that guy blushing sex humor I despise. Nevertheless, as soon as I start to fail to warm to the episodes something dramatic happens too break the pattern (The lesbian rape in Episode 6 Roku is a particular game changer.)

So if you enjoy a good Anime and do not currently appear on any sex offender lists I can highly recommend Ikki Tousen. Give it a few episodes you may be drawn into the history and characterization. Alternatively, you might just be a sick in the head... different strokes and all that.

All I have to say is Season 2!

I caught the english dub of Ikki Tousen after learning that Carrie Savage (voice actor that plays Hakafu) says that this was one of her most favorite anime's that she did in her career. If you know Carrie Savage's work than you know she has a very cute child like voice (check out Solty Rei). I like Carrie so I thought that I'd check it out.

I will say that Ikki Tousen off the top isn't the type of anime I go for. This one is pretty much nonstop fan service. Yeah I enjoy some fan service in the likes of (Burst Angel) but this is no holes barred for 12 episodes. It's entertaining to see, but somehow it cheapens the serious plot.

The plot of Ikki Tousen in itself is interesting. There is a group of teenagers that live out their lives as the reincarnations of fallen heroes from a story called "The romance of 3 kingdoms" they all posses the powers of the warriors from these stories, and live out thier lives according to the tales. However, they wish to defeat the fate that their incarnations fell victim to 1800 years ago. They go around fighting eachother only to solve the 1800 year old quarrels of their predecessors.

Each group of fighters has a leader that they follow, and each group is classified by the highschool they represent. Some schools are friend,some schools are foe, but in the end they all share the same destinies as Kingdoms of long ago.

Ikki tousen focuses on the story of a clumsy girl named Hakafu who likes going around fighting random people while wearing a very short skirt. In the series we follow Hakafu as she discovers herself and her new found friends. Through her journey she finds out that she's more special than she thinks she is.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally bought it! July 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Battle Vixens, (the manga version of Ikki Tousen), and I've seen the show online before purchasing this anime. I had to have a copy of the first season, (since this is not the complete series whatsoever), for myself. This is the S.A.V.E. Edition which is fine for me since I don't really care for box arts and extra special features.

- Animation: The animation is pretty good but I have to admit this though, the animation is a hell of a lot better in manga format. It's very bright but also very sharp, and edgy. There are a lot of panty shots in this anime, do not take other reviewers comments on the fan service lightly. Female characters that are fighters have clothes that rip in battle to expose their breasts and also means much more panty shots.

- Story: Basically, schools are in this war because they hold different souls of fighters from a different era and apparently Hakufu's often dumb ass is the most powerful fighter. There's a bit more to this story than just fan-service but a lot critics disagree with me. Parents be warned of this anime not only because of the absurd amount of fan-service, there is a rape scene between two of the female characters, strong language, sexual situations that are almost pornographic, heavy amounts of sexual innuendos, and large amounts of violence against women.

- Dub and script: The dub is pretty decent but the script kinda sucks to me.

All in all, it's a good anime to watch and buy it since it's low-priced if you're over 18 and you like shows like this. It gets a 4 out of 5 on my end since I wish it looked like the manga and the script and opening and closing songs sucks a poopy wet dog's butt.
