Well Endowed Sword Fighting Women And Cliche Story Lines
on August 27, 2011
While overall the story of the series has been done over many times at the end the characters do endear themselves to you enough that the series in whole is worth looking at. The basic premise of the series is you have one young man a skilled fighter who inherits a somewhat deteriorated dojo where he begins to meet well endowed women after women(Eight total I figure) all extremely attractive and with the exception of one of them all extremely endowed(Again with a lot of harem animes we have to have one who while technically a young adult appears childlike pushing the Lolita factor a little). Though after one of them Jubei Yagyu appears in the sky and shares a kiss with the young man Munekira Yagyu she becomes a powerful warrior causing all the other females to want to share a kiss with the young man since it seems that by doing so empowers them with incredible fighting prowess. The series is supposed to be a mix of edo and present time since the Tokugawa Shogunate remains in power keeping alive the samurai way of life for the most part, that isn't to say there isn't any technological development you'll see a mix of shogunate lifestyle with modern conveniences intermixed into the series. The series animation is something you have to get used to as I haven't seen this kind anywhere really, the character animation is pretty standard a little mix of Naruto and Ikki Toussen the background animation though feels like one of those 3D games you see like with Street Fighter or BlazeBlue not the exact same thing but a little close to it check out a couple of images or trailers to really get an idea of the series animation. The voice cast for the Japanese did superbly in their character roles and surprisingly so did the English cast, at first I wasn't so sure about them as I checked online for their past credentials and couldn't find anything but if you've already bought a few ADV or Funimation released sets then many of these dubbed voice actors will sound familiar to you. The set comes in three disc, the first two hold the entire series the third is the bonus disc which has some very entertaining extras on it. So if you like series like Sekirei, Naruto, Inu Yasha, or Ikki Touseen with a touch of humor and a ton of fan service here's a entertaining series to check out...
