Editorial Reviews

Based on the brutal world created by the masters at Capcom.

Sengoku Basara drops you directly into the burning battlefields of feudal Japan, where rival warlords hack and slash their way to total domination. Each conqueror wields a special attack that boosts their powers of devastation, and each commands a horde of relentless warriors. But when a supreme evil – the Demon Lord – threatens the land, these fierce generals launch a co-op campaign of annihilation and build an army of armies to obliterate their common foe. As the front line grows crowded with gun-toting, mechanized samurai and mystical ninja, some will say that war is hell – Sengoku Basara proves it can also be kick ass.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word sums up this series: AWESOME. October 27, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Based on the world of the Sengoku Basara videogames which are [loosely] based on the infamous Sengoku Period in Japanese history, Sengoku Basara is a mish-mash of explosive action, slapstick comedy, and romance caught in a whirlwind war for supremacy. In the words of a reviewer on ANN, it's "JAPANESE HISTORY MAXIMUM". And I loved every second of it.

Story:
While the Japanese audience are very familiar with the Sengoku period and its many players, us foreigners might have a bit of a rough time recognizing the famous samurai and battles that pepper the Sengoku Basara universe. With a large cast, SB works quickly to familiarize viewers with the varied generals and their respective heavily-named territories, focusing especially on Masamune Date, the Big Boss of Oshu [an utter badass] and Lord Shingen and his (servant? protege?) Yukimura Sanada of the Takeda Clan. Main villain Oda Nobunaga (he has one HELL of a theme song) explodes onto the scene in episode 2 leaving a wake of blood, fire and lightning in his path and forcing the generals of Japan into a somewhat uneasy alliance to try and take him down. I don't want to give away too much, but essentially the series revolves around the east, west, and Nobunaga fighting eachother. While this seems like moody and heavy stuff, SB manages to balance its relatively dark material with hilarious character interaction (I never get tired of Shingen punching the hell out of Yukimura), stirring drama and a refreshingly modern sensibility. Fans of the series (or of the sengoku period) will be able to follow the series kinetic pace easily as it reflects the games' pace, however new-comers to the series may be lost in a swirling vortex: utterly confused but dazzled at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you ready ghuys?!!!! March 1, 2012
By NC
Format:Blu-ray
Yes, that is ghuys, not guys. The words of Date Masamune in this series always sound better when you add his little accent.

If there is any series done which reeks of more testosterone fueled action than Basara, I haven't seen it yet. This series takes the warring states period and injects it with a dose of about 1000 energy drinks. Is it meant to be accurate? No. Is it meant to obey the laws of physics? No. Is it meant to be an action packed show where bitter enemies band together to face a common foe? Yes.

That is mostly what both seasons sum up to be. It is not an over the top emotional drama story or a feel good story where enemies come to love each other. It is an action series showing the strength found when rivals put aside differences and join forces. The two most prominent heroes are the ones gracing the box cover: Sanada Yukimura and Date Masamune. The epic rivalry between these two knows no end. Their battles always engulf entire battlefields and regular soldiers are but ants before them.

Sounds wild, off the wall, and a bit over the top right? Well, that is mostly what this series is about. However, there is some story mixed into this parade of sword slinging action. Most centers around Yukimura and Masamune. But as you get to meet more Sengoku generals, you will find some rather fun characters in the mix. This is after all, a very big series in Japan. We only get the ripples from this in the form of the anime and video games.

But that doesn't mean this show isn't without it's issues. Yes that is a 4 star rating up there, but I would rank it more a 4-4.5. Why not a solid 5? Because the two seasons are really not all that different. Events are different but the same general structure is there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Japanese History Just got a Lot More Awesome! January 11, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Based on a video game series that itself turned Japanese history into a comic book, this is the coolest anime show I've seen in quite some time. You see, the "Sengoku" of the title refers to the "Sengoku" or "Warring States" period of Japanese history, which lasted over 100 years and saw constant battle as numerous factions fought for territory and control. Several of the characters are even based on actual people...but here they are given flashy, colorful outfits that make them look like medieval superheroes/villains, weild badass kung-fu weapons, have nicknames like "One-Eyed Dragon", "Tiger of Kai" and "The Devil King", spout dialogue that sounds like Shakespeare on testosterone(it's cooler than it sounds), and use DBZ-style super powered martial-arts moves that defy the laws of physics. One character even has a motorcycle handle bars and exhaust pipes on his horse! If you think that sounds over the top...well, that's the whole idea.

I'll admit that some of the characters are fairly shallow (a couple don't even have any personality at all), but given the source material (the SB games have more action than plot) and that the series is so short & so crowded, it does good with what it's got. And its good points more than make up for its flaws. It has beautiful animation, high octane action scenes, good character moments between the mayhem, and even provides equal opportunity fan service (not only are there men with handsome/pretty faces and great bodies, it throws in a few hot babes, chiefly a well endowed ninja chick with a costume that also defies the laws of physics)! And really, you cant ask for much more than that in a good anime show.
