Calling the characterization 'cardboard' would be great praise. The art is terrible, the dialogue is worse--either sub or dub--and the plot is contrived. Even the trailers for other animes are terrible. There is a continutity gap between disc one and disc two that is never closed, which pretty much nukes any pretense this thing had to a plot.
If you like pointless explosions and meaningless fight scenes, that may raise this DVD set above glorified coaster status for you. Otherwise, skip this one. It's much too much money to spend on something of this poor quality.
The story goes that 400 years ago a War Lord called the Demon King came to power and 10 Tokyo Warriors had to rise up and defeat him and now every 400 years the Demon King revives to try and take over the world and the 10 warriors are reincarnated to fight him once again.
First the good points, well the animation is not bad. no it's not tier 1 animation but it is serviceable and at least does not make your eyes want to bleed out. The First 3 episodes on disc 1 set up the story pretty well and shows most of the 10 warriors, some of the fights scenes are pretty good or at least I thought the Commander of the group mirror attacks were pretty clever, each warrior has control of a certain force, fire, wind, light, shadow etc etc.
Now for the bad.
If you do buy this anime for the love of all that is descent watch it subtitled the dubbing is horrible and it's not the voices themselves that makes it bad just the delivery of the lines are so bland and mono toned that it becomes painful to listen to. I mean I have to go back to the 80's to hear this bad a dub, I enjoyed my second watch on subtitled so much more.
Now as I said above the first disc sets up the story pretty well, have not a clue as to what happened on the second disc, you find out that Mika died whoever the hell that is, and that the 10 Tokyo Warriors previously just had a big battle in which one of the new characters who turned out to be a Warrior betrayed them, but it's ok because he never made an appearance in disc one.Read more ›

Disjointed. Unimaginative. Poorly written. Very poor voice acting and dubbing. Although it wasn't the dubbing so much as the scripting. Read morePublished on June 30, 2007 by Po Boy
This is a two disk set with six episodes. The storyline really doesn't get off the ground and I can't say I overly enjoyed watching these OVA's. Most of the anime was well done. Read morePublished on March 20, 2006 by Fay_way
