Well, at first sorry about my English and if there are any mistakes.

Brave 10 is a ninja shounen anime about Sanada Yukimura and his ten heroes.
I started to watch it becouse I like shounen, but I had not any big expectatives about it.
When I watch the firsts episodies, I thought:
-This is a fucking bishounen anime, man.
-The story is pretty bad...
-Why Isanami is so stupid?
Etc. But I didn't drop it. Why? Well, I say to you: this anime is bad. But it's not boring. There are some bad animes that when you are watching and episode you are praying for the end. Not in Brave 10. read more

I am commenting this as a person who expected a Sengoku Basara/Historical Seinen anime out of this and not a romance-themed one. Just so you know. This is also why I decided to write a review, since I don't do that much... I just thought people should have my two cents on this as someone who is not interested in the anime at all, but will see it in its entirety.

Pathetic. That was the word I was looking for my review's main theme. I am very thankful to MAL for putting it as the 1's title. If you're looking for a seinen, historical, samurai/ninja read more

Obviously I loved the feudal Japan background. The fights are not stretched forever, usually 1 or 2 episodes max. These are necessary to advance the story. The plot is fairly predictable and shallow: faction conspiracies, good vs evil, resolving matters by fighting your way through, brotherhood, etc.

The first episode is actually one of my favorite and I do believe the story should have followed a bit more its spirit. For instance, Saizou's skills and unwillingful attitude were worthwhile and promising but the feeling fades away as the story goes on and he gradually becomes next to useless. Basically, he's super strong against his read more

So if u are looking for a anime with KICK ASS NINJA FIGHTS, then this is probably for you.
Here Isanami, the only person to escape Izumo, is given instructions to seek shelter from Sanada Yukimura at Ueda. As she flees Isanami is saved from Ieyasu’s thugs by an unemployed Iga ninja named Saizou,the main protagonist.
Saizo begins as a gruff loner, but when he spends time with Isanami, he develops a desire to protect her.The arguments Between Saizo and Isanami is quite funny end enoyable to watch

Later in the first episode itself, Isanami is found to have strange powers capable of destroying things around her..A power read more

Anime: Sengoku Basara
Hotblooded crazy samurai and ninja being all hotblooded and crazy in humorous over the top fashion. You expected something serious and vaguely realistically historical? Not here, baby.

(Sengoku Basara does hold the distinction of actually being enjoyable however)

Anime: Hakuouki
Both of these Anime contain a female lead who is sought out by both the bad guys and good guys. They both have very mild personalities and both anime have bishonen.

It takes place in the same era and also have fighters using ninpou.
