Overall I give this story right now a 7/10 because the first part is not finished but I can see that it might turn out to be something good. It does have romance, action, ecchi, and comedy rolled all into it and not afraid to show violence so that's good. I do want it to open up and start talking more about the Brave 10 but I guess the first season is the gathering of the 10 then comes next the true villain.
The art is not to bad so I give it a 8/10 I like Isanami so that might be why I give it a higher score but there's nothing I can say that was horrible about the characters that were drawn. The only thing I saw but liked was how big Isanami eyes were and the opening theme makes the ice ninja look kind of rough and ugly. In the series she doesn't look bad and it's funny how Sanada is trying to get in bed with her but I don't know why she don't like him. She might try and play that tsundere type for him; I bet he will like that the way he's been acting. Then again maybe she still has feelings for the Saizo.
I give the characters a 9/10 because all of them seemed pretty interesting and I would like to see how the author builds up the characters. Also Saizo is pretty cool not super arrogant and not super bitchy. I come to notice when the dude likes the girl to much it messes up the story and when he shows to less interest it makes the story boring this is just right but I want to see their relationship grow into something. I wouldn't be surprised if the red head turned out to be a female and the ice ninja starts flirting harder with Saizo that will make it into a basic anime for you.
The sound I give a 8/10 because the voices where good but the opening and closing hasn't caught my ear yet so I can't say it got to me but also can't say it's horrible. Overall the enjoyment of the show I give a 9/10. I can't give it a perfect score because it can still turn out to be a horrible anime if the plot isn't good but from the way it's stating it might turn out to be a great anime. I have added this series to my common shows that I watch so I'm hoping that it doesn't disappoint me.
So if you're into action, romance, comedy, violence, and ecchi I think you will like this. I guess you will be considered a lame by that person but who cares I like good shows and whatever is good in my eyes is something I'm going to watch. Oh yea and the only similarities I see in Naruto is that they are ninja and they use stuff that reminds me of jutsu in Naruto.

Brave 10 is a somewhat comedial interpretation of the historical Sanada Ten Braves folklore. It’s not a bad anime but it’s definitely not exceptional or great for that matter. While Brave 10 might never be considered a classic, it will still manage to entertain and please the anime viewer.
Story: There’s not really much to say about the story because the story of Brave 10 is weak and follows more or less in the same footsteps of many other similar anime, rarely displaying any form of originality. It follows the typical cliché character archetypes one would expect from a shounen anime and never attempts to keep viewers inclined to watch. The story has acceptable progression and can easily be understood and followed but offers nothing different or anything astonishing.
Animation: This is one of the rather better aspects of Brave 10. The colors are vibrant and do an excellent job of bringing life to the anime. The colors are soft, light on the eyes and never has too much detail. The art direction is also somewhat acceptable. Characters are well designed and fit excellently to the humorous tone of the anime. The areas are also pleasing to look at. The action set pieces can seem a bit bland at times but the sequencing itself is excellent and easy to follow.
Sound: The soundtrack fits the anime well but never tries to elevate it, making it quite forgettable. Seriously, you’ll probably never remember Brave 10’s soundtrack. The voices are done well but then again that’s something we’ve come to expect from an anime.
Character: This is Brave 10’s biggest problem. There are too many characters that feel as if they weren’t fleshed out enough and some feel as if they were given more development than others. The characters that were given more development are surprisingly developed quite well. The problem is that a 12 episode anime is nowhere long enough to allow acceptable development for so many characters.
Enjoyment: Regardless of its flaws, Brave 10 will probably be enjoyed by many viewers. I found it at times enjoyable but it never possessed that “wow” factor. It’s best to watch this anime with zero expectations to prevent a feeling of disappointment
Encode: Excellent encode. Rarely saw any pixelation.
To Sum Up
Ups: Nice vibrant colors that fit the anime’s tone, interesting fighting sequences, acceptable
story progression, easy anime to follow, character development is good when it’s there.
Downs: Cliché story, bland set pieces, forgettable soundtrack, character development leaves much to be desired
Final Words: Brave 10 isn’t a bad anime but it will never be considered great either. Mixing so many different things into a shounen anime was a good idea but the execution of that idea was its failure. read more

honestly, i'm not a fan of shounen or seinen genres, but after watching this, i came to like it a bit more. the story was blurry and confusing, but the animation makes up for it.
from the summary, it looks like, more of a shoujo-ish "protect me" cliche.
well, i can't really say it isn't, but.. i could say that i really enjoyed it, maybe since i'm a girl, and i can't get enough of this.. "protect me" theme.
the art is a total two thumbs up. i just can't take my eyes off the screen, especially when they're fighting. the body movements and actions are detailed and accurate, and it kept my adrenaline rush running. there is violence, but it isn't too brutal. just right.
i could say that those scenes are one of its beautiful features.
the OP is nice. the animation for it is composed beautifully, but the song was a bit off. the tune is really adventure-y, but the voice was a bit.. out of place.
the sounds and OSTs are catchy, and it fits perfectly with what's going on. there are a lot of times when the music makes me jump from my seat. haha.
i'm such a simpleton, i know.
the characters, well.. some of them are interesting, while some are simply.. ordinary. saizo is really my type of hero, but, isanami.. well.. i guess sometimes she's quite too clingy. but they look so perfect together. haha.
the other members of the brave warriors are nice, too.they have different interesting (but a bit common) traits and personalities.
being a hopeless romantic, i was looking for a love triangle between the main protagonists and sasuke, but i never got it in the end. lols.
the bond between the brave warriors and sanada is really clear and visible. there is real interaction involved, so it's fun watching them. (they didn't just got together suddenly.) it felt like i'm growing with them. haha. so warm~
there is also humor inserted in the series, but it's quite seldom, since it mainly focus on the seinen action genre. i have to be honest, but i really did laugh at certain parts in the middle of the series, and i can't seem to stop laughing. sheesh, i laugh easily, i know.
drama was also present, too, but rarely. and it only sprouted at the end of the series.
lastly, the ending.
actually, i didn't quite like how it ended (though i like how saizo saved isanami ~ the words he threw at isanami is really.. romantic *kyaa).
the ending was too rushed, and it will leave us with our questions unanswered. i still have a lot to ask in mind, like, "who is this white haired enemy of sanada, really?" , " is isanami cured from her curse?" and a lot more. but .. we've been left with masamune saying weird things that i can't remember, so it's obvious that there will be a season 2 for this, considering that there is also a season 2 in the manga.
beautiful and detailed action, catchy OSTs, plain but weird set of bishounen heroes, plus supernatural mixed with a pint of humor and drama, and a hint of friendship and romance. all in all, you'll get brave 10, a satisfying treat if you're the type who appreciates anime with it's genre, or someone who's into action and development more than the story. ~ read more

There's something here for everyone: epic sword fights, strategic battle techniques, well- developed chararacters, humour and a few mysteries to bind it all together. The voice actors all fit their characters perfectly (some may recognize Daisuke Ono, the voice of Saizou, as Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji), and the characters themselves are creative and often have more than one side to their personalities.
I've watched and read a lot of shounen anime, but this one definitely shines and stands out from the rest. I highly recommend it.

I don't wanna use the term "alpha" because it's an insult created by the "beta" audience of late nite animu. I don't wanna use the terms "manly" or "masculine." I mean... If a guy REALLY wanted to prove his masculinity without acting like a douche bag, he'd avoid speaking ill of eating sushi and driving a Toyota Prius.
We should call it what it SHOULD be called: Guys using their talents and doing what needs to be done and what's important for one's self and others. Once again, I'm wasting all this typing space and flinging around my opinions. But I atleast stand by them. (I also stand by the need for more adult anime to be created and released uncensored and dubbed in the West, but hey.)
* Soapbox Mode Off *
Brave 10 is pretty awesome for a "protect the princess" / "sam-nin" (samurai and ninja) combo. I wish Saizo would bonk Isanami on the head more; just so the anime can prove to the world that "blithering spinelessness" can also be found in the female leads of "reverse harem animu." But hey. read more

dsufakrgfjhsrv I'm literally choking i'm laughing so hysterically, this show is just so random it's amusing. I mean at first I didn't even want to watch this show because in my mind it showed too many similarities to naruto and since I'm weird and all i really care is naruto, all that went through my head was "NOOOO!" it was my friend lena who convinced to finally give it a go and first I was down but obviously as the episodes progressed I just wanted to jump off a cliff. hsdfbhjkgf like that one scene where sanada or someone is explaining the distribution of powers (isanami's hair pin is an example) was split amongst the reigning countries for equal power.. like come on, seriously, oh my god, NARUTO MUCH? I don't know man I guess I am just so over with this show that I don't even care, I don't see it going anywhere so I won't be surprised to see the outcome as so. but yeah, basically this show has become rubbish and I can't stop laughing, so that's that. read more

Second: I'm only going to give my impression. I'm not going to write a summary or anything. I add an overall sentence at the end to summarize how I felt.
Story - 3 (Poor):
It was... pretty bad actually. I feel as if there were 10 episodes of gathering the Braves and then 2 episodes on the actual plot. I did not even like the main idea of the anime. Normally I at least find the base idea interesting if I watch it but not with this anime. I found it silly. I would have enjoyed it more if the show had been about gathering the Braves then a war. Overall: the story was terrible because it was all crammed into only a few episodes.
Art - 8 (Very good):
Bishies! This anime is fill with bishounens (not that I'm complaining because I like attractive characters). I liked the art style and the animation as far as I noticed was well done. The colours of the characters' eyes were what struck me the most. Overall: the art is nice and the animation is well done.
Sound - 7 (Good):
I loved the opening because it was catchy, I even have it on my phone, and it's sung by Daisuke Ono (whose voice I adore). I did not listen to the ending theme enough to remember and I don't feel like going to find it again so no opinion. Now onto the voice acting. Lovely. Simply lovely. I liked all of their voices aside from Isanami's when she whines like a child. I do not remember the background music or sound effects so they were just mediocre. Overall: I enjoyed the opening and seiyuus but the sound wasn't anything too special.
Character - 4 (Decent):
The characters were okay. The main female, Isanami, bothered me because she was so weak even though she had so much potential. I can't ever like females like that and it drives me absolutely insane. The main male, Saizo, also bothered me. He was supposed to be this amazing fighter but he seemed to lose a lot by himself. I did like how he grew somewhat. I did not like how you didn't really get to know the characters either. There were, of course, way too many characters to get to know in 12 episodes. The only character that I liked was Kamanosuke because he made the show funny (and he's insane). I did find the relationships entertaining though. Overall: the characters are kind of boring but watching them interact was fun. (The characters are also all very pretty with good seiyuus so that helped me like them more).
Enjoyment - 6 (Fair):
I did like the anime even though the plot was poor and the characters weren't exciting... strange right? The reason why I enjoyed it was because of the art, seiyuus, and it's pace. Art and sound plays a major role for me and this one does a good job so I watched it until the end. Now the pacing, seems strange that I would like that but it didn't give you a chance to be bored. It moved fast. If it had been longer then I probably would have rated it higher since there could have been more on the plot but I think if they tried to introduce all the characters in 4-5 episodes it would have been too much. But then again I didn't expect a lot from this anime so I wasn't disappointed.
Overall - 6 (Fair):
I would recommend this anime if you're looking for eye candy as the characters are generally really pretty. If you're interested in action (or ninjas) then you'll probably enjoy this. If you're looking for a good plot or deep characters then you might want to find something else because I did not get that from this. I would watch if I was bored and had nothing else to do because it was entertaining.
And that concludes my review. read more

But apparently, i was so wrong.
My biggest problem with this show is the story. It's just a mess. but the surprising thing is i didn't drop it. When i completed it, i wondered,' why the hell did i watch this till the end'.
The art and sound is good. Not so much of a flaw here. the way they depict the panorama is quite good.
The character was mediocre at best. Isanami was my most disliked character in this anime. So annoying. And the characters' development was not done perfectly.
so, overall it's safe to say that i didn't really enjoy it but i didn't give it 1/10 because there are some action moments that is kinda good and as i said i watched it till the end and i didn't drop it. so it deserves a little higher than 1.. 4/10 read more

I wasn't sure what to expect when I began watching this. I enjoyed watching Sengoku Basara, and I had read that this anime had similarities to it (Sengoku period, fighting...). I didn't keep my hopes up too high though, since this is only 12 episodes, and much can't be put into that.
The beginning was boring to me, but the plot became interesting after the fourth episode or so, but not for the right reasons. I liked the plot for the parts when the characters weren't doing anything important main plot -wise. That's odd because I don't even like fillers. I think it might be because that was the only time when we could get time to get to know the characters a bit better. Personally, I think twelve episodes was way too short a time to introduce so many characters.
Even though I liked Sengoku Basara, there's one visual thing I don't quite like about the recent sengoku period animes: the costumes. I don't think a rock star attire sits well with an ancient Japan environment, and it does even less so with this anime. The outfits are too flamboyant and they seem to be there to make up for the lack of depth to the characters. I did enjoy the backgrounds though, they were very atmospheric and beautiful.
The sound wasn't that special. It did its job, but it could have been better. There were some sound effects that were a bit off to me (the sound of Date closing his fan sounded like a whip, for one), and some music that I felt was repeated too often. I didn't like the opening, it felt as if it didn't fit with the animation.
This should probably mean the character of the anime, but I'll talk about characters instead. The main character was quite generic, but he did develop somewhat, so I don't think he was that bad. At some point I think he did develop too fast though, I almost didn't recognize him (onsen-scene). The main female character was pathetic, because she was always whining, always tripping over something, and stopping others from fighting (come on, they're warriors! They're supposed to fight!), and she's a terrible Mary Sue. She wasn't fully annoying though, she did have some adorable and sweet moments, but she didn't develop at all throughout the episodes. The other characters were sadly left behind, only some of them getting some backstory. I think it's because of the length of the series.
Despite being boring in the beginning and pretty predictable, I did enjoy watching this. I liked the "filler" episdoes the most, which is kinda sad, though.
Overall: 4 read more

Story: it was ok, could've been a lot better, but it was only 12 episodes, but I've definitely seen better anime that had more to it with the same amount. but they should've added a romance tag to this as well.
Art: I liked it, I think they did a pretty good job on it, a lot of people are saying that there were 'to many bishies' but you can make an anime amazingly awesome with it having those 'bishies' to, it doesnt matter how 'pretty' the chars look, it counts on what you do with them in the story. Also, blood doesn't spray that much when you get it a cut XD
Sound: I liked the opening and ending themes, I cant really remember if there was any music playing during the fight scenes or any other random moment in the anime though.
Characters: Isanami was cute, but she was the typical girl that always had to be saved and cried a lot when something bad happened. most of the other chars I dont so much as remember, saizo was ok I guess, but I really did enjoy kamanosuke, probably cause I really like those s&m goofy/crazy chars .
Enjoyment: It was ok, it wasn't horrendous, something to pass time with if your bored, Idk if I would rewatch it, but it was decent enough to be able to fnish, and got a few laughs from it.
Overall: Again, I dont think I would rewatch it, but its something to pass the time with if your bored, not the best anime, but it's not the worst. read more

Brave 10 is the action packed show thats all nothing other than that..
The story is not so great, and not even a curious one....
specially at the end, i expected a lot more.
I havent liked the way it ended.. its pretty normal thats it..
Overall, a class anime which can be given a try...! :)
