Characters & Voice Actors
I don’t understand the hate behind this series. Let’s be fair, it’s an ecchi anime, so we should be watching for fun over substance. And if you don’t look too hard, this is actually a pretty good and fun series :)
Art – 9 points
The character designs are very well done. First, all the girls are very attractive (pretty, hot, sexy, cute, you name it…) each with unique appearances that match their personalities. Then each girl got individual ninja gears that are splendid top to bottom. From this wide selection of girls, the audience should be able to find a girl that suits their taste just by appearance. I personally found several. :) The major setback in the art is the boobs may have been a little too round and the lack of nipples, but that didn’t really bother me. :)
Story – 7 points
The story certainly wasn’t one of the best, but it was good enough to develop a course of action and direction. Basically, the light shinobi girls are students of a ninja academy. They train to get the skills they need while carrying out missions and having their perverted fun. One day, they come in contact with the dark shinobi girls. This begins the series of challenge from the dark side shinobi girls to the light shinobi girls to see who’s stronger. The fights were really good and shows off both side’s rivalry with each other. As the story progresses, there seems to be a bigger evil working in the shadows among the dark shinobi faction.
Ecchi – 8 points
The ecchi was great and perverted in nature. This anime has a lot of boob service and uses the ninja theme well to exploit this. The ecchi was very fun to watch in actuality more so than in the hotness aspect in my opinion. But believe me, some parts do get very hot (……Haruka…..Haruka….) The shinobi girls also have a skill where their gear transforms into swimsuits and you get to see them fight in swimsuits, I thought that was pretty nice. The main complaint you’re gonna get in the ecchi department is probably the lack of guys for perverted stuff. But the spotlight is in the beauty of the girls so it’s alright. :) Besides you got that ninja teacher Kiriya- sensei who I think is pretty funny and that perverted old gramps. They create the right mood for this anime to go well. :)
Character – 8 points
I think the character department deserves a good score. The word unique would sum it up. This anime managed to create so many girls with unique personalities that things never get dull or repetitive. I was really impressed by how easy it was to distinguish a large cast of girls due to their unique personality. Each girl got their background story that enhances their personality and this combination of personalities in character interaction fleshes out memorable characters (like Yagyuu and Hibari duo). I really liked all the characters, the girls are awesome!
Sound – 10 points
The opening kicks ass and is epic!!! The endings, both ending 1 and 2 are so good!!! Can’t you guys recognize that? The Ninja BGM was very good too!
Enjoyment – 9 points
I’ve really enjoyed this anime that I’ve gone to write a review for it. It’s by no means a mind blowing anime, but this is a really great ecchi anime. It deserves a solid 9!
Thank you so much everyone :)
This is a serious review for a serious matter.
Senran Kagura shows a five girl ninja school against another school (this one evil). You will learn a lot about ninjas.
Ninjas can defy physics: when they are hanging down, their breasts hang, but their skirts don't. Strange, as they like to show her underwear whenever possible. Also, when hanging with a water bucket on each hand they can still somehow shake hands with a companion. Uh?
Real ninjas resemble magical girls, and some armor transformations have even less cloth that the usual school uniform. I cannot stop staring at Katsuragi's... armor.
Even with magical girl transformations, there is no panty shots here, there is simply some scenes where panties are strangely not shown. Given the setting, this scenes can be dificult to understand, you will need to try your best.
Music is pretty good, being interesting and powerful. Helps a lot to cover the shallow story.
Characters are walking cliches with enormous breasts (the pervert, the shy, the cool genious, the willful protagonist, the straight: you will know who is who and you have probably already seem then anywhere else). Something to point out: student bodies don't differ greaty, they all have this cowish milky breasts which bounce at the minor oportunity (even when they talk). Could have been interesting to have more than one body type (there's only a loli on the bad girls team).
There are two Kuroneko ripoff, coming in two different sizes. Most animes have only one.
On one before-spot image one of the bad girls is leaking one of her breasts! D.D
Even with so incredibly stupid premises, this happens to be fun.
As you are always watching at some kind of underwear, they soon start to seem as battle bikinis.
The story is shallow.
The ending is a bit stupid. read more
