Synopsis

Long ago, there lived an evil being who reigned over the world through fear, called Satan Rchimedes. He invaded the human world with his many demon underlings, spreading madness and chaos everywhere. One thousand years ago, this menace was sealed by the hero Creation, and peace returned to the world.

Then, one day, a great hole suddenly appeared on the surface of the world, and a vast number of demons appeared. The king discerned that the menace Satan had returned after being sealed away for a thousand years, and decided to send the hero's descendants to battle him. He found 75 men. As one thousand years had passed, you see, it was difficult to tell who the hero's descendants were.

So the king declared that he would grant the title of "true hero" and great fortune to the one who defeated Satan, and ordered the new hero, Alba, and his warrior attendant, Ross, on a quest to bring down the evil Satan.

Though he struggles with lesser monsters and is even nearly killed by his partner Ross, Alba's quest to polish his fighting skills leads him to new places and new meetings that he had never expected. Battles, laughter, and emotional moments enhance this adventure tale of an incompetent hero and a sadistic warrior!

Anime is a dying medium.

We spit on the carcasses of animators and seiyuus from past battles. No anime has particularly captured the spirit of the good times (the 80s and 90s). Look at ourselves squabbling what is the best anime this season; we are not united. There's even some of us who say none of the anime this season is actually good. Inside our corrupted minds, the inner voice is telling us, "No, this anime will never be good as Anime X." It is how human nature works: we are negative, brutish, cynical beings.

But one adventurous director has decided to fight against the odds read more

Shorts are quite rare in Anime, and as like majority of the shorts Senyuu is a gag or comedy short in its core. But what is unique about this show is that it is based on a fantasy settings which is even more rare in shorts. Unlike many other shorts Senyuu has one other criteria that is although it tries to parody the fantasy world setting in overall it also tries to have a continuity (rather then being self contained episodes) and tries to tell a short yet somewhat coherent (somewhat comes to mind mostly due to ridiculously comic sequences) story. And that is what read more

Senyuu is a general hilarious story of the adventures of Alba and Ros to defeat the demon king. The story follows a particular video game style much like old Final Fantasy (Utilizing a control pad to attack or defend). The story involves quit a lot of slapstick humor, as well as many references to characters being perverted ("Tentacles are sexy").

The art work is very well drawn, although simple. The artwork also tends to change from time to time, with great detail.

The sound quality is great. The actors do a wonderful job depicting each character.
The characters are good, but have no real change in their read more

'not helpful' and 'not agree' are different things. I have put much work into it to make it 'helpful'. If you find it is actually 'not helpful', please send me a comment suggesting why, so I can improve future reviews. I think the community is better served by having diverse opinions promoted on content, rather than popularity through agreement. Thank you.

Quick & dirty:
It's 4.5 mins long, & 1/3 is the outro. I laughed every episode, so far- so that counts for something. Try it- it's too short not to.
