The Sengoku era gave birth to many historical legends. One of them is Naoe Kanetsugu, the brilliant military general of the Uesugi family. Together with Maeda Keiji, a legendary warrior on the battlefield, who become lifelong friends with each other, they carve out a piece of history in the most dangerous and volatile time in Japan's history. The two men recall their beginnings and the journey they took to get to the accomplished position they now sit at.

Some might find it difficult to get into this show. The way the story is told to us makes it clear that the two main characters have survived whatever ordeals they faced, and the action itself is not nearly as kinetically satisfying, juicy or frequent as you get in lots of other anime, particularly ones that tend away from the moe side of the scale. Therefore, don't go into this expecting a huge amount of intensity, drama, action or gushing feels. Gifu Dodo is in essence a temperate tale told in smaller stories and adventures that tend to involve strategy, philosophy, courage and loyalty, all read more

If it weren't for two other particularly strong entries, Gifuu Doudou!!: Kanetsugu to Keiji—the double exclamation marks say it all, really—would probably be a strong contender for the most righteous show of the summer 2013 anime season. Gifuu Doudou!!'s premise is simple: Naoe Kanetsugu and Maeda Keiji, two ridiculously large and powerful "legitimate eccentrics," recount their exploits dispensing their brand of "RIGHTEOUSNESS" all over Sengoku-era Japan. It has the right attitude to make this sort of narrative funny and fun, clearly not taking itself very seriously with things like an over the top opening (entirely composed of recycled footage of course) named "SAMURAI ROCK" with read more

Another excellent work from Tetsuo Hara (Hokuto no Ken), this one is historical fiction about two eccentrics and their quest to... well, do awesome and manly things.

This show will put hair on your chest, make your muscles grow and impress women. And if not, you'll still have fun watching it. It's a well-written, stylish show with great art and a strong plot.

It's not a 'perfect masterpiece' but it's a great show nonetheless.

The OP theme was the best OP theme of 2013. If you like HnK you will like this show, as I did, because it is written in a style similar to HnK.

Both are situated in approximately similar time period (warring states) and tackle real historical figures... on the level of characters there are a lot of eccentrics in both of them - passionatelly pursuing some ambition, also, occasional wars, political strategic interactions, communication by gestures, a lot of unspoken which can leave you confused at times and similar. Hyouge Mono has much more content quality to it, Gifuu has a bit more action and is a bit lighter storywise.
