In such a world, there was a single light of hope. The "Holy Weapon Giga Road" and the legendary warrior "Yagyuu" are needed in order to counter the effects of the poison. In order to save the world, Ame, a princess of a fallen nation, stands up in order to save the world.

I honestly had fun watching this series. Yes I agree the series could have been better if it were longer, but it wasn't bad either. If you enjoy some action with a taste of romance, then you might like Neppuu Kairiku Bushi Road.

Story - 7/10
The story itself was intriguing. The poison called "Shinobi" which are attacking the human race is what caught my attention to this series.

For some parts, Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road can be considered a decent series. But at the end of the 90 minutes, I came away with the feeling that it was a work where much potential went to waste.

Let's start with what makes it potentially a great series. Bushi Road is set in a world where humanity, while warring amongst themselves, was threatened by monsters called the shinobi. Princess Ame, read more

Drastic event changes the world as we know it - in this case it's killer plants - and years later the story follows someone who's fate is to undo what evil has been done. Both have action packed moments, moments of touchy-feely love, and monsters (because who doesn't like those).
Mecha, post apocalypse , aliens things and so on. Muv-Luv is a TV, so story is better and has much of fan service things but Bushiroad is not bad ether although it is something more like a family movie. If you like one, might like other too.
