The story takes place in a time when the world is in the pits of despair after being ravaged by a poison called "shinobi" that came to earth via an asteroid. The people run away to the place called "Kairiku," a place that used to be the bottom of the ocean. Here, the people try and protect themselves against the effects of the poison. 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.

((May contain some spoilers!))

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. Although it was a unique plot, at times the story felt rushed. It especially felt rushed when you could tell where scenes were cut to make the movie shorter. Things escalated quite quickly towards the read more

[Note: there are some minor spoilers contained in this review, but none that aren't already glaringly obvious as one watches this special. I've marked it so you know where to skip if you want absolutely no spoilers.]

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

I don't really write reviews, but I couldn't stop thinking about how disappointed I was. I will not write any spoilers even though I think that it would be useful to defend my point.

Story- 2
The story had a nice introduction for what is essentially a 90 min movie. It sets up a world full of potential and gets the introduction across without too many questions and fairly quickly. Unfortunately, that's all I have good to say about the story as it goes downhill from there. From what I have read before, people usually lump this in with character (and I'll do read more

Surprisingly decent, the ending isn't shit like oh so often. And all endings which are just that, ENDINGS, deserve praise. So points where points are due.

Other than that this is a one and a half hour long episode of any generic sci-fi post apocalyptic shounen anime.
It doesn't bring anything new to the table, but it pulls of what it aims to pull of;
nothing special at all

There was some cringe:ing, but I don't hate myself for watching it.

Not something I would recommend, to anyone really, but I guess some people potentialy could enjoy it.

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).
