Then one day there was a set of twins, a boy(Tatara) and a girl(Sarasa) was born and a prophet declares that the boy is the chosen one which would save them from their predicament.

The anime in itself was very interesting and had a lot of potential to be a good anime however, be it only thirteen episodes it clearly displayed that it was unfinished.With that being said it was only okay, could have been better if the plot had finished with answers answered and goals were achieved.

Art : 7
The art was pretty basic for me. I didn't find it spectacular but it also is a anime from the early 90's, so in that aspect I found it just okay.

Characters: 9
Each character that was present and brought forth were unique and really thought about. Sarasa and read more

Recommendations

Both have a fantasy setting, though Juuni Kokuki has more of an ancient China like setting while Legend of Basara has more of a medieval one and both have strong female leads whom are seen as "the chosen ones".
I believe its similar with the family revenge and the long journey to meet friends along the way. They are both about land and war and time settings is similar.
