Synopsis

Jiyu Nanohana is an ordinary schoolgirl until she runs across a scatterbrained 300 year old samurai who tells her that she is the reincarnation of Yagyu Jubei. With the help of the "Lovely Eyepatch" she transforms into the legendary swordsman whenever she needs to use his awesome fighting ability, which she needs to do quite often as a rival clan is dead set on conquering Yagyu to satisfy an old family grudge.

I expected much more, all my friends were hyping this to the moon. They said it was great, but they were wrong. What's sad is the potential that this anime has to be great, it has such a good story line. Unfortunately where this show suffers greatly is in the pathetic writing job. It takes forever for the characters to develop, and I swear they're saying the same things every episode (example: Episode 1: "I'm not Jubei, I'm Jiyu Nanohana". Episode 2 "I'm not Jubei, I'm Jiyu Nanohana". Episode 3: You get the picture)

Not only does the show suffer read more

There is really nothing wrong with this anime.

For the most part, I was expecting it to be something else entirely.

What I got instead was a comedy that felt really refreshing for some oddly satisfying reason. Maybe it was how often Jubei said "huh" or maybe it was how they actually did not take the time to draw the unimportant characters when they appeared in a scene. But, the enjoyment level, for the most part, was pretty great.

Most of these reviews, I imagine, took it seriously. Well, this anime has both seriousness and comedy, but more heavy on the latter. And for those that took it read more

This was one of those animes I thought was so bad that it was amusing... The main character is one of those cliche school girl characters, but the whole show is kind of mocking the whole "school girl gets power, saves world" idea. The quote "Get me out of this screwy anime" almost makes it worth it anyway....

Back on topic, the other main characters are much better than Jubei is-- she gets kind of annoying-- Her father is hilarious, he made me laugh out loud on several occasions as did the samurai.

The plot... Well, you people saw the description, she gets a lovely read more

Laohoam- This anime started out kinda fun in the beginning, but the nonsense seemed to take over more in the end. The end game started to become more serious delving more into her past and a lot more character development, but it seemed at each crucial part they would botch it by throwing some weird scene in or just destroying the plot. Overall it was ok for a quick watch but not so sure the second season will be worth the effort.

Tadgh: This was kind of a throw away anime for me. It was ok, and I'd watch it again, but read more
