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.

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

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

Recommendations

Very similar humor, story, and main girl character.
Okay, okay, go ahead and laugh if you so please, but Saya Kisaragi's ditzy, happy-go-lucky personality could mirror Jiyuu Nanohana's personality. They, also, turn into powerful combatants once something triggers them to lose control of their persona and turn dangerous and cool. In Jiyuu's case, that something is a "magical/possessed" eyepatch that basically transforms her into the female version of Yagyu Jubei, and in Saya's case, it is generally resurfacing memories that changes her. Despite there being plenty of differences, I still think Blood-C ironically feels like Jubei-chan the Ninja Girl with considerably more edge and gore in fights, prettier CLAMP art, and less goofball humor. Blood-C's does fill in most of its plot holes and deliver a few plot twists; however, the bare bones plot in the first few episodes of Blood-C at least is reminiscent of Jubei-chan the Ninja Girl's weird and unusual style, humor, and slice of life bits. Neither are terrible to watch and don't really deserve such low ratings, but I feel both are generally either hit or miss kind of shows to alot of people.
