Characters & Voice Actors
The basic premise behind 'Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls' is the story of an atypical male harem lead character, who has the ability to transform girls into MASTER SAMURAI i.e. freaking strong god-like fighters by kissing them.
Yes, that’s it. That is the entire plot right there. You have 13 Episodes of a single guy surrounded by half naked girls giving fan-service and creating lustful, semi-comedic moments.
So the plot is typical harem anime. The plot could have been so much better and made this anime epic, but it wasn't.
The Animation is awesome. When I watched the first episode, I was like holy Neon genesis evangelion this anime is going to be epic. The level of details and art style makes for great watching. It’s really hard tofind flaws in the animation, nearly impossible if you are not a pro.
Imagine an exquisite ink painting. Now imagine it moves and flows like a painter is painting a picture at the same time you are watching anime. This is the animation quality of Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls, and it’s amazing.
Solid music and sound effects set atmosphere. Good but not great.
1: A typical male lead who is easily embarrassed.
2: A typical female character with the mental capacity of a 5 year old likes to get half naked.
This is a harem anime. The characters are typical like in all ecchi/harem animes.
Only because of great animation I gave a very good mark.
If you're after an exquisitely animated series packed with action, comedy and fan service 'Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls' may be for you if you don't care about terrible plot development.
Hope the 2 season will have less fan service.
Oh man.. It's another samurai harem. What's with Japanese people and turning historical figures into high school girls? Anyways, this anime series is based on a light novel series written by Akira Suzuki. Wait a minute. I know what are you wondering.. "Hey isn't the main male lead name is Muneakira?" Yes you're right. I mean if you're writing a story about a harem, wouldn't you want to be the center of it? And let's just add "Mune" to your name and nobody would even notice.
(Yes, I know Mune can also mean breasts..)
I really had high expectations with this one. No kidding. It's been a long time since I've watch an anime about samurais. Unfortunately, as promising as this anime looks, here comes the hundreds of unnecessary fanservice and fillers to drown out the story. Oh sure, I'll like a few fillers now and then but they're rush the entire plot buildup right to the end of the series.
Now on the positive side, the reason why I sticked to this anime (No it's not because of the fanservice...) it's the astounding art this anime brings forward. It's a bit nostalgic as this reminds me of the game I used to play about a b*tch.. Umm I mean about a wolf (Ookami was it?)
Anyways, rarely I've seen an anime which uses the traditional ink style for all it's censorship and transition point however it gets annoying over time.
I have no complaints about the sound either.
And here comes the characters. What? Only three girls in his harem?? Lame.. However, all three of them have some useful personalities to assist with their ever useless male harem lead. And Im suprised there's more tsunderes than Ive expected! As usual, as the story develops, each girl had their chance to express their feelings to Mr "Breast" Akira here.
Oh boy, once again the male harem lead is there as a wallflower for every battle. Every battle when you think Muneakira is going to take charge and battle, prepare to get disappointed. Remember, this anime is aimed for people who loves fanservice so they wouldn't want to see a guy in the battle now would they? Hey, at least he isn't dense unlike some other male harem leads.
And what about the villains? Twisted as usual. Nothing new here.
Personally, I quite enjoyed this anime. That's because unlike others, I did not take the story seriously from the start after watching a few episodes of fillers. If you're looking for a nice samurai story with a decent plot then go look elsewhere. As entertaining as this may be, I wont be watching it again as this sort of anime is where you watch it once and you're already content. I mean, can you watch 12 whole episode about "Love", "Honor", and "Bond" all over again?
Overall, it's a good time killer if you have nothing better to do. Definitely a must watch anime for all you harem lovers. Just don't let the whole ideology of "Love and Honor conquers all" get stuck with you. Remember, an anime is an anime, and real life is just like an anime, without those big eyes.
Both literally revolve around a bunch of girls becoming a type of subordinate to some guy through a kiss. Lots of fan service and magical type fighting in both. Crazy outfits and hot girls... need I say more?
Very similar story, powerful girls in love with a guy, unlike sekerei the guy is pretty powerful in reference to he can fight with the girls, similar to sekirei becuase the girls have to kiss him to increase in powerr, both shows being ecchi, involve kissing for power ups
Although, it takes within a different setting, both of these series involves the main character surrounded by various girls in some action packed (with some ecchi) scenes.
The male protagonist also uses a "kiss" in both series to enhance the powers of these girls in combat. Despite the fan-service, there is a darker atmosphere surrounding both series and the plot does deepens as the episodes progresses.
Expect fighting, action, comedy, drama, and ecchi.
One male created a harem of girls who fight for him and to power up the female warriors both male characters need to kiss the female character and both female character has a mark on them
Both are ecchi and in both animes, the protagonist kisses the girls to give them power..
Both are harem/ecchi/battle animes that revolve around a male who gets females to follow him and also fall in love with him. Also, in both, the females that surround the male have incredible battle strength. They both have good artwork, and both have a lot of focus on the ecchi-ness and fan service (which, if you liked Samurai Girls, is something you enjoy). If you enjoyed Samurai Girls, you will see an alarming amount of similarities between these two animes
