The Edo period of Japan gave rise to a clan of warriors with a very specialized, magical skill. The clan was known as the Manyuu, and the skill was the ability to administer a sword strike that could shrink the size of a woman's breasts. This might not seem like an ability that could exert power over a land, but in Manyuu Hikenchou, large breasts denote status, wealth, fame, and influence.

Grave concern has arisen in the Manyuu clan due to the actions of their chosen successor, Chifusa. Disgusted with the breast obsessed society that the Manyuu have created and perpetuated, Chifusa has not only deserted the clan, but also stolen the sacred scroll that details their techniques to growing and severing breasts.

Fortunately, Chifusa is not completely alone. Her fellow warrior Kaede is sympathetic to her cause; a sympathy that could place her in considerable danger. Now wanted by the very clan that raised her, Chifusa must defend her life and Kaede's while seeking to undo the damage their brethren have done to the land. Along the way, Chifusa will discover that she harbors a power that goes far beyond the scope of her training, one that could help shape and change the land that she seeks to bring equality to.

Whether you are going to watch this anime because of plot or the other plot, it's worth either way. Set in a parallel version of the Taihei Edo period, the series follows the busty samurai, Chifusa and her attendant Kaede.

Story (7/10)

In Manyuu Hikenchou, it's all about breasts. Breasts give you power, fame, wealth and respect. And so as you've realized, the plot revolves around breasts, the bigger the better. Chifusa and her attendant Kaede travel around the Japan to reach its final destination, Chifusa's home village in order to learn the ultimate technique: Breast Flow (乳流れ Chichi-nagare). Chichi-nagare allows to control the form of read more

I had to come back to this one. I watched a little bit of the first episode and immediately decided it was too much like Queen’s Blade. I watched some other things instead. When I finally sat down to watch it, I was pleasantly surprised.

I have a hard time sitting through many ecchi shows. Queen’s Blade was troublesome and Seikon no Qwaser was completely unwatchable, but I actually enjoyed Manyuu Hikenchou. I think it’s because it knows it’s ridiculous and never remotely takes itself seriously. It also does a remarkably good job of not acting like the rest read more

"This anime has big tits in it, so it can't be good" - The serious and mature MAL critic.

Manyuu Hikenchou is an erotic, samurai, action-comedy anime with a ridiculous premise that manages to be both superficially entertaining for its obvious ridiculousness and genuinely entertaining for the kind of story it's trying to tell. The episodes are mainly episodic in nature, but there is an overall narrative that never actually gets lost in unnecessary bullshit. Even seemingly filler scenarios and story beats manage to meander their way into the main story, becoming relevant by the end of the episode, or later on in the series, read more

There's likely only 'two reasons' you might want to watch this, and it probably isn't for the story or characters.

And that's okay.

But thankfully, Manyuu Hikenchou does manage to fit likeable characters and a mostly engaging plot between it's other, main, bouncy draw.

One thing that separates the show is how surprisingly good natured it is to the inhabitants of it's breast obsessed world.

Instead of taking the cheap and lazy route of abusing characters for titillating pay off's, it takes time to let us learn about and even respect them.

Although the main plot is too ludicrous to ever take fully seriously, Manyuu Hikenchou does explore many read more
