Synopsis

Once upon a time, the demon lord Rchimedes spread terror throughout the world, until he was eventually sealed away by the legendary hero Creasion. Since then, a thousand years have passed peacefully. However, a mysterious hole has opened up between the demon and human spheres, and countless demons have surged into the human realm once more. Coming to the conclusion that Rchimedes would soon return to wreak havoc, a human king summons the possible descendants of the legendary hero—all 75 of them. Unfortunately, after so long, it was too difficult to pinpoint his true descendants.

Among the lionhearted prospects is the amateur adventurer Alba Frühling. His skills may not be top-notch, but he is accompanied by the talented soldier Ross, who helps the young hero whenever he is in a pinch...or at least, he is supposed to. Though undoubtedly a skilled warrior, Ross is actually both sarcastic and sadistic, and hence revels in Alba's suffering.

Senyuu. is a comedic adventure following the unlikely duo as they struggle in their endeavor to defeat the demon lord, meeting various eccentrics along the way.

Anime is a dying medium.

We spit on the carcasses of animators and seiyuus from past battles. No anime has particularly captured the spirit of the good times (the 80s and 90s). Look at ourselves squabbling what is the best anime this season; we are not united. There's even some of us who say none of the anime this season is actually good. Inside our corrupted minds, the inner voice is telling us, "No, this anime will never be good as Anime X." It is how human nature works: we are negative, brutish, cynical beings.

But one adventurous director has decided to fight against the odds read more

'not helpful' and 'not agree' are different things. I have put much work into it to make it 'helpful'. If you find it is actually 'not helpful', please send me a comment suggesting why, so I can improve future reviews. I think the community is better served by having diverse opinions promoted on content, rather than popularity through agreement. Thank you.

Quick & dirty:
It's 4.5 mins long, & 1/3 is the outro. I laughed every episode, so far- so that counts for something. Try it- it's too short not to.

Senyuu is a general hilarious story of the adventures of Alba and Ros to defeat the demon king. The story follows a particular video game style much like old Final Fantasy (Utilizing a control pad to attack or defend). The story involves quit a lot of slapstick humor, as well as many references to characters being perverted ("Tentacles are sexy").

The art work is very well drawn, although simple. The artwork also tends to change from time to time, with great detail.

The sound quality is great. The actors do a wonderful job depicting each character.
The characters are good, but have no real change in their read more

Shorts are quite rare in Anime, and as like majority of the shorts Senyuu is a gag or comedy short in its core. But what is unique about this show is that it is based on a fantasy settings which is even more rare in shorts. Unlike many other shorts Senyuu has one other criteria that is although it tries to parody the fantasy world setting in overall it also tries to have a continuity (rather then being self contained episodes) and tries to tell a short yet somewhat coherent (somewhat comes to mind mostly due to ridiculously comic sequences) story. And that is what read more
