This 1990 OVA about two warrior women is in my opinion pretty alright. What initially drew me to it was that it had two female MC's that looked pretty badass on the cover art, I'm a guy who loves strong women so i was all for that.
Story: lets start with the story. In my opinion the story is confusing. we are given some exposition at the beginning but for me it didnt help much. We the viewers learn the story at the same time as the two main characters. I would sat that its a typical convoluted fantasy story. Whether its good or bad might
depend on the viewer, for me it was alright. There is one thing I liked but that might have to do with the time in which the anime was released and not the anime itself. Even though its an adventure story and not an overly dark narrative people die, children die and there's blood when people get cut down. Its different than in anime today where the only time you will see this sort of impact of death is in very dark anime.
Art: The art was decently good, i do believe this was originally VHS so that kind of affects the quality of what we see. But all in all the art is typical of early 90's anime.
Characters: Now this is the one thing that i believe makes this anime worth watching and its for sure what got me interested in it. This anime most definitely passes the bechdel test, even though i think that test is B.S it has some merit. The two main characters Efe and Jira are two sword wielding princesses away from their homeland. The two have a partnership and feel developed as characters. Efe uses her magic to supplement her swordplay and outwit her opponents or distract them while Jira uses her masterful swordsmanship coupled with her great strength to break through her opponents guard. Theres also the three siblings which Efe and Jira help. The siblings are the driving point behind the story and I felt their hardships and loss along with them.
In the end this is a neat little adventure anime spawned from the 90's. I enjoyed it, though I wish i could see more of the princesses adventures hinted at in the opening. I give this Anime a solid 7!
