Ryofu Housen (Lu Bu) is a powerful general from the Three Kingdoms; alongside Chinkyuu (Chen Gong), Ryofu suddenly finds himself falling to Earth, and landing... in the body of an elementary school student?! With their new lives as flat-chested, women-loving children, Ryofu and Chinkyuu follow their hunger and their desire to get back to their old lives somehow; but it will be difficult, given the variety of obstacles in their way including old enemies, epic monster battles and the most important thing of all, trying to get their hands on Eri-sensei's mammoth F-cup breasts!
Those who are squeamish about sexual innuendo's or visual jokes about the human anatomy and sexual preference should not watch this show by all means. But others who don't care about that stuff because its commonplace in an anime this one is a cant miss.
Can't miss because its 4 episodes and because it's a pretty laugh out loud comedy if you don't mind the aforementioned style of comedy. Basically the story starts out as Ryofuko Housen, a general for the Three Kingdoms and his Lieutenant get transported from their alternate universe to the real world with one catch.... They turned into preteen little girls.
At first, the viewer is going to turn out and think this is going to be a lolicon festival. For the most part the viewer is right and wrong. Right as in theres so much fanservice than there are stars in the sky, but wrong as in if you watch it closely its making fun of lolicons in every which way imaginable.
I say that because the for the first time in in a LONG while I actually found the male characters more of a draw to the show than the girls. The guys are all hilarious in every way. From homosexual acts to lolicon fetishes, they get stuck in the worst predicaments its hilarious. And when I mean males i mean the ones sounding like actual men, not the chibiko girl voices of Ryofuko and company. My favorite was the voice of Koujin, being the narrator and a character in the show you will hear his voice everywhere but its never gets old. Simply because the voice is so serious but he's stuck in hilarious situations. The whole show is like that.
Never mind the story, the story is complete and utter hogwash. But the overall character chemistry, personalities, their voices and situations make this show so fun to watch. None of it will make sense and it even makes fun of itself for doing so but anyone who enjoys laughing at otakus, homos, lolicons, perverts, and such, give this show a shot. Its just pure adult comedy.
Lolis, fan service, comedy. If these are the three most important factors for enjoying anime, then you'll love this series.
This OVA series is shameless. It flings a few RotK generals at Japan from the sky in loli form without explanation where they proceed to go to school and mess around and show off their bodies and stuff. Plot points are picked up and dropped at random, things that seem like they're going somewhere trail off into gags, and if you think this series is a bunch of crap being thrown at a wall for fun just wait for the last episode where you'll be proven
absolutely correct. Ryofuko-chan is super cute, and her henshin sequence is one of my favorites, the nudity paired with the Chinese warlord theme is great. The ending is hilarious and proves how shameless this series really is.
As I said, you'll enjoy this a lot if you like parody and lolis and perhaps if you're into the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series or similar Chinese war general stuff as it exhibits quite a few characters from Chinese history in various forms(Lu Bu as a loli and Guan Yu as himself, for example). If lolis, parody, or Chinese history isn't within your interests, then I don't even know how you got to this page or why you would watch this.
This show i feel could've been better but it's comes across as just nothing but fan service and little children being in adult situations.
Feel like the story should be i guess more grounded in reality and also have the show go on for the at least a season of 12 episodes.
Last thing to mention that will have Spoilers is the ending.
The story just stops on this big and weird cliff hanger of the MC finally getting back to earth after being abducted by aliens. Turns out that the MC still has the same body of when he left but all the other
characters have grown up cause it's been 10 years.
Not only is this dumb if this isn't a dream as he said right before the episode ended. But it's made even worse cause that's when it ends.
The show only having 4 episodes hurts it a good amount. Everything feels rushed and nonsensical.
Would've loved if this if it took itself a little more seriously.
First of all, I AM A CHINESE living in China Hong Kong. I do studied The Three Kingdoms period for acadamic needs and self interest. Again as a Chinese, I'm quite strict on stories/animes based off The Three Kingdoms - and in this case, Ryofuko is not that good.
Being a fanservice anime, I didn't require story that is very rich or interesting. And though the first half of the story is decent to me (where it explained that how the manly man Ryofu turns into a loli girl), however, the storyline totally didn't made good use of the Three Kingdoms. Some characters with the
same names are appeared but their personalities, settings etc. are totally not related to the originals, and the Three Kingdoms background didn't play an important role despite naming the characters.
The art is okay, you know as a fanservice anime art is important right? The main girls are pretty well drawn, fans of this genre would be pleased. Though the guys are comparetively poor (compared with other fanservice anime's minority guys). I do not like the show, but I Chinkyu is very appealing to me I have to admit. (and I'm not a loli con)
Cute op and ed. And the ost is decent, fair enough for such a fanservice anime.
Most female characters are cute, but then again their bonding with the Three Kingdoms are way too weak. The main selling point for a Three Kingdoms based anime is its Three Kingdom theme! Lacking those important bondages is simply no fun, no different from watching a below average lolicon fanservice anime. (And Ryofuko who is a magical girl didn't feel like Ryofu, and the famous Sou Sou even has a personality that TOTALLY opposed the original historical figure)
It is boring, no fun. So far below average - and mainly because of my strict attitude on its Three Kingdom theme so that I failed to focus on its cuteness.
Overall: 5/10 (I rated 4/10 in my profile, but 5/10 is much more decent for all)
If you'd like a fighting magical girl, I reccomand Dokuro-chan for you.
If you'd like a very cutre magical girl(with tons of fanservice), I reccomand Moe-tna.
It you'd like a Three Kingdom based fanservice anime, I highly reccomand Koihime Musou(which I love very much) for you, it has awesome characters, soundtrack and storylines.)
But not Ryofuko, this anime attempted many high aims(fighting scenes, Three Kingdoms, magical loli girl etc.) but none of them was achieved. Anyway if you just wanna take a break, kill time, this simple, brainless - but somehow quite cute(Just look that that Chinkyu, Cuute!), watch it then.
