The record of the bloody battle between the twelve proud warriors—

The 12th Twelve Tournament that gets held every twelve years... Twelve brave warriors who bear the names of the signs of the zodiac fight each other for the lives and souls. The participants are twelve very strange warriors: "Rat," "Ox," "Tiger," "Rabbit," "Dragon," "Snake," "Horse," "Goat," "Monkey," "Rooster," "Dog," and "Pig."

The victor of this tournament gets to have one wish granted, whatever the wish may be. The one wish they want granted—

Who will be the final survivor?

Fate zero is an anime.....

Juuni Taisen is an anime about 12 scumbag mercenary's named after the Zodiac signs or whatever the fuck, fighting to the death for one wish.

There's 12 characters and 12 episodes and since all but one of them has to die by the end of the anime... They kill someone off every episode, and to give the characters a little depth before they die the writers shove 15 minutes of exposition down your throat before killing the character said exposition corresponds to with an obsessive level of violence effectively wasting your time because you just learned the backstory read more

Some spoilers.

It's unbelievable how terrible this anime is. The premise of the show is that these 12 "badass" mercenary warriors each representing a zodiac animal are pitted against each other to fight to the death for the victory to be granted any wish much like that of the Fate series. The battle that takes place every 12 years (like the zodiac calendar) is supposed to be a war that replaces all other wars in the world to prevent the unnecessary loss of life, but yet the show constantly flashback to each warriors history of years of war experience. This completely contradicts the whole premise.

This is an extremely fast-paced show so if you are the type of person that likes deep character development and to bond with the characters in a killing game story this might not be for you. If you are the type of person to like nonstop action with a small amount of character development you've come to the right place. Every episode we learn the short backstory of a character then we watch them fight. The story itself is about 12 people representing the zodiac killing each other to retrieve a poisoned gem from each other bodies and then getting the one inside you read more

To be honest, I was amazed at the aesthetics of the show, and could see how easily this alone would be one of the underdogs for the Fall season.

To the setting is just like the Chinese Zodiac, where the 12 animals pit themselves against each other in a battle royale for the supreme, where the last animal/human representative standing would be granted a wish of any kind (oh, and also obtain the poison gems).

Right from the start, this show embodies folklore with the oh-so-exact replicate of the order of the animals, so the order of assassination goes backwards (spoiler predictability) or that the creators choose read more
