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

This is entirely preliminary as only 3 episodes are out, but so far, I gotta say, I'm impressed. I'm gonna try to do the best I can writing about it without major spoilers and I will update this when I've seen the whole thing. Be warned, minor spoilers for the basic synopsis and things that happen in episode 1 will be in this so I suggest watching it first.

First, the story. 12 warriors, each carrying the names of one of the 12 Zodiac animals are gathered together to fight each other to the death in a free for all, no holds barred battle for both read more

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
