Set in the flourishing world of Jinga that was formerly a prosperous and peaceful realm, the female protagonist is deemed to be the key to bring back order and to rule this world.
Chaos started when people, specifically soldiers, who have special powers like turning into a vampire and a man-wolf, called the Getsugazoku, fight for their land. These soldiers of different species would put their life on the line and fight as they follow their own thoughts and ideals. Until one day, she was called by a mysterious lady named "Himemiko" due to the protagonist's blood bearing a mysterious power to give strength, healing, and to awake Jingazoku's real form. This is a story of love and war that she must not miss in order to rule the world.
Its not good but not a total flop well to me at least. there were moments where they tried to involve you into the story, the setting, the somewhat "epic" battlefield between the warlords and well zombie-like monsters but the way they presented it was really boring.
None of the characters were really memorable at all, heck even after forcing myself through the anime i can barely remember 1 or 2 characters and the only reason i can remember the mc's name is because they wouldn't shut up about her. Sure i get that she is the mc and all
but she took up so much screen time that the other boys barely have any character development at all, even when they do get their screen time, most of it felt boring. Another thing is that everytime the mc take the stage, she is either playing that same old innocent virgin-like nice girl role or being the damsel in distress making her more like a liability rather than someone you would love and want to protect.
What really killed it for me is that once again another animal sidekick is considered useless
The only thing I *kind of* liked about this anime is the opening theme song and possibly some of the voice actors (i dont blame the seiyus for their awful lines). That's it. The rest are all poorly, if not dreadfully executed.
I stick with the series because of the Sengoku theme but there have been a few times that I wanted to just drop this show altogether as it was ultimately lazy and boring so to speak.
As usual it starts with the reverse harem theme: Ordinary girl gets transported to another world where its mostly dominated by guys and they all swoon over her for
no reason. As a reverse harem fan like me, I don't mind if the heroine is a little useless, annoying as they seem, I usually give them the benefit of the doubt and wait till they reveal their redeeming qualities that makes them a little bit likable.
Yuzuki (MC) on the other hand is way too useless, even her lines are so lazy and it just made the show so bland its aggravating. There was no utter motive why everyone likes her. She says one useless thing then bam! instant like from a warlord! lol
The plot started with everyone fighting for unification then a girl comes along with her special blood but no one even dares to drink it just because... (I've heard in the game they actually do). Out of the blue some evil spirits (yakuma) enters the scene because they are after her blood too and it wasnt explained why. So in the end everyone decided to set their differences and fight together for her sake. No plot twists whatsoever. It feels like its just a show for the sake of hyper commercialism on the game.. Like "you wanted more? Play the game!" sort of thing.
So no, I do not recommend this anime. I do not like how Toyotomi Hideyoshi looks in this show either... what's up with the get up?!
Over all I rated this a 3. Tbh It's not even a good show to pass the time. Rather it puts you to sleep.
Keep in mind, this is based on an otome game. The story and characters are pulled from that. In the game, each army is designed by a different illustrator and you can sort of see that in the character design but the images in the game are BEAUTIFUL. The images in the anime...well, the animation really failed this one, even if I was entertained by the show.
The first few episodes have horrible lighting issues but seem to even out a bit after about episode three. Sadly, overall the animation is poor. Characters are often distorted and what could have been
epic fight scenes were mostly stills with shakey camera tricks or 80's style lasers for sword cuts. It was.....beyond bad. Also very disappointing. While I was watching I couldn't help but think about how better the animation could have been.
Script wise I'm not sure this one knew what it wanted to be. Reverse harem or full on Sengoku story. It seemed to only have small moments of a reverse harem but the story of the fighting warlords was never fleshed out very well. I wish they would have decided what they wanted this anime to be because it could have been a fun time as a reverse harem or it could have been an excellent Sengoku piece with amazing fight scenes but it chose to do neither well at all.
Again, I did enjoy watching it, but it had so much wasted potential.
I wasn't sure what to think of this series going through it, definitely has a reverse harem feel to it, and probably more for those that like twilight or such.
Story: very forgettable, you have the main char a woman trapped in a alternative time period when Oda Nobunaga was conquering, and it just...doesn't seem to go anywhere, there are zombie like things that attack, but they are barley addressed till the end, Most of the series is just the main char tossed from one army to the next as everyone falls in love with her and she's treated as
Art: it's passable, don't really remember much memorable, the action seems are mostly forgettable other then a few okay moments at the end.
Characters: Not much here, you have werewolves, vampires and such, but mostly in name only, most of the time they don't really act that way, and again everyone wants the main char so very little development.
Enjoyment and overall: I didn't really enjoy it that much, you might if your into twilight and such, but even then it felt shallow, I kept waiting for more action to happen as there is a setup for it, but it never seemed to develope.
