Despair War is a battle between ancient guns and contemporary guns. Due to a nuclear war, the world was destroyed. Under the full governance of a world empire, people are living with their freedom taken. Despite the forbidden rule of owning any weapons, there is a resistance that secretly fights against the world empire. They own ancient guns left as art and fight using these. Then, the Kijuushi appear as the souls of the ancient guns. Proud and magnificent, the "Absolute Royal" are the only ones that can give hope to this world. The story depicts the everyday life of the Kijuushi. Laughter, despair, happiness, confusion, pain; they would still pursue their own absolute loyalty to fight. What do they fight for? What should they protect?

This anime is definitely about war. It has lots of war related things such as guns, and nuclear missiles, and hunger and misery. This anime clearly does take part inside war settings.

This is not me being stupid, but the author of this work practicing world-building. It is even worse than I have managed to make it sound.

Our war dudes are definitely dudes. We have bishie, moral hero, bishie 2, crossdresser maiden, bishie 3. Ponytail crossdresser, bishie 4, and one more crossdresser.

The idea behind this show is apparently to mock war veterans and male soldiers by giving all of our characters generic harem design and read more

Wow oh wow...never have I seen much disdain for a series (a game adaptation nonetheless), that even the MAL score seems to resonate this series relegation to the worst, untouched shows of the Summer season (I would call it the Mars of Destruction of Summer 2018). And to top it all off, the idea that director Kenichi Kasai (Nodame Cantabile, Bakuman) wanted to produce this really baffles me a lot. But with all that said, what is this series about and what does it do?

To give the backdrop, Senjūushi, or The Thousand Musketeers, is a game that exists in the LINE app of games read more

I'll give you my total honest review under this.

Thinking about watching Senjuushi? Dont. Are you here 4 years from now when Senjuushi became a meme like sao? Yes. You need to be up to date to the memes.

Let me elaborate. Its shit. Its actually really shit. The sounds are not matched with the animations. The animations are out of this world. And its made by TMS ENTERTAINMENT. The studio which fave us big 4head girl. an anime thats still fucking aring and a shit ton of sport animes.

Senjuushi itself has wrong tags, dont get mislead. It says action and Military which for the first read more

(This is a joke, probably)

I really think this anime adaption was meant 1. For current players of the mobile game and 2. To bring more people to the game (probably failed pfft).

This anime is bad, it's really really bad. Mind you this is coming from a dedicated player of the game (don't ask to add me or anything or whatever I only have three 5 stars it's a disaster rate-up's a lie), Senjuushi's anime adaptation is horrendous.

Animation: There's this one really nice Furusato sequence (I think) in episode 10 that's about it (slay queen)
Art: Please just play/look up the game is you want Senjuushi's read more
