As a guy who have watched all three seasons of Ikkitousen (also wrote review for each of them), I will be briefly going over a few pros and cons about this third season, named Great Guardians (GG).

Unlike the previous seasons which focused greatly on the story of Romance of the Three Kingdom, GG was different (primarily due to the apparent defeat of Sousou in Dragon Destiny). As some of you may already know, GG is completely original (*I treat it like a "filler" series*). So not much previous knowledge of the first 2 seasons are required in order to understand GG.

In this, the third Ikkitousen anime, it seems as if the makers simply didn't care anymore and threw all the pretence of a story out of the window. Instead of yet another thirteen episodes connected by some sub-par plot on ancient warriors reborn and duking it out, we get a plot device that is mostly there to have good girls do bad deeds in a ridiculous and consciously self-mocking fashion. It's actually a rather fun ride - if you don't mind the occasional badly animated bared breast.

As Ikkitousen: Great Guardians follows on two earlier anime the show assumes that the main characters and their general read more

Most of the Ikkitousen series is a nightmare. But since season 3 feels like it completely abandons its old dry plot, there's almost a whole new story that is actually bearable and decent. With a much better story line, the fanservice now becomes worth it. That being said, Ikkitousen does a great job upholding the ecchi tag. So if you're a titty-hatin' queer, go ahead and move on. Additionally, this season features a ton of god's gift to anime, Ryofu. Season 3 has a few good battles to offer as well. All in all, this is the best Ikkitousen has to offer.

Great Guardians is apparently the third in the Ikkitosen series. However, I'm reviewing this one fresh to the franchise.

First off, I have no idea how these girls move around as they must have an incredibly huge burden on their shoulders. Other than that, expect unusually weak clothing that must be made out of thin paper. In any case, if you're at all sensitive to ecchi series, high levels of fan-service, or full frontal nudity I'd recommend you steer clear of this.

It you are able to handle these, then Great Guardians offers you a modest story line with some interesting characters. The series is focused around read more
