Jiyu Nanohana is an ordinary schoolgirl until she runs across a scatterbrained 300 year old samurai who tells her that she is the reincarnation of Yagyu Jubei. With the help of the "Lovely Eyepatch" she transforms into the legendary swordsman whenever she needs to use his awesome fighting ability, which she needs to do quite often as a rival clan is dead set on conquering Yagyu to satisfy an old family grudge.

Jubei-chan is an anime that probably fools most viewers at its start. What appears to be a stereotypical show about average high school kids who must save the day from evil bad guys is actually a clever satirical comedy. This is hard to realize at first because it plays so many of its cliches straight that it can easily be mistaken for one of the very shows that it mocks. And, if you've seen enough of those kinds of shows, this one may already turn you off by the intro scene; after all, it involves the played out scenario of two rival samurai battling to read more

I expected much more, all my friends were hyping this to the moon. They said it was great, but they were wrong. What's sad is the potential that this anime has to be great, it has such a good story line. Unfortunately where this show suffers greatly is in the pathetic writing job. It takes forever for the characters to develop, and I swear they're saying the same things every episode (example: Episode 1: "I'm not Jubei, I'm Jiyu Nanohana". Episode 2 "I'm not Jubei, I'm Jiyu Nanohana". Episode 3: You get the picture)

Not only does the show suffer read more

There is really nothing wrong with this anime.

For the most part, I was expecting it to be something else entirely.

What I got instead was a comedy that felt really refreshing for some oddly satisfying reason. Maybe it was how often Jubei said "huh" or maybe it was how they actually did not take the time to draw the unimportant characters when they appeared in a scene. But, the enjoyment level, for the most part, was pretty great.

Most of these reviews, I imagine, took it seriously. Well, this anime has both seriousness and comedy, but more heavy on the latter. And for those that took it read more

Laohoam- This anime started out kinda fun in the beginning, but the nonsense seemed to take over more in the end. The end game started to become more serious delving more into her past and a lot more character development, but it seemed at each crucial part they would botch it by throwing some weird scene in or just destroying the plot. Overall it was ok for a quick watch but not so sure the second season will be worth the effort.

Tadgh: This was kind of a throw away anime for me. It was ok, and I'd watch it again, but read more
