Life gets crazy for Hakufu when she takes on a pupil that acts just like her! A tournament between the school heads start, but due to Hakufu's negligence, her pupil ends up taking her place. The tournament isn't what it seems, and the girls find themselves in the middle of a plot to take over the clans.
More of the same from this series. It's one of almost half a dozen Romance of the three kingdoms animes being done in the same season. As before its almost pure, unadulterated fanservice with gratuitous panty shots and clothes tearing for no apparent reason.
If you like that kinda thing, watch away. If you like substance in there somewhere, avoid at all costs.
A great concept, but really bad delivery. If your a pervert you will enjoy this serious because that is all it really is. It is a flash show of panties and titties galore. The story is not bad but as you follow along through the series you lose interest.
I would say is worth watching but is not worth finishing.
Before reading please note that this is the latest season as of 2010, if you did not watch the previous seasons I highly suggest that you do so.
Right off the bat flashbacks. So if you did choose to watch this season first you will be slightly confused since there are a lot of flashbacks and references to past events. While it may be possible to just watch this series and enjoy it because of all the fan service, that alone does not make this story line good. From beginning to end, watching each characters progression through a life that they are forced to live in because to the magatama that has been passed down to them. Now that is where the story is. Each persons magatama represents a famous person from a war that happened long ago. While that does have a very big influence on how each characters act, that is not entirely the case in this season. This season try's to point everyone in the direction that you do not have to be tied down to the fate of your own magatama.
Wait... what artwork? The only thing that you notice in this anime are the girls boobs. Strategically ripped/torn clothing. I honestly can't remember but I am pretty sure that not one girl wears a bra, so every fight you see boobs. This is in my opinion the biggest selling point of this anime. You most likely watched this anime because you wanted to see half naked girls fighting each other.
Opening song is decently catchy. It is slightly fast paced to match the fact that a fighting anime is about to start. Other than that nothing much to say about the sounds, unless you want to count the moans ands groans that the girls make. ^_^
Information about characters are based on the persons magatama. Based on history from the past that information is taken into account in the present day to predict what may happen. Apparently everyone is based on a book called the three kingdoms. I don't know if the book is real or not, and honestly I don't care. Unless the book has pictures of boobs on every page I am not interested.
While the story is not the best ever, it is very entertaining to watch. Best part about this series are the fight scenes. Every single fight you see boobs left and right. It just puzzles me that the fight can be so intense that clothes are ripping everywhere, but panties seem to be indestructible. I mean come on just go all the way... but then again if that happened this anime could easily turn into a hentai. Either one would have been fine by me but whatever.
If you are the kind of person that likes to have a good story behind the anime that you watch you might want to stay away from this one, unless you like boobs. Then by all means watch this anime.read more
So, I respect fanservice. Ikkitousen has a lot of fanservice. But oh my god, it is absolutely not worth it.
This season, and most of the series, is a nightmare. The art is about the only competent feature. The plot is also so poor. In the end, you find yourself wondering what the point of all their bullshit is, other than simply being compelled via destiny. That is not a plot you grow attached to. The characters are not diverse at all and their names are completely bland and hard to memorize. There are scenes where two characters refer to the same person, by completely different names within the same 10 seconds. This absolutely boiled my blood. This mixture of characters that are difficult to distinguish and a uninspiring plot crushes the story and leaves you caring for nothing. I'm sorry, but do not waste your time here. Actually, if you want a decent Ikkitousen experience, watch season 3 instead.read more
