Hyouge Mono is an anime I do not recommend to anyone. Not because it is bad, but because it is completely on a different level. It is not a flower you can just buy and toss later. It is a fragile one, blooms in desolate lands, and you need a bit of effort to find it. It will never gather an army of fans screaming the best anime ever. It will never get the highest ratings. Most people will not even like it. They will quickly get bored and discard this gem. Then what makes Hyouge Mono great? Not its animation or sound quality. The read more

Social upheaval, constant military conflict and political intrigue are the main characteristics of the Sengoku period; as a matter of fact, it could be described as a chaotic world, a clashing of individuals with vast ambitions. Admist the turmoil, the importance of Aesthetics, a philosophy of art, is not be forgotten, which influences that particular era significantly. Rather than focussing upon the various battles itself, Hyouge Mono showcases the importance of aesthetics, including fantastic characterization of its varied cast of characters. It comes together with a great narrative, along with fantastic and well placed comedy that serve to lighten the atmosphere at appropriate times.

About freakin' time I get a chance to complete and review this. I can't believe it took two years for fansubbers to complete all the episodes to it. But anyway, on with the review...

Hyouge Mono did quite a bit for me in sticking out from the mold of many recent anime offerings. The series offers a mix of comedy and drama in its focus on Furuta Sasuke's love of tea ceremonies and the complicated politics surrounding the war for territories in Japan's Sengoku era. The series is a historical title with emphasis on famous figures of the time period and its politics. With the large read more

Bee Train's most recent (and probably the last) Hyouge Mono is a historically inspired anime from the Japanese warring states period. Derived from the manga of the same name, it follows this turbulent period of Japanese history through the main protagonist Furuta Sasuke.

Furuta is a fantastic character that drives this anime forward. He is a major source of comedy in this light hearted show with rather serious themes. His desires, monologues and contradictions are exaggerated, contrasted and mocked for comedy as he encounters people of differing powers and personalities.

In these encounters is where I found Hyouge Mono truly excel. Themes and ideas are explored read more
