I like the episode.The art is nice and the fight are good ,too.
And I like the saying from Kanu Unchou when she was in the bath with Rin Rin :"If you have big dreams in your heart ,your breasts will grow big ,probably".
I laughed until I couldn´t breath anymore xD

The episode was pretty good :P That part also had me laughing lol. Looking forward to the rest of the series now :)

Waaaai~ Chouhi's hair clip cat is so cute! I might just have to watch this series because of that. It doesn't seem to bad so far.

yay new anime

Boring overused Story [check]
predictable [check]
'moe' childlike loli character with too much power[check]
action that could make me fall asleep [check]
other mentionable aspects: zero [check]
nearly no potential [check]

this anime will be really awesome :rolleyes:
I'll give it one more chance through since it made me laugh one time at that bath scene.

Romance of the Moe Kingdoms?


lol, that thought came to me to. Unfortunately, I didn't like it as much as I hoped to. I'm not expecting the most epic storyline but the comedy and action were really lame.

Oh man, that was bad. There is no way I can bring myself to watch another episode. The animation was okay, but that's where the good times end.

For starters, the voice acting sucked (just do an "eh?!" or ridiculous overreaction every few minutes and that passes as voice acting). I NEVER criticize voice acting, but I really hated the lead's voice. One of the least inspired and most annoying performances I've ever heard.

Second, it just wasn't funny. The chibi scenes didn't work...at all. They just came off as pointless and annoying.

Third, the story was extremely clichéd. When I can guess what'll happen next and it ends up correct 10 minutes into episode 1, then there's a problem.

Finally, the fanservice. The bath scene is one of the single most pointless scenes I have ever seen. It added nothing to character growth and had the typical "Wow, your breasts are big. I wish mine were, too" conversation. Yawn.

I watched all of Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun and hated it, so there's no f*cking way I am sticking with this. It was bad, just bad. I can't even fathom the thought of sitting through another episode.

Dropped.

this is MUCH less ecchi than Goshuushou-sama believe me....second episode basically had minimum fanservice
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I'm about to watch episode 1 and I've been trying to get more information about this series (even tho I might get some by just watching the episode I thought I'd not lose anything asking).

Is it me or all the characters in this series are girls? Not a single guy? I was reading that the manga is seinen, but whats the point of all girls and not a single guy?

Edit: So I finished watching the episode and, after seeing the ending of it, it does seem that all the main characters are girls...

I actually downloaded this episode by mistake and it ended up being a pleasent surprise. Cute art, cute chibis and cute ED. Voice acting is good.

It was a really fun watch, looks like this is a keeper.

I like it. I really like the character designs and I'm really glad the fanservice isn't a large part of the show, like I was afraid of. I'll continue to watch if not just for the animation.

Just watched ep 1 from Menclave, it's alittle beter then I expected but I don't think it's gonna be a superb anyone. Probably 7/10 from begin till end.

Oh and I love the cat thingy on Rin Rin's hair <3

Anyone else think about Ikkitousen when you saw the dragonhead blade and then hearing the girls name is Kanu??

...i dont know but it feels like it's trying to run off the success that is Ikkitousen. This feels like the Loli/Ecchi version of Ikkitousen. And they're doing their own take on the Three Kingdoms Theme. We'll find out if thats a good or bad thing. So far im enjoying it ^_^


...kinda hard buying the fact that Kanu was getting pwnd by a loli. But i did like how they did the time progression thing and the best selling point of the show...

THE BOUNCING BALL on the karoke!! Mad props to SRN for bringing back the Bouncing ball.

It looks good to me, IMO. lots of cute characters. The storyline is not bad to me. I don't think I will dropping this series any time. Even if it have heavy fanservice, I don't mind about that.

"Let's pee on her".
xD

For such a meaningless battle, that was pretty awesome.
I wasn't expecting someone who liked to play bandit to be so tough!
Badass loli is badass.

Well, this show just about has everything.
Gross humor(from girls no less, which makes it better)
Tough kickass females.
Tough kickass loli females.
Moe art.
Ecchi.

Yes, this pretty much has everything. I can tell I'm going to like this show.

I actually had a good laugh at that part :D

I'm somewhat an Ikkitousen fan (and at the same time I don't no sheep about chinese literature, and i'm having a hard time keeping up with the names), so I guess i'll give this show a try.

I didn't like Kanu's seiyuu and - as Wasted_Life had put it - the fact that she was pwned by the loli. Kanu is wtf invincible, you hear me?!

I finally decided to watch this anime. First episode was ok, it's a bit surprising to heard the names, when you're familiar with Ikkitousen ^^

Nothing really fantastic at the moment, but it's still worht watching.

Having not been exposed to any of the Koihime Musou source material that they based the anime off of, I came in not knowing what to expect. And I got yet another anime based off of the same classic Chinese literature.

PROS: The generally light and warm art style and color choice will be welcomed by fans of similar series. The fight scene between Lin Lin/Rin Rin and Kan'u is choreographed surprisingly well and has me looking forward to seeing more fights. The weapon designs are very good, and the costume designs for the major characters that we have seen are not bad. Though something feels a little off about RinRin's voice acting, the voice acting in general is above average. The music fits the mood well, but is not too memorable. Though there is a bath scene and a few mildly perverted things here and there, it is far from being over-played. The animation quality is acceptable, though far from the best I've seen.

CONS: My major gripe here is the story. Granted that this is the introduction episode, the plot was extremely predictable. I am not interested in the plot at all. It is generic, bland, and underwhelming. The characters themselves seem to fit well into over-used character archetypes, especially RinRin. The fact that they gavethe two lead characters almost identical background stories makes it feel like the writers were just lazy. I sincerely hope that they delve deeper into the back story of each of them to hopefully make them unique from one another.

Kinda reminds me about Queen's Blade: Gyokuza wo Tsugu Mono, strong female characters with mains that wants to change the world for the good by gathering friends. That is what the first impression I get of ep 1 of Koihime.

The start of a nice journey! Pretty interesting start I must say, some nice characters and slight fanservice already together with a good portion of action and slight backstory! Well let's see what this anime has to offer us!

I liked this show, but I thought Rinrin was way more cool then the main character. The main character didn't really stand out much if you ask me and she to damn gullible and takes order to much.

Anyways i'll think i'll watch all 3 season and see how it goes. Think I've seen 2 out of the 3 once before, but can't really remember much.

Favorite Character: Rinrin

Technically didn't think Rinrin lost that battle and crying has nothing to do with wining or losing. Rinrin could have beaten her silly by the look of things. Loli fighting girl kicks ass and does it well too.

Watching the fight seemed a little lame and the fact Kan'u. One I felt Kan'u was a little to strong if she could have kept up with Rin rin/lin lin. I feel that Kan'u should have gotten hit in the stomach chest someplace as long as it wasn't the blade itself. She should have came out of that fight with some broken ribs or bones it would made the fight that much better. So I think they could have either made Rin rin stronger, Kanu weaker, or three make Rin rin have two strong points (raw power and skill). The fight was okay, but i seen better at least let them get cut up some or have broken ribs would have made the battle that much better.

I guess i just wanted to see the Kanu get beat up badly so that way she'd get stronger after. the fight was okay, but way to much guarding her attacks kanu is lame. Also i think Kanu pole should have shattered or broke in half sense Kanu said she has more raw power. The real stupid one here is Kanu who is actually going to beat up and fight little kids seriously. Rin rin should have won this hands down if you ask me then again I don't care to much for Kanu.

Funny--you and I seem to be just about the only people watching this eight-year-old show in 2016.

I like Rin Rin, too.

Wait, there are 3 seasons? Now I'm having second thoughts about watching this....

Yeah there is 3 seasons... yeah although I wish Rinrin got stronger then all of them... I plan to do my own fan fiction of Rinrin as the main character still thinking of chapters at the moment. The title of it is The Solar Phoenix Grandmaster. I won't say to much about the story, but if i can do it right it will be awesome. Also it's the very first fan fiction with her which is why i'm doing it as I felt bad that there wasn't one yet haha...

Although I'm still curious I know it says she uses a spear, but what is the name of that weapon anyways. It seems to either be a chinese weapon or something. Think it's similar to Soul Calibur Seong Mi-Na so maybe it's a Naginata weapon then again I do not know. If anyone knows the weapon name that Rinrin uses that would help.

I tried to do some research, but I can't find anything definitive. I'd be curious to know what type of spear Rin Rin uses, too.

that trap, first one was diversion & second was the real trap lol

so i guess its all female Harem considering OP & EP1 she will pick up awry girl warrior she meets on the road, in that case it should really have 20EP-26EP
MC/Unchou picking up girls to her team & i heard there is romance hints so add hints to it & it becomes harem
