Errr I wouldn't say it'd be like Hanamaru.... Considering Senjyushi is by Marvelous like Senbura, then the expectations may be like that :x or more so along the lines of Katsugeki for TouRabu (but then again i haven't watched Katsugeki yet)


I think you are misunderstanding my comparisons, lol. When I read the synopsis the first thing I thought was Touken Ranbu with guns that's, doesn't matter what the gamplaye is like. Next I meant for it to have a good story like Hanamaru does and not a shit one like SNB, lol. If there is more action it doesn't matter as long as it's entertaining.

Actually, the game play is more along the lines of Senbura (Sengoku Night Blood) and they're run by the same company, Marvelous. But yea, in a way it's like TouRabu :)


I see. Well I hope it's a good anime like Hanamaru was and not lame like Sengoku Night Blood

And another smartphone game ... but wait this one's different.

The art doesn't look half bad, I'm impressed. It's a mobage anime, but it's still historical so I'll give it a shot.

Welp, more game adaptions at my stock Lol.

But this is actually something I'll watch for just my entertainment dosages.

The staff is actually good too so I'm actually happy about this for some reason xP
