    What...did I just watch.
    I wasn't expecting much from this show, but I was completely blown away by how utterly awful this turned out. I don't like or want to review incomplete series, especially at ep. 1, but my goodness! It's my duty to help keep other, unsuspecting anime fans from having 23 minutes of their precious life robbed from them.

    The series is supposed to be about an alternate history where the Meiji ...

    The hyper dry vodka martini of Anime: Fill glass with fanservice. Hold everything else...
    Let's see...
    + Third episode's title is inspired...
    +/- Lot's of fanservice, if you're into that sort of thing.
    - Few redeeming qualities and nonsensical plot, but that's pretty normal in ecchi anime...
    Conclusion
    I don't see why everyone hates this so much. As far as anime goes, this is only the normal sort of bad. Under ordinary circumstances, people would be giving this 4s and 5s ...

    Animation so stiff it looks like a motion comic.
    The drawings may look alright, but the animation is so stiff it looks like a motion comic most of the time, and they shake the camera around a lot to keep if from looking like a total slideshow at times. A good story and good characters can sometimes make up for these shortcomings, but sadly the story is flimsy, it's and characters don't have much substance.

    Panning Still Pictures with Ecchi Undertone...
    Not sure why the animation type they used was selected, but it "feels" like they tried to make this on a very tight budget ... or something. The majority of the scenes is a still picture that they either animate a tiny portion of... or pan around the picture to simulate movement.

    Poor animation aside, it's focus is apparently boobage... err Edo period Mechs. The star of the show, aside from ...

    Had to watch it to believe the negative review
    Review after first episode? Yes, because it's very unlikely that the second one will end up on my playlist. Why? Well probably because I'm not that much into ecchi and, somehow this anime seems so wrong in a lot of ways: animation isn't very good, the script (at least for the first episode) is FAR from good.
    If you'd ask me whether it is watchable or not, I'd say, that it actually is, only I'd ...

    What I really think about Dai-Shogun - Great Revolution?
    Prepare for spoilers because I am basically going to go on and on about what has been shoved down my throat while I watched this. I'll do my very best to keep vulgarity down.

    Let's start off with the story. The story takes place in Japan during the year 1870. This is an alternate version of Japan, because the Meiji Restoration never happened. The foreign black ships that attacked the harbor of ...

    A decent anime, try watching the first two ep. before deciding.
    The anime it self is quite decent. Its definitely not as bad as what some of the people are saying. At least try to stay with the golden rule, and watch 2 ep. before deciding whether or not to drop it. The fight scenes are pretty good, and this isn't just a classic harem scenario, but rather focuses on just two girls, which is at least to me, quite refreshing (instead of a classic 2 guys one girl ...

    well another anime that fell short for 2014 season
    well that was a little boring with the art design a little off and the characters very one dimensional i will say this the anime was very confusing at times. the episode explaining where the main character came from was odd makes you think maybe he not the son of shogute also all the girls are in love with him even through they some are supposed to be in love with someone else. at first it was ...

    This is....not good.
    Punching myself in the face may have yielded a more productive use of 20 minutes. This is seriously one of the greatest abominations in the history of not only anime but television as a whole. The story sucks, the fan service implys that somehow, somewhere, this show actually has a fan base. I hate myself for watching this, so take my advice and don't.

    0.5/10

    Not bad but will make you laugh.
    First off, to everyone rating this a 1 star after just a few episodes... It seems like all of these people came to this anime expecting something else. Yes there is a lot of fan service but to some (including myself) think that fan service is hilarious. This show is the kind of anime that I would watch after a new episode of Hunter x Hunter. Just something funny to bring the mind off of the ...
