I stand corrected. Thank you. I kept thinking she bit the dust along with her father.

Death can be flexible in this series, though. Historically, Ujiyasu is long gone by the time the Toyotomi lay siege to Odawara, and his asshat son, Ujimasa, is the one who gets taken down. (In Sengoku Basara, Ujimasa is portrayed as an old man.)

I quite enjoyed this. I recognised a lot of the characters from my days of playing Kessen & the original Samurai Warriors on PS2. Although I do remember something about a Sanada family member being murdered to please Tokugawa, which I might add, ultimately failed. So seeing one of the Sanada brothers allying themselves with Tokugawa is confusing me.

I definitely enjoyed it! I don't play the games, but I only got interested in it because
one: it includes Samurais
two: Daisuke Ono voices for one of the main characters.

Definitely looking forward to the rest of the season. I do wish it was more bloody
and gory.

Should I go ahead and watch Samurai Warriors even though I know how its gonna end? Knowing whats gonna happen to your two favorite characters is kind of a buzz kill.

Another solid episode. The little bits of transition with our main characters' flashbacks also makes this more interesting just so we get to know them more.

Good episode. And somehow seems like history is already repeating itself and they don't even know it.

The character design are from Samurai Warrior 4 , I think I have the earlier game somewhere for my PS3 , I tried playing it but my Yukimura keeps dying

But I am always fascinated about the Warring Era of Japan . THe video games such as Basara was during th time of Oda Nobunaga and then this one is about after Toyotomi Hideyoshi died.

I love all the anime adaptation of the different manga about this historical time period , especially the recent one Nobunaga Concerto. Wherein Hideyoshi Hashiba later on Toyotomi was not a nice guy

Although in the books he did unify most of Japan after fighting to be Oda's succesor whose death in 1582. He got from the Oda's retainer Niwa, KanaMôri, Ikeda, Maeda and the his own such as shida Mitsunari, Kuroda Kanbei, Hori Hidemasa .His sadness was his son passed away and finally had an Hideyori who was only 5 years old. His death in 1598 caused abit of problem because the heir was too young and his strongest ally Maeda died the following year and in 2 years the council has been broken at the same time becuase of the war against or invasion of Korea, it weaken the family who was loyal to Toyotomi and gave Tokugawa the upper hand and ended the the Toyotomi clan and its followers.

Quiet sad the warring era was , an end of the a family a linieage.

And Samurai Warrior is about the Sanada brothers, the older went to Tokugawa by order of his father and the younger stayed with the Toyotomi, Yukimura was about 33 at that time. , the fated Toyotomi clan.The brothers are split inorder to preserve the lineage of the family but they fought for 15 years.

Anyone who knows how it ends will know how the story of the Sanada brothers in this anime.

I wished I knew about Sanada when I went to Osaka.The fated place is marked by a statue on the precincts of the Yasui Shrine located to the west of Shitennoji Temple in Osaka.1567-1615.He was 48.

I'm also liking this Anime a lot it's going to be very interesting seeing Yukimura and Noboyuki fighting each other.

Episode 3


Good episode overall. Loved the way they described the Sanada siblings including their past. Yukimura's strategy was almost flawless tbh and he has his brother to thank for that.

I also just love the way the battle was done with the coordinated scenes. The episode ends in a cliffhangerish ending but overall was fairly well done.

They're really pushing the war gimmick in this series but I still like it overall. Decent emotional appeal to the latest episode as well.

Another episode is up now...

And a lot of buildup. Really wonder what Yukimura 's fate will be like at this rate. This series has somewhat of an odd pacing but I think it will pick up itself fairly soon.
