  • A fun watch with a couple of interesting concepts
    To explain the setting a little better, its a little like World War 1.5, Leaning closer to World War 1 but with advanced technology and magic. And with magic we get the concept of the show. The action was also well choreographed and it the show looked good when it wasn't 3-D, but even sometimes it was alright with it. In the character department, it kind of lacks, with likable characters being ...

  • different perspective!
    For my personal opinion, this anime is a masterpiece, something that needs to be seen by, almost, everyone.
    The story is revolutionary, looking at the latest anime (also if it was written in 2013). It deals with and discuss really delicate topics, like religion and war, with a perspective different from the usual one, even making fun of them. a perspective only a few see from.
    The main character ...

    Best war and action anime
    Youjo Senki is an anime of magic and modern warfare sprinkled loosely with a little bit of modified 20th century history from an alternate world, mixed together with an overpowered MC to bring you the ultimate in animated explosions. Enjoy the amazing visuals and dark humor while you follow along with Tanya as she destroys her enemies and fights against destiny and God himself.

  • yes yes yes and yes....
    Evil and indifferent stuck inside cute little girl, how epic of a concept? There were slow parts in the anime and I think some part a little confusing but overall I loved, it...at the end of the day exciting to watch and one of the best animes with "developed" the main character that struggles with good and evil within a military structure. I loved every episode. I am disappointed its over...for ...

  • Way more fun than I expected
    When I heard of this show (partly through hearing the ending theme out of context), I expected it to be about a hyper-nationalistic military officer mowing down ally and enemy alike while racking up achievement after achievement. What I got ended up being completely different.

    Subverts anime tropes? Try "actually hits all the most common anime tropes."
    Transported to another world? Check.
    Super smart and given great ability in that other world? Check.
    Cynical nihilist atheist protagonist? Check.
    Lolita? Check. (Yep, even when they're not sexualized--and don't worry, we have another woman for that job)
    Third Reich aesthetic? Check.
    Military-gasmic level of detail? Check.

    In each episode you'll see this disclaimer:

  • Saga of the Nazi Loli
    In this military and world war-esque anime, a Nazi Loli is faced with the force of Being X, who wants her to have faith in this so called God. Being an atheist, throughout the series she holds a strong grudge against him and refuses to comply, and in turn gets tossed into multiple situations by him where she has the lower hand in order to have her develop a sense of faith. Fantastic animation with ...

  • Entertained and orginal anime - World War
    This is a great piece of work, based on world war one I think, has a very original plot with a lot of action scenes and a philosophical and psychological conflict of the character. Very good animation, music and effects, each episode makes you want to watch the next one, can’t wait for the next season!!!!

  • Simply The Best Anime Ever
    This is one of the best anime ever. I am so looking forward to the film and hopefully a second season as well. Tanya The Evil has become one of my favorite anime's of all time. I am currently reading the first novel and loving it. I read the manga vol 1 as well.

  • The most amazing anime ever
    The anime have left some part of the manga or LT out, but the way they used the characters and plot is extremely nicely executed. I love the way they portrayed the main characters and her/he personality, the Evil and manipulate other characters with her innocent eyes.
