    Quick doses of comidy, but rapidly goes stale.
    Senyu is a series about a hero who goes on a quest to defeat the demon king Richimedes who has summoned monsters into the world and restore peace and balance like his ancestor did one thousand years ago. All while racing against the other nine hundred and ninety nine other possible descendants. After all, it can be quite tricky to trace bloodline after a millennia has passed.

    The series is not ...

  • Worth a watch, surprisingly good!
    Watching this anime I was skeptical, I though, this is only a 5 minute per episode anime so it won't be anything special, but much to my surprise its actually really funny. The characters are great and I found them very memorable all in there own unique way, the story is fairly straight forward so there is much to surprise you there but just watching this I couldn't help but laugh, the animation ...

    Podrían haberla hecho mas larga. Falta de presupuesto?
    Esta serie tiene una mezcla de humor negro, sátira y temas adultos. Al principio me emocionó mucho su humor pero enseguida me encontré conque solo dura 5 minutos de los cuales se pierde buen tiempo en la canción del ending. No se cual fué el objetivo de hacerlo asi, pero me dejó un sabor amargo en donde la historia es explotable y los personajes divertidos pero no quisieron hacerlo y al final la ...

  • wacky, crazy, what the heck?
    This is rapid fire comedy. The episodes are around 4min. shorts that throw stuff at you fast. This type of short, rapid fire comedy may not be everyones' cup of tea. But since its short and only 13 episodes, you could potentially be done with the whole series in just over an hour - so its not so bad if you are having a boring afternoon or evening.

  • Senyu DA BAKA - thumbs up
    In my opinion one of the funniest shows. All the the comments rating this show down are about how there wasn't much plot but I was amazed by how much they crammed in 3 mins of video - like a naruto episode compressed - lol. This is a hilarious slapstic comedy 2 thumbs up.

    Short, but hilarious
    I think this might be my favorite anime ever. It's too bad the episodes are so short, because they are incredibly funny. GIve it a chance -- if you really don't like it, at least you won't have wasted lots of time!

    Definately needs to be watched
    You can literally finish this anime in an hour. It's funny on purpose, and it's five minutes...I'm sold. If you've ever watch the old Star Wars: Clone Wars cartoons, then it's just like that, quick and to the point.

    Great for something short and funny to cheer you up.
    I'd like to say that I wish this had longer episodes, but it's shortness seems to actually help it in this case. It's absolutely hilarious. The main character is a pretty good straight man, but the royal soldier is hilarious. Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a laugh.

    Honest fun with SENYU
    I love the way this parodies the Fantasy/Adventure genre by poking at all of its clichés so brilliantly. It pokes at all those elements that've become so done and redone in these kind of stories, and does so with a cold bucket of confettis just to point out the actual ridicule in them. It throws all those usual "wow, how unexpected" or "never saw THAT coming" (sarcasm intended in both) plot ...

    You do realize this is a spoof and it is making fun of common stereo types?
    You know? I read the one star reviews and I wasn't going to watch it because of them. "Hey, I like Gintama,... sounds like I won't like this because it is too stereotypical... I hate that."

    But I am glad I watched it anyway because there is nothing else to watch. 5 minutes investment... and really it gets its point across in short skits... that is why it is 5 minutes. Damn funny and ...
