  • they change from painted style to CGI and its bad
    they change the animation style half way though the series.
    DON'T WATCH THIS IF YOU CARE ABOUT COHERENT ANIMATION STYLES


    the story is interesting, weather or not to pick a fav ep to ep and see weather the die in the next episode hunger games style. Too much backstory though that honestly doesn't matter for the main fight.

  • Interesting Concept, but...
    I enjoy the idea, but it's so PREDICTABLE!!! I mean if the title of the episode doesn't give it away, you can literally just google the Chinese zodiac and find out who's gonna die next based on that. However, I still like the visuals and the fight scenes...

  • Somehow I can't stop watching
    Juni Taisen is an interesting anime because it has a premise that we have seen more then once, but it has really strong potential. Somehow I can't look away even though it annoys me slightly. It has managed to somehow just kinda fizzle. I think that the back stories, and the characters plotting out their attacks are just to long and there really isn't much fighting. You see parts of the fighting, ...

  • "Back Stories" The anime
    May contain spoilers? Or at least the obvious formula of the show

    Advertised as a battle royale action anime that looked super promising, immediately becomes "tell the back story of a character, then kill them that episode or the next". It's somewhat enjoyable but I feel like they really cut a lot of corners on the action scenes which should have been the selling point of the show. I think the ...

  • A very predictable anime
    Borderline impossible to get attached to any characters because whenever they try to develop the characters they kill them within an episode. Not only are characters dropping like flies with each episode but they are dropping in the order of the zodiac, so we know who's next and who is likely to win. The animation is nice, the op and ed are solid, but the actual story and plot is trash.

  • Sigh while it’s art work is fine the story is formulaic in nature.
    The art work is well done. The order of death is predictable due to simply reversing the Chinese zodiac. The only one off is the snake who technically dies before officially the fighting even begins. If this trend continues only one out come remains and the whole, introduction after the fact splits the fighting, lessons tension, and if formulaic to anime in general. Though I must admit if they ...

  • All the pieces are there but not put together well
    One of the few anime I've seen lately that falls flat due to bad direction and bad storytelling. The show is too "loser of the week" to feel invested into any one character. Its a shame, because the character design, setting design, plot concept , and story universe had a lot of potential.

  • Ok, but predictable.
    Nice gore. The quality is excellent, but so far (chapter 7) kinda predictable. (Not sure if what I'll write can be considered as spoiler , but in case, I marked my comment as if it was)

  • Loving the ultra violence.
    I love this anime. I've never seen anything like it before. It's extra super violent. Characters die off faster than in GoT, and you never know what will happen next. It's incredibly violent with lots of unexpected plot twists. I can't wait to see who dies next.

  • Not My Cup Of Coffee
    It's well-animated, and if you're into Battle-Royale-style series it'll probably be closer to the kind of show you enjoy. The first episode, however, doesn't really do much to draw in people who aren't predisposed to that particular subgenre, from what I've seen. If you enjoy this sort of anime, or you like blood and violence, you'll probably get some enjoyment from this, but I just couldn't get ...
