    A Gun Shooting Blanks
    The art style is very nice, the premise is interesting, the setup for each character is great...

    But then they die and that's that.

    With the Ox sure that was a interesting twist, setup what could be a main character but have them killed off to increase the tension. It's great when it happens once or twice.

    But this is all this show is, give an interesting backstory for the character of ...

    Enjoyable, but showing too much of it's hand.
    Up to episode 3, Juni Taisen offers a somewhat predictable take on the battle royale format that manages to be fun and engaging...so far. While the somewhat rough art lends itself to some great animation, the show's greatest weakness is its format and pacing. Each episode takes the perspective of a new character, and unfortunately whoever put together the ED thought it'd be a great idea to spoil ...

  • Good fight, bad ending
    The fight was great having talented ones, pacifists, a psycho, and so much more have a grueling battle in a place where there are no distracting people around. It's just that the ending let me down, making fools out of the characters who died for nothing. But, I'm still giving this a 5-star to raise it's average.
    I'm also looking forward for a season 2, and I hope it will improve more.

  • It was somewhat interesting
    I find that this anime series to be kinda interesting. Although the concept is not unique in any way because it is basically a free-for-all or battle royal. I think that this series was kinda clever with it's way with eliminating the characters (but if you know the Chinese Zodiac then it is not that big of a shocker). However, this series does follow a pattern of showing a character's backstory, ...

  • Battle Royal/Philosophical War.
    I can certainly say that watching Juni Taisen, I wasn't expecting that great an evolution. To say the least I was impressed.

    The story had its own quirkiness but wasn't bad at all. In my POV nearly all battles had interesting outcomes.
    What I really liked about the show was it's unique approach to battles. Someone looking for an action battle series might argue that but as for me, the battles ...

  • Decent Idea, Poor Execution
    This show does almost everything in it's power to make itself unlikable. The introduction to the idea is poor, you're given no attachment to any characters until 80% of the way through the show, and there is no such thing as character development beyond introduction except in the case of maybe two or three. The show redeems itself with actual near-interesting and developing story for the last ...

  • Good and Disappointing at the Same Time
    It just wasn't the same after the first episode. I was actually hoping we'd follow around the Boar, she seemed like a really interesting character. The series had sort of a set potential (idk how to explain it). There wasn't much thought for it, it was just... the way it is.

    WATCH SOMETHING ELSE
    You will be disappointed by these cool looking characters for the lack of story content how much they repeat themselves to REALLLLLY drive that moral/lesson across like you're a five year old learning how to say a new word. Im not into it, but the only wow factor was that a man was wearing high-heels. Super.

  • This is such an amazing show!!!
    i know a lot of people are giving this a poor rating, but they are the same people that touch stuff when told its hot, or are the reasons for putting caution labels on everything.

    this show has a downside, its like the hunger games or a battle royal, know this from the start you might like one of the Fighters more then another, but not all can survive, so take that with a grain of salt and ...
