    Good battle royale anime
    Premise is simple, an empty city, twelve (juni) warriors that correspond to the 12 Chinese zodiac animals, and each ha some sort of special strength. Last one alive wins a grail that grants one wish.

    to get it out of the way, The Bad: who dies in each episode is kind of predictable.

    however, The Good: great character designs, good action, back stories for the fighters, fun battles between ...

    Don't watch, waste of anime - Juni Taisen is that bad.
    My issue with this anime is not what most took issue with: building up a cool backstory and character and killing them after their flashback backstory. I understood the structure of the episodes, and while its lazy, I'm okay with it. What I hated is the pitiful excuse to wrap-up a good idea into a dreadfully horrible ending with "normal high school boy that just wants a girl friend", and leaving ...

    It had the potential to be something great
    The concept is very interesting and I like that it doesn't have a "main character" to follow so you have no idea who's going to win. I also like that each episode shows the background to a different character so you can get to know the whole cast and no one gets left out which is great

    Good anime, No plot.
    Kinda wished there was more backstory to each character, to make you feel invested in the characters more. But I will say this anime still made me yell at my computer saying why did they have to die. Its like i was watching Game of Thrones but in a more shorter to the point kinda show.

  • Totally worth watching
    Even while the events in the show are predictable, every episode is exciting!
    The music is awesome and gives you the creeps at the best times possible.
    I loved the character introspections and the variety of backgrounds they had.
    I just wish it was longer.

  • only last ep caught me
    only the last episode was truly the one that made my eyes widen and caught my interest. a friend of mine recommended me this anime and every episode i wondered why in the hell would he recommend me this awful anime. when the very last episode started to unravel i thought omg maybe this is why!! but honestly once i learned everything i still didnt feel like that 11 episode journey was worth the ...

  • This show has an experimental design that works to its favor
    This show has a somewhat experimental structure - in kind of the same way that the blair witch project had an experimental structure (but not as dramatic). Its the way that they execute character development. Im trying to avoid spoilers as much as possible. But i really like how they designed it. Its actually somewhat artistic in a sense.

    Casual Weeb Reviews:Juni Taisen Zodiac War
    I'm going to start this review by disclaiming that the anime I personally like to watch is geared towards plot and less filler. In no ways am I saying that "slice of life" animes or other causal story animations are bad. Simply put I enjoy developed stories with less emphasis on the Japanese cliches that permeate some. Only my opinion please don't be mean :(

    Now to the review. ...

  • Looks can be deceiving
    I don’t want to bad mouth the anime because there were parts I truly enjoyed about this anime. If you are like me and thought you were getting great fights and a mystery and was interested by that I would say walk away. This anime pretends to be something for the first half. It’s fast paced and gets you thinking who could die next but after the second half you know what’s going to happen.

    This ...

  • "Meh" sums up this anime well...
    I think many other reviewers have the right idea on this anime. It's not terrible...but it just seems like they could of did so much more with it. The concepts are nice, in that each zodiac has their own warrior, with their own power, in a battle royale. The backstories I think are its saving grace. Some animes need more backstories like this one does for the characters. But...that's about as far ...
