  • people are expecting the wrong things.
    don't watch if you're expecting action. Lots of back stories. Yeah sure it easy to predict who will die next but after seeing their whole life it gives it meaning when it happens. The show is good. The ending is good. People read way too much into things. just sit back and keep an open mind about what to expect with this unique show.

  • Merciless, even more so beneath the surface.
    Juni Taisen appears on the surface to be a standard action anime - but the divings into backstory of the different warriors and exploration of their philosophical ideas, AND how all this intertwines and influences one another, Juni Taisen becomes a very entertaining blood sport!

    When combat happens the scenes are amazing in regards to animation. The only real downside is that it feels many ...

  • Trials And Tribulations Of The Modern Otaku part 325
    On one hand the “Why do we spend any time getting to know, or explore the backstories of characters who are just gonna die?” complaint will be popular. Also there’s very little world building or explanation. Conversely this show didn’t promise any of that. And it delivered on what it was selling. The characters are unique and diverse, but at the same time characters based on the zodiac (be it ...

  • 100% predictable and wastes all of the character development
    Without spoiling anything, Juni Taisen's premise is quite interesting and would seem to be a Fates knockoff with a twist. However, what Juni Taisen fails to do is develop characters over time making the one we cheer for ambiguous. The character you cheer for in Juni Taisen isn't ambiguous because there are no characters the watcher WANTS to cheer for in the first place. They treat character ...

  • A kind of unique appearance.
    This was little different story telling than that of average. no specific main character, so it was worth watching, but it was that of super interesting nor awesome series. it was just... average. The plot was decent thought and effects/fights were decent.

    My favorite anime!!!
    I'm just a person who like crazy stuff and this anime seems crazy enough. Many people said that it is predictable but I think it just intentionally predictable. I love the characters and their abilities, and there are some surprise plot to me. Some parts I don't like is the backstories are too long and the ending is quite.. boring. But overall, I enjoyed it a lot!

    Should be 4 stars but I’m giving 5 and here is why
    I personally like to take my time with an anime and get invested and buckle up for a loooooooong anime series. This isn’t that, 12 episodes and out. I always wish anime are longer because I get sad when something I enjoy ends... we all know the feeling. It’s a breath of fresh air to have Juni because I get fantastic animation, amazing artwork, and an amazing story. THE THING LACKING WAS EXECUTION, ...

  • Who Doesn't Like a Battle Royale?
    Personally, I am just in love with plot lines which involve a free for all where one individual has to stay alive no matter what. It was a great idea to use the zodiac signs as the characters of this anime. I enjoyed the whole anime, even though it became less suspenseful towards the end. I do not know how to explain it... even though I didn't approve of the ending, I still love this anime.

  • More and less of what you really hope for.
    If your looking for something that isnt just like everything else out there, thats short and wraps it self up in 12 episodes, then you might like this. If you want depth and characters to fall in love with and hope to grow up with them, then you might want to find something else to watch. I liked this mainly because its short and simple. The action scenes were short, but cool. Really cool ...

  • It had potential but became a total let down..
    When I had first heard about this anime, I was really interested and intrigued considering that it had a very unique concept and of course I liked the whole idea of having Chinese zodiac's fighting each other. To my dismay, this anime turned out to be a huge disappointment. Nonetheless, I still had a good time watching it. Here are some pros and cons for this anime that my girlfriend and I thought ...
