  • Terrible show, do not waste time
    This show is so bad, I had to do a 1 star review (which I've never done before for any show). I won't spoil it for you but you'll quickly find out exactly who is going to die after on a show or two, the order will not be surprising to you. Also the action is extremely lacking and the characters storylines are very mundane. If you think you can handle getting all the way through the show, you'll ...

  • Interest concept but was terribly written
    This anime had sooo much potential. You like a character then they die. No plot twist at all. It's all predictable and a super cheap short version of game of thrones. Seriously had so much potential but it's a flop. blah blah blah crunchyroll why do you have a minimum word count for reviews? seriously?

  • Interesting at first, but quickly becomes predictable and then boring
    There are some interesting parts of the story, and I like the abilities that they give everyone, which is why I gave it three stars, but if you don't realize who is going to die by the end of the episode you are probably half blind. Also boring ending, you might as well just stop at episode 11, you'll probably be more satisfied that way.

  • i personally liked it
    i personally like this a lot, it might be because i loved every character and then see them die? yeah ..
    it could have been better though, the first episode was amazing! if only they added more story, plot kind of thing to it. would have made an amazing show but then again, this is based off of the ancient chinese folklore. the end is a bit disappointing.

    Just skip this series
    You get a character's backstory and then they die. There is zero tension in any fight once the pattern is revealed by the second episode. The ending is also extremely dull and disappointing. There is no payoff or catharsis. The only novelty to this series is that it made a death tournament dull and unsatisfying.

    Looks can be deceiving - Juni Taisen is a dialogue
    while Juni Taisen appears to be another action show because of its setting in a 12 warrior battle royal, it is actually a deeply philosophical show with its most interesting parts found in the conversations between the partaking warriors. discussions of good and evil are plenty, yet the good characters hardly have the upper hand. everything is presented as a gray area and even the most noble ...

  • A bit of a slow start, but definitely worth it.
    The series does start out a bit slow, but definitely ramps up throughout. I was a bit worried that with so many characters, the show wouldn't have time to develop them and allow you to get to know all of them, but Juni Taisen squeezes an amazing amount of content into its short episode count. While the actual Juni Taisen is cool, and the fights are beautifully animated, this show really shines ...

  • Overall, good story with an ending that goes no where
    In my opinion, a brief fast moving story is better than something that is really dragged out. In that sense, you get that from Juni Taisen. Its a 12-episode series,with an interesting story and characters. With that said, the ending left something to be desired, I really hoped for more there.

    it was ok at first but then lost the will to care ...............
    Thought it was ok I guess. Didn't give much action into all of them fighting each other and didn't explain why that people have to do it. Also it would have been nice to see rat in combat and fight some people.............................................

  • It was okay, I finished it at least.
    I watched the first episode on a whim, and ended up on a challenge to get me to watch 3 episodes. After the 3 episodes, I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue or not. It is a bit out of my genre - I don't watch a lot of gory anime tbh. That didn't stop me though. I was interested to see how it played through. I was disappointed with the ending, and the final episode. I feel like it built up to ...
