  • Diet Coke Fate which suffers from "Flashback EVERYTHING ALL THE TIME" syndrome
    Juni Taisen is a "Battle Royale" styled show with acceptable animation which decides to commit the grave sin of breaking its own rules and then drowning the viewer in non-stop flashbacks which devour the vast majority of every episode.

    The comparisons to any given entry in the Fate Stay Night series are probably the best way to communicate what this show is (or rather, fails to be). Like Fate, ...

  • Insultingly bad. It failed in everything that makes an anime an anime.
    Where do I begin? I know a lot of people criticize the 3 episode rule for being misleading and to those people I point to this anime. The first 3 episodes are great! And that is what annoys me, the animation is fantastic particularly the fight scenes which are fluid and involve amazing choreography. The pacing of the narrative is fast and quickly establishes that no one is safe and this works... ...

  • I'd give it 3 if they didn't lose budget midway through
    Honestly, this show's decent. It's campy, predictable, and edgy beyond belief but I liked its premise enough to keep on watching up till now (ep 10). Sadly, I'm pretty sure it's safe to assume it won't be delivering what was promised throughout the first 3 episodes.

    The writers could've fleshed out the world more, showing us why the juni taisen are being held, by whom and

    Review at 10 episodes - good for unexpected reasons
    tl;dr: Best thing about the show is that it's a commentary on war, and avoids the cliche of having a single flawless mc to root for. It's also fun to watch because it doesn't take itself too seriously or get preachy. Marathon when you want a fun bloodbath anime that isn't annoyingly cliched.

    I read a review of it recently that talked about how the show tries to show the unglorified side ...

    Watch the first two and last two episodes and your fine.
    I like anime like this typically I thought the first death was anticlimactic but it was a change from what were used to. I could see it coming a mile away but was still slightly surprised. The second episode was decent to. Then it just went further and further downhill.

    To put this into perspective I've cared so little about the characters I've just started skipping backstories because they are ...

    Series in summery it's waste of time
    This is definitely one of the single most pointless anime i have ever had to misfortune to watch, easily earns a 2/10, the characters don't lack depth but the neither does the setting but what this show lacks is narrative, focus and something to invest in and the concept of this show is silly because the develop a character then kill them thus leaving you with nothing.. actually nothing the ...

  • Somebody please recut this show into a movie.
    Skipping all the backstory you miss next to nothing, the whole show can be watched in under an hour. If someone took this whole show into adobe premiere, cut out all the backstories, and recut the episodes to cut between different characters chronologically, this would actually be pretty good. Not great, the animation and voice acting take a big nosedive halfway through, but at least the story ...
