LIKENESS SCALE:❤❤❤❤(4.5 hearts)


This is my first anime for the year 2017. The anime was adopted from a video game. The characters of this anime are historical swords reincarnated or depicted as young men.They defeat evil forces which want to change the Japan’s history. The story also gives the viewer a glimpse of Japan’s feudal war. Different characters are being introduced per episode. I think that there are 50 or less different swords characters in the show, hence, there are 50 different kinds of young men in the series. The number of characters is a lot. All the different types of men are present from loli type. megane, brawny, mischievous, bishounen to the insensitive ones. I believe that every female would have a bias in the series due to . I definitely have one and its Kiyomitsu Kashū (even if he looks like a girl). I just like his indifferent attitude but its apparent that he really does care a lot.


I gave this anime a 4.5 hearts because I think that this anime could have a more stable story line. However, I think that it is not possible because this anime is composed of stories from the Hanamaru days. I hope that the second season would give the characters more depth. I will be watching the second for this anime because I am really curious about the other characters aside from Kiyomitsu Kashū and Yasusada Yamatonokami. On a positive note, the quality of animation was superb, its characters had a loving brotherly relationship and I really am attracted to Kiyomitsu Kashū even if he loves painting his nails red (hahaha).
