What is up people? BlackStar here and welcome to this week's anime review! How is everyone today? I'm doing just fine, seeing that I had to watch this for you guys today. Eh, you'll see why I'm happy. So, this week, I'll be review Senran Kagura, an anime that makes you rethink the way of the ninja. It litterally says that in the show. I'll be review this anime and giving it a grade based on it's story, animation, character designs, soundtrack, the conclusion, and my own personal enjoyment! There are A LOT of characters in this anime, so I won't be able to go over all of them. Just a few really. So, let's get started!
Now, let me just get one thing clear. You see, Senran Kagura is a strange anime. Not strange as in the anime itself, but how the anime came to be. Like most anime, Senran Kagura started out as a manga, which was then turned in a video game (Senran Kagura Burst) and then an anime. Yeah, it's a bit strange. Anyway, let's get started!
Our story begins with Asuka (whose last name is unknown), a 16 year old ninja in training who is sailing to Hanjo Academy to become the best that she can possibly be. Of course, seeing that she just barely passed her entrance exam, Asuka's training isn't going to be an easy road to travel on. (Then again, with this being an anime and all, everything just works out IN SOME FREAKING WAY.) Upon arrival, Asuka joins up with her other students, who are also her best friends, in at the beginning of the school year at the school. (If you want to learn more about them, click here.)
But that's when disaster strikes on Hanjo Academy when the evil ninjas of Hebijo Clandestine Girls' Academy steal the sacred Yang Scroll of Power from Hanjo Academy and it's up to Asuka and the good ninjas to take it back! (That's as far into the plot I can get because that's the entire thing. I'm not lying. It seriously is.)
enough of this bull crap! on to the evaluation!
