Ikki Tousen: Great Guardians is the most difficult anime series I have ever had the pleasure of reviewing for a number of reasons. The series focusses on a group of young scantly-clad women guided by the spirits of ancient warriors in order to become ultimate martial arts fighters. It should be stated now that this is by no means a complicated plot and it is also incredibly easy to follow. However what makes the series slightly confusing in terms of its quality, is the mixed bag of visual and narrative divergences. By this I am of course referring to the emphasis the show puts on provocative imagery, which can clearly be seen from the DVD’s marketing.

Some characters and storylines within the series’ 12 episode run may cause slight confusion to those »
