Shallow and lackluster bloodfest
20 December 2018 | by mmx-11252See all my reviews

I'll be direct here as I couldn't be bothered to get into details. If you like blood and gore, there's plenty in this anime. If you're looking for a good fighting anime, look elsewhere. The first five episodes consist of the five antagonists waving their power stick around killing a bunch of unnamed random side characters, and a few named side characters that's just there to donate some blood and to proof how powerful the antagonists are. And a lot of the stunt pulled by the character is just downright impossible which shows that the author is just pulling all this nonsense out of his rear-end without any prior research. Not to mention terrible pacing. I'm about halfway through but finishing this anime in one sitting is like going under brain lobotomy. I'll finish the rest later but I doubt it'll get any better.

As I understand it, Kengan Ashura is going anime. I've finished the comics, and if the anime is anything like the comics it'll be that much better compare to Baki.
