Decent fights
4 August 2019 | by ashton-althamSee all my reviews

If you've watched Baki, it's pretty similar. The Negatives - There's breaks between fights to explain so made up technique that usually doesn't make sense. There's a character who basically gawks and is shocked in every scene, which can get annoying. They throw big numbers around to try and make the characters companies seem important. Sometimes they explain things that you can clearly already see with you own eyes.

The pros - Decent choreography in the fights and there seems to be less talking between matches than Baki. Interesting characters once you get past how corny it can be.
