Based on the action-adventure game franchise created by CAPCOM, known outside Japan as Devil Kings.
In the age of the Warring Countries, Japan was fragmented in semi-independent provinces, governed by feudal lords or daimyo, who confronted each other in an endless struggle for power. Ambitious daimyos from every corner of the Archipelago had shouted their battle cry. Those were days of unrest and chaos. As war spread throughout the country, the map of power underwent rapid and dramatic changes.
In this never-ending conflict, one man finally seemed to be just one step from establishing total control over the country. He was the lord of Owari, the Sixth Heavenly Devil King. His name was Oda Nobunaga. But now, a young general clad in azure makes his unexpected appearance in this confused scenario, heading a huge army of cavalrymen from the Northern provinces. He is known as Date Masamune, the One-Eyed Dragon. And he is coming for Oda Nobunaga’s head, and for ultimate supremacy! (Official Site)
Honestly not bad, and when you consider it's based off a game, and the game is sort of a cheesy retelling of history it makes it so you don't take it too serious. Definitely going to keep up with this series, animation is nice, some character designs are a bit too HG but overall it's fine. Why Capcom didn't hire these people to do the animation for the SFIV movie is beyond me, effing retards.
Booooo. No one else is watching this? The animation and fighting scenes are worth watching it alone.
I do plan to try this out
Schoolwork just gets in the way
I heard it's like the TTGL of this season
Sure, I guess you could say that since it does have some similar elements and qualities.
Ye, I finally caught up on this thing
Oh wow, this show is just overflowing with manliness!
First episode: BAM! You see a guy speaking English in a manly voice.
Yes, English. Not Engrish.
ARE YOU READY GUYS?
PUT YA GUNS ON!
The bromance between Yukimura and his lord is over the top too.
Hmm, so Date is the main character?
I kept thinking it's Yukimura.
This anime didn't seem to do well critically. But the kind of humour (like the bromance as Sasuke facepalms in the background) is the humour that really tickles me. Plus I love anime without much point which are ridiculously over the top and overflowing with manliness. There needs to be more anime like this. ALSO. They got such a great cast of Japanese VA's, just completed it for me.
I agree, this anime is histerical, but it's taking awhile for them to sub it. I started watching this without seeing this thread though. My favorite character is Tadakatsu (spelling?) the freakin cyborg with the giant drill. Only Japan has mechs in their national history.
So historically inaccurate... so... MANLY
tooooooooooooooooooo generic. It's not funny, it's just stupid
