Samurai, Girls, Harem and tons of boobies: Hyakka Ryouran

Good evening~ Was already planned to write this but look at the time… Imma try to write this properly but also save time.

Originated from LN, 17 volumes and still ongoing. Anime lasted for 2 seasons of 12 eps, with 2 OVAs.

Storyline feels pretty unique at first. Its slowly degenerates down to a pretty generic, severely ecchi of work. But putting that aside the story is pretty fine, only near the end of both seasons. The rest is just slice of life ecchi moments. The comedy is just… bland, i hardly laugh during the anime but only just minor nosebleeding moments. S1 ending is ok, S2 ending felt a bit better, because there is at least some progression going on. Character development is pretty low, or should i just say its stagnant. The OVA came in as a sequel and fanservice pushed to the limit. They wrapped it up pretty nicely so i wont need anymore material from them.

Art is done by Arms, which also did Isuca and Wizard Barristers. I would say its a one of a kind way to do the animations. The character designs isnt something you see everyday and the frames were pretty fluid. Combat scenes is pretty ok, but not really exceptional. The way they animate this is seriously up to each person to love or hate, its unique but it can get a bit weird to watch.

Music is a mixed bag. Cant really feel it.

VAs is a pretty decent list. Hirakawa Daisuke, Yuki Aoi, Kugimiya Rie, Kotobuki Minako, Akasaki Chinatsu, Toyosaki Aki, Kobayashi Yu, Goto Saori, Sakurai Takehiro, Koshimizu Ami, Mizuhara Kaori, Hikasa Yoko, Tomatsu Haruka, Sato Satomi, Noto Mamiko, Uchida Maaya. All well done.


Story: 6.5/10 (S1), 7/10 (S2), 6/10 (OVA)

Art: 7/10

Music: 7/10 (S1), 6/10 (S2, OVA)

VAs: 8.5/10

Not really recommended unless you just watching for fun, for the sake of it or you want some nosebleeds. Animation is really up to you whether you like it or not, as for me, i would stay neutral, its neither exceptional nor horrible.

Ok im done for the week. See you guys next time.

  1. Why can’t we have a predominate female fighting anime that doesn’t involve giant boobs or them wearing tissue paper for clothes? I would watch that show in an instant
