Review: Sengoku Basara – The Last Tea Party

With the fall of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Japan is once again plunged into chaos as his once subordinate Ishida Mitsunari looks to seek revenge against Date Masamune. Tokugawa Ieyasu however seeks a different path despite having once been under Toyotomi’s forces. Their fates soon intertwine with Sanada Yukimura’s and other warriors across the land. With a new unknown threat looming over the land, all warriors advance to Sekigahara for a final showdown…as a sinister plot unfolds in the background.

The movie to tie up parts of season 1 and season 2, I can never get enough of Sengoku Basara, the characters and story are just too good. And this 90 min movie will get your blood pumping, Ieyasu Tokogawa is trying to unite the Land Of The Rising Sun using bonds and reason, twice it has been burnt & hurt by power to dominate from Nobunaga and Hideyoshi. This time around the Tiger of Kai & Dragon of Oshu are against insane odds, with so many generals on the field it is an epic battle. As the battle takes place the real enemy appears and again all of the generals must unite in this battle to stop the threat against the Land Of The Rising Sun. As I have said it before the animation of this anime is amazing, the movie is just as good as the series, and I love the characters, any anime fan will love this.

Review: Sengoku Basara II

The second season witnesses the emergence of Toyotomi Hideyoshi as the next potential unifier of the land, through only strength and brute force he plans to unify the land of the rising sun. Sanada Yukimura and Date Masamune have their own battles to fight to stop Hideyoshi from destroying Japan.

Just the battle’s from Sengoku Basara pull you in, and the first season this show made me go nuts, it was fantastic. I was hooked from day 1, the animation penmanship was so detailed, the fight scene’s were brutally and powerfully animated and each fight scene was different. After the first series had finished, I waited for a serious amount of time for this second season to arrive. Sengoku Basara Ni, kept everything at a vantage point from its predecessor, the full blitz and blown out battle field wielding all its former glory of hack and slash action was everything I waited for. I’ve watched it to the glorious end, and I truly recommend this for anyone who’s looking for a climatic story with fierce competition, and I’m hoping for another season soon because the story is too good to end here.
