Review: Ikkitousen


Plot Summary: Seven schools are constantly ‘at war’ with each other, and the students within – both male and female – have become skilled fighters and constantly battle with rival schools. Their lives and fates are guided by strange jewels that contain the spirits and destinies of warriors from the Sangokushi period. One girl, Sonsaku Hakufu, has recently moved to Japan and is apparently destined to unite the schools as her counterpart united seven countries long ago. But, like all heroes, there is a darker side to her fate, and as always there is a constant struggle by those around her to break the chains of their own destinies and make their own lives.

At first I wasnt sure how this anime was going to be and I do like the type of fighting and this probably has an interesting story line. It seems that these highschool student’s lives are predetermined by the “Magatama” or soulstones that they carry and which schools they are affiliated with. Its an interesting story line that every student in these schools is a certain type of fighter, and the clumsy Hakufu is the supposed to be King of these fighters and she will rule over her domain. This fighting anime is filled with comedy, nudity, and a lot of action. Its funny how when fighting these girls strategically keep ripping articles of clothing while fighting for their honor. Overall this anime is pretty funny with all the comedy going through it but its for a mature audience and they do a lot fanfare to the semi-nude scenes, but that aside the fighting is pretty good and the action is entertaining.
