Review: Ikkitousen Great Gaurdians

Plot Summary: Preparing for the battles to come, tournaments and to fight against new opponents from over the world, Hakufu is working to have enough money to make her dream true. But she doesn’t consider that old and new allies and enemies will come to scene, and also being a weak leader to the eyes of her companions. A sister also appears. She doesn’t even know her mom’s past so better to start from the local stuff before attempting to go worldwide.

Ikkitousen is one of those martial arts Anime that I really enjoy, Great Guardians was the third iteration of this series and I really wasn’t sure to expect. All these students still represent the reincarnations of warrior spirits from the past with predetermined destinies, and who knows how that will come to be. The best part of the was that their was a lot of fighting scenes to go around, with a very complex storyline that unwinds into a simple idea. The only part which I found a little funny, is that this anime series always was skimming the line of nudity but this time around they crossed it and went for somethign that was a little more frisky then usual. Overall I enjoyed the anime and storyline, I just hope this isn’t the end of the Ikkitousen series.
