Medieval warfare, hardcore random Engrish, dancing samurai’s, burning feet, Sengoku Basara has a little bit of everything mentioned.
So hell yeah! This would be my very first show to watch this Spring season! I have no idea with this show and how will it impress me yet so this will serve as a First Impressions post more than I start it episodically right away. It’s better that way, I guess. So yeah, the story has a man that can take over an entire army. And of course, the rivals also has his match. Different regions with different fighters face off on which kingdom will reign supreme.

Basara really has every damn funny thing in the bag. From the random Engrish that sounded half-drunk, to cg dancing samurai’s in the OP sequence(so yeah, that’s where I got the title XD). It was really entertaining. Probably the best one was the unending “YUKIMURA!” “OYAKATA-SAMA!” “YUKIMURA!” “OYAKATA-SAMA!…” which blasted my eardrums off.
The background music was also really something that wasn’t really bad. It’s all rock and it really fits the action vibe of the show. Probably the forte of this series would be it’s fighting scenes of course. They’re really worth watching and it’s undeniably good with it’s shounen touch. The pose-off was also funny because it’s so overly used in video games it’s stupid but it’s entertaining. Yeah, it’s based from a game anyway so it does make sense.
Overall, that was really funny. I don’t know if they’re all intentional but whatever, I’ll be continuing this one for the lulz but still unsure if I’ll blog this since I have more shows to prioritize when they start to air (Valkyria Chronicles, Eden of the East, K-On! and maybe Shangri-la).
