Brave 10

So it’s finally here, huh? You guys have no idea how much Brave 10 advertisement I’ve seen so far. I really started to wonder about this show, and why it’s advertised so much.

I saw the first episode pop up so I decided to check it out. I admit, I was entertained throughout the whole episode, but it wasn’t anything special. It resembles Naruto a little bit, you know, with all those techniques and such.

I have no complaints about the artwork, as they’ve been very thorough from the looks of it. I noticed that they’ve focused on little details, like wounds and torn clothing, so that earns some extra points. Still, it’s nothing special.

The story doesn’t seem all that unique though. It’s actually pretty cliché if you ask me. A young woman crosses paths with a young warrior, only to be rescued by him. Sure, there’s a lot more to it, but the foundations are pretty much done by many other shows. Still, it’s too early to say that this show has no original story, because we might just be in for a wild ride.

So it turned out to be a pretty ‘normal’ show, despite all that advertisement. I do recommend it to all action fans though. It’s not a bad show, it definitely has its moments, but you have to like this sort of thing.

Plot Summary: A year before the battle of Sekigahara that ended the Sengoku Period, the ninja Saizou Kirigakure meets the miko Nami Isa as she’s attacked by assassins. Her shrine was destroyed by Tokugawa Ieyasu for siding with Yukimura Sanada. Meanwhile, Sanada has been gathering ten warriors known as Sanada’s Brave 10, who have the power to change history. As they gather one by one, Nami’s own mysterious power awakens.
