Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Bride

I cannot believe that this got another season. I always thought it was an interesting piece, but most certainly not good enough to make another season of it. I would’ve used that for better shows, shows that simply deserve another season from the moment the first episode finished airing.

Hyakka Ryouran Samurai BrideSo yeah, it got another season somehow, and I’m blaming the artwork for that. I admit that I followed the first season till the very end. I also admit that I was amused during every episode. Then again, I’m kind of a pervert that likes a little ecchi here and there. Besides, I like the artwork. It’s very interesting and refreshing.

The story is the only reason why I speak negatively about this anime. It’s just not that good. In fact, it’s boring at times. Take the first episode; they changed their dojo into a maid café. So much for accuracy, because maid cafés didn’t even exist in that era.

Go ahead and watch it if you like strange artwork and ecchi scenes, but don’t bother if you don’t like these types of stories. They are trying their very best to squeeze out a laugh or two, that’s for sure.

Plot Summary: The story takes place in Japan in the early 21st century, in an alternate reality where the Tokugawa Shogunate has remained in power. In this reality, student councils are tasked with oppressing schools. Yagyuu Muneakira is a high school student who rebels against his student council with the help of girls who’ve had the names of famous samurai heroes passed on to them.
