Senyuu 2

I still don’t understand why there’s another season of this? Even I must admit that it wasn’t too bad for an anime short, but I wouldn’t have bothered with a second season to be very honest. In fact, I haven’t even finished watching the first season yet.

Senyuu 2The artwork is still the same. It’s like they drew everything to make you laugh, the scenery included. They really focussed on the comedy and that really shows in the artwork, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The comedy is pretty much the only reason why I find this anime short watchable.

The story… Well… For an anime short I guess it’s a pretty decent story. It’s decent, but not worth mentioning to be honest. It’s the kind of story kids would enjoy, let’s just keep it at that.

I can only imagine people with a wide sense of humour watching this, the rest might not be as interested. Action fans would probably find this too childish and drop it after the second or third episode.

Plot Summary: Long ago, there lived an evil being who reigned over the world through fear, called Satan Rchimedes. He invaded the human world with his many demon underlings, spreading madness and chaos everywhere. One thousand years ago, this menace was sealed by the hero Creation, and peace returned to the world.

Then, one day, a great hole suddenly appeared on the surface of the world, and a vast number of demons appeared. The king discerned that the menace Satan had returned after being sealed away for a thousand years, and decided to send the hero’s descendants to battle him. He found 75 men. As one thousand years had passed, you see, it was difficult to tell who the hero’s descendants were.

So the king declared that he would grant the title of “true hero” and great fortune to the one who defeated Satan, and ordered the new hero, Alba, and his warrior attendant, Ross, on a quest to bring down the evil Satan.

Though he struggles with lesser monsters and is even nearly killed by his partner Ross, Alba’s quest to polish his fighting skills leads him to new places and new meetings that he had never expected. Battles, laughter, and emotional moments enhance this adventure tale of an incompetent hero and a sadistic warrior!
