Japan, what the hell is up with all the anime shorts this season? Give it a break! We don’t need crummy little stories with very average/poor artwork. Sure, there are one or two exceptions, but the majority sucks (for lack of a better word).

SenyuuI must admit that the artwork isn’t that bad. Ross, one of the main characters, reminds me of another character. I just can’t put my finger on it… My mind was wondering towards Soul Eater, but I’m not sure. Pretty vexing…

Anyway, the story… The end. No, seriously, what is wrong with this story? There’s a huge plot summary about this anime short, yet the story was so boring that it made me jealous of people in a coma. It made me want to sleep for days. They call this comedy? I call it a mistake.

Unfortunately, no. I do not recommend this. Don’t get cocky by watching it anyway, because nobody well benefit from it. Not you. Not me. Nobody. It’ll just be five minutes of your life wasted. Read my Ishida to Asakura post, which tells you what I could do in two minutes. After that, try to imagine what I could do in five minutes.

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!
