A great story...but.....

"Yep, its a great story...but....it could have been so much more.
If you like the fighting highschool girls in skimpy clothing that gets shredded for no apparent reason, in all the right places, then this is for you. I like the story....legends of 1000 year old fighting masters who are eternally at war with each other....but where and when and why did it start? Why does it continue? And why are all the ancients reincarnated in beautiful highschool age girls? And why the little stone earrings? What about everyone walking around with these crazy weapons? Doesn't anyone out there think it might be a bit odd for a 6 foot tall, half dressed hottie to be walking around with a great big spear? LOL....guess not.
A great story for what it was, but it left me wanting more explanations. Sometimes there needs to be a bit more to the story than exposed flesh and flying fists. You start with a great premise, then it deflates and spins into the typical knock around story....
But I actually liked the story. The artwork was very good as well. Found the set at a very good price, and decided it was worth it to go that route than just buy a single disk in the series. Turns out to be more economical, and actually well worth it. Another of those stories that keeps you occupied when there's nothing else to do and you want a change of pace. Worth the time to get this one. A great addition to any anime collection."

"A good series if you like shameless fanservice, fighting girls, and comedy in your anime, all running amok under a decent plot line. :] Beautiful (unforgetable!) artwork on the separate volume sleeves."
Dunno What To Say About This Anime Really...

"Lets just say this anime's main objective is perversion and its secondary objective is fighting.
The story and plot is definately nothing new and the whole anime is mainly about showing girls ripping their clothes off during fights. It's bloody, but nothing other than just that. Don't watch this for the fight scenes, I think they're very lacking. Again, the biggest objective of this anime is mainly for the pervertic parts, other than that, there's nothing great about this anime. It is neat to watch, but nothing original. Once you see a bunch of similar animes, you've seen them all. Highly predictable storyline.
I mainly watch it because I'm a guy and it gives me a few grins and smirks here and there. I would NOT watch this if it didn't have any of the girl on girl action (there's some sexual scenes btw, m2f and f2f). It's not that I only watch anime because they're pervertic, it's just that this anime's only positive point is that and pretty much only that.
So quality anime? Na.....storyline and plot sucks....that's why I gave it a 3. I would have given it lower had it not entertain me for a bit."
