The story is average, but the anime is worth the money

"The story basically revolves around 6 dominant school in and around Tokyo, Japan, where gangs and stables rule schools and battle each other to prove who's the king of it all. Pretty imaginative and a pop-cult adolecent fantasy if you think about it, but then again, there's a twist - they all have avatars that once belonged to legendary warriors in the Sangokushi era. The avatars give them each unique powers and fighting abilites.
Ikki Tousen - Battle Vixen is about a girl called Sonsaku Hakufu who transfers into one of the 6 dominant academies and quickly sparks unwanted trouble with her untamed power. She just so happens to be the most powerful fighter while at the same time being the most dense. She battles against some of the academies' top fighters, eventually forming an unlikely friendship with the Big 4 - a foursome of powerful fighters residing in the academy she's in - and uses her avatar to battle "evil" and perverts. There's tons of colorful characters and the episodes are mostly containing flashbacks to illurstrate the characters further.
Whether or not the show will pick up for another series is bewildering, but what you have here is a mild story anime with plenty of sexual refrences and the most unlikely protagonist in anime history. It's worth recommending if you're a fan of shows like Full Metal Panic/Fummofu/Alchemist and Gantz. Overall, this anime is entertaining and basic. It's no Cowboy Beebop or Ghost in the Shell, but if you're looking for teenage humor and martial arts, purchase this product."
An Anime with Little Purpose

"This anime's plot seems to be lost somewhere in the background. I found it to be providing humour. If you enjoy counting the number of times you are tempted with female underwear exposure. Then this anime is for you.
If you are looking for quality of plot. Then this anime is not for you. The plot seems to be some adaptation of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms set in some city in Japan. Basically, 'du wa?' You can follow it easily, but it seems to be silly."

Fan-Service Fighting Anime Near Hentai Extreme

"I cant's say this is the worst anime but I have to say it's definitely not
a good one the story is basically about five high schools fighting for control of the other schools and their students there is so much pantie shots
and a bunch of topless scenes and even some sex scenes they don't show the act itself but one nude girl one boy making out with her and the background and sound is enough to tell you whats happening yes there are fight scenes in here some pretty good but all in all not worth it to continue to watch the end of the series even if it's only thirteen episodes.I like fighting anime and attractive anime girls but there is only so much stupid fan-service you can take and this series has reached that limit.I did not want to buy an adult anime dvd but with this collection I feel I have really not worth it
