Alright guys! It’s been one heck of a ride reviewing this series for Anime REvisited that you already know as Hyakka Ryoran: Samurai Girls. The final two episodes are pretty much parts 1 and 2 for the final showdown against Gisen; as part one flashes back to the day when Yoshihiko met Nia for the first time back in Paris, and the events that led up to her being the ‘Patient Zero’ of his artificial master samurai army. Midway through the 11th episode Gisen makes her move as she plans on resurrecting her general Amakusa, and pretty much wrecking Great Japan’s shit-zu. Also in the 11th episode Inner Jubei mentions to her other self that if she kisses Muneakira one more time, her ‘incomplete’ self will cease to exist. Although hesitant about the situation at hand, Great Japan as well as the dojo and the academy are in grave danger.
In the final episode Muneakira along with Inner Jubei, Princess Sen, and Sanada are on a rooftop as they see the destruction happening at the hands of Gisen before their very eyes. They devise a plan of attack as they take on the gigantic sickly-looking greenish tentacles popping up from the ground, while trying to break through Gisen’s force field. Inner Jubei does so, as she and Gisen go at it. We’re not sure why Gisen wanted to pull a ‘Majin Buu’ and try to absorb Jubei in order to make herself more powerful, but it might have to do with the fact that she wants to destroy what Jubei is trying to protect; which is not just Great Japan, but her friends as well. Jubei and Gisen battle it out and much like the final boss of an RPG who’s down to its last bar of health; Gisen went into ‘rage mode’ and increased her power even more.
Jubei knew that this would be the last time that she would see her friends and even Muneakira, so after absorbing the feelings of Muneakira, Sen, and Sanada, she went after Gisen full force and sent both her and herself towards the sky – and possibly even towards the edge of space. The speed that they were traveling was similar to the velocity of a space capsule plummeting towards Earth. Gisen was defeated at the cost of Jubei’s life, as the damage left behind was hefty to say the least. At the end of the episode Muneakira thought it was time to leave the dojo…but something happened. A bright light appeared in the form of a girl, and that girl was Jubei Yagyu. Somehow she was revived after the battle with Gisen, but if that’s the case, then there’s a possibility that Gisen may still be alive…
This was a pretty interesting series to review. Sure, there was a bit more fanservice than there needed to be, and some of the plot points might have been slightly questionable. Nevertheless this series also has a second season which I’ll be reviewing on another month sometime this year. (It could be May or June, who knows.) Well guys, this will do it for Anime REvisited for now, but we’ll keep you updated on all of the other awesome content we’ve got cooked up! Until next post, thanks for the love and stay nerdy! 😉
