The first episode of Sengoku Basara is probably the most manly and fucking awesome first episode of anime ever. I don’t even know where to begin – my fucking beard grew longer while watching it. My fucking balls grew. I felt like I should have had a beer and a porn mag or something while watching it. Basically, Production IG decided to pretend to be GAINAX and produced some insanely over-the-top, totally fun-loving samurai action. It’s purposefully cheesy, throws back to all kinds of chanbara film techniques and fights so insane it’s hard to believe the characters aren’t in mechs. Fucking Date Masamune rides his horse with ARMS CROSSED and WIELDS THREE SWORDS AT ONCE — PER HAND
But lets not forget the main reason to watching this, NORIO WAKAMOTO AS FUCKING ODA NOBUNAGA. I loved the game, I love the show, will watch all eps at least twice. There is nothing negative I can say about this ep – it was astonish-mazing. Will do a more through post when Shinsen drops the first sub.
Almost forgot, op is a pretty good Abingdon Boys School song.
