Hmm.. perhaps time will tell. First episode was not too bad, but now that I think about the concept, yes, I suppose it would seem like Hakuoki once they recruit more heroes. No doubt they all are men..

.. At least the girl isn't completely useless and annoying like in Haku. Well, maybe useless to certain extent but at least she holds (or the tiara does) some kind of power.

Hmm, the first episode seemed pretty good.

Spoiler for Episode 1:


I liked the action, I will expect more to come in future episodes.

Brave10 proved to be much better than I initially thought it would be; the cover and the synopsis really didn't appeal all that much to me. Surprisingly enough, I ended up loving the first episode.

Spoiler for Episode 1:


The OP was pretty good; animation was awesome, and the music was even better. It was really confusing to watch it for the first time, as it was hard to tell who the main character was.

But man, did I love the art or what. It's been a while since I've taken such a liking towards the art in an anime. The fight scenes were pretty well animated, too.

I decided to go read the first 20 chapters of the manga, and well, I just can't help but wonder if 20 chapters are enough material for 12 episodes. I guess they might be, but I don't know really. There's a lot of ecchi, and a bit of nudity in the manga. I wonder if those scenes will be cut from the anime adaptation.

Was better then what i was expecting. Isanami is great. Hope we find out a little more about Saizou. Lol Yukimura using them as bait.

I wasn't too sure about this anime either, but I was pleasantly surprised. It had a good amount of action and I enjoyed the animation. I'm a little disappointed there's only 12 episodes though. I'll watch it for the rest of the season to see how everything progresses.

well, I liked a lot this first episode. Quite good actions, even if I'm not that fond of calling each technique out.
Liked the characters too, they are not the usual stoic samurai/ninja, but they look a bit more balanced. Even Isanami, that is great btw.
Anyways historical setting looks more like basilisk, even the ten warriors thing, iirc.
Sure I hope it will not be anything like Hakuoki.

Very good start to what is currently the only new anime I've started watching this season(for some reason I've lost all drive to watch any new anime expect this, altho will probably get round to watching a few more later on)

I was exicted for this way before and thankfully I wasn't let down, infact it went beyond what i was expecting, which is def a good thing for me.

So far so good, if they can keep this up, in for a very good series me thinks.
And odd as this may be coming from someone like me, this could very well prove to be better than say something like Samurai Girls and I loved that series(loved it but it was in essence drivel for the most part)

As it stands anime of the season for me....but then it's the only new anime I've watched so far

Rina Satou as Isanami = <3

hurray an airhead main female who has a great power that only be used when she's not herself, and a gloomy tsun main lead

the action is not that fun to watch either, a lot of posing and not enough dynamic camera angles. Horizon and f/z spoiled me too much last season.


will still catch the next two eps to see if it improves or not

Good start even though there are lots of boys again. But at least I like the heroine so I will stay around and watched it.

Great episode, for now none of the characters annoyed me

...

I'm expecting to see some censoring, but anyway there'll be a lot action^^

I've only read the first 20 chapters and someone said it's 8 volumes, maybe depending on the audience we might have a season 2?

Episode 1 wasn't bad... not bad at all. My eyes grew wide when I heard Saizo speak. Didn't expect Daisuke Ono would be his voice actor. The action wasn't horrible and the animation was fluid. At least it's better than what I've seen from other shows that I've watched lately. To sum it all up, I really enjoyed the first episode. =D

Yup, I also find the 1st ep a whole lot more enjoyable than what I first expecting it to be^^ At least it's nothing like hakuoki at all, thank God. I also like the chemistry between Saizo&Isanami so far, hopefully she's not going to turn for the worse as just a damsell in distress mary-sue in the future. Plus none of the charas annoyed me yet, looking forward for the next eps^_^ Well, at least I found another fun show to add on my anime list this season, while waiting for spring to come for more F/Z, E7 AO & Accel World.

I also enjoyed this episode more than I thought though the number of episodes is worrisome especially when you take in account that we still have to be introduced to like 7 new characters (heroes).

So true. I also checked the cast and it made me watch the 1st ep, even though it's not quite my kind of thing. But I think I will give it a go and continue watching. Or maybe rather listening.
