Anime Review – Sengoku Otome: Momoiro Paradox

sengoku otome anime

I don’t know about any of you guys, but when I think of feudal Japan, the first thing that comes to mind is how gay some of those warriors were (I’m looking at you, Akechi Mitsuhide). It’s just me who thinks that? Well, that must be due to the fact that Sengoku Otome rewrites ancient Japanese history in a more estrogen-heavy way, and for that, I send my thanks~

soukou no strain anime

I think it was last year that a tipster hinted that Soukou no Strain would be of interest to me, and lo and behold, here we are with a review. Soukou no Strain does indeed have a little something for us, but is that enough to cover for thirteen episodes worth of hot mecha on mecha action?

10. Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo

Admittedly, Cross Ange didn’t end the way we all wanted it to. Hilda didn’t get her much deserved girlfriend, and Ange ended up with Tusk, a male character. In terms of yuri, this couldn’t have gone any more wrong. Though, the yuri we got through the rest of the show probably made up for the horrible outcome, if only a little.

So, basically, the whole show involves some steamy yuri sex scenes, some kisses, and even some true romance, despite the fact that Cross Ange often didn’t depict the yuri taking place as something happening out of the characters’ love for one another. In the end, there were still enough yuri characters left, and if we now add the fact that the whole plot of this show, as well as pretty much all of the important characters, were pretty damn awesome, then this makes for a damn great anime, if you ask me.
