Average Rating

During Japan's Sengoku period, several powerful warlords fought in politics and in arms with hopes of unifying the country under a central government. Nobunaga Oda had asserted himself as being the most powerful of these rulers by possessing the strength and military resource necessary to conquer all of Japan. Shingen Takeda and his trusted warrior Yukimura Sanada led one of the main clans standing in Nobunaga’s way. One night, Sanada had been ordered to lead a sneak attack against General Kenshin Uesugi, which was then thwarted by Masamune Date and his army. Sanada and Date fought to a draw, which forged a heated rivalry out of their newfound admiration for one another. Nobunaga continues to exert his forces in Sengoku Basara by doubling down on his influence across the country. Sanada and Date find themselves having to put their differences aside in order to quell the rise of Nobunaga and save feudal Japan from his tyrannical reign. Magical, militant, and political powers fly forth as these warriors and leaders clash amongst themselves and the armies of Nobunaga.

Over the top campy fun.


It’s really over the top but the joke gets old after the first few episodes, Rest of it’s super boring and predictable


Incredible over the top action with amazing music. Great characters and simple but effective plot. Really, really fun to watch.


This show has a horse with exhaust pipes. What more do you need to know?


Hot-blooded idiots punching each other in the face: the anime.


English 0/10


Who would have thought that Dynasty Warriors could be such a great anime?
