About Dai Shogun Blu-ray

Dai Shogun collection contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Takashi Watanabe.

In a world where history took a different path, Japan has been isolated from the outside world by steam-powered robots that repel all invaders. Inside Japan, however, the people are divided into feuding and fighting feudal factions. Feisty Keiichiro Tokugawa dreams of changing this and unifying Japan, and he just may be the one man who can use the legendary giant robot Susanoo.

Unfortunately, just touching a woman makes him break out in hives, and the Susanoo ALSO requires a female copilot. In VERY close quarters. And just to twist the katana, while there seem to be plenty of women who might covet the copilot's seat, not all of them have his best interests at heart! Who can he trust? Kiriko the Ninja? Chiharu the fox-demon? Or will Keiichiro's rash ambitions be thwarted by rashes and a totally rational phobia of the female form? It's a giant robot show like no other as the birds, the bees, and the giant robots take flight in Dai Shogun!

Stay Away from this!

by

Did not like, nor could I get into the story at all!
The animation is terrible, the characters are uninteresting!
The only positive thing I can think of to say about this series is that the artwork is OK.

should have been left on the drawing board

by

I couldn't get past the second episode of this anime, it's BAD. The "plot" revolves around the main character needing to stay a virgin to pilot his mech so the other side just throws women at him hoping they can win. It's just a bunch of bad fan service with a horrible mech battle at the end. I mean seriously, just look at the cover, mech in the background of the TnA is exactly how is goes.

Minimally Animated Trashy Fanservice

by

The big thing to realize going into this is that it barely qualifies as "animation." If you've seen any of Marvel's "Motion Comics," you'll have a pretty good idea of how 90% of the footage here looks - only some CG fights (and mouths) are even modestly animated. So, animation is bottom of the barrel.

It also has some pretty bad characters and plot. Just your standard cliches and tropes mashed together seemingly without thought. Only a couple villains stand out as even halfway decent, with heroes so pathetic you often wish the villains could win.

But, on the plus side, the art is actually quite impressive all around, so there is a solid amount of eye candy, and since it's mostly still and nearly-still shots, you often get plenty of time to ogle. Trashy fanservice is appropriately abundant to boot.

But, that's really it. And unless you really like the artwork and fanservice, I simply can't recommend this one.

Great Art and CG But Nothing Groundbreaking

by -

Dai Shogun takes place in an alternate past of Nagasaki where Japan is guarded by giant mechs. Keiichiro Tokugawa is destined to pilot one of these mechs but the catch is he needs to remain a virgin. As things progress he is introduced to more women he can't touch and then introduced to the bigger threat of the world. The story is sort of silly and a mash up of other things, but it has it's charm.

As for the anime, the artwork is top notch, the characters are insanely detailed and voluptuous. It comes at a cost though because the characters are barely animated. It's almost like a powerpoint presentation, but again, with really detailed artwork. However, the mechs on the show are computer animated and they animate really well, so overall the show is kind of a mixed bag.

In the end Dai Shogun is a good looking show, with an average story but I wound up enjoying my time with it. It's only 12 episodes so not a huge investment if you decide to take the plunge.
