Everyone wants a piece of the new girl in town, but nothing turns Kakufu on more than a brutal street fight. She shrugs off her shredded skirts and tattered tops with a flurry of busty badassery while fighting to unite seven rival schools. And with no shortage of enemies, why take on one guy when she can take on ten? In this adventure where teenage brawlers are guided by jewels infused with the spirits of ancient warriors, Kakufu is content to flash her panties and crack some skulls. But like any hero, she cannot escape her destiny – no matter how dark it may be.

Now before I go any further; I should point out that Ikki Tousen is not high art. It's not another Rahxephon or even a Rurouni Kenshin; rather it's a knock em down, drag em out shonen fighting anime that's all about panty shots and shredded uniforms and lots and lots of girl on girl action that's not always limited to just kicks if you know what I mean? There's plenty of good reasons why this anime is rated 17+. wink wink, nudge nudge!
The plot for whatever it matters involves various and sundry teenagers from various high schools who carry within them the spirits of ancient warriors and every generation or two they come together to refight ancient battles. And among them is Hakufu, a blonde bimbo who gives a whole other meaning to the word airhead and who may very well carry the spirit of the most powerful warrior of them all! That's basically it.
Now why they keep refighting ancient battles is never really explained. (Maybe the later sequels explain it.) Or at least I never could figure it out. But it doesn't really matter as it's all about the fan service and that there is a plenty. It's all about boosomy girls, upskirt shots and lots and lots of fighting. Thirteen episodes of it. It never gets too serious and at least in this first series, really doesn't have any definite ending.
So if you want a fighting anime heavy on the fan service or you thought Agent Aika was too tame, look no further. This series should be right down your alley!
Re-issued on two discs with English and Japanese stereo in a single sized collection. Four stars if you're into fan service, three if you're not!
Ikii Tousen is an entertaining series consisting of 13 episodes with the usual Japanese fan service of panty shots, wardrobe malfunctions and BOTH a hot springs and a pool episode. It doeen't follow the manga closely, but it is still a good show. If you liked Love Hina but wished there were more martial arts battles and boob shots, you'll like Ikki Tousen.
The main character is a sexy Anime babe who gets her top ripped off a lot, and provides lots of Panty shots.
Hey, I like sexy, nude Anime babes as much as the next guy, but I really like them a lot better when there's a real good story and some quality animation to go along with it.
