[Anime] Youjo Senki

Youjo Senki


Youjo Senki has an interesting premise, but the plot fails to build on it.

The story stumbles around as the protagonist gets thrown into random military operations that have nothing to do with her personal quest, so naturally you are never invested in any of them either. The whole thing boils down to watching characters react to whatever is happening to them rather than following some sort of a plot. And given how it’s incomplete, I’m not even sure if we’re any further in the story in episode twelve than we were in episode one.

Oh, and the reason protagonist is a little girl is actually explained in a very interesting way. I almost skipped this show because I thought I wouldn’t be able to take it seriously, but, turns out, Tanya is not exactly what she seems on the surface.

Interesting premise
Characters other than the protagonist are forgettable
Interesting, alternate history setting
The plot doesn’t seem to have a clear direction and just stumbles around
Interesting, likable protagonist
And that makes it darn boring at times
