Koihime Musou ~ Otome Tairan Anime, Disk 2 (English)

February 11th, 2012

It’s always disconcerting when something like Koihime Musou actually stops staring at girls tits and tells some bits of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms in an almost sensible way.

It’s also kind of wasted, as no one is watching Koihime Musou ~ Otome Tairan for a retelling of the Romance anyway.

Luckily for Yuri fans, Volume 2 starts off with one of the least sucky episodes overall, in which Koukin and Sonsaku have a spat, and Kogai locks them in a warehouse to make up…and so they do, in time-honored fashion. This episode also contains the only genuinely amusing line of the series, in which Shuri mentions that she needs the Kotou pill (for an utterly idiotic subplot) and she knew it was a Son family treasure – to which the reply is something like, “Nah, it’s not a treasure, so we have no idea where it is. It’s in there somewhere.”

After a few more episodes related to cat ears and boobs, the story suddenly notices that it’s fairly deep in towards the end of the story and, so, with a few weird turns and about a million handwaves, the allianced generals defeat Ukitsu, who wasn’t really nearly that important in the original (except he may have haunted Sonken after his death, but that’s probably apocryphal.)

Anyway, Disk 2 is why I remembered this series sucking less than the rest of the series. I’m glad I didn’t entirely make that up in my head. Phew.

Ratings:

Art – Colorful
Story – Schizophrenic
Characters – Breasts DO NOT DO THAT
Yuri -There is some
Service – Infinity

Overall – Once I scour the cat ears and boob stuff from my brain, I will only remember that it was the least sucky Koihime Musou series. And I will be happy with that.
