So, here’s my latest monovision crush: Date Masamune from Sengoku Basara anime.
The anime is based on a fighting game “set” during the Waring States Period, populated with “real” historical figures, and all twenty-four episodes are thoroughly delightful.
I’m not a Japanese historian, but I’m pretty sure Tadakatsu Honda was not a giant flying cyborg, Oda Nobunaga was not the devil king of the sixth kingdom or whatever it is, and if there had been a female ninja named Kasuga, she would have worn more clothes. Oooh la la! Sorry, fanboys, that impossible catsuit impossibly never falls off in all 24 episodes.
Never mind the Engrish. Oh, and the slash writes itself.
Oh, I forgot Motochika Chosokabe! How did that happen? Wow.
