This story line was completely original, (unless you call taking from history copying). It was based on the same events of the game Romance of the Three Kingdoms which I have yet to play. This much humor in it, mostly sexual innuendo or characters being placed in uncomfortable situations. I, myself, was extremely disappointed to see it go by so fast, for at the time i was watching every episode as fast as I can. There are 13 episodes which was a complete let down, though I supposed there was not much to indulge on. I found it enjoyable to watch and found much excitement in the fights of the higher up ranks, such as Kanu against Hakufu and Ukitsu against Hakufu.
I have the first, second and third season! But I'm really desperate with the third season it really sucks! They said
there would be more fighting and so on but there is nothing compared to the other twos before! The first and second
season are much better than the the fird one is! Im also really despered at how the characters voices are they arent the
same anymore as before and I hate that! The third season is just (in my opinion) a yuri complot and has nothing really
to do with fighting sences!
1st & 2nd are Great!
I enjoyed this anime for a pretty obvious reason...hot chicks beating the crap out of each other. Suprised? Didn't think so ^.^ This series (which consists of Ikkitousen, Dragon Destiny, Great Guardians, and Xtreme Xecuter) are as basic at story telling as there is when it comes to a fighting anime. There are ancient dragons, mystical powers and of course people with super human strength. There are also panty shots...and ALOT of them. So if like simple characters, easy to follow plot, busty chicks kicking the crap out of each other and nudity (yes they are topless some scenes and there are entire OVA's devoted to fanservice with nudity) then this is the show for you! *Thumbs up sign*
I don't give fanservice/ecchi animes very high ratings... it's pretty typical and meh. I don't really like the characters because they're all predictable, and I hate it when chicks in animes are all "Oh I have honor" "I'm shy" "I'm moral" yet the anime is full of fanservice. I mean, come on, if yer gonna make an ecchi anime then at least make those girls what they really are: sluts. They're all pretty slutty regardless of what they say. To me it was way too typical. Typical enemies become friends. Typical girls with big boobs. Not to mention the art in the first season was so horrible. Thank GOODNESS it got better over time, that's the only thing that I can compliment.
Good: I liked alot of the fights, Not that bad for animation or story, but not the greatest either. Worth a watch
especially if you are male and like the fan service type shots and moments. This has tons for ya!
Big breasted kick ass beauties with little clothing for the boys lol. Though, I did like it but of course not for those reasons lol.
Watch the first 3 episodes of the first of four seasons. Not bad, but things are overly exaggerated, like blood loss and such. Ranked 5 because I just started and right now It still has plenty of time to fall upon it's face, or be really good.
It's a weird anime. It's a story of female fighters who inherited the spirits of the warriors from the Romance of Three
Kingdoms continues with more panties showing and boob bouncing it has ALOT of fan-service but the characters looking
nice and the girls are cute and Sooo HOT. Anyway prefer the manga.
A very interesting series if you're up for some street fighting and sexy action. Although it is loosely based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, it's fun to learn a thing or two from this series. Xtreme Xecutors introduces their version of Ma Chao into the series along with the returning characters who we all know and love. Looking forward to their next work of series and see if they are creating any more historical characters from the Romance of Three Kingdoms.
Not an aware winner, but very watchable -- not slow or boring, but its all about multiple warring high schools vying for supreme status.
It is strongly a vehicle for "fan service" -- lost of panty shots and tops falling off that magically hang on the the nipples, in most cases. Maybe a few scenes w/nipples. sAt the top of the competition are various warriors who posses stones that identify them as competing warriors. The highest ranked warriors are being guided by their 'fates' to play play out events that have occurred far in the past involving supreme martial artists who's essence has been transmitted down in the stones. But fate != destiny.

It's primary a vehicle, it seems for fan service and showing different forms of martial artist-like ways of fighting w/people or eliminating them.
Nevertheless, other than the repetitive fan-service being predictable and sometimes a bit boring,
it was over all a watchable, thought reasonably mindless entertaining anime.
Another one of those that I like ;) and it's not because of the ecchi, mind you.
I really like anime that are drawn with details and with action, fighting, etc.
so this was one of the most enjoyable anime for me ;]
I think Ikkitousen (all three of them) is being severely underestimated because of the way the characters are portrayed. People take one look at it & turn away because they think it's just a bunch of half-naked women fighting aimlessly while focusing only on their bodies. They couldn't be more wrong, those were my first thoughts as well, but after watching them I stand corrected. It is actually a pretty good fighter from a martial arts standpoint. I'm sure many more people would enjoy it as well if they gave it a chance.
This show has a great deal of 'fan service'. While the story is interesting. It's not really anything amazing. What does make this anime stand apart is the fight scenes mixed in with a great deal of panty shots. Really the fight scenes are top tier and that is why I rate this show as high as I do.
