In the 13th century, the Mongolian Empire rapidly expands across the globe. Later historians who studied the prophecies of Nostradamus would say that Mongolia was the birthplace of the "Great King of Terror", Angolmois. And at last, the force of the Mongolian Empire would turn their attention toward Japan... 1274: The Bun'ei Invasion. This story is a fresh look at the great battle that rocked all of medieval Japan: the Mongol Invasion. It shows how the people of Tsushima panicked, struggled, and eventually rose up against the overwhelming forces of their enemy.

worst anime I've ever watched like there were so many plot wholes and things that were never explained. They tried to do that mysterious background thing, but with such an elaborate plot it just made things more confusing. Also, it was really vulgar with up in your face beheading and cutting people in half. Personally I don't care how much killing there is, it's just there was an unnecessary amount to the point it would make you uncomfortable. The show was so stupid I couldn't really remember any name except for the love of everybody's life,kuchii. Who's name was literally pronounced coochie. I don't mean to make fun of names I just felt their choice was questionable.  Then there was the whole traitors subplot we went down where they undermined a characters development to throw in a half assed betrayal plot. So he wasn't for betraying them, but then he was for it and suddenly kills not only the person who brought up becoming a traitor but also the woman that walked in on him killing the first person, she WASNT even gonna say anything bad about him either to the clan. I don't know much about the samurai era but I don't think there were guns involved during that time? Correct me if I'm wrong, though. Finally the animation was what made me wanna stop watching(I didn't though, stayed strong till the last episode where I skipped through it). The background seemed as though it was on top of the characters? Any time the screen panned it was as if there was a crumpled piece of paper on top of the entire screen. Then how the killing scenes never made sense, like they were full on cutting mofos in half with itty bitty swords as if it was nothing and I wouldn't have minded it if it wasn't for the fact that this show had NOTHING to do with supernatural strength. Sure the main character was OP asf but I feel like that's a given when watching the action genre. So, when kuchii started full on CUTTING PEOPLE IN HALF I was confused. Like half y'all ever heard of a skeleton? Because this show DEFINITELY has not. There were also a lot of things that could be fixed if the artists put themselves in the situation and calculated how the sword would stick out, how the blood would pool, etc. Watch the show if you want, just think about how shitty the animation is for a show made in 2018. There's better shows you could watch that have more than 12 episodes.

I guess it’s a testament to Angolmois’ quality that I can’t remember anyone from the show. Besides the Virtuous Main Character with a Dark Past, nobody else stands out immediately, and as the show goes on, you’ll only remember people for their allegiances. Japanese on one side, Mongols on the other. It’s a very clean, strict way of separating everything so conveniently, so the audience doesn’t get lost with all those names. And what names they all are, oh boy! The only introduction characters get is a quick subtitle as soon as they appear, and if they're lucky and show up in more than one episode, then they can rely on the power of repetition to make sure the audience at least remembers their faces. Watching Angolmois feels like sitting through a history lecture, and I say this in the most unflattering way possible. There isn’t any attempt to make things entertaining, as the show was obviously so concerned with making sure everything that happened in this historic war got properly translated to the screen. There’s nothing wrong with being factual, but if that’s all a series ever rides on, then it runs the risk of being… well, boring. That’s Angolmois’ biggest offense, unfortunately, that it does so much work to be as accurate as it can be, that it forgets it’s a series meant to entertain or engage the audience. Even its more technical aspects leave a lot to be desired, and most of it's to blame on the paper scroll aesthetic that's only useful for making things harder to see. Angolmois is, in a nutshell: boring, generic, uneventful, and ultimately extremely forgettable. There's a decent amount of war strategizing and a fair amount of gore, but it feels like the show's just barely going through the motions by committing them to screen. For a series set in a war, there’s not a lot in here that inspires much urgency or importance.
