Thirteen years ago, the demon Kazan placed a curse on the continent of Arad, causing legions of demons to sprout from the earth. One young man named Baron also suffered its effects and is cursed with a demonic left arm. Baron now travels the land with Roxy, the spirit who resides in his sword, in the hopes of finding a cure. They are soon joined by self-proclaimed ‘Gunner of Love’ Capensis who literally falls from the sky; freakishly strong fist-fighter Ryunmei; and troublesome young mage Ixia. As they traverse a world of underground fight clubs and axe-wielding demons, will the party be able to find a way to remove the jinx on Baron’s arm, not to mention survive Ixia’s attempts at using magic?

Well, this show turned out to be a major disappointment. The first episode made it look like this anime would have a plot line and somewhat interesting characters, but both the characters and plot ended up being extremely lacking in substance. The plotline with the character Roxy could have been used to direct the entire show. Instead, any serious plot was tossed aside for the sake of bad comedy. Story: A woman, Roxy, turns into a demon because of a curse, dies, and her spirit somehow ends up stuck in the sword of a warrior named Baron. Although Roxy's small spirit is sometimes seen hovering next to Baron, she doesn't really do anything at all. This show could have used Roxy's curse as a major plot point, but it's almost ignored completely. It felt like the writers wanted her to be in the sword for a specific reason, but were too lazy to explain why. But back to the actual plot. Baron seems to be on a journey to find a cure for his own curse (cursed arm). Along the way he picks up a few friends he meets randomly, who decide to join him on his journey for no legitimate reason. So they begin to travel and nothing happens. There's no real connecting plot between the episodes. Baron's curse is sometimes brought up, but no information is ever gained. They walk into a village, see a problem, help out the town, then leave. Repeat for ten episodes. The show became dull very fast after I realized the plot was non-exsistant. At the end of the show the writers seemed to try to finally give it a plot, but it was weak and the terrible character dialogue ruins it. Overall, very weak plot without a proper intention or goal in mind. The main focus of the writers seemed to be on the comedy (which was goofy and terrible), and not creating an interesting show. Characters: None of the characters were interesting or very original. They played off a mix of RPG and anime stereotypes without giving them much depth, backstory, or relatability. They could have all died and I wouldn't have cared very much. Overall Although some screenshots look good, and the first episode seems to put a lot of effort into creating a promising plot, avoid this show at all costs. From the plot to the characters to the comedy, everything is weak and could have been done better. It can be good for a few little laughs, but twenty six episodes is far too long for this show, don't waste your time. The only people who may enjoy this are fantasy RPG superfans.

Slap Up Party: Arad Senki is a rather slow paced, and basic shounen anime. Some things do stand out that I found rather enjoyable. Story: There isn't much story to be had. The premise revolves around trying to cure kazan's curse, which is responsible for turning people into demons.Animation: I quite liked the animation. It's colorful and vibrant, and the characters and scenery are just nice to look at. The animation is pretty smooth throughout.Sound: Nothing really stands out, though I enjoyed the retro goodness of the ED.Characters: There is not much in terms of progression or back story, but the characters are nicely designed and are rather entertaining. There's Baron, the demon knight, who is a laid back defender of justice. He has some funny moments, and is pretty cool. Next is Capensis, the gunner, who is similar to sanji from one piece, but isn't as cool and is more goofy. There's Ryunmei, the fighter with large breasts. She's your basic independent woman who is the base for light ecchi elements, yet doesn't really get annoying. Then there's Ixia, the young mage. She's generally not very exciting, but has some funny moments. Last is Jeda, the manly, funny priest, who is borderline homosexual. He is quite entertaining and funny, though unfortunately he doesn't get many scenes to show that off.In conclusion, Slap Up Party: Arad Senki can be a fun little show if you enjoy shounen anime, and do not mind the slow pace and childish overtone of it. I'd recommend it to people that enjoy watching more family friendly shounens.
