Yasuke

May 4, 2021

Well what to say 

This show was a pile of interesting ideas, the potential for great story and presentation of historical happenings buttt,

everything went south really fast

Spoilers ahead

The story is one huge recap slash speed deal mix kinda thing

Let me explain: 

Firstly, the whole show is seen from the perspective of Yasuke who remembers his past as a general of Oda Nobunaga and lives a quiet life as a fisherman somewhere nowhere in feudal Japan. This is already a waste of potential and storytelling as everything that could be interesting about the show went to waste, it was too fast and too messy.

Yasuke remained a very shallow character overall 

Secondly, they introduced robots, mutants, isekai level magic powers in a story about a historical figure and his life in feudal Japan, like wtf were they thinking 

The girl called Saki that ended up teaming up with Yasuke later on went from very ill in the first 2 episodes to walking around destroying every bad guy coming her way with insane magical powers that she learned to control in less than a day in the show and 5 min in the episode

Lastly, the show was enjoyable to some point as even if it was a total mess it had great animation and fighting sequences as well good voice acting (in some characters).

My advice is that you watch the fighting sequences and maybe if interesting in historical stuff the moments of Yasuke's remembering moments 

Such a shame what they presented, did, and wasted time on  to what they could have achieved, presented and showed 

4/10 story
7/10 animation
5/10 sound
5/10 characters
5/10 overall
