Saiyuuki Reload Blast
« on: August 05, 2017, 12:17:14 AM »
Saiuuki Reload was one of the coolest shonan anime.....20 years ago. And seems so outdated. The clique man-boys with their bickering. And the bromanship shines when it's needed. All the male tsuendere.

1-3.
Typical demon bashing.

4-5
Some back stories. Now it's getting interesting. A bit more 'meat' in the story.

Basically, it's 15 years too late. I watch it cause it's mid week and nothing else to watch.

The best part are the post ending lame 'Ura-sai' segments. And Aho girl will fit in with the man boys really well.

ps. With all the cool abds, bad boys image and smoking pose, is Saiyuuki Reload targeting the Josei market, not the shoman market.

While the anime visibly tried to hook a larger audience since the first series, the target demographic never was young males to begin with. It has always been published in a jsei magazine indeed (unless the first mag. was shjo, not sure anymore).


About the past lifes episodes, it's nice only for people who forgot about the fragments seen in the second half of the first show, skipped the OAVs and never read the Gaiden manga. But I guess it's a good way to fill a 12 eps series when you have only a handful of chapters to adapt.
