Once every twelve years, a twelve-way battle royale is held, and this year is the 12th time.

Twelve ferocious fighters carrying the names of the twelve characters of the Chinese zodiac fight, wagering each of their lives and souls. These strange twelve participants are the rat, the ox, the tiger, the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the goat, the monkey, the rooster, the dog, and the pig.

The one who emerges victorious can have one wish granted regardless of the circumstances.

There is one wish that each contender wants granted no matter what...

Who will survive until the end?

On a battlefield where strategy and slaughter swirl together, whose tears will be the one to fall?

The battle royale that will shake your soul is about to break out.

Three Episode Impression

Juuni Taisen is about twelve warriors who fight to the death once every twelve years. Each representing an animal from the Chinese zodiac, they each have a unique attacking style and representation within the series as well as a unique backstory. A city is cleared and after swallowing a form of poison, they have 24 hours to win. The winner will be given the antidote, and because the juuni taisen is not completely merciless, the winner will also be granted a wish of their choice. Everybody, clap your hands!

Juuni Taisen was something that was originally set for Summer 2017, but was quickly moved to Fall 2017. Probably a good move because Kakegurui and Boku no Hero Academia 2 would have overshadowed it. The series comes from the Monogatari series creator so there is a very intricate and detailed backstory to each character. Sadly though, when you get to see a backstory, thus far at least, the character dies at the end of the episode. Each has their own quirks and personalities and the theme so far is that appearances are deceiving. Juuni Taisen is running par for the course for a death game, but don’t let that shy you away from watching this great series. The only complaint is that the action scenes, while good, tend to be very short-lived. Rumors are that, at the very least, a second season is on the way, so there is that to anticipate.
