The record of the bloody battle between the twelve proud warriors— The 12th Twelve Tournament that gets held every twelve years… Twelve brave warriors who bear the names of the signs of the zodiac fight each other for the lives and souls. The participants are twelve very strange warriors: “Rat,” “Ox,” “Tiger,” “Rabbit,” “Dragon,” “Snake,” “Horse,” “Goat,” Monkey,” “Rooster,” “Dog,” and “Pig.” The victor of this tournament gets to have one wish granted, whatever the wish may be. The one wish they want granted— Who will be the final survivor? -Crunchyroll Description


My Thoughts

I think the idea that 12 human Zodiac signs killing each other is a cool concept, but I am not if I like the presentation. This feels a lot like Fate/stay to me. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing Fate/stay a least explained what was going on at the very start. This episode focused entirely on the boar, so i foresee  each episode probably focusing on each Zodiac’s backstory while they do battle. I am going to give anime the 3 episode treatment, if it doesn’t hold up then i am dropping it.


P.s  My Zodiac Sign is the Monkey.
