Apologies for the two weeks of no-show, I had a really silly deadline at University I had to make amongst other things. But never mind that, as this week we'll be heading to lands once trodden by the One-Eyed Dragon himself. It's another place outside of Tokyo, and very much a place to visit if you fancy learning a little about Date Masamune's influence during the Sengoku period. The rest of you can ride around the place on a motor-horse, just don't tell them I sent you.

Even more Sengoku era action next season with Brave10 photo
Even more Sengoku era action next season with Brave10
by Chris Walden

Those familiar with Sengoku Basara, or perhaps even Hyakka Ryouran will be aware of who Sanada Yukimura is. Well, if you want more hot blooded samurai adventures with him (sorry Hyakka fans!) in the Warring States Period, then this is a show to keep your eye on!

The story follows the legendary tales of ten ninja known as the 'Sanada Ten Braves' or the 'Ten Heroes of Sanada'. Long and short of it, they helped Yukimura out during the violent period, and now they have their own anime! Of course, that's not to say that Brave10 won't be bending history as much as Sengoku Basara. As accurate a representation as that was, we all know that Abingdon Boys School simply weren't around back then. 

Take a look at the new PV after the jump and let me know what you think. It's certainly on my list of shows to watch next season, but then again, anything involving the Sengoku era would be. All I need now is for them to hurry up with that Date Masamune mech anime
