Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride – 04

「将の花嫁」 (Shō no Hanayome)
“Bride of the General”

This was easily the funniest episode of the second season and without doubt, the return of the show’s ultimate troll, Yagyuu Gisen (Mizuhara Kaoru) is a big part of the reason. Yes, Gisen is alive and well, not just her physical presence, but also her sexual intensity and theatrical body language. It’s safe to say there’s no other character quite like Gisen and she’s a particular standout in this cast, mostly because she’s perpetually horny and extremely shameless in her pursuits. It’s quite telling that Muneakira is almost always stripped naked when Gisen is present and her many unfailing initiatives to sex up the Shinkage General has been made apparent since day one – the first thing she did when she cornered Muneakira was to help him unzip, no questions asked! But that’s not all there is to Gisen, she’s the poster child for a two-faced bitch – adorable and sexy on the front, but cruel and insidious in the rear. From the moment she stepped foot into the Shinkage Meido Kissa – tied up in bondage style, no less – you knew she was all set to wreak havoc, and I certainly don’t expect her to hold back on the deceits and seductive moves this time around.

Gisen, to put it mildly, revels in the fine art of troll and she has emerged as a character that seemingly can’t not be funny. Even without her mind-controlling evil eye, Gisen has proven she’s more than capable of creating a ruckus with just her words and the big news that she brought with her this time is the existence of an entity that is even more powerful than a Master Samurai – the Queen of Blades, a Samurai Bride. As usual, the plot device was just an excuse to let the comical moments play out and most of the excitement came from Gisen’s masterful trolling ways. The skits and sight gags were every bit as smart and hilarious as ever, whether it’s Yukimura’s fascination with big boobs or Sen Hime’s voyage into a masochist role. But as much I adore those two, Kanetsugu is in league of her own this week and I have no doubt her full-on erotic fantasy has kept her awake all night. That sketch, no question, had me laughing out loud and judging from her complete disregard of body exposure in the next morning, I suspect Kanetsugu’s cherry is ripe for popping, if and when Muneakira decides to pay the dog shed a visit.

It wouldn’t be Hyakka Ryouran without the sex jokes and verbal nastiness, but there’s also a sentimental component to the show that is featured consistently in every episode. That’s where Juubei and Sasaki Kojirou came into the picture this week, and for all of Gisen’s admittedly dreadful deeds, it’s plain clear Amakusa’s Master Samurai does genuinely care for the person she calls onee-sama. Now that Gisen has made her appearance, it seems like the show is ready to move on to the next stage. I have my suspicion on what the criteria to become a Samurai Bride is – sexual intercourse with Muneakira, but that’s clearly not within the boundaries of a non-hentai, no matter how dangerously close to the edge Hyakka Ryouran treads. The answer will be revealed sooner or later but for now, I’m contented with where the series is heading and I can’t wait to see what hilarity the Samurai Girls have in store for us next week!

Random tidbits:

tl;dr: @SeishunRC – Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride 04: The ultimate troll, Gisen is back! But Kanetsugu’s full-on erotic fantasy steals the show.

    Gisen was so troll….xD
    I can’t help but wonder if she’ll join the harem, despite “belonging” to Amakusa, or whatever his name was.

    • April 29, 2013 at 1:24 amSeishun

      We know she doesn’t mind polishing his “sword”, so that’s a good start ;)

    • April 29, 2013 at 2:58 amlol

      Amakusa is a she

      • April 29, 2013 at 6:00 amSDFSDG

        Yeah, I don’t get why they constantly refer to him as male when the thing she was clearly licking back in season one had boobies (AKA her ritual to revieve…her?).
        Also can’t help but enjoy Kanetsugu’s interference with Senhime and Yukimura. I kept on replaying the scene where she ripped out her fake boobs because the noises from both of them were too hilarious to pass up.

  • April 28, 2013 at 10:30 pmHalfDemonInuyasha

    And we don’t even get any real build-up to Gisen’s return. She’s just…there, lol. Now that the main cast is all back together again, it’ll be interesting to see how things go, but not before the obligatory swimsuit episode next! <3

    • April 29, 2013 at 1:31 amSeishun

      All you need to know is that she returned in one piece, boobs and ass intact, and libido off the chart ;)

  • April 28, 2013 at 10:49 pmx

    Queen of Baldes?

    • April 28, 2013 at 11:04 pmSeishun

      Whooopsssie… have edited the text. Thanks ;)

    • April 28, 2013 at 11:50 pmsortedevaras

      Yes, Kerrigan needs in on this.

      • April 29, 2013 at 1:34 amSeishun

        Heh, I was so tempted to link a picture of Kerrigan but decided to keep it within the anime theme XD

      • April 29, 2013 at 5:27 amTassadar

        She is the Swarm! And I must cleanse her from this world! (my name says it all I think!)

  • April 28, 2013 at 11:04 pmewok40k

    The one anime that does its fanservice in a completely unashamed, blatant and unapologetic fashion. NSFW doesnt even start to describe it.
    Could not resist chuckling as Gisen trolled one girl after another into trying things that could produce Samurai Bride…
    Kanetsugu going into full ero-fantasy mode. Doghouse blown up…
    Yukimura going into milk advertisement business only to turn up with fake boobs…
    Sen-hime turn to M side of the things together with truly perverted Hanzo hoping for a royal payback once she gets back into S side (but what if Sen gets more taste for M, reversing the roles permanently ???)…
    Gisen herself trying to get into General’s pants (literally!) was cherry on top.
    Surprisingly she showed a more serious and caring face when she saved Jubei form a dark samurai.
    My take on the Samurai Bride is obvious: it is a marriage – a reinforced vow of mutual support, trust and love – that would be a s uitable trigger. This is of course on direct collision course with the show’s harem nature. I can’t wait to see how they will handle it…

    • April 29, 2013 at 1:43 amSeishun

      I LOL-ed so hard when doghouse blew up!
      Marriage??? That would totally ruin everything. Harem FTW :P

      • April 30, 2013 at 7:59 pmAex

        Tenchi Solution. Just marry them all :P

  • April 28, 2013 at 11:11 pmScardigne

    Alright guys be sincere here, you guys are still watching this because the plot is very good right?

    • April 28, 2013 at 11:22 pmMgMaster

      Silly man,of course we are!What did you think?It’s so well-shaped,tender,firm,bouncy and…okaaaaaaaay,I’ll stop now :P

    • April 29, 2013 at 1:47 amSeishun

      Of course, how in the world did you think I wrote a 600-word post if “plot” and “back story” are non-existent :P

      • April 29, 2013 at 12:43 pmScardigne

        Hmmmm BACK story you say :)

  • April 28, 2013 at 11:32 pmDunn

    Very kind indeed.

    For a moment there, I thought Gisen was back and will be using her Evil Eye for ‘evil’ intentions…

    • April 29, 2013 at 1:50 amSeishun

      OH YESSS! Sen Hime looks absolutely gorgeous in that traditional dress. What’s underneath is also not too shabby, if I might add :P

  • April 28, 2013 at 11:41 pmVaans

    Gisen for best girl!

    Hopefully, she’s permanently on Muneakira’s side and become a master samurai. She’s
    just too hot to let go.

    It won’t be for long before Muneakira loses his virginity. lol

    • April 29, 2013 at 1:54 amSeishun

      Is it because of her eye patch? :P
      Don’t rule Kanetsugu out, she clearly wants a piece of that meat too :3

  • April 28, 2013 at 11:44 pmMgMaster

    This was definitely THE ULTIMATE CURE this week for any lingering loli desires from Crime Edge’s Iwai-chan.Special thanks go to Gisen & Sen Hime – enough of them and it won’t be hard to remain on the right path.

    At any rate,I can see the light returning!

    • April 29, 2013 at 1:55 amSeishun

      Shouldn’t you be eyeing Yukimura if loli is your type? :P

      • April 29, 2013 at 3:56 amMgMaster

        Pfff,no way!I’m a proud Sen Hime & Juubei worshiper myself!It’s just that this season has some interesting shows with lolies as part of the main cast thus making it kinda hard not to be eyeing them as well -_-

  • April 29, 2013 at 2:35 amRockmanshii

    I’m looking forward to next week for some swimsuits, even the dark samurai girls are participating.

    • April 30, 2013 at 3:56 amSeishun

      Mandatory swimsuit episode \o/

    • May 1, 2013 at 2:49 pmagr0n

      Actually Suisei no Gargantia is having it’s swimsuit episode next week as well. 2 in one week :p

  • April 29, 2013 at 8:46 amfoureyeszerosoul

    I think I like this anime’s version of Sasaki Kojiro. There’s something definitely sexy about a kimono-wearing woman with long hair and blindfold like that who speaks in archaic Japanese. Reminds me of Fate/Stay Night’s Rider (Medusa).

    *her eyebrows strike me a weird, though.

    • April 29, 2013 at 11:36 amRockmmanshii

      I’m with you there, I love characters who speaks like that.

    • April 30, 2013 at 4:01 amSeishun

      I agree, Sasaki Kojirou is definitely the Dark Samurai that stands out the most and the fact that she’s in love with Musashi only makes her sexier :3

  • April 29, 2013 at 2:56 pmMagoiichi

    I finally got around to watching this and come to find out that the episode I downloaded was censored!So I immediately stopped watching at the part when Gisen shows up and downloaded the uncensored version from a different sub group.Nobody censors my Gisen, mmkay?!

    Let the troll games begin!

    I missed you Gisen and all of your aggressive sexual glory! <3

    My little Yukimura can’t be an Oppai Loli!

    • April 30, 2013 at 4:05 amSeishun

      Yes sir, Gisen’s back and she’s feeling as randy as ever XD
      It’s AT-X and Arms, you gotta watch this show in its uncensored glory ;)

  • May 1, 2013 at 3:14 amHanaKana

    • May 1, 2013 at 4:47 amSeishun

      What do you think? They seemed turned on lol

  • May 1, 2013 at 2:52 pmagr0n

    I should find a different site to watch this anime, I’ve been watching the censored so when I saw your pictured I was like “Oh” good thing they still censored Muneakira :p

  • May 3, 2013 at 10:17 amion62

    I swear, ever since that episode where she gets sniffed, I can’t stare at that kid’s pantyshot without being mildly disturbed.
