Dai Shogun! - Great Revolution - Complete Collection (2014/Sentai Blu-ray)

Picture: A Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: B+

Keiichiro's no samurai, but he is a ruffian with a heart of gold (though he doesn't look like it). He soon discovers he is a lost heir and the only one who can pilot the legendary robot Susanoo to protect Japan, only catch is that Susanoo also needs a female copilot and Keiichiro is allergic to women. Now, his life is surrounded by buxom woman can he survive the night much less the battles?

Dai Shogun! (2014) is filled with busty girls, ninjas, samurai, giant steampunk robots with tons of fan service. The giant robots are called Onigamis and created to protect Japan from the invading foreign devils, but as our protagonist learn about his past and how to pilot Susanoo he must also learn to get over his fear of woman, with each new female copilot Susanoo takes on another form and Keiichiro gets another lover. And for some reason, most of the enemies were also buxom females.

This was an action filled anime series with plenty of eye candy and girls with mechas win scantly clad outfits. It takes all the typical fanservice and rolls it all into one, mixed with steampunk and slightly historical fiction of Japan.

The 1080p digital High Definition 1.78 X 1 presentation is near Sentai's very best, while the lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo Japanese tracks complement the images, even when it cannot match them. Extras include clean opening and closing animation and trailers.
