Senyu: First Impressions
“Long ago, there lived an evil being who reigned over the world through fear, called Satan Rchimedes. He invaded the human world with his many demon underlings, spreading madness and chaos everywhere. One thousand years ago, this menace was sealed by the hero Creation, and peace returned to the world.”
Senyu is comprised of 5 minute episodes which are shown weekly. So far, we follow a pair of fighters who are sent out to kill this evil being. Instantly gaming fans will notice the particular costume one of the main characters is wearing – this suggests more comedy and costumes to come in following episodes.
Senyu is treated very much like an RPG game, characters level up and have statuses which promotes the idea that in future episodes we will be introduced to more similar characters and watch the current ones progress in the world.
The only down side to all this is that the episodes are very short. Having to wait a week for each new one can be very disappointing so we suggest waiting a few weeks and then catching up. The comedy is worth it!
