    The pain that everyone cannot escape when living: the living, old, sick, and death. The way to save it is through Buddhist enlightenment. At the end of a war, a prince who obtained the Buddhist enlightenment became the Shaka Nyorai and saved the world. Long time has passed since that, currently the latter age of decadence. Mara, the worry that once tried to destroy Shaka's enlightenment, has made a contract with the devil in order to seek revenge against Shaka. He begins to control people with worries.

    Meanwhile, a team centering around Shaka, called the Thirteen Buddhas, and the two benevolent deities who protect the dharma, Taishakuten and Bonten, have stood up to fight against Mara to protect people from worries. A battle between Mara and the Buddhist gods that involves people begins now!

    Episode 1

    Vice ain't nice.

    I wasn't expecting much out of this show, and it turns out to be just another ripoff of Touken Ranbu, this one going the Hanamaru route. Pretty much, it explains what these agents of Buddha are out to do as they are to prevent vices from taking over humans, but everybody has at least a little bit of it, and they only have the strength to go after the big ones. And that was amusing to see that these boys can change their appearance to the human eye, though some boys just don't know who to pick as they are not supposed to draw attention. Just when it looked like it was going to be routine, in comes Ashura there making a dramatic entrance. He figures to be nothing but bad news.

    Anyway, I'll give it another episode or two, and while I had low interest and expectations coming in, I'm willing to give it a chance to make a statement or not before making a definitive decision.

      It's not just humans who get it.

      And it turns out that this problem is not limited to humans as animals in the zoo got infected by the evil vice shadows with the culprit being an elephant who charged at a human after they taunted the elephants. And the boys come in to save the day. Man, this show continues to be just a train wreck in every way possible, and if I want to watch this kind of crap going down, at least Touken Ranbu does a much better job than this.

      So with that, this is the first drop of the season as I had low expectations coming in, but this is just mind-blowingly bad.
