My Comments:
I really enjoyed watching this anime series. It is filled with cute guys (the main and supporting characters). I found the premise of the story itself it just be totally hilarious: the ‘pretty’ boys in the school being recruited to dress up like girls to keep up the morale of the other male students.

That’s intially why I wanted to watch it. There are no ‘yaoi’ scenes in this one by the way.

Online info:

Mirage of Blaze (2002), a shounen-ai anime series directed by Susumu Kudo, is based on a series of novels written by Mizuna Kuwabara (桑原水菜).

Difficult to classify, Mirage of Blaze is equal parts melodrama, historical romance, and supernatural fantasy. Japanese history predominates a heavily structured plot, which mainly involves the continued aggression between magic using guardians, or “possessors,” and the denizens of a “feudal underworld,” or the restless souls of long-dead samurai attempting to re-ignite ancient war on the modern plane.

ANIMEOTA Write-up:
Koutetsu Sangokushi is an incredible and complex anime set in a world where things like a Sovereign Seal can exist.

People desire the power of the Sovereign Seal (S.S.) and use it to start wars and live destructive lives. The problem is that the S.S. takes over the mind and heart of its user, leading to destruction and causing the innocent to suffer.
