Juuni Taisen

The second anime series I watched this year, this 12 episode series is like a sort of Hunger Games.

It was a rather okay show to be honest, and far "deeper" then the first episodes would like it to appear...

In a city of half a million people who have all been removed, 12 of the deadliest mercenary warriors with the names and attributes of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals are pitted against each other in the 12th Zodiac Tournament which takes place every 12 years.

During this rendition, each warrior of the 12 warriors is asked to swallow one of 12 poisonous gems, which will begin to kill each of the 12 warriors after 12 hours. To be granted any one wish of their choosing, the winner must retrieve all the 12 gems from the other 11 competitors before the deadline (12PM, December 12). It becomes a merciless battle where survival is crucial at any means.

This series starts as such as a slaughter fest, in which one hero is the focus, then seemingly dies.  But soon it turns out there is a lot going on behind the screens, and with a very unlikely winner...

Nice stuff!
