[Ended] Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls: More?! Really?!

Clearly, this is one of those anime that is made to show fan services. The story itself, couldn't be more typical for a "fan service animes". The only up side of this anime, as I see it, is the fact Rie Kugimiya plays a major role in it. I'd also give it that the style of censor is very unique and interesting.

Like Koihime Musou, the attachment of the story with real Japanese history is merely a convenience for them not to come up with characters and backgrounds for them.

The way this story ended, clearly indicated that they have plans to make a sequel. I can't believe a cheap ass anime like this would keep getting sequels while the grand epic animes like Guin Saga and Tytania get sacked.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 80 (Little bit)
Comedy: 78 (Little but not that great)
Action: 77 (Bouncy ink splatters)
Art/Animation: 82 (Interesting)
Sound/Music: 87 (Faylan's op, she's still great as ever)
Character: 71 (One dimensional)
Plot: 73 (Cookie cutter)
Ending: 74 (They want to make more?!)

Re-watch value: 60 (Could still be interesting)

Overall: 75 - Fan Service Show

Recommendation: If you've never seen one or are just interested in watching one fan service heavy anime, this wouldn't be a bad one to watch. Otherwise, I'd say this really doesn't worth your time.
