The story unfolds during  Sengoku-era in Japan  Kotaro, a young boy who is hunted by a group of swordsmen from Ming Dynasty China for mysterious reasons. Among the group is a fearsome Western fighter named Luo-Lang, whose only desire is to find a worthy opponent.

This is my first anime that I am reviewing. I watched this movie around 6  years back.  When I was about to watch this movie I really don’t have any expectation. But it was more than what I could be expected.  It makes me speechless. After watching this anime movies this became one of my favorite movie that I ever watched.

Well, whenever we think about any samurai anime we obviously think about Asian culture and I know most of the people love to watch samurai in action. The story is straightforward where a ronin agrees to protect a child on his journey.

During the movie time, you start to understand this epic tale without any confusion. When there’s half you completely understand the plot of the movie. Which is great since most of the action movie has many characters that make confusion for viewers to understand but this movie makes very easy for viewers to understand. This movie shows what is perfect timing, the time is divided for each character is according to their importance which is great. It shows many climaxes that make you watch this movie ahead.

This movie is one of my best anime movie that I ever watched as I already wrote the post about it. Top 10 anime movies. The animation is amazing, awesome graphics of the environment, characters and every thing you could possibly ask. I gave it a full star because the animation of this movie is possibly the best that you can get from the action movie that time. The sword fight in the movie is just freaking awesome, although they don’t have kind of different angle view just simple and sober. But more realistic than any other samurai movie.

Well, I watched this movie in the sub since I don’t like the dubbing. But I also saw the dubbing one and it is good and fits good for each character. Well, it is really annoying when you hear two different languages but they managed it quite well. The sound of sword fighting is again great to hear along with every voice in the environment.

Overall-Must watch
