A note on Shogun Assassin 2: Lightning Swords of Death
30 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an AnimEigo re-release of "Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart to Hades" which is the third movie in the Lone Wolf and Cub or "Baby Cart" series. As far as I could tell, these were the changes from the original movie.

1) The English sub-titles were removed and instead the Japanese was dubbed over with English.

2) The left and right edges were trimmed off to fit the image on a standard TV set. This is most obvious at the beginning where the title and related material gets cut off enough that you had to guess at what some words would be.

3) The color is excellent and it's apparent AnimEigo worked hard to clean up the original media.

The DVD runs for 89 minutes. Unlike "Shogun Assassin" #1 which combined elements from three of the Lone Wolf and Cub movies Shogun Assassin 2 is just one movie from the original series. As far as I can tell, nothing was cut.
