Storyline

Nemuri Kyoshiro, a youthful and cynical ronin with unparalleled skill, is approached by both sides in a game of corruption, ambition, and double crosses. The leader of the Kaga clan, who thinks he has killed his smuggling partner, fears that the shogunate will discover his illegal activities. He learns of evidence that will prove his guilt. Meanwhile, his partner is not dead, and, assisted by a master of Shorenji boxing, is looking for revenge and for his loot. The Kaga leader sends the beautiful Chisa to enlist Nemuri's aid. The unexpected happens: the hard-bitten Nemuri falls in love. Can he protect her, topple the criminals, and avoid the boxer's deadly skill? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not so good first episode in a long running series
12 August 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Nemury Kyoshiro was one of the most well know chanbara series in Japan. With Raizo Ishikawa who died at 37 years old.

I have a huge deception when i see this movie. When you compare with the first Zatoichi or another chanbara of the time, you find this one very boring. But unlike other series like James Bond or Zatoichi for example, the better have to come.

Watch for the other. As the series evolve, the film are better. (sorry for my bad english)
