How to Get a Girl into Anime, 29 December 2003
Author: Tara from United States

Ronin Warriors was not my first anime experience, but it was what interested me in the genre. At fourteen, my group of friends had been trying to peak my interest in anime through films like Ninja Scroll and Akira. Great films, but not the best way to get most girls interested in anime.

But that same year, I discovered Ronin Warriors on TV. It was action-packed, but not bloody. And the guys were drawn to look very attractive. I immediately got into the show and started watching it every day it was on. It had gotten me interested enough in anime that when Sailor Moon took over its time slot a year later, I kept watching.

My time with Sailor Moon is best left to a different review.

Watching it again on DVD with my current love of anime makes me realise how cheesy the series was, but I can still understand why I liked it so much. I will say that the show is better as Yoroiden Samurai Troopers, but not as funny to watch.

The premise is simple, an evil force that had been previously conquered is taking over Japan/the world and the only thing that can stop him and his four warlords are an extremely knowledgeable woman and five teenage boys with magical samurai armor. Add in cute kid. A fun series in either language, get the DVD that has both.
