Best anime series ever
30 October 2010 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

When i've seen shigurui 1 episode, i was hooked. If you wont, then don't bother to watch whole thing - its not for you. This anime is really hard to follow, the story is jumping to past and present and in between... So you really have to concentrate on what is going on or even read out in the internet parts you don't get, ...but in the end it's totally worth it. This is one of best experience the anime can give you, and after watching anime 3 times or so and not knowing how this will end, I've read the manga and it's GREAT. And now I can't wait for the next chapter or the season 2 of anime... This anime is not for kids, nor for women, it's for people who admire Japanese culture and samurai.. Here you wont see stupid pop culture junk, like women samurais, or fast hitting katana to katana, as if that is the way of sword fighting. Katana is one-strike blade and that's how it is done here in shigurui. The story is slow but very deep. It's about concentration and will power. It's about overcoming obstacles and defending honor. Truly The best Manga and Anime ever, if you wont "get it" , that would be sad. And I just hate people writing bad reviews about this masterpiece, because they don't get it, because they enjoy watching stupid stupid childish pointless animes suitable only for children. There are only 2 superior animes really worth watching: Shigurui and Death Note. That is it.
