A Good anime if sadly unfinished
17 April 2013 | by (Faversham, England) – See all my reviews

I loved this anime and I liked its martial arts and fantasy elements and it had plenty of interesting characters plus it had a great storyline going back hundreds of years back to an ancient ninja clan known as the Hokage.

Recca is a young man who encounters a girl named Yanagi Sakhoshita and this meeting will set in motion a series of adventures for Recca and his friends both current and those made later.

The anime is very top notch and I liked both the subbed and dubbed versions of it. This was pretty cool though the manga of Flame of Recca told a much more complete story but this anime is still good and a good introduction of Flame of Recca at the very least.
