Storyline

Set in an alternate feudal Japan where mechas and giant airships are a common thing for humans to see. With in this time period is a small village that gets raided by bandits during every harvest season. The villagers can't take it anymore, so they decided to send out some volunteers to the city to recruit some samurai to help defend their land. In exchange for defense, the samurai that get hired for the job will receive rice for free of charge. Since the village is too poor to offer any money, the only samurai who would accept their proposal would be the kind who are down on their luck. Will the villagers find any samurai who would help free them from being robbed by bandits? Written by J LeGault

Quotes

Kambei Shimada: How does it look?
Heihachi Hayashida: I think she'll fly for us.
Kambei Shimada: Good. As soon as the repairs are done, we'll head for the Capital.
Heihachi Hayashida: All right.
Shichiroji: Well, it might not be much of a warship, but it certainly is faster than that old wagon. It's too bad we don't have time to find something with defenses.
Kambei Shimada: The Capital isn't going to wait for us.
Kikuchiyo: So we're finally gonna strike?
Shichiroji: How many years has it been since we've taken on one of those airships? I'd say I'm nervous, but I keep thinking of what Gorobei-san would say if he ...

IFC should brink it Back
23 May 2007 | by tommypezmasterSee all my reviews

This show was my favorite and know what? it was only on for 2 years, whats up with that? all the good shows are on for a short time like Samuria 7, Donkey Kong Country (Show), Cardcaptors, Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Hamtaro and oh, lets not forget about Coconut Fred's Fruit Salad Inland!!

Instead, they put on the bad shows that are on every channel like CatDog, Baby Loonley Tunes, The Buzz on Maggie, and the rest of the baby clan. the good show have got to be brought back.

I mean this show is better than the Bad shows. Samurai 7 is a good show, The plots & characters are decent & original. CatDog failed to be that good.

IFC is really faithful now that there airing anime & DVDs are probably gone dunning it's cancellation
