A night to remember
13 January 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

'Day of the Samurai' seems to play as a counterpart to 'Night of the Ninja', and not just with the title. Where the former featured a bland adversary behind a ripoff scheme, this is actually a good showdown and an examination of Japanese culture. Plus, it's a field trip to the Far East. And Kyodai Ken actually functions as a substantive character this time.

. . . and the big fight goes down at a volcano!

Watching this after 'Night', the difference is like night and day (no pun intended). The backgrounds are fantastic and really sell the imagery of Japan (even if the character animation is mediocre). But that's minor; this thing's got action, evil ninjas and blood feuds. Just everything a growing boy needs.

9/10
