A young boy and his dog find themselves the target of the Ming: a foreign dynasty that will stop at nothing. One day, a quiet and solemn warrior crosses their path, and becomes irrevocably connected with the two. A deal is struck and the warrior agrees to take the boy to a remote, Buddhist temple, where a kind monk is waiting to care for him and the dog. Unfortunately, the Ming have sent their elite, and they will test their strength, courage, and quality every step of the way.Written by
It follows the same style of action, drama and legendary aura like sensation as in Samurai Champloo or Samurai X.
The graphic is amazing and the music score isn't too far behind.
Still what really gets you about this anime movie besides the high paced action is the showdown between your classic Nippon samurai master and a barbarian with god-like skills in sword wielding serving under the emperor of the ming empire (in his search for the elixir of immortality).
So, if you like anime, really cool sword-fights and a jade empire sort of atmosphere then you're in for a treat.
