If u dig samurais, anime, mind games, mystery and artwork
2 October 2008 | by thomas-1174See all my reviews

best anime ever. if u like samurai, experimenting artwork, blood, slow n great story telling and seriousity in anime - go watch this. - it's actually educational on a lot of aspects too-. i saw it for the first time, 4 days ago, i'm already in love. for the record, it needs to be said that i'm a HUGE anime-digger, what ever. so i'm picky.

GO WATCH! NOW!

for you other anime freaks, i don't know about you, but i like when people write what else they like to watch, to you know, to compare or what ever. so; i like: samurai champloo, cowboy bebop (movie, the series are just boring i think), blade of the immortal <3!(manga), uhm, Ghost In The Shell (the movies), miyazakis work and a lot more
