"It's great"
5 stars"

The flow of this anime captured my attention from the very beginning, right down to the very end of volume one to say the least. Not being a hardcore anime person myself, I had the opportunity to see it with fresh eyes, like a child seeing something for the first time. This had me wanting more.

It's music and beautifully designed artworks are in itself amazing and simply eye catching. The main screen had me tapping my feet to it's undeniable groovy beat, that seem to put my whole body in a trance regardless of my personal tastes in music. This created a space for the story to choreograph it's dance, while the audience/myself waited eagerly for it to begin.

The story and cinematics of this anime move so fluidly, it is done in such a way that leave you no room for boredom and all those moments of hoping on your return from the kitchen, you won't have to catch the 1900 programme on channel two weeknights, but somehow you end up watching anyway.

I believe the creator of this anime intended his work for this volume, to be innovative and contemporary which he achieved successfully. I don't know much about samurai, but at the end of this volume I sure wanted to be one. I give this anime a big F…for Freakin Awesome. Brilliant piece of artistry in it's genre of art.


Mugen's a buck wild warrior - violent, thoughtless and womanizing. Jin is a vagrant ronin - mysterious, traditional, well-mannered and very strong as well. These two fiercely independent warriors can't be any more different from one another, yet their paths cross when Fuu, a ditzy waitress, saves them from being executed when they are arrested after a violent swordfight. Fuu convinces the two vagrant young men to help her find a mysterious samurai "who smells of sunflowers." And their journey begins. This is a story about love, friendship and courage . . . . NOT!
