Shigurui: Death Frenzy

It’s been over a year since I posted my first impressions of the Shigurui anime. From rereading that post I can now say that Shigurui: Death Frenzy is all that I expected and a whole lot more, it provided a entertaining historical anime, with a thick plot and subtle dose of action that was a lot more than most people (and their stomachs) can manage.

Irako Seigen – gets my vote for the badass of the year award

Shigurui is just what I needed, an adult anime ripe with blood, gore, sex, rape, deception, infidelity, love, heartbreak, more madness, nipples, friendships, madness, cruelty and revenge. Sick of the cuteness overload?…retarded ninjas? paper thin plots, crappy animation and countless drawn out series? Looking for a short, to the point series that you can sit and watch in 2-3 sittings and not feel like you are wasting your time? Shigurui is that series…..just remember this series is for adults only…..and a few adults might not be able to handle it.

I wonder what happened to his mouth?

I wonder if there ever will be a continuation of this series, I hope so as I’d like like to know what eventually happened to the main characters Fujiki Gennosuke and Irako Seigen.

  1. yeah, was very good for a second i was wondering if there was second series as we never got to see irako fight fujiki in their current forms. I also wonder what happened tot he dude with the Extra length on his smile. lol.

  2. Just stumbled on this page (stumbleupon) and it looks like a nice anime – however there doesn’t seem to exist any subs of it at all. How did you watch it? Without?

  3. @ Tamte I had this problem initially, there is ahard to find subbed version available via torrent, after you download it play it via VLC media player and subtitles via video-> subtitles -> load English subs.

    If you have any problems finding the subbed torrent drop me a line via my contact page and I will try to help

  4. Hello again – just wanted to mention that it seems an English translation has been made by A-E & Saizen, for future reference if anyone has the same problem after checking this out.

    Thanks for the recommendation

  5. Hello there

    Mr. Jamaipanese I was wondering if you could provide me with a link for Shigurui English subtitle; hence I searched for it and had no luck :/

    Thanks in advance

  6. @ Hanzo, sorry for my late response.

    Just checked a couple torrent sites and this series is now easier to find now. Give it a try and let me know if you fnd a good quality one.

  7. Woah this looks awesome. Remember a manga movie called Ninja Scroll? Based on your description it looks raw like that. I will defo get it. If you have seen any of the below samurai movies how would you rate it against them?

    Samurai Champloo
    Seven Samurai
    Peace Maker Kurogane

    Also, do I need to watch the first season or can I jump straight into this one?

    1. I’d say it’s similar to Samurai X but still has many differences. I love the music, artwork and how the story itself was told. It wasn’t straight forward kindergarden stuff, if was advanced and deep, not many anime like that around anymore.

  8. To anybody who likes this piece of shit. You have to have the lowest standards for animation. Isn’t animation supposed to be OH I DUNNO, ANIMATED. Animated this piece of shit wannabe cartoon isn’t. It shouldn’t be classified as animation. Call it a collection of still screens, with a camera rolling over them.

    I know. This piece of shit is the art of animating without animating. I am glad i only wasted not even 10 minutes of my time on this shit.
