After watching just one episode of Shigurui I can already say that if the quality of this anime stays at such a high standard then this is one I will enjoy. I like medieval, samurai, historical, action anime with excellent stories and so far this year I have had two treats in Claymore and Guardian of the Sacred Spirit. I could not find much translated information on Shigurui but anime.fansub.tv had this information at a series synopsis;
“One-armed Fujiki Gennosuke and blind Irako Seigen will fight each other in this match. Both are disciples of Iwamoto Kogan, who is known as Japan’s greatest swordsman. Each of them are determined to prove himself the successor of Iwamoto’s school. However, there can only be one champion.” read more
It’s for adults, its bloody, it’s got great music, animation and sound effects…and don’t forget Samurai!!!….I’ll be watching lots of Shigurui in the weeks and months to come.
