Hailed as one of the greatest anime of all time, this series reinterprets legendary tale into instant classic! With its futuristic but rustic atmosphere, well-developed characters, incredible CG animation and high production value, Samurai 7 breathes new life into Akira Kurosawa's timeless epic.
A war-ravaged country struggles to recover from the brink of collapse, with scores of villages suppressed by the Nobuseri. No normal bandits, the Nobuseri were once Samurai, fearsome warriors who corrupted living tissue with technology to become dangerous weapons. Now more machine than man, wielding the kind of absolute power that warps the soul, their reign of terror rules the countryside.
But one group of villagers seek their own salvation, sending forth Kirara, a young priestess, on a quest to hire Samurai for protection. One by one, she encounters brave remnants that the war has left behind. These men of skill and honor, each unique and not without their quirks, are all that stand between the helpless and the hated.
When I heard about this show being on Toonami I was a bit skeptical seeing as how well known it was, but...... it is still good and has not been on TV in years so the fact that people havn't wacthed it came as no surprise after all I only found out about it at Anime Club
