  Not fast paced, but tells a great story

I bought this as I was looking to increase my HD anime collection and this looked good.

The story as the synopsis will tell you is about two samurai at odds with one another - one of them a terribly gifted ronin out to make his fortunes and the other a highly skilled trainee in a high profile martial arts school.

The adversay begins when the ronin sweeps in looking for an easy fight and gets more than he bargained for, a struggle for him to become accepted and dominate this prestigious school of martial arts.

The good:
The ambience is brilliant, sounds of the cicadas as well as the colour scheme used to highlight facial features and gore and keep the backgrounds faded and out of the action so you dont have thousands of colours thrown at you at once.
The voice acting and plot was enthralling however this is not fast paced and episodes can go buy without so much as a sword strike or much dialogue.

The bad:
As a blu-ray this was disappointing, the colour scheme however great does not suit blu-ray as the softer paletted colours are just as vibrant on DVD quality rips.

Slow paced drama with some particularly disturbing scenes of a sexual nature which although add to the intruige, some viewers may find this offensive and unneccesary.

In my honest opinion if you want to view this and are undecided between a DVD rip and BLU-RAY and money is an issue, go DVD however if like me and you dont care then buy it anyway! for an anime bluray this is fairly cheap.

  A Masterpiece

This has to be one of the best anime's I have ever seen it's a great story it's all about two students and which one will be the air to the Gennosuke Fujiki style, It has some amazing fight scenes, but be careful it has shockingly realistic graphic violence and nudity.

The story isnt very long and is quite slow as to be exspected for a true life samurai story average visuals are not up to blu ray standard the story is good but a bit controvertial with a lot of blood and gore at times not for the light hearted also sexual scenes and nudity at times overall 12 episodes and the story is not that long but ok 4 out 5 stars as it does work well
