About Samurai 7 Complete Series Classics Blu-ray

Samurai 7 the Complete Collection Classics contains episodes 1-26 of the anime directed by Toshifumi Takizawa produced by Studio GONZO.

Set in a futuristic world that has just witnessed the end of a massive war, scores of villages are terrorized by Nobuseri bandits. But the Nobuseri are no normal bandits. They were once Samurai, who during the war integrated their living cells with machines to become dangerous weapons now appearing more machine than man. Absolute power corrupts, and their reign of terror is increasing its hold on the countryside. But one group of villagers has had enough, deciding to hire samurai to protect their village. Kirara is a young priestess who travels to the city seeking out protection. One by one, she encounters brave samurai that the war has left behind. These men of skill and valor are each unique and not without their quirks. But can they come together as one to defend the helpless village?

Never a dull moment. Great fantasy retelling of a classic.

by

A fantastical retelling of "The Seven Samurai", combines elements of several archetypes: the older master swordsman, the young novice, the loyal soldier-friend, the brilliant lost soul, the regretful coward, the impersonator, a circus performer with a secret past; a young priestess, an old female sage, ambitious amoral merchant, murdered emperor, wounded veteran, helpless peasants, and many more. With flying fortresses, hidden worlds, and the ultimate testing, what more can you want from only 24 episodes?
I'm not a technical expert like some but the characters are great, the motion fluid, the coloring nice and the continuity seamless. I've owned it on DVD and now I'm getting the Bluray.
