This is one of the best series I have seen in a good long while. 'Samurai 7' ranks with the likes of 'Cowboy Bebop' as one of the most essential anime to own. The story, while not an exact retelling of the movie 'Seven Samurai', remains true to the spirit and characters of Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece and sets it in a sci-fi environment with amazing mecha and a lushly detailed world. The characters a brilliantly realized and distinctive and they all grow over time. The story is brilliantly written. This series explores the true meaning of honor and the heroes exemlify what it truly means to be a samurai. The plot is also exciting and boasts many fantastic action scenes. The quality of animation is top-notch and features an almost seamless blend of 2D cel animation and 3D CGI animation. You just have to see it to believe it! The music is great too. The score features a great blend of traditional Japanese and Asian music along with modern music. And I love the opening and closing themes. As with any Japanese motion picture, watch it in the original Japanese. The Japanese actors match thier characters perfectly, from the dignified Kanbei to the rough and tumble Kikuchiyo. The English performances just do not measure up. Great writing, excellent characters, superb music, astounding animation and top caliber acting (in the Japanese version at least). "Samurai 7' lives up to its forebear and stands as a modern classic.

The Way Anime Should BePosted .I would recommend this to a friend
Really all I can say after finishing this series is wow. The more I watched the more I was blown away. Once I began watching I could not resist waiting to throw in another disc and continue. This anime series stays true to Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai while also reinventing it for a new generation.
