Sword of the Stranger
Set in the turbulent period of Japanese history known as the Sengoku period - or the era of Warring states - this feature length anime tells the story of a nameless ronin, robbed of identity and title when the second shogunate falls into chaos. Wandering the beligered countryside of his war torn nation, the former samurai happens across a boy named Kataro, who's become the target of Chinese assassins, who seem to want the boy for use in some kind of mystical ritual. The nameless ronin can't let them take an innocent child's life, and soon finds himself on the most important mission of his career - and that his life as a warrior is far from over. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

    Great Movie


    This is by far one of the best anime movies that has been released within the past 10 years in terms of animation, sound, and fight sequences. While the storyline is not all too familiar, it is a little on the weaker side with supoprting characters not really backing up the main story very well. A little more characterization could have benefited this movie, but it is still worth adding to your collection and watching more than once.

    A wonderfully crafted samurai film


    While the plot is not exactly the most original one for the genre, it is executed remarkably well. This is some of the most gorgeous animation I have ever seen and the fight seens are masterfully choreographed. If you like wandering ronin, this is well worth your time.
