Average Rating

Masterless samurai Akitsu Masanosuke is a skilled and loyal swordsman, but his naïve, diffident nature has time and again caused him to be let go by the lords who have employed him. Hungry and desperate, he becomes a bodyguard for Yaichi, the charismatic leader of a gang called "Five Leaves." Although disturbed by the gang's sinister activities, Masa begins to suspect that Yaichi's motivations are not what they seem. And despite his misgivings, the deeper he's drawn into the world of the Five Leaves, the more he finds himself fascinated by these devious, mysterious outlaws. (Source: MU)

マリズ

Character-driven historical drama from Ono Natsume. Definitely watch if you like ronin tales.

JoAnneTheRed

Not your average samurai/gang story. Drama and slowly built friendships drive the plot, with beautiful art and amazing music adding to it.

coldwaffles

A slow start that transforms into one of the best period pieces in anime.

sickvisionz

Interesting show. Slow burn for sure, don’t expect samurai action. I love the art style. Any anime that looks “different” catches my eye.

Stuart111

A great historical drama with great pacing, a unique visual style, and compelling characters, most of whom get great exploration.

Cestus

Despite a rather convoluted plot and some questionable character writing, it is a well-written character piece and a fairly engaging story.

HopbeeK

Unconventional art, but vivid characters with their own back stories
