Uhhhhhhh y’know I’m happy this was made, but I really can’t remember what happened at the end of the day. Not bad, not remarkable.


Flawed animation and storytelling, but had a killer soundtrack and great main character.

A really nice passion project by a creator I love. Animation can be a bit off at times but it’s still a really decent show overall.


Good episodic samurai story with a great OP, give it a go if that’s your thing.


Nice police story for Edo times. OP and ED are great


driest samurai show i’ve ever seen
