I picked up the first disk of Samurai 7 the other day. Well, I convinced Stacy to buy it for me. Anyway, I’ve seen a bunch of Akira Kurosawa’s works before and have loved’em. Having seen the original Seven Samurai and The Magnificant Seven I was curious to see the anime remake.
I must say, I’m loving it. I love the whole idea of the show. I’ve only seen the first four episodes but I sat down to watched the first one, was intrigued and ended up watching the last three on the disk.
The whole idea of futuristic samurai battling cyberneticly enhanced robots just appeals to me. It has some wicked awsome scenes of samurai battling space ships and other fight scenes.
This is definately one that I’ll be buying more. Highly recomended.
