    Shigurui - Epic Samurai anime (Not for kids)

    First episode was good
    Secound was as well

    I bet most people on this site wont know it or get whats going on

    Shigurui

    Alternative title:
    シグルイ (Japanese)
    Age rating: Adults only!
    Genres: Drama, Historical


    Posably one of the best looking animes I have seen
    Also its not like ofter anime (this ones not a biright and color full)
    Think along the lines of Samurai X only less color

    In the 6th year of Kan'ei. Tired of the Suruga martial arts tournaments and eager to see some blood, Dainagon Tokugawa Tadanaka orders his men to host a sword dual to the death for his enjoyment. The lucky contestants turn out to be one-armed Fujiki Gennosuke and his blind opponent Irako Seigen.

    Just as the match is about to get underway, the story rewinds several years to show just who these characters are and how they got their grievous wounds. We learn that Gennosuke was one of the major figures in the Kogan-ryuu school of fencing and that Seigen attempted to defeat the Kogan-ryuu students before eventually joining the school as a pupil himself. Talented Seigen becomes a favored student of Kogan himself (a genius swordsman, but dangerously senile), even surpassing loyal Gennosuke in terms of respect and status. Without giving away too much, Seigen and Kogan have a brutal falling out and Seigen is expelled from the dojo. Seigen and Kogan become mortal enemies, and each have fairly understandable reasons for wanting to see the other dead.

    The story is compelling, with intriguing characters and dramatic events, but it's the art that really stands out with this series. This series is graphic, with stomach-churning anatomic detail. It's bloodier than "Koroshiya Ichi" (the basis of Miike's infamous "Ichi the Killer" movie). Unlike "Koroshiya Ichi" the gore isn't really gratuitous per se, and it's not "all blood, all the time"; "Shigurui" just doesn't pull any punches when it comes to showing what happens when motivated killers swing extremely sharp blades into soft, pink human bodies.

    Well theres only one bit in the secound ep
    But its tastefully done (ie you only see boob)
    But other than that its pure samurai stuff
    ie - Theres a bit where two swords men go into a stance with no openings (even bokkens can kill) and the judge calls it a draw
