Editorial Reviews

Volume 1 -A TV series about a doctor during the Edo period who uses his Acupuncturist skills to both cure and kill. Dr. Baian is essentially a good man who accepts the money he receives for killing the bad so that he can heal the sick who can't afford it. Authentically details the street life during the Edo period these stories are street level and often take place in the bars and brothels of Edo. Volume 2 -From Tokyo Shock! His name is Baian, professional acupuncturist and assassin! A needle deftly inserted into the human body can bring relief and healing. For the defense of justice and honor -and for the right price it can also bring instant death! Based on the stories by Shotaro Ikenami, Baian the Assassin features tales of murder and deceit, jealousy and revenge, all set in the backdrop of corrupt samurai lords, ruthless merchant princes, fawning geisha, and deadly ninja. Volume 3 -Baian Fujieda is a very popular and trusted acupuncturist who always has a long line of patients. But there's another side to Dr. Baian. He's also a professional hit man who secretly assassinates evildoers. Volume 4 -Baian is offered an assignment by his motojime, Otowa, for more money than he's ever gotten before. But he hesitates when he realizes that his target is Kikuemon, a motojime from Osaka, with whom he has a history. As the story unfolds and alliances become clear, Baian may have to assassinate someone in order to protect another.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very strange series. June 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
If you don't freak seeing slant eyed people dressed funny and speaking in a language you don't understand while they walk around a strange country slicing and dicing each other up for reasons you don't always catch, You might like this series. I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baian: A Stealth Assassin November 18, 2009
By msjr68
Description: Using his knowledge of acupuncture for both good and evil, Dr. Baian considers himself an asset to his community. He is a murderer, but he claims to take money only for killing wicked people. Set during the Edo period, this series takes place largely in brothels and bars, capturing a sense of the street culture during that time.I have really enjoyed this series thus far, the last episode that I seen was vol.#4 it was a full length movie, best episode so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars arrrgh bad disc June 27, 2010
By Trinity
Verified Purchase
My wife and I started to enjoy this series
with Disc One
and loved it

only problem
Disc 2
screwed up....not with scratches or anything....just the digital copy is a mess

Disc 3&4 were ok
but out of 7 episodes....we only got to watch 5

The only downside is Baian basically has one kill move with a needle
fortunately it is really well done and that doesn't really detract from it

I only gave it 3 stars due to the screwed up Disc and I bought it new from Amazon
