Editorial Reviews

In Akira Kurosawa's 1961 classic Yojimbo, a shrewd ronin comes to a flyspeck village and exploits the divisions between the local gangs; Hayato Date's anime series moves the story into the late 20th century. Tough guy George Kodama arrives at the two-bit mining town of Kimujuku in search of a man linked to a mysterious railroad accident 15 years earlier. Soon the town big shots are clamoring for his services. A police officer takes him under his wing; the daughter of a politician falls for him; the thugs he beats up worship him. The plot advances in fits and starts, which would be forgivable if George had the irreverent charm of Spike Spiegel or the concealed strength of Kenshin Himura. But he's so cool and understated, he's neither interesting nor appealing. The transfer to disc is sloppy, with numerous visual artifacts. (Rated 16 and older: violence, profanity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Another starter anime Just got confused about the plot. The drawing is a little different. So I might get the next volume to see where the series is heading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Sweet March 11, 2004
By joseph
Ohh man, this anime rocks. I saw it before it was released in America, so I don't know how the dubs sound, but at least the opening/ending song should still be in japanese. and if anything the dvd is worth buying just to hear the soundtrack. But for the anime itself. I loved it. The anime is loosely (in some cases very loosely) based on Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo. If you're in a bit of a scramble and you're not sure what to buy, get this.
