Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The broadcast series Samurai Gun (2004) is set in the mid-19th century, when the Edo era was coming to a close. The son of a Japanese man and a Western woman who were murdered, Ichimatsu is a one-eyed ne'er-do-well who seeks vengeance as assassin Samurai Gun. Although he's a member of a cabal opposed to the Tokugawa shogunate, Ichimatsu insists he doesn't want to kill anyone, even in the name of justice. But he does. The thugs in the Shogun Preservation Squad put some evil plot in motion that usually involves the torture and/or murder of young women; Ichimatsu charges in, blows the bad guys away, and returns to hanging around the local taverns and brothels. Mindlessly violent and misogynistic, Samurai Gun is not a series for the squeamish. (Rated TV MA VSL, suitable for ages 17 and older: graphic violence, violence against women, profanity, sexual situations, torture, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

In 1860s Japan, a special breed of samurai stands against the Shogunate, armed with superior strength, speed, agility… and guns! Welcome to Samurai Guns, a blood-drenched tour of bushido’s twilight. Morally ambiguous "heroes," razor sharp dialogue, and hair-trigger violence make Samurai Guns a slam-dunk hit!

3.0 out of 5 stars One Odd Anime November 14, 2005
Format:DVD
I like Samurai Champloo, Bebop, Trigun, Elfein Leid, Last Exile and like said before this doesnt even compare to any of those. Its graphic quality is odd, its like they intentionally did it a less quality version of anime, but only on some parts. They seem to shift back and forth between good quality drawing and poor.

There are great moments in it, but then theres moments were it makes you sigh, because it really didnt need that line or what not. For ex "I am Samurai Gun" He says it just about every episode right before killing someone, i personally think its un realistic and kind of stupid.

Well thats all the bad now to the good. The characters are easy to like and each have their own, so far, interesting story. The fighting is pretty good for the most part, exciting to watch and good animation, most of the time. Some parts the characters just have great lines to make up for the bad ones they say sometimes. So its kinda of evens out.

In the end this Anime is all gonna depend on whether you dont care too much about specifics..like graphics and animation and some of the stupid things they say. But its got its good moments that most people will find enjoyable if not great. Hoping the Second Dvd gets better, its still enjoyable though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just "another" samurai-related anime... August 13, 2008
Format:DVD
It is the beginning of the industrial revolution, and feudal Japan is in turmoil. The ruling Shogun are wielding their abusive powers to instill fear and dominance over their oppressed subjects.

A group of Samurai have banded together, and, with the development of new weapons and new technology, they have both the will and the hardware to stand up and fight.

I know, many of you are thinking... another "Samurai" anime right?
Well, this one is different. For starters, the anime focuses on our main character, Ichimatsu.

Traumatized by the slaying of his family and forced to watch as his sister was being raped and then slain, Ichimatsu is bent on revenge.
Although touted as a killing machine, Ichimatsu doesn't like to kill but in his mind, he needs to fight back.

In the first episode, three murderous brothers are masters of many female prostitutes of different ages (young and old) and when they try to escape, the brothers enjoy the slaughter of them.

During this era, we learn of the "Samurai Gun". Samurai's that have special uses with technology and a high proficiency of using a gun.
And in this case, Ichimatsu's alter-ego is "Samurai Gun" and takes down those who are corrupted and murderous.

But in episode 2, we learn that there are more Samurai Gun's out there other than Ichimatsu who are also fighting the good fight.

Episodes 3-4 explores another comrades helping Samurai Gun in battle against a group that is ordered to eliminate them.

As for special features, viewers will be treated with clean opening and ending animations, outtakes, production and character art galleries and production notes.

"Samurai Gun" has a Batman and a Shadowhawk feel to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Am Samurai Gun November 2, 2006
Format:DVD
Samurai Gun should not be taken seriously. People expecting a typical samurai anime with sword fighting or historical accuracy will hate this series. There is NO sword fighting and the historical content is all make believe. This might be the only anime with samurai characters that use guns when fighting against the enemy. Taking place in a time period resembling feudal Japan, a group of assassins known as the, Samuari Gun

hunt down criminals and exterminate them. The Samurai Gun team consists of a school teacher named Daimon, a female singer named, Kurenai and a cafe worker named, Ichimatsu. Damion is usually the ones that gives out the orders to the team, they discuss plans of attacks and usually succeed.

It sound all good and dandy but the funny part is that most of the bad guys only have swords and bows to fight off the Samurai Gun. So they don't stand a chance. I was cracking up in one of the scenes where a bad guys shot arrows at Ichimatsu, but he caught the arrows with his hands. The bad guy tried to shield himself with the bow he was using while Ichimatsu, pulls out his pistol and blasts the bady away. The Samurai Gun team for the most part have this unfair advantage through out the series. The stories follow a cookie cutter formula like this: the bad guys are trying to steal something or are killing innocent people, then the Samurai Guns confront and kill them off. Each episode follows this same formula.

Even though the episodes were formulaic and predictable, I loved the action sequences filled with bloody shoot-outs. But it's not all blood and violence, the pacing is well done with flowing dialog and beautful artwork. All the characters and scenic areas look great and the animation is top notch (anime movie quality).

3.0 out of 5 stars SAMURAI GUN IS HERE July 11, 2006
By Sesho
Format:DVD
In the mid-1800s the Shogunate that had ruled Japan for hundreds of years was beginning to decline, for the most part because it had isolated itself from the rest of the world to such an extent that a lone American ship shooting off a couple of cannons could be used to ramrod anything the US wanted out of Japan. While isolation can keep traditions alive, it can also cause an inbreeding of technology and ideas that lead to stagnation. As the Shogunate continues to cling to power it uses any means necessary to stop dissent, including murder, oppression, rape, and imprisonment. Standing against this political evil are the Samurai Guns, a mysterious group of warriors who embrace the future, even down the fact that they use pistols instead of swords to do their fighting. Ichimatsu is its most brillant operative, even though he has grown tired of killing, even if they are evildoers. But he always ends up on the missions his contact gives him. He's not alone. There are also two other Guns, Daimon and Kurenai, who help him out. They are kinda like pre-superheroes because of the fact that during the day they hold regular jobs but when called upon, they don their costumes and go out to play with serial killers, and psychotic minions of the Shogunate, which has formed its own "Anti-Samurai Gun Squads" to hunt down and destroy the Samurai Guns.

I enjoyed the "feel" of this show for creating a spaghetti western like atmosphere, even down to the Clint Eastwood-like Ichimatsu and the musical score taken from Ennio Morricone. But it's a little too early to see how good this show is going to be. The animation is a little crude but I think this is more to give it a particular look instead of being cheap.
