Product Description

Facing impossible odds and unavoidable sacrifice, the samurai know this battle will determine the fate of not only Kanna Village, but that of an entire nation. The final battle has arrived. It ends here.

Amazon.com

Samurai 7 comes to a spectacular conclusion in a prolonged battle that occupies most of the last three episodes. To protect Kanna village, Kambei and his mismatched band attack the Capitol, the newly proclaimed Emperor Ukyo's equivalent of the Death Star. The warriors perform gravity-defying leaps, as they slash through steel, deflect bullets, and split laser beams with their swords. The outcome is pretty much a foregone conclusion, although director Toshifumi Takizawa throws in a few unexpected twists. Samurai 7 is a baroque mecha adventure that offers plenty of over-the-top battle sequences for viewers who want a mixture of feudal and futuristic derring-do. But to pretend its meandering plot, stock heroes, and tinpot villains have anything to do with Akira Kurosawa's brilliant Seven Samurai is merely silly. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence) --Charles Solomon

Volume 7 concludes the spectacular Samurai 7 tv series.

It goes without saying that if you haven't seen the show from the beginning, this isn't the place to start. Go back and watch this show from the beginning. I wrote a pretty in-depth review for the first disc if you're interested.

If you've been collecting the show, there's no reason not to get this disc. However, another version of this dvd exists that comes with a box to fit all 7 volumes. As a collector who likes his DVDs to look as good on the shelf as on the TV, I would strongly recommend the version with the box as opposed to the version without.

Format: DVD
I noticed anime shows tend to be categorized within 4 categories: one's that are so popular that even non-anime fans seem to know about it(Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, Evangelion); ones that are popular but mainly in anime fan land(Elfen Lied, Vision of Escaflowne, Hellsing); ones that aren't that popular but do have their fans (Tactics, Gungrave, Texhnolyze) while others are just simply awful and nobody should ever watch them (fill in whatever terrible show you can think of). Samurai 7 to me is a popular show but it's maybe not as massive(or well-liked at times).

Here we are: the final battle. Ukyo has sent the Capital, a massive airship and hundreds of bandits against Kanna Village, leaving Kikuchiyo, Katsushiro, Kanbei, Kyuzo, Heihachi and Shichiroji as well as the village itself to fight and win. Not everybody will make it back home though.

Watching the ending to Samurai 7, I got the feeling that the show wasn't a mistake to start watching, yet at the same you're like "well, wasn't as good as I thought it would." The last volume that was really great was volume 4 which now remains my favorite after watching this one. Keep in mind this is the finale so everything is over-the top. Samurai take down huge Nobuseri with one swipe(or about 10) and jump to the next one so you kind of feel like "as if". However it is great action and the CGI really comes into its own here.

It's slight but where it falls flat is where it handles the characters. Throughout the entire show, the samurai never really got any development. Kanbei's the grump, Kyuzo is the silent bad***, Kikuchiyo's the big loud one and that's it. The only one that really gets the slightest development is Katsushiro.

Format: DVD
In the final volume of Samurai 7, an anime that had been wandering in soap opera melodrama and Phantom Menace politics, regains the sense of seriousness, risk, and action that made it great. Katsushiro, disgusted with Kambei for backing down from the new Emperor when he had the chance to kill him, has taken it upon himself to protect Kanna Village from the rapidly approaching Capital. As a measure of how his strength and skill has increased, he deflects a bolt of energy from the ship's main cannon...with his sword! Meanwhile, the cavalry is on the way as the other remaining samurai are making their way as fast as they can back to Kanna for a final battle with the always treacherous Ukyo and his now lobotomized Bandit army.

This final volume of Samurai 7 really pulled out all the stops and added an element of risk that had been missing since the big battle against the Bandits at Kanna Village. You just have this intuition that not all of the samurai are going to make it out alive. The human emotions on display here are not of the melodramatic sort that have plagued the last two volumes, but the reflections of honest human souls, whether it's the relationships between Komachi and Kikuchiyo or Kirara and Kambei. The action at times can seem like a big Hollywood production, but with a beauty and meaningfulness that it can never touch. All in all, a tragic and fitting end to a inconsistent but great show.

Not everything about this series was perfect and I never claimed that it was. In the end, I can't say that I was completely happy with how the stories were ended. In particular is one story resolution that the audience is completely robbed from seeing. In the grand scheme of things though, the primary story is wrapped up very well though it does leave the audience with a serious desire to find out what happens next. Universally praised, this is a series that every anime fan will want to see at some point in their lives and one that I would gladly recommend to anyone else looking for something good to watch.

Based on the original Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa, this remarkable series has a great story that builds on each of the characters. Similar to the original story, the seven are hired by a poor village (with only rice for payment) to defend against barbaric forces. The people pay the barbarians their produce to keep them from destroying their village. The Samurai accept their offer but accept only the millet (rice byproduct that the villagers eat) and nobly defend their village. Everyone must see this fantastic epic.

Samurai 7 has been a wonderful ride. The story has been engaging the whole way and I haven't been disappointed with a single volume. This dvd was no exception. I won't offer any spoilers except to say that the last episode seemed to fall a little flat to me, but not enough to detract from the series as a whole, and it stayed true to Akira Kurosawa's original 7 Samurai.
