5.0 out of 5 stars ZATOICHI TV SERIES, VOL. 2: EPISODES 6-9 September 4, 2007
As with many of the TV episodes of Zatoichi, this one is outstanding. Volume 2 in the series boasts three magnificent episodes. Moreover, episode #8: "An Unforgettable Flower," is worth giving this volume 5-stars alone. Plus we have the late Mikio Narita on episode #6: "Pouring Rain." His performance in the 12th Zatoichi film "Zatoichi and the Chess Expert," make for one pleasant viewing. The 12th film "Zatoichi and the Chess Expert," has always been amongst my favorite of the Zatoichi films. Plus episode #9: "The Two Zatoichi's," is great; and even though it borrows a little from the film Zatoichi #11: "Zatoichi and the Doomed Man," I actually like this shortened version even better. And I do like ALL of the film versions. That's how great these 2nd Television episodes really are. [Stars: 5+] The episodes are as follows:

#6: "POURING RAIN." This is a very good episode. The late Mikio Narita [he died in 1990], makes this an enjoyable episode to view. Karakkaze (Mikio Narita) entertains us once again, only this time on TV. I have always liked his role as Jumonji in ZATOICHI #12: "ZATOICHI AND THE CHESS EXPERT." And in fact rank it right up there with not only one of the greatest Zatoichi films of all-time, but one of the greatest Samurai films of all-time. The episode begins with a prostitute who follows Ichi around. There is a reason for this. What is her connection to Ichi? And why does she wish him ill will? The film also has a side story going on dealing with the selling of women into prostitution: All through the greedy hands of the yakuza bosses. Moreover, Ichi begins to follow the prostitute who does not like him around to find out why she harbors such hatred for him. Yet, when the women finds herself in trouble, it is Ichi who comes to the rescue.
