4.0 out of 5 stars ZATOICHI TV SERIES, VOL. 6: EPISODES 22-26 September 1, 2007
Format:DVD
For those who cannot get enough Zatoichi, welcome to Tokyo Shock's release of the final volume of the first season of the TV series. This 6th volume completes the entire first season of the television series. The TV series lasted from 1974-to-1979, and each season varied in the number of episodes filmed. They are as follows: SEASON 1 [1974] 26 episodes; SEASON 2 [1976] 29 episodes; SEASON 3 [1978] 19 episodes; and the final season, SEASON 4 [1979] 26 episodes, for a total of 100 episodes. This was a great TV series, and fans of the films will enjoy them immensely, as many of them are just as good as the film releases. The films are in the usual box format [Aspect Ratio: 1:33:1] that was the norm for TV shows at the time in Japan. [Stars: 4.5]. The episodes are as follows:

#22: "SONG OF THE FATHER AND SON." In this episode, Ichi meets the typical corrupt yakuza bosses one is all too familiar with by now. These bosses are schemers and cheat a man out of his family and home. It is here that Ichi involves himself as he has been befriended by this family. In order to protect the daughter of this man, Ichi comes to her rescue. However, there is another character who adds an intriguing twist to the film--and this samurai who actually has the main role in this particular episode has a major connection to the daughter. [Stars: 3]

#23: "SUICIDE SONG OF LOVERS." This is a very, very good drama. Moreover, the cinematography is just beautiful. Do not expect too much action in this film, however, the drama more than makes up for the action. I personally liked how this film opened up with a beautiful shot of the rough seas and the falling snow. In this episode, Ichi meets a traveling female Shamisen, who also happens to be blind.

4.0 out of 5 stars If You Like the Film Series... March 23, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Volume 6 of the Zatoichi TV series wraps up Season One, and I have been very happy with the episodes thus far. They are exactly like the Zatoichi film series except that they are in full-frame TV format, and last about half the running time of an average Z film. Not surprisingly, many of the stories are lifted right from the films, or are at least very similar. But the Zatoichi series follows a definite pattern anyway...the discs have no quality issues, although the boxes don't hold the discs very well. My copy of Vol. 6 had a loose disc, but it played fine. If you're a fan of the Zatoichi films, you gotta have these; I hope the entire series is eventually released.
