4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Vol. 1, July 3, 2008
This review is from: The Baian the Assassin, Vol. 2 (DVD)
In Vol. 1, you pretty much hit the story arc(at least what I have noticed so far. Still need to watch Vol. 3 & 4). I have to get this out of the way first before somebody writes up a review based on ignorance: IF YOU ARE EXPECTING NONSTOP ACTION, LOOK ELSEWHERE(go view shadow warriors, lone wolf & cub,etc)! If you do not mind a slow building drama where the action/assassination(minimal and straight to the point) culminates near the end of the episode, then give this series a try. This is not your hack and slash type jidageki. The basic premise is where Baian, an accupuncturist, is given assassination jobs by his motojime and is aided by his friend, Hiko. The 2 gather recon on how to take out their targets and they time their assassinations at the most critical hour. From this Volume, episode 4 is clearly the best one and i like it the most out of the first 2 volumes. There is alot more action in this than previous episodes as well. If you liked Volume 1 then you will like Volume 2. Again, dont expect this to be a free-for-all slash fest.
