Editorial Reviews

Mugen is a buck wild warrior- violent, thoughtless and womanizing. Jin is a vagrant ronin- mysterious, traditional, well-mannered and very strong as well. These two fiercely independent warriors can't be any more different from one another, yet their paths cross when Fuu, a ditzy waitress, saves them from being executed when they are arrested after a violent swordfight. Fuu convinces the two men to help her find a mysterious samurai "who smells of sunflowers." And their journey begins.

This is a wonderful way to watch this series whether you have seen it already or not. The price point is comparable to completing the series on DVD, however you will have twice as many discs, and will have to wait longer(the DVD releases have a head start).

The UMD has excellent PSP presentation. When you have selected Video, UMD on the PSP menus, you are treated to a series themed wallpaper, upbeat trip hoppish music, and action sequences playing in a small window.

Once you enter the UMD, you get three trailers which is nice. They range from mecha, to thriller, to bizarre comedy. They all look and sound great, but the widescreen shows have full screen trailers(4:3 and with black bars on top/bottom and left/right).

You get your usual two audio tracks with subtitles available, and both are excellent.

The image quality is excellent and really shows how well animation works on PSP. This series is in a widescreen format originally and looks like they nailed the PSP screen format perfectly.

If you have 1.5 firmware you might notice this, but with 2.0 firmware, the transition from the UMD menu to the actualy show is glitchy. The series name is supposed to slide down and fade to black, but it freezes with 2.0.

I love this series, but Geneon's prices are outrageous. They have long ripped us off with over-priced DVDs and they are doing the same with UMDs. Why would I pay over $10 for two episodes?
