Samurai 7

Anyone else watching this?

A friend of mine who's been going nuts over old Japanese cinema discovered it and I've seen the first 16 episodes so far. For the uninitiated, it is an anime version of the classic Akira Kurosawa movie. It has been some time since I saw that flick, but this update has been entertaining so far. I would have watched more, but the DVD I rented containing episode 16 gave my player some real grief and I was forced to return the discs unfinished, giving me yet another reason to buy a new DVD player.

Cool This is freak'in AWESOME SERIES!!!!!!

I"m watching it! R U?

I love the way the author has blended the "old" with the new. Anyone seen the Original B&W film of the 7 Samurai? If you've seen the Magnificent 7, then you've seen Kurasawa's 7 Samurai.

This is a masterful job of depicting the village people, the water priestess & I love Komachi!!!! don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't seen it but what did you think of the "Scent of Battle" when it was finally revealed in the 3rd DvD? Wasn't that cool!!!

It also reminded me of the oppsite of the Adam & Eve story in the bible - First Eve fail then Adam. In this one, first - can't remember the guys name - "Man" fell then "Woman" fell to join him. That was really cool & the depth was really touching to me. This is why I love Japanese Anime!
