Movie Reviews

Entertaining, if short

"The Samurai is a quick, funny, and entertaining one episode OAV. Right from the get-go one can see the 80's styling that remain as a mark from the time when the Samurai was created. The art style is definetly close to Ranma 1/2, though as an OAV the animation is considerably better. I found the characters to be for the most part very likable, and I got a few good laughs out of all of them. The action is ok, and though theres little plot this isn't really the sort of thing that needs one. Theres also a fair bit of nudity packed into the short running time, so beware if you dislike that or rejoyce if thats just your sort of thing.
With its 45 minute running time some may not be inclined to hand over the $25 dollors it costs, and I myself think that there are definetly better anime you could be buying with your money. However, I still recomend this to those looking for good and funny, though short, ride."
A Classic finally comes to DVD!

"This was among the first anime I saw in the original japanese and one of the ones that helped me see how much could be lost in tranlation. A young man stoicly follows the ancient forms in modern-day japan much to his fellows' amusement, at least until a pair of cute ninas begin ambushing him at every opportunity in order to reclaim a priceless dagger. When the girls discover his tendancy towards nosebleeds upon seeing the female form a whole new kind of ambush is unleashed! Will the dagger be stolen or will our hero hold on the sacred memento left by his late father? Tune in and enjoy!"

"Most likely part of a series, but a clear Ranma rip off minus the people who change into animals when wet. Hardly worth your time if not mildly amusing."
