Synopsis:

With the rise of the Iron Age in feudal Japan, man and nature grow increasingly at odds. As mankind infringes more and more into the kingdom of the beasts, many of the elder animal gods begin to succumb to their rage, cursing themselves as they lash out at rural and urban settlements alike. When a young Ashitaka, hero of his village, is imparted with one of these curses after slaying a crazed god, he forces himself into exile to prevent further harm to his village. As he ventures out into the world, however, he discovers just how dire the straights have become - with man and beast ready to break into all out war, his curse becomes the least of his problems. As both sides teeter dangerously on the side of outright slaughter of one another, Ashitaka sets his own problems aside and, using his charisma and honor, seeks to quell the hatred before it gets beyond repair - but will he be in time or is he simply delaying the inevitable?

Samurai 7

Samurai 7

In an age when samurai enhanced their bodies mechanically, a great war broke out. After the war's end, these "Bandits" (having become mere robbers) have lost their samurai code and now rob villages for their rice and women. The peasants of Kanna Village are filled with despair and agree to hire some samurai to retaliate, but with only rice in their food stores and no money to offer, it seems that time is running out. Now, the villagers must set out to look for samurai willing to accept such a deal -- but are there still such men that abide by the samurai code, and protect the weak?

Perhaps this is just in my head, but the feel for both of these is very similar, and the storyline of both involves defending whats important. Well, both are good so give them a try.

Sword of the Stranger

Sword of the Stranger
  • Movie (1 ep x 98 min)
  • 2007

Kotarou is a brash young orphan in war-torn Japan, on the run from mysterious pursuers with Tobimaru, his faithful canine companion. Clueless as to why anyone would want him, much less imperial warriors from mainland China, a chance encounter with a strange wandering swordsman could not be more unwelcome in Kotarou's skeptical eyes – especially when the stranger has a secret past that has caused him to seal his blade. Forced by circumstance to work together for survival, the unlikely duo forge a tenuous friendship that is threatened all too soon when Kotarou's pursuers thrust the two into a dizzying whorl of clashing ambitions between men both big and small. Will the stranger manage to overcome his past and save them both from peril with his blade?

Both of these stories have male leads and are revelutionary to the anime world, princess mononoke brought to life by disney brought a real world to life in princess mononoke and Trigun does the same thing, maybe even better. Both  the main characters save a heroine from "Themselves". One from killing gasback and one from killing the leader of Iron town. It would take a long time to list all the similarities of these anime films, but the main thing to know is that they are both revelutionizing in the anime-american industry.

If, like me, you find Japanese spirituality and superstition intriguing then you'll surely enjoy XXXHOLiC, a wonderful series with great characters and humour and chock full of revealing information about Japanese culture. After reading about the beliefs behind the tree spirits (kodama) featured in Princess Mononoke I went hunting for anime centered around Japanese superstition and the Shinto religion; XXXHOLiC is what I came up with and I was not disappointed one bit.
