Ten years have passed since Kabuto of the Raven Tengu left the town of Sado. He now returns to find the king of the land dead, and the kingdom run by an evil sorceress called Tamamushi. Utilizing his training and mystical powers, Kabuto battles to rescue the princess Ran and her bodyguard Kazuma. Fighting against machines and deadly traps created by Jinnai, Tamamushi's Gadget Master, Kabuto must draw from his memories of the past to find his inner strength.
In a futuristic and wild west-inspired Japan, there are only two rules: the Number 1 rules the world and only the Number 2 can challenge him; these ranks are worn with pride in the manner of headbands. In these harsh times, Afro is a samurai who is on a mission for revenge – an evil gunman killed his father to become the Number 1, and it’s up to Afro to take him down in a shower of blood and entrails. He has mastered the art of the sword and become Number 2, but many others want to hold his title and the title of Number 1 for themselves. With competition and sword fights at every turn, can Afro finally exact his revenge?
If you went looking for a good feudal style anime and were dissapointed by Raven Tengu Kabuto, I highly suggest you cleans your pallet with Afro Samurai. It's violent, sexy and has none of the cheese that Kabuto seems to revel in.
Jubei Kibagami is just a wandering swordsman minding his own business... until fate lands him in the middle of a battle with the terrifying Devils of Kimon! Now the fate of all of Japan lies in the hands of a vagabond samurai, a deadly female ninja and a perverted old monk as they take on an enemy who is, literally, immortal.
Raven Tengu Kabuto is a poor substitute for Ninja Scroll. If you want massive gore and blaitent sex without the bad 80's hair and ninja who apparently fly, go watch Ninja Scroll, the father of all these Feudal-period anime.
