Labyrinth of Flames

Labyrinth of Flames

Galan is a failure of a samurai who is down on his luck, until one day, the unexpected happens: a princess of a foreign country presents him with a sword. To his delight, he accepts it, completely unaware of its past and its secrets. Shortly after, strange events begin to unfold, causing both humorous and ecchi situations for Galan to survive through, all the while protecting his mysterious sword full of secrets.

Short ecchi elements in Samurai: Hunt for the Sword and Labyrinth of Flames really makes them alike. Both of them are about young samurai who are surrounded by girls and trouble, but in the end they somehow deal with it. However, Shinjuro looks and acts more intelligent than Galan.

Love Hina

Love Hina

Keitaro Urashima is somewhat of a failure. In order to fulfill a promise he made to a girl fifteen years ago, he has tried time and again to get into Tokyo U but has never managed to pass the exam. However, fate smiles upon him and he ends up working for his aunt, managing an all-girls dorm! Living with the feral Kaolla, the timid Shinobu, the sake-loving Mitsune, the blade mistress Motoko and the punch-happy Naru, can Keitaro keep his focus and keep his promise? And will he ever end up meeting that girl from his past?

While Samurai: Hunt for the Sword doesn't feature quite the same caliber of frenetic humor as Love Hina, you'll find the intercharacter relationships to be equally amusing. The main characters in each series have a past that comes back to haunt them... in very different ways... but that doesn't stop them from putting the moves on a woman... or a few!

Rurouni Kenshin

Rurouni Kenshin

In the revolutionary Meiji period, Japan is undergoing enormous political change. It is a time when vagabonds and terrorists will use any method to prevent the modernization of their country, even if it means trampling on the innocent in the process. In such a time, Himura Kenshin, a wandering samurai, has dedicated his life to protecting the weak and desperate peasants from those who would oppress them. However, Kenshin has a dark past which threatens to destroy the values he is fighting for. When he meets his new friends Kaoru, Sanosuke, and Yahiko, and tries to build a peaceful life with them, events conspire against him. Can Kenshin overcome the demons within and without, and finally ensure the peaceful future that Japan deserves?

Rurouni Kenshin and Samurai: Hunt for the Sword take place very close together in the history of Japan, each featuring a main character who is somewhat reluctant to fight with all his heart. That changes, however, when the past comes back to haunt them. Great shows, worth every minute for the wonderful characters and excellent combat animation.

Tenchi Muyo! and Samurai: Hunt for the Sword are both series about humble young men with great latent power and the women that fawn over them. Both of these shows feature terrific character designs and heavy doses of comedy to balance the combat and sometimes-sparce dialogue.
