In the wake of a rebellion that shook Japan twenty years prior, Togame Hida, general director and strategist for the army, seeks to obtain the 12 "deviant blades" created by master swordsmith Shikizaki Kiki to help add stability and security to the Bakufu government. To aid in this endeavor, she looks to enlist the help of Yasuri Mutsune, head of the Kyotou-ryu school and hero of the rebellion. But when she arrives on the island where he lives in exile, she finds him dead, succeeded by his skilled yet slightly daft son Shichika. Undeterred, the two set off from the island in search of the swords armed only with Togami's sharp strategic mind and Shichika's powerful, swordless Kyotou-ryu.
both animes, the little prince and katanagatari, are about strong males who don't understand certain subjects.
The little prince travels across the globe trying to find his mother in the country she says shes in "heaven".
katanagatari is about a male who grew up with his father and sister training, and has not been taught things of the outside world, so he doenst feel bad killing women/children.
both animes made 48+ years apart, but the feel of the animes are connected. The little prince is 1H 25M and katanagatari is 12x50M. Regardless, I think If you like one, you should defiantly watch the other.
