Could have been so much better. You are left feeling slightly put out by the ending and throughout there is too much empahsis on the past.
Not at same standard. It is still very good, put lacking something from the prequel.
The music is as good as in Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal and the voices are as excellent also
Interesting angle on well-known characters. This look to the future gives more time to the development. The characters are done extremly well and very convincingly. There is excellent portrayal of the emotional pain and inner turmoil that the characterrs are going through.
If you were a fan of the TV series then you have to watch this, it's not really an option. It is very good. Embedded with the same sense of tragedy as Trust and Betrayal without the same level of violence.
