There is no ‘soul’ in Bright: Samurai Soul Honestly, this is not worth an hour and twenty something minutes of your life; you can find something much better than that and no, I am not saying this because watching this for that time with that kind of an amazing animation gave me a headache, but because of one simple fact, there is no soul in Bright: Samurai Soul. The whole story feels as if it were written by a group of 10-year-olds for some writing competition.  Although, I feel that even kids will be able to make a much better story. Bright: Samurai Soul is your usual the good vs the evil, with some magic and some first class terrible writing. Even if you try to follow the story, there is absolutely no story for you to follow: 19th-century Japan, Japan is in the constant state of war and everyone is used to it. The story takes place in a brothel. Izo is a ronin that protects the brothel. One day, an elf-girl is sold into this brothel and it turns out that she is special, which immediately becomes the main story conflict: a group of bandits attacks the brothel. What will happen to an elf-girl, who is about to be sold into sexual slavery. In addition to the unthinkably bad story, you have characters, who have no souls. They feel as if they were some things, or something; they just feel like some minor NPCs in some 3rd rate RPG and this ONA does not even try to do anything for the viewer to understand characters’ motives, to love them, or hate them. Honestly, from all the characters, there was only one somewhat likeable character and it was the orc. All in all, like I said, do not waste your time. Among horrible anime, this is one of the winners.
