Samurai 7

Apr 14, 2018

Samurais are cool. Mechas are also cool. Deflecting bullets/lasers is cool. Oh and samurai being equally matched against mechas is also very cool.

That is what the production team thought when they decided to adapt 7 Samurai into anime, unfortunately they thought that they also had to transform it into something entirely different.

Itching for some samurai action? Watch Sword of the Stranger instead, it's 1h 38 min long and a way better experience and use of your time.

What really killed Samurai 7 was the pacing, beginning was super slow and ending felt rushed, otherwise the show had some interesting ideas and concepts (like mechanical samurai and shikibito) too bad the show does nothing with said content.

Story is decent, hoped more character deveopement less running around.

Animation was intersting, at times there's some excellent animation, but 90% of the time it's just decent.

Sound is good, some traditional Japanese tunes and some newer ones too.

Characters fell to the way side, Ayamaro became an interesting person towards the end, the 4 interesting member out of the 7 die and generally everytime there was a character who could have had more, the show moves on quickly.

6/10 story
6/10 animation
7/10 sound
6/10 characters
6/10 overall
