In Kyokutei Bakin's classic Japanese epic novel Nansou Satomi Hakkenden, eight samurai serve the Satomi clan during Japan's tumultuous Sengoku (Warring States) era. The Edo-era samurai are the reincarnations of the spirits that Princess Fuse mothered with a dog named Yatsufusa. In Fuse Gansaku: Satomi Hakkenden, the female hunter Hamaji comes to her brother in order to hunt Fuse. Thus, the karmic cycle of retribution that began long ago with the Satomi family begins anew.

Everybody knows that dogs are a man’s best friend, am I right?

They are cute, intelligent, affectionate, and loyal until the very end. Now what does that have to do with the movie Fuse: Memoirs of the Hunter Girl?

Fuse (pronounced “foo say”) is the story of an energetic hunter girl named Hamaji who moves from the mountains to the bustling city of Edo after the death of her grandfather. Hamaji is taken in by her older brother, who is also a hunter himself. Shortly after arriving, Hamaji is greeted with a rather gruesome site of bleeding dog’s heads put out on display for the entire town read more

I had a lot of fun watching this movie, it kinda reminded me of Princess Mononoke. :')
(No spoilers.)

Story: 9/10
(Read the actual plot on MAL for more info)
Hamaji, a young girl hunter living alone, gets a letter from her brother living in edo, to come and help him with hunting, Hamaji goes to edo to help her brother out and ends up meeting Shino, a very beautiful guy with shiny silver hair, and she runs into him a few more times later on trough out the story. In this movie there are 'Fuse' part human, part dog creatures that eat the orbs from humans, when beheaded read more

For those who are impatient, my simple review would have me say that i found it a mixed bag. I really wanted to write two separate reviews for this -an unbiased one and a personal one- but that's quite tedious and im not sure MAL would allow it. Anyways, i'll try to keep this short and simple.

Going into the film, i really really wanted to like it - I really did. And that's likely why i felt a bit disappointed. The simple plot of the story sees our lone heroine move into edo to live with her brother and to help read more

‘Fuse: Memoirs of the Hunter Girl’ is the fantastical brain-child of Masayuki Miyaji – an assistant director on Spirited Away - yet is also a work inherently dependent on many other historical writers and creators, most notably the author Takizawa Bakin. A recent anime TV series adaptation of his most famous work, the epic Nansō Satomi Hakkenden, was highly derivative of – and, in my opinion, somewhat insulting to – the source material. Fuse, on the other hand, seems very playful, reverent and effective in its adaptation of the same novel’s premise. Not only does the film pay it homage, it also directly references it read more

Anime: Hakkenden: Touhou Hakken Ibun
Also based off the hakkenden novels. The eight half brothers who are now reincarnated in a different time are gathering together (in coincidence). Unlike this movie, the hakkenden anime series doesn't have as much romance--more friendship, family bond stuff.

Anime: Hotarubi no Mori e
Dramatic anime where the main female protagonists gradually fall in love with a masked white haired male, though not necessarily fully human. Both anime focus on a mythological aspect and the "forbidden love" of the female and male protagonists. Great art for both anime and great story plot of a bittersweet romance, though Hotarubi no Mori e pulls more on your heart strings, the similarity and uniqueness of these anime prove they are both a must watch.

Anime: Saraiya Goyou
Here is the land of the samurai , and life in Edo is not easy for some ones with exceptional characteristics such the past always tries to catch up the present, but still the similar atmosphere in both with some differences and the major one can be the aspect of the main characters ( in fuse : he's a werewolf, but a normal human in Saraiya Goyou ), and for sure : both are a nice show, enjoy.

Anime: Samurai Champloo
Both anime's plots are from the same time period. Both have to do with Samurai and strong female leads. Similar humor and overall great character driven stories. 
reportRecommended by Moon_River
Anime: Uchouten Kazoku
Whimsical tales of animal-human hybrids surviving in the human world, avoiding being hunted by their enemies. Despite the lighthearted nature of both series', the two manage to convey significant emotion and tell meaningful stories without getting too heavy-handed, all while exploring the relationships between the hunters and the hunted.
