Synopsis

The story is set in the Sengoku period. A rounin called Nanashi (meaning "nameless") saves a young boy named Kotarou at an abandoned temple. Kotarou has no family, is pursued by a mysterious militia organization from China, and hires Nanashi as his bodyguard. Amongst the men who pursue Kotarou is a man called Rarou, a skilled warrior with blond hair and blue eyes. He obeys an old man called Byakuran and is a member of the Chinese militia. Unlike his companions in the militia, he isn't serving any Emperor and just wants to fight with the strong.

Thunder Kings review nr.3: Sword of the Stranger

When I decided to watch Sword of the Stranger my expectations were set pretty high and after watching it I can gladly say that they were completely fulfilled. I expected good story set in interesting period of Japanese history and great productions values that studio Bones are known for, all of this were there and even more. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the review of a fine piece of art that Sword of the Stranger is.

The Story 8/10
I was always interested in asian culture and history, it fascinated me as a huge history nerd. It was something different read more

There are movies that you will watch once and never again. There are movies that are simple casuals you will rewatch occasionally or by chance. And, last but certainly not least, there are movies made from diamonds that you will watch anytime. Movies that you may even watch right after you finished watching them.

And here, ladies and gentlemen, we have Sword of the Stranger. A film that personally lives up to the latter kind of films I mentioned above.

I admit at first, after I finished watching it, I was at loss for words and I wished -still wish- that I'd watched it earlier. Yeah, read more
