As years pass, things change. So do anime. Once, most anime series that people watched were lighthearted series that for the most part concentrated on the fun. Now, many series are trying their hardest to be ambitious and be the next big thing. It is no way a bad thing, and from it spawns many wonderful titles, but sometimes one can get tired of it all.

So people look for things that are just plain fun to watch, like those Jackie-Chan movies. Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran delivers just that, in its short glory.

--Grade: 7, + 1 extra point for great characters and enjoyment: 8--

Leaving life to the wind perfectly describes Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran. The series follows the traveling swordswoman, Ran, and her partner Meow (or more likely, Miao) as they move from town to town, stumbling upon troubles and fortunes at the whims of fate and coincidence.

Story & Characters:
There isn't a semblance of a central plot, it's not particularly dramatic and its episodes are a bit formulaic. Perhaps it is this simple, and gentle approach to story telling which forgoes the dramatic and melodramatic that makes this series so easy to enjoy. It's safe; you know what to expect, and no pretentious philosophy lessons or read more

Rurouni Kenshin and Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran both are placed in the same time era. Both have good plots spotted by comic relief. The main difference is that Tsukikage Ran is more female-based (the main character is a swordswoman, as opposed to Kenshin, who is male).
Aside from being short, episodic series, both stories feature a strong, interesting lead woman who, along with a fellow companion, whimsically travel to different places. While Kino is more philosophically based, Ran is more action-adventure.
