Well, let me first say this is my first review so bear with me!

I found this anime i this site and after looking all over the Internet and not finding it I spent 20 bucks and bought it.I found it to be a great buy! I really enjoyed the story and the main character.

Story:10
It kept me wondering what really happened in the small town 15 years ago. Then just when I thought I figured it out something new would show up and keep me guessing.It had several "small pieces" you could pick up along the way and fit together.


Art:7
Sadly its art was a great read more

BORING !!! Story gets dragged out after only a few episodes and there is very little action. The action consists of mainly still pictures with sound. Opening song is annoying as hell. Animation was good and sound was fine. I just lost interest because it was like watching Columbo, but instead of Peter Falk, it's David Schwimmer as Columbo. 26 ep collection can be found for less than $10.00. What does that tell you?

The pacing itself is fairly slow but it always gives you enough to keep you interested (at least me anyways) and doesn't give away so much your disappointed. However by the end it builds up really well and had a read more

Kaze no Yojimbo is a re-imagined tale based on Akira Kurosawa’s movie Yojimbo, the story of a ronin that enters a village only to find it controlled by two opposing gangs, which he decides to play against each other. I have yet to see the movie so this review will not make any direct comparisons. One thing that is clear however is the atmosphere, which despite taking place in a modern setting, could easily fit a samurai or western story. The strong protagonist with no name that wanders in to stir up the community, the rivalling families that strive for power, the thirst for revenge, read more
