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.

Kaze no Yojimbo is mystery and light action sorta show. It revolves around the main character playing two factions against each other while trying to uncover clues.

[*]Not action or romance heavy. More of a drama and mystery.

[*]The animation itself feels a bit low budget but I feel like that adds a certain charm to it's old school vibe.
