So bad that it becomes good. That's exactly why I enjoyed watching it, for all the wrong reasons.

I don't know if there's a story here, maybe I didn't pay enough attention, maybe I was laughing too hard to notice.

They really did have Berretas in medival Japan for your information.

Really, for real, and gun handling fight schools too.

The art is.. absolutely amazing, no just simply spectacular - 10 second animations are 3 frames strung together repeating slowly, battles are so intense that it seems you've seen them two or three times in one viewing.

The sound is groundbreaking, with sound read more

If you asked your average anime/manga fan what the name Miyamoto Musashi meant to them, you would probably get answers relating to the historically inaccurate, godawful manga known as Vagabond, or any other work of fiction based off the "true story" of this great man. Eventually in your life, you may happen upon a true scholar that may know a thing or two about the world. That man will tell you all about the wonderful anime known as Gun-dou Musashi.

Story (10/10)
I would share a synopsis of the story, but it is quite literally too deep for you, and I wouldn't want to spoil anything. As read more

Now where to start on this show.

First of all, 10/10 for me, I loved watching this show, even if the subtitles that I used were probably fake.

PLOT- 2/10

This show is basically about a dual-wield gunslinger samurai named Musashi who battles a group of monsters known as the Ayakashi. Well, we call him a samurai because he has a sword, but he never uses it.


To put it lightly, the art was terrible. Some of the sequences that took place outdoors were photos taken of forests, rather than drawn. The animation, was...subpar, with a fight sequence involving a guy shooting a monster while slowly falling read more

One thing I've noticed is that there are many different types of bad. There's the "cheesy" bad (see Batman and Robin), the "incompetent" bad (see The Last Airbender), and the "embarrassing" bad. But overall, there are 2 main types of bad: the "true" bad (where something that is bad really does suck), and the "good" bad (where something is bad, but it's so bad that it comes around from the other side and starts to actually be GOOD). If Master of Martial Hearts best represents the "rrue" bad, then Gun-dou Musahshi best represents the "good" bad.

Story - 10/10
The story follows Miyamoto Musashi read more
