Early Reins features six beautiful women on a train en route to Sunshine Hill in the early 1800s. When the train is highjacked by robbers and the soldiers on board are caught unawares, another surprise is in store: these lovely ladies can fight! The heroine emerges as Margarette, a young woman determined to become a sheriff although she is somewhat lacking in experience. She gains plenty on this trip, however, and the ragtag team of Western warriors joins forces with another passenger, Spencer, to fight some nefarious bandits and guide the train to safety.

Nowadays we tend to see a lot of anime series not get a proper ending after a one or two cour run. This can be mostly chalked up to anime being really expensive to make and it just not being worth the time and money spent on a full adaptation versus a shorter series that serves more as an appetizer for the manga or light novel or what-have-you. There might also be the, albeit rarer, case of anime original series that start and are never given a proper ending for various reasons.
Early Reins takes the best of both of these worlds and is a 2003 read more

Early Reins in a groundbreaking word!

It is an innovative anime, westerns animes are rares, we're talking about Japanese anime that does not have the habit of speaking his stories in the West.
I'm not a fan of westerns but the story was well told, I liked it, the Japanese knew enjoy the theme.

The artistic part was excellent, have realistic scenarios and rich in detail at the epoch, especially the interior where the details are more visible and realistic.

Lost a little here,missed more involvement and choosing appropriate music, we have so many good artists, could have used better and more elaborate songs.

Highlighting the innovative history and read more
