Classical samurai film story arcs with fanciful animation and a killer kung-fu soundtrack, what more do you want?

A couple of episodes in, I'm finding this to be one of the best non-comedy series I've seen come out in a long time, more reminiscent of anime from the late 80s and 90s. A pulpy atmosphere that you can tell is heavily inspired by samurai, kung-fu and western film archetypes, with the traditional arc of setting -> reveal -> hero action -> consequences. You learn about the "problem", how the characters are associated with the problem, their inner-feelings and personalities, the mysteries keeping the problem from being read more

Law and Order SVU: Samurai Veterans Unit.

Right off the bat, if you liked Ruroni Kenshin you will probably like this. Even if you didn't, or are like "wtf is that?," I still recommend giving it a try if you are down for some historical action.

I would be very much surprised if many people were watching Onihei, because the description is fairly boring and the art for the poster of the series is pretty bland and uninspired as well. I picked it up because I though it was probably going to suck and I could tear it apart but that it had the read more

this is the most underrated anime of the winter 2017 season and it breaks my heart. This show continues to get better episode by episode. Now it is an anime geared towards a more mature audience which is honestly nice. Sometimes anime provide so much cuteness and fanservice that it actually hurts the story. Onihei has some very emotionally involved stories that may possibly bring you to tears based upon your life experiences. The main character is extremely likable and easy to watch. The show has a nice balance of humor, action, and great storytelling. This show also has a really core jazz score, kinda read more

I'm saddened by its current rating of 7.09. This anime deserves higher praise. If you're thinking about watching this show, I can't think of a better use of your time. Lets be real here, you're most likely on this site to find a good anime to lie down and binge on.




This site wants me to writ more but I have nothing else to say other than to watch this anime. If you don't want to, thats cool, just know you're missing out and that this is the underrated gem of 2017.



stop reading now, I'm only typing this to waste time, I'll give you some cool read more
