In a battle between an armed opponent and an unarmed one, does the armed opponent have an advantage? Not if the unarmed person practices Mutsu Enmei-Ryu.

Shura No Toki (Age of Chaos) follows 3 generations of practitioners of the Mutsu Enmei-Ryu UNARMED fighting style. The animation is probably the weakest part of this series but the fighting more than makes up for it, this is the most "technical" martial arts I've seen in an anime, without any of the "style", "blood" and "special powers" elements interfering with the purity of the art. This alone elevates this series above any other martial arts type anime offerings.

Story: I think the story is great because how it flows really. In this series they manage to pack so much into each episode without it feeling rushed at all. I really think they did well here because even though each episode was around 20mins it felt just right. The story was pretty good fitting these characters into history which I thought was really good the thing that got me was the 3 different generations, which I thought was awesome. Overall the story is really enjoyable but the last generation is the best. It kept me hooked.

Art: Ok, first let me point out that this read more

As someone who did karate and some other martial arts (albeit
unskillfully), for many years, I loved this show.

This series was a prequel to a manga about a modern day karateka (Karatepractitioner.) It has 3 distinct arcs, one around the beginning of the
Tokugawa reign, where the hero meets Musashi, one in the time of Iemitsu,
the third Tokugawa shougun, and one around the time of the Meiji rebellion.


Historically, there probably wasn't a roundhouse using martial art in Japan
till the 20th century, but if one suspends a bit of historical knowledge,
the martial artist and history buff can both enjoy the series. It's far
more respectful of read more

This, in my opinion is one of the most not known, yet the best anime that I've ever watched. I've started with Shura no Mon, and then towards Shura no Toki (in Manga). Soon after, I found out that there was an anime of it, and quickly rushed to my computer to watch it.

This anime is quite unlike most of the martial arts animes, since this is pure fighting. No magic, no energy thingys, etc.
This is one of the many factors that makes this anime one of my favorites.

The story has 3 arcs, all involving one of the most famous Japanese Samurais.
