After falling in battle, the samurai Jin wishes to be reincarnated with an "invincible metal body"; thus he is reborn as a coffee vending machine in present-day Seoul. Each night, he continues his eternal battle with other samurai who have been reincarnated as otherwise mundane objects. But, one day, he meets Hemi, a girl who buys a drink from Jin's vending machine body. After many similar encounters, Jin realizes he has fallen in love with her. Will his love be able to reach Hemi?

Bizzare? Isn't that what you really look for in an anime?

This very short love story includes the few most important aspects of an asian life- the glorious, fearless warriors of the past and the modern technology ( aka the vending machine boyfriend.)

During one minute and forty four seconds, this piece opens up a really sweet love story supported by amazing graphics.

Enjoy! ^^

This anime is about a samurai, who becomes a coffee machine in his next life, but he still wants to fight, and one day he founds a girl and falls in love with her.
The story is really hard to understand, and it's full of meaningless scenes. For example, a coffe machine shouldn't be flying... I was like 'what the hell?'

The art was okay, but the closer scenes were drawn pretty ugly somewhere. I have to admit, the characters were cute and ingenious.

I think the most horrible thing about this anime was the sound. The way the samurais shouted was truly annoying. The read more

Coffee Samurai is a 30 minute short film about a samurai who ends up being re-incarnated as a coffee vending machine. Sounds weird? Well, it is, but that's part of it's charm, and there were some other things I liked about it as well.

The story is fairly decent, despite it's basic structure. Things move at an appropriately slow pace, and it ends up feeling somewhat longer than 30 minutes by the end. The narrative is also presented fairly well, with some nice moments sprinkled throughout. It starts off as just being weird, but quickly changes into a love story, which I thought worked really well, read more

Coffee Samurai... where to start?

Story: 7
Coffee Samurai is a 30-minute short with a truly unique idea. A Sengoku-era samurai wishes for an invincible steel body after he falls in battle, and in a bit of a cruel trick, he is reborn as a vending machine. Hemi, a college student, discovers that this vending machine is actually alive, and befriends him in her fascination. This eventually progresses to a bizarre love, and remains that way. The pacing is slow, but the idea is unique, and definitely charming. If you aren't interested in the story, then this anime doesn't have much to read more
