One hundred years after their deaths at the hands of a former colleage, six legendary holy warriors are reborn to seek justice against the teammate who betrayed them into the hands of an evil god. Based upon one of the most popular video games of all time, Samurai Shodown is a sprawling feature-length saga of reincarnation and revenge, featuring some of the most spectacular battle sequences ever animated! Join Charlotte, Wan Fu, Nakoruru, Galford and Tamtam as they search the feudal province of Edo questing for their lost comrade, Haohmaru, and their sworn nemesis Shirou Amakusa. Will the followers of the divine light triumph over the forces of the dark, or is the course of history destined to repeat itself? Before their hundred-year journey has ended, six samurai will prove that the only thing stronger than their holy blades is the steel of their wills!

I had high expectations for Samurai Spirits 2 aka Samurai Shodown 2 being a super fan of the arcade games. Well, it just shows that a great story (as far as fighting video games is concerned) in the hands of the wrong people just turns into a pile of rubbish. I was not expecting Street Fighter quality, but something at least as Fatal Fury. It is equal or worse than Art of Fighting anime... I won't waste time describing what went wrong about this anime, because EVERYTHING is wrong. Avoid at all costs.

The second anime attempt over SNK’s extremely popular Samurai Shodown fighting game franchise is without a doubt, a big step forward in every direction. The quality of story, graphics and fights has been greatly improved, compared to its predecessor Samurai Shodown The Motion Picture, and as much as some people were disappointed of Samurai Spirits 2, I find the product being quite good and enjoyable. Surely, it’s not the best out there, but it is still very decent.

(Story and Plot) Probably the first thing that we should mention about the story is the fact that it is finally following the game’s original plot. Something read more
