That wasn't bad at all. I wasn't expecting much from this anime but the first episode was reall good.

While watching it.. I've bought the wrong dvd lol

But I can expect this to be better not just a Samurai genre but a lot more

I actually found it to my liking. This whole Blend of futuristic cyper punk technology and the warring samurai error is just pretty unique and it fits well into the time and setting. I hope this series is a keeper.

Off to a good start. Now how will they turn a 3hour (?) film into a 12 hour anime, haha?
Such junk...

I'm also curious to see how they'll stretch it out for a full season. So far, so good.

Not the best start for an anime, but I quite enjoyed it. Let's hope it gets better.

Wasn't really impressed at all by this episode, although the future-tech/mech element looks interesting. Dislike the visual style so much as I'm not really taken in by the use of CG, not aesthetically appealing.
Love the design of the battle ships though, really cool.
Might continue with it, tough to say.

I think the idea of turning the bandits into machines was a terrible idea. For a story like this I think the deaths of humans are important.

Samurai series with mecha? /wtf face.

I am not used to the CG yet though. Pretty badass episode. "I apologize for the intrusion". >:)

That wasn't bad. I was nice to have the whole plot laid out in the first episode though. A lot of other shows makes you go "It's X episode but I still don't know what's going on."

Yeah I'm also not too sure how the machines will be integrated into the story in a meaningful way.
Time will tell, I suppose!

A great start I must say! Really interesting atmosphere and setting, I sure am interested to see what this anime will have for a story!

The whole mecha element is very off putting, not to mention the over use of blunt CGI...

I like the artwork actually and the setting. I can't say ive seen this sort of mashup between feudal japan envirnoment mixed with futuristic/steampunk/mecha before , so at least that's a pretty unique point at least in terms of the 200-ish anime ive watched thus far.

I was kinda confused/not sure how to take it when i was seeing those mecha with huge swords and samurai flying around in futuristic looking vehicles. Its again defintely an odd mashup but who knows they may do it right here. Wonder if they'll explain where this technology came from, from near the beginning of the ep it looked like aliens crashlanded on earth or something.

The samurai we've met already look pretty interesting.
