Really?! Well, I suppose it would make sense if they were horses with fake handlebars to simulate a motorcycle (replacing the reins, something like that), but... The opposite?! Really strange, hahaha! Also because they are samurai and all, you know... But it's okay, I still love Sengoku BASARA. xD

I haven't started the series yet but that scene does look obvious, even though the horse head looks lively..

Wow, and I had simply thought that the horse had weird antlers and exhaust pipes attached to it to make it look pimp.

God BASARA is awesome.


I always thought they were just props to make the horses look completely awesome. But to read that the horses are in reality motorcycles just with horse heads and legs. Man, Date's an afficionado of the west, complete with Engrish and Western props. Priceless.

With that said, Sengoku Basara continues to be awesome.

Darn it, I liked it better when I thought the horse just had motorcycle exhaust pipes and handles attached to it for no reason.
