The legendary epic reborn!

Based on Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa`s legendary martial-arts epic `Seven Samurai` the action-packed anime series `Samurai 7` offers an anachronistic spin on the film`s famous parable of vigilante justice. This time around, the story takes place in a futuristic feudal society ravaged by years of brutal warfare, where the lawless bandits terrorising the rural countryside are a terrifying mutant amalgam of man and machine. One particularly poverty-stricken village decides to battle the mechanical menace by hiring a band of nomadic samurai for protection, resulting in a ragtag assemblage of masterful swordsmen with their fair share of personality quirks. Atmospheric and stylish, `Samurai 7` does Kurosawa justice with top-notch storytelling and gorgeous animation rendered in a muted palette that evokes the source material`s black-and-white cinematography yet remains completely vibrant and visionary.
