Bone’s Samurai Movie Sword of the Stranger

The Sword of Stranger castWow. This movie has left me nearly speechless. There are scenes in it that are shocking, jaw-dropping, amazing…if you haven’t seen this movie yet, and you like action movies, with a good plot, solid characters, and the best action sequences I’ve ever seen in an anime, then beg, borrow, steal…er, do whatever you can to get your hands on it.

And what did come is probably one of the most underappreciated anime of the past few years.
