Ok, this is an anime series but deserves to be included in my "Best of 2009" list because it is just awesome! Imagine the Kurosawa and Kobayashi films with the Takashi Miike

About this movie

Wiki

Based upon the historical short story Suruga-jou Gozen Jiai from one of Japan’s most prolific authors, Nanjo Norio.

Two damaged warriors wear the scars of a twisted and violent past. Bitter rivals for the secrets of their master’s sword and the right to his daughter, these samurai inflict wounds on each other that would destroy lesser men. The final chapter of their saga unfolds within a brutal samurai tournament, a gruesome contest arranged to satisfy the bloodlust of a cruel tyrant overlord. The disfigured legends of the blade must summon the strength for one last battle – a final lesson in the artistry of violence where nothing is more beautiful than the kill.

The Complete Series Set includes:

  • 24-page booklet with interviews, historical notes and in-depth story outline
  • Marathon Play Feature
  • Actor and Director Episode Commentaries
  • Production Artwork Galleries
  • Textless Songs
