Mille Fluer - One of the greatest shows I have watched!!!
Grasido - Great story
I thought it was decent. I like it more than death note. Good action anime
Robel13 - Review
Well told for a new version of the classic Japanese movie!
Entertaintment viewer - anime 5 star
this is a right animation about the 7 samurai team. also i know that samurai 7 already been aired on adult swim on late night saturdays only.
archman11bravo - A Legend Retold
This is a great anime of an old Japanese tale retold anime style. Must see for all. You'll be left wanting more.
er1berto - I am Samurai
Yo, funimation?!? Bring dragon ball z to iTunes. Is already on playstation network. Why not here.
dobaer - Engaging series, interesting environment
There is a lot going on, and the larger story unfolds during the course of this series. While not unique, the environment is interesting and the Samurai each have their quirks. The backstories of each are explored along the way to give a clearer picture of their motivations and how they became involved with the group.
[email protected] - Great story but way too expensive
Believe it or not.. you can buy the whole series on blu-ray disc for just $45 or so.. Why would anyone in the right mind buy this on iTunes?
afro samurai - i bought this today
im very disapointed in it i guess nothimg tops afro samurai get that highly recomended and if you like animes check the awsome vampire anime Hellsing
William Lee - Average......not great
The anime is not bad but the plot lacks the depth. I felt the pace is a little slow and it is not as captivating as other anime I had watched like Deathnote and Gurren Laggen
Jessticat - Loved it!
This one is now one of my favorites! It fulfills my visuals expectations and managed to keep me interested in the characters and their struggles. It has a mixture of comedy, action and drama which makes for a really well balanced story. I'm glad I picked this one up, and I wish there was more.
Cross_Breed - Very Good
Very good anime. I think that it is kind of refreshing to find a good anime that doesn't reek of excessive gore, sex, and language. I would also like to see Bleach and Death Note on iTunes. Click yes if you want to see Bleach and Death Note on iTunes.
toe iarock - I lost 4 pounds because of this
I watch it on my I pod at the gym I got so addictied i would be on the tredmill for like 3 hours at a time I burned through all 26 episidos in like a week it is a great show lots of action and excitement gigantic robots what more could you want from animay
Clark-Kent - Great Show, highly reccomend to any anime fan!! Great steam punk show.
I first bought the first two episodes when Funimation came out on itunes "just to get it". I never really liked it. But I decided to re-watch it again and I found myself buying the next episodes, and the next ones etc. This is an AMAZING series. The character development is astounding and the setting of the anime is superb. It is a great action and quite funny too. I high reccomend this to anyone who likes Miyazaki or steam punk anime.
AceJammer27 - Very good show
This show is (to me) probably the best and only anime show I watch and its got a very good plot.
Just wish Naruto was an Ipod show
jet 4000 - Petty Gewd
it was an impresive seres and I think it deserves a 4 because it had a good plot and charicters. Its only draw back was the setting i think the guns could be a little smaller to.
NaomiStar - An Excellent Anime
Samurai 7 offers a few twists and surprises while remaining faithful to the storyline and characters originally seen in Seven Samurai. It's a masterpiece anime, offering a unique, futuristic quality and...it's just so darn good. Recommended for all ages. Hey, we can all learn something from it!
CyberPixy - Not the best but still a good anime
This is not the best anime on itunes. Only get this if you don't like the other animes.
KyuzoCool - YES!!! so excited
even though I shovelled out an abserd amount to my the dvd i'm excited that my favorite anime show is on itunes. I really is the best i've ever seen. No abserd yelling like in Naruto, not weird manga facial expressions like in One Piece, just awesome anime!!!!
rabbitonwheels - Best Anime On Itunes!
Got the first episode and now i need the second!! The dubs aren't that bad, but still....
RedSky13 - An amazing anime!
I just so happen to like animes in english better than with subtitles. I know my friends do also. This is an amazing anime! It has good animation, a good story line, humor (a must-have), and a good voice cast. My favorite episodes are The Pupil (because of the young master) and The Journey (where three of the men have to dress up as women to fool the Nobuseri!!! I almost fell out of my chair laughing!). I would highly recommend this to anyone who hasn't seen anime to people who are obsessed with anime! It had me blown away! The price is fair for the episodes. You can't get them cheaper anywhere
else. (Unless you get used DVDs, but who wants that?) Thanks for putting this on here, iTunes!!!! (next please get Naruto, InuYasha, Bleach, Blood+, and Full Metal Alchemist! Please!!)
chrisqny - AWESOME
This series is awesome. I don't know why people are dogging it. The story is solid and the characters are likeable. You get to see the transofmation of a few of the characters which is awesome as well. If you enjoy certain shows like ghost in the shell or cowboy bebop then you'll enjoy this show
grows his own - You whiners are lame!
Okay people, for the ones who who can't live without the stupid subtitles: Get over it! Jeez, Isn't it good enough that you have the anime at all? ANY anime for that matter!? Blah blah blah I want the subtitles and Japanese dialogue blah blah... Shut up already! And how can you see the subs on that tiny little iPod Video screen anyway? Yeah, I can see them on the iPod Touch and iPhone, but, give it up already! My God! They should take the anime off altogether if all you people keep complaining!
Samurai 7 is great enough without subtitles, just as much as it is with them (even though I absolutely love Sean and Colleen). C'mon! Don't you just love it when Katsu screams: I am....indeed.....A SAMURAI!!! in episode 14 of the English dub? I sure as heck do. Heed my words people, for the sake of the four samurai and all they died for!!!!
Kikuichimonji - Pre-perceptions are great! ^_^
After watching the first few episodes on DVD I was impressed by this anime. The adept storytelling takes up after dynamic action scenes leve off. A superb series.
Darkness_21 - I love this show and so will you! >-<: Samurai 7
This is a good show for someone how loves Samurai's!
It's got alot of action, love, and firendship! Oh and you can't forget Funny!
I enjoyed the story line, its like slaver and the people, the rice crop people are wanting Freedom from the machines that the 7 Samurai and trying to kill.
Some times I wish I was in an animed cartoon...
My name in the cartoon would be...Um...Ari-san! What name would you pick?
HA HA! will I hope I help you in your findings of a good Animation! To iTunes: When will you put Naruto, Bleach, Blood plue, Cowboy Bebop, And Wolf's Rain, and Dragon Ball
Some of us would love to have them to buy, and all of the episode of the ones I listed!
thank-you Enjoy you buying! =D
Syranide - 10/10
I rate this to be the best Anime ever. Samurai 7 in my book is 10/10.
XoXRitsXoX - It's incredible
I came by this show on accident and only ended up seeing the end of one of the first shows and I was automaticly hooked. Samurai 7 is an addicting show that never gets old <3333 :3
Avacyn Ava - Amazing
The first time I saw this series was on a giveaway disk where I saw about 2 of the episodes. After that I began watching the series. It is simply amazing. The character relationships and how they develope, tons of action, and basically just many interesting points. I never saw the original 7 Samurai movie but from what I heard there are a lot of similarities. I recommend seeing this series for yourselves. very good plotline.
The Hedoren - One of the Best
Where to start? Excellent animation, engaging plot, beautiful choreography for the fight scenes... Even the English voice-work is top-notch (seems to be a habit with Funimation). I've seen the original "Seven Samurai" and frankly, I prefer "Samurai 7." The characters are given much more focus, so by the end I can actually care what happens to them. And the secondary storyline of political intrigue doesn't hurt! Really, a brilliant show.
(The music is excellent as well, something I'm always on the lookout for...)
carl.23 - Samurai 7: Taste Better than Chicken
This is THE BEST anime series ever. period. I first bought it in Japenese. Then I bought it in English. Now I'm buying it on itunes. Kurisowa plus animation? Only the best idea since Soichiro Honda invented the wheel.
otaku_samurai - Go for it!
This is probably one of my favorite animes of all time. Buy the episodes from itunes! The dvds are expensive, especially the special edition dvds (which woe-ingly I purchased). This is a great series! The action! The tortured romance! The ACTION!!! This may not be Basilisk, but its the next best! You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll constantly be yelling at your tv for more!!!
chrissteph83 - Dragon Ball Z rules
PLEASE put Dragon Ball Z onto i-tunes it is one of the most popular anime shows, and almost everyone would buy it
50watt - the pupil
It was the best samuri show I ever saw
rossauce - hey
i paid for the whole season but my connection was cut short so all the seasons that i didnt get to download was lost and i didnt get my collection which i paid for. i thought that was a little messed up.
Kagome-kago-no-naka - I love it!
I really do love this anime, and although it is quite different from the original film, it's great in it's own unique way! I'm so excited to see it now on itunes! And I think that this is a great start to put anime into maintsream, or at least accommodate us die hard anime lovers!! :wink wink, nudge nudge: more anime on itunes!
joocee102 - perfection
you gotta admit 26episodes for under 40 bucks that's a steal.And props to itunes on their starting anime downloads.And Samuri7 is one next to ninja scroll and berserk.Wait let me take the Berserk one back.Can't no one compare with Berserk
JakeAMc - Great series.
Well, I really enjoyied this series, it's a very dynamic story, that i'm very happy they bothered to expand on the original movie (which was live action). The animation is great, and, while alot of these jerks love to harp on the dubbing, the dubbing is pretty well done. I'd love to see them try it. It's not easy to do.
That aside, for those who'd like to "keep it pure" or whatever, you can spoil yourselves with the DvD set.
I don't really understand what's so bad about dubs, but i guess most of these 15 year olds would rather be cool and listen to it in Japanese with dubs then english, and look at the art and listen, instead of getting stuck reading letters blazing by on the bottom of the screen.
Anyways, I prefer being able to watch my anime whenever, where ever i want, DVDs are kind of cumbersome on a plane or train ride.. I'd say the ease of use by getting anime like this overweighs any factor of "bad" dubbing or "lack of subtitles". :3 Just a bunch of spoiled fans.
KayakSouth - Simply Amazing
While keeping the plot in an action oriented state, Samurai 7 also succeeds in creating real characters. Except for one, every character under goes some change that benefits the story and an unsaid friendship is created between all of them. A must buy for anime fans.
Mikakou - Great Work
This is a very good anime, and viewers who like Naruto will espically like this. It has a couple themes that younger viewers may have trouble understanding such as why Kirara was taken, but overall it is orinted twords people around 12 years old. It is a very good addition to any anime lovers collection.
Master Roshi - The reason for no subtitles
This series is amazing one of the better animes to come out in recent years. The dub job is good, but not he best out there, but if you ask most people english dubbing loses some mystique of what the anime is about, but these files are really meant to be played on an ipod video, with a three inch screen. Could you really imagine trying to read subtitles on a ipod video. I don't think you would because you would pass out from eye strain.
Also the likelyhood of their ever being japanese dubbed, with english subtitled anime on Itunes is very slim, because all the anime will most likely be supplied by US companies, that want to promote the dubbing they have done and not the original. It would just be strange if you have one choice on language and you are charging a cheaper price for the show than buying the normanl domestic DVD, to put the original track down instead of the one you put a lot of money into.
Lastly, this anime is great, Kurosawa estate gave the director permission to adapt the story into an anime, and it does lose somethings in the telling, but it is not trying to tell the same story. It is just trying to tell another person's adaptation through an animated TV series. This is also one of the first animes to be produced through high definition.
Tokwana - excellent series
Samurai 7 is an excellent series for most anime fans. Each of the seven samurai have there own deep personities that are revealed throughout the season, and while the translation from japanese to english of course lead to some....odd phrases....it doesnt take much away from the series. only complaint is that WE WANT JAPANESE AUDIO!
Fiasco93 - It's Awesome
This show is great just to put it simple. There are few things that I didn't like about it. Most of them were pretty minor except for the fact that the whole series is based on the 7 Samurai trying to protect the village. But other than that, this show is great. It has lots of action and an in depth storyline. I highly recommend it. I agree with a lot of the people here about getting new anime. iTunes should get more shows such as Trinity Blood(Great Show) and Blood +. I don't agree about the other ones like DBZ and Bleach. They're great shows it's just that they're too long and the price can add up. Bleach already has 122 episodes. For $2.00 an episode thats $244. Just stick to watching them on the internet or TV. -Cykonn
securitymonkey_fan - Well written, well directed, and well worth your purchase.
I hadn't really cared to watch any anime in a number of years because the writing of recent series just hadn't "captured" me. On a friend's recommendation, I downloaded this series and I was hooked from the very first episode.
You are introduced to the characters one by one as they are selected to form the "7", and the many sub-plots that develop along the way are riveting. The voice acting is top-notch, although a few characters are a little over the top at times.
There's not a single episode not worth watching. I watched nearly the entire series from start to finish in a few sittings and I was left with something I haven't had in a long time... a longing for MORE MORE MORE.
I fell in love with the story, the characters - even the villans. This is a series you can watch over and over again and take something different away each time.
cvc1968 - Not too bad.
I don't know if the anime giant robot treatment was the best choice for a retelling of Seven Samurai. It's a bit hard to accept the ease with which swords can slice up mechs. There are a few interesting twists on the original, but the ending lacks the solemn irony of the last scene of Kurasawa's masterpiece.
nfejkfhkjlsdjk - Itunes get This
ITunes this is a pretty good show but can u plaese download FullMetal ALchemist its Funimation so plz get it
ChristopherMusic - Excellent!
This is a brilliant re-invention of the original "Seven Samurai!" True to the original but entirely it's own story. Characters with character and a story that will have you watching the whole thing straight through!
horwitzvta - Awesome but a little weird
This show is awesome a little weird but come on its Japennese Anime. So if you are looking for a show with a good story and great action this is the show for you.
ninjavitis - Disappointing
The show is bogged down with the usual bad voice acting and lame character archetypes that plague the genre. This series does nothing to honor the classic "Seven Samurai" movie that inspired it.
wulfendraak - keeps you coming back, very good show
I don't have a conventional itunes acount, i a get twenty dollar a month allowence to spend on whatever i want in the itunes store, so obviously i couldn't download the whole season, I did it one episode at a time and not once could i stop myself from going back and downloading the next one. Excellent story line, excellent character development and excellent animation.
(One minor complaint though, episode 7 "The Friend" has no where near the degree of polish with regards to animation as any of the other episodes, not crippling, just frustrating)

Foxgirl - Great anime, price complaints bogus, and stop whining about English Dubs!!!!
Preach it VorlonKiller! yes the price complaints are very bogus to whine about to all the ones that are complaining about that. I don't know where your getting your figures from but Anime in General costs 2x more than your regular American cartoons. In General Anime Series like Samurai 7 in DVD's costs usually from $14-$19 dollars a disc. but the entire DVD set runs around $80 and $132 atleast if you get the collectors edition. So stop whining about cost! $40 dollars for digitial download of it isn't all that bad considering though it's a digital download.
But despite that, Samurai 7 is a very good anime and very well worth the watch since it's based after the original 1954 film Seven Samuai directed by Akira Kurosawa. After viewing the original this one has several similaritys yet follows it's own path to stay an original work all on it's own. And it does so very well. Though I've not heard the original Japanese for Samurai 7 the English dub is acted out superbly and isn't quiet as horrible as other english dubs. The original Japanese with subs would have been great to watch! I'd have loved it! But I guess we got to wait till Apple develops up their own container format before we can get japanese dub and some subs ;) (You Anime fans out their know what I'm talking about too lol.)
Tankmp4 - Well done... but not the peak
Many have discussed various + and - to the series but none together.
+: It is anime, is a very respectable representation of the original film, actually fleshes out the characters more than the movie. is cheaper than the dvd set either individually or boxed.
-: Can't get the Japanese audio and English subtitles, costs quite a bit more than other series,
But overall this series is awesome, especially the story though it doesn't follow the original to a t it does keep the essence of the movie.
Jacqke - Episode 23 fixed
In an earlier review, someone wrote that Episode 21 was actually being sent to buyers when they bought Episode 23. This was true, but the problem is now fixed. I contacted Apple, letting then know that there had been a mixup. They credited me with a new download and told me to wait 2 weeks before redownloading the episode. Today I downloaded it and it works fine.
nemuidegansu - Excellent Series - Dub is lacking...
Much is lost in translation and the voice acting is par for English dubs. Which means it's really pretty bad. I wish Apple would release things in original language with subtitles. Can't give it more than 2 stars as-is.
I rented the series from NetFlix and the DVD's are great. And I've pre-ordered the box-set from Amazon. It might be cheaper here, but you're getting an incomplete product.
265LY - not as bad as I thought
I origanly saw samurai seven a few years back using fansubs. I got up to episode 12 and it got liceansed so I stopped there. I never had enough money to get all of the dvds so I never tried. Now that itunes offers it I can finally afford it. The english dub is not that bad the voices actually go along with the characters. I have seen much worse dubs inital d comes to mind. So until iTunes gets it act together and offers anime in english and japanese with subs, this will do fine. I'm also glad they kept the widescreen asspect ratio I defenitaly was'nt expecting that for the price.
Abel_N. - Episode 23 has been fixed. reasonable price.
iTunes staff has fixed the issue of 'episode 23 == episode 21'.
I've bought the real Episode 23 (The Lies) to replace the wrong one.
Also, in response to comment that DVD is much cheaper, I really don't get it.
The price of DVDs in Amazon for the whole 26 episode (volume 1-5) will be ~2.5 times the price here.
wawawabahba - INCREDIBLE
this show is the most briliantly amazing masterpiece on itunes a must buy
Subey - One of The Best Anime Series
This a good series for anyone who likes anime. It has plenty of action in it and a love story sort of sprinkled in. Some people say it's bad because it doesn't give the customers the option to hear the Japanese voice actors. Well that shouldn't matter because it's perfect just the way it is. So if your looking at itunes for an anime series this should be the one to take a look at.
carR8cer - We finally get anime!!!!
Ive been waiting for anime to come out on itunes for the longest time and its finally here and what better way to start than with samurai 7, the animation quality is good along with a good plot and character development, all this allows for a great anime series that i highly recomend to any anime fan!!
Reeneebug - AWESOME SHOW!!!!!
well i gotta tell you one thing, i wasn 't in to any anime other than naruto. I bought this because a friend told me it was good, and after watching the first episode, i bought the whole season. this show is great and a must buy!
Youngfield - Samurai 7 isn't Samurai 7 with English.
Samurai 7 is an awesome series, however for one to truly enjoy it you should watch it in Japanese with English subtitles. The English subs are just that substitute. It feels as if they are just reading a script without emotion. I purchased the first episode in hopes that it might be worth my money. I would have to say go for the DVD's until itunes changes it tune.
YoMaMa562 - i love this show
it is so awsome buy it you will love it!
mickeychelly - I have to disagree...
...With the top reviewer. As English dubbing goes, Samurai 7 is not horrible to watch. It's just as absorbing no matter what language you watch it in. The art and music are beautiful and the characters bounce from being humorous to dead serious while still seeming real. Sure, it may not be the best anime out there, but it's 26 episodes, which means there is an end in sight, unlike some popular shows out there.
Hokie fan - This is show is the coolest ever!
This show is so amazing! The art work is beautiful and the plot is interesting! I used to watch it ontv when ever I could and now I can get it on Itunes! This ROX to the max! If you don't buy it your either crazy or you had fun things! It is just a fun tv series!! If you don't believe me the ratings speak for themselves!!! At least give it a chance and watch at least one episode! Your always fun re-viewer,
P.S. It's still awesome soonce again consider it! Have an awesome day!!!!
Mao Yenrai - Amazing show!
Excellent interpretation of Kurosawa, while funny and innovative enough to stand on it's own. Beautiful art and well developed characters make this a GREAT SERIES!
RedwoodTree5 - Price complaints are bogus
The complaints above about the price of the entire series are neither fair nor justified. iTunes is charging US$38.99. That's for ALL 26 episodes. On Amazon, the DVDs vary between $26-$59 for each *volume*, of which there are seven. To acquire each individually would be close to two hundred dollars. There is a consolidated box set, but even that is $79.
Unless you want to go the used DVD route, iTunes is by far the least costly way to own all 26 episodes. Please, no more complaints about the price based upon fictional numbers!
panson77 - awesome!!!
this is what i've been waiting for, we (anime fans) need more of this stuff, this is a great show and i just hope that movies are next...
Gronkey Kong - Impressive Samari 7
I've only seen the first 3 episodes and I'm hooked! There is inspiring character development, an epic plot that makes you wonder “how could they possible win against such a powerfully evil enemy force”, and I like the fact that so far there hasn’t been any explicit content (if I have kids someday I would be ok with them watching this series).
The story is moving kind of slow, but personally, I like that.
If you're an anime connoisseur, take my review lightly because I'm no anime expert.
ish'mael - siguend fumph
isch bein eign berliner, in english, : I am a jelly doughnut.... Samurai 7 put the filling in my tasty pastry of doughnutty goodness. gibinse mir das brot... bitte. dises erscheinen ist die scheib, die ich mein kugelbumsen sauge!!! oh ya!
Aika - Great show, bad cost
First of all, Samurai 7 is one of the most creative Animes to have come out in quite some time. Modeling itsself after Seven Samurai by the great Akira Kurosawa, this show manages to take artistic liberties while staying true to the inspiration. However, for $39.99 you could buy the DVD box set which features both dubbing and original audio with subtitles, lots of extras and goodies, and go home and rip your DVD with handbrake into .mp4
Thanks for the effort Apple, but the price is NOT right.
C009 - One of the Greatest
This is one of the best anime series I have ever seen. It has great action sequences and a great plot.
Finally itunes has figured out that they need to get anime.
Himmy Hames - incredible series almost incredible iTunes version
This is an amazing series that fans of anime and kurosawa will love. the encoding is pretty good, but one episode is repeated toward the end (lies is encoded as the rescue) of the series and I think that at least one is missing. However, this is a hard to find series and I think it was very much worth the ~$40 to watch it in it's entirety.
Uchihafan - Finally!!
Finally some Anime! Now all iTunes needs is Naruto, Trigun, and the like.
moongdss - Excellent series!
I can't recommend this enough if you missed the airing on Cartoon Network. A great anime with fantastic artwork, gripping story and superb characters. I agree with the other reviewers, it'd be nice to have a choice between dub and sub, but hey, it's here at least!
gv1229 - RE: Wounded's review
Akira Kurosawa was never an anime writer at all ... granted, this series is obviously based on The Seven Samurai film that he wrote, but to call him "one of the greatest writers of anime" is incredibly misleading. The actual writer of the series is Atsuhiro Tomioka.
drooble - We want subtitles!
This anime show is excellent, but most anime fans that I know, want to hear the original Japanese voice actors/actresses, which means we want subtitles. I won't buy this until I know I can get subtitles with the original soundtrack
just some otaku - Samurai 7 Power Owns
Samurai 7 is an anime for all ages. Though the subject matter may be a little too heavy for younger viewers to understand, this is one of the few anime shows that are not filled with overly explicit content. Samurai 7 is an animated version of Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai filmed way back in the day. Samurai 7 fallows the exact same storyline only set in an alternate reality. The personalities of the characters are exactly like in the live action movie. The characters even keep the same names. The animation is incredible. It is quite possibly just as good as the original live film. I am a big fan and would recommend Samurai 7 for any anime viewer regardless of their preferred genre.
flargh - Fantastic, engrossing, and original
Of all the movies and shows that have been inspired by (or remakes of) Seven Samurai, this is by far my favorite. It's stylish and gorgeous to look at, but it's also very well written and well acted. It sticks close enough to the original story to keep its core elements, but also goes in some really unique directions that make it fun for sci-fi fans and anime enthusiasts to enjoy.
[Soren] - Disappointed about many faults: from Samurai 7, to lack of Japanese audio.
Based on Akira Kurosawa's "The Seventh Samurai," Samurai 7 delivers a mediocre performance. With good artistic direction, a solid, coherent plot, and interesting character developement, you're in for another solid anime series. But, there is also nothing horribly impressive about the show, either. It can drag at times, and the action can become replete with redundancy.
iTunes does not give us the option to change the audio language to Japanese, or put English subtitles on. Which is going to lose a vast amount of customers, because most of us don't like the terrible English dub jobs. If you're at all an anime fan, don't buy Samurai 7 here. Go get the DVD so you can enjoy it in the language you prefer.
AncientManBeast - Excellent, one of the best animes....
I watched this subtitlted so I can't attest to the english acting but everything else is superb. This is problably the best incarnation of 7 Samuria I have seen even though it has a good amount of it's own original flavor. The sci-fi element is blended in beautifully and is a fully fleshed out world with alot of depth. The characters are also well developed and nearing the end of the series, I [and my friends that watched it] had a significant emotional attachment. All in all I can't recommend this show enough and implore anyone, even people who don't usually watch anime, to give this show a shot.
mrfett - Almost double the price of the DVD
It's hard to understand why some tv show seasons are priced so outrageously. This is a great series, but once again, it seems to be a poor value at the price asked here in the iTS.
TheWalkingWounded - Its About Time
Finally, iTunes hooked up with Funimation! Samurai 7 is a magnificent anime specimen and comes highly recommended. For those who already share a love of anime or even those who know nothing about it, this series will prove fun, exciting, and meaningful all at once. Akira Kurosawa is one of, if not THE, greatest writers of anime and Samurai 7 is proof of that statement.
