Steampunk Samurai


The following is the opening credits from an anime I am slowly working my way through with the boy, which for some strange reason I felt like sharing with you all, gentle readers. It is essentially a retelling of The Seven Samurai in a semi-futuristic, heavily steampunk influenced, hyper-romantic Japanese distopia.

The boy and I spend a lot of time discussing the merits of each of the seven (he is a big Kikuchiyo fan while I favor Gorobei or Kyuzo), and the opening song moves us both deeply. Go figure.

Watch the opening sequence after the jump.
