Samurai Deeper Kyo

This anime told the story in the 1600’s, the battle of Seikigahara is fought between the Western Army and the Ieasu Tokugawa’s Eastern Army. During the battle, two samurai face off, one known as Kyoshiro and the other known as Demon Eyes Kyo (which means killer of a thousand men). As the battle rages on, an unexpected falling star crashes into the ground overwhelming both samurai.

Years later in this Japanese animation, Kyoshiro, performs as a medicine man, roams the land with a past he can not recall. Soon, he realizes that he is not alone for his enemy’s soul, Demon Eyes Kyo, is now within him. When Kyoshiro encounters the bounty hunter Yuya Shiina, an unexpected turn of events occur causing the sweet Kyoshiro to retreat having the soul of Demon Eyes Kyo take over the body of Kyoshiro. The world will soon discover why Kyo is called a demon. This is another great sword fighting Japanese animation.

The manga is definitely better - more story, more action and a much better ending =) But i can't fault the anime for taking a different approach to it since they only had 26 eps - but i feel kind of let down with the rest of the 4 Emperors not showing up :P
