quietearth [Celluloid 12.12.08] movie anime news samurai



While we're not big into anime around here, we do love samurai stuff, and as this is written and developed by Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) himself, we've got to give it a look. And we reported on it back in October.

The film deals with the fact and fiction about the Niten Ichi-ryū of Musashi Miyamoto, the seeker of the way of the invincible sword. Miyamoto is a legendary swordsmen who pioneered the Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū style of two-sword fighting and wrote The Book of Five Rings, a book that has been compared to Sun Tzu's The Art of War for its insight on tactics and strategy.
