Kotaro, a young boy, and his dog meet a nameless samurai who is haunted by memories of his past which have led him to avoid drawing his sword ever again. Among the Ming is a fearsome Western fighter named Luo-Lang, whose only desire is to find a worthy opponent. When both groups clash with a Sengoku-era feudal lord, a proud general, and monks torn between faith and survival, the reason behind the Ming's pursuit tests the bond between Kotaro and Nanashi.

Been buying animated film/series for years and this is the first time its ever happened, now i feel cheated because its completely unwatchable.
But the places that this film scores highly for me don't really come in the concept, this film is all in the execution.
The animation in the fight scenes is by far the most fluid and flowing I have ever seen in an anime, combined with amazing choreography every piece of action is simply jaw droppingly brilliant to watch.
The way that the characters look or have been drawn is also very impressive... once again there isnt really anything new here but it all feels far more polished and detailed than in any other anime movie on the market at the moment.
The soundtrack for Sword of the stranger is also something to be admired, certain moments sent chills up my spine, it really is THAT good. I actually sat through the whole of the credits (something I very rarely do) just to hear one of the peices of music in its entierty.
Ive already mentioned that the story doesnt really do anything new or particularly surprising, but it has to be worth mentioning that the pacing of this movie is spot on in every respect- action sequences always kick in at just the right moment and the plot is slowly built up in very intense manner all leading to the amazing final conclusion.
If you're looking for a complex and deep story then maybe you might want to subtract a star or two but no matter your preferences I really do think that this film should be seen by all anime fans at some point, it really does set the benchmark for animation quality and I feel that it has to be seen to be believed.
This film has a complete thumbs up from me.
Loved every moment.
Thanks for reading!
