OBSCURE O.V.A.S, *Samurai: Hunt For The Sword

Originally titled Kai Toh Ran Ma: The Animation, Samurai: Hunt For The Sword is a 2-episode OVA based on a Japanese video game. This basically seems like its “Tenchi Muyo meets Rurouni Kenshin”.

It takes place during the shogun days of Japan. A young swordsman named Shinjuro, who is the heir to a prestigous dojo, takes charge of his father’s duties while he is off on a mysterious mission. But the quiet place soons turns into an episode of Tenchi with two cute girls quarreling over him. Then, it is revealed that some ninjas are causing mayhem in the city, but its a cover up for their attempt to start a revolution against the government by stealing a magical sword. The leader of the revolution challenges Shinjiro to a fight with the opposing magical sword that his father is searching for. All this while the true identity of one of the ninjas is really a shrine maiden that Shinjiro has the hots for.

There are some funny moments in this and some decent action. Check it out!
