Miyamoto Musashi: IG x Kazuto Nakazawa

Script is by that Oshii guy... but who cares about Oshii, anyway?

Miyamoto Musashi, now with an extra helping of existential angst and pretentious psychobabble tacked on. (gee, I hope not... )

More seriously, does "original concept by Oshii" mean this is not a adaptation of the Yoshikawa novel fictionalization like Vagabond or the movie trilogy, but a fresh new take on his legend?

Hahaha wow

I ignored this announcement despite seeing Oshi's name. But I didn't know Nakazawa was involved. Consider me interested now.

I haven't watched Sky Crawlers yet, but when Production I.G and Oshii announce a new project I always get sooooo excited.

Not too fond of the characters here. Whats wrong with his arms? Did he took shark anabolica to get this strong? Musashi was a strong guy yes, but no reason to make him look like John Rambo. But hey, its Production IG and that guy who did the Kill Bill sequence, i am sure as hell it will be worth watching.
BTW big Musashi fan here, i ve read the book by Yoshikawa 5 times. I am a little bit sad that IG didnt make a series out of the material, but a cinema movie is fine too (bigger production values).

Original concept doesn't necessarily mean he isn't using ideas from the novel. Judging from the trailers, he might be taking stuff from many different sources, including the novel.

Aside from Teddy Roosevelt, I don't idolize any figure in history like I do Miyamoto Musashi. My cat's name is Musashi, for heaven's sake.

Looks very promising and the trailer looks yummy . With Examurai Sengoku stalled, this will deliver my samurai fix . Hopefully doesn't turn out like Blade.of.Immortal also having picked up Vagabond itching to watch something of that genre .

Just had a look at an amazing preview and behind-the-scenes look into Musashi: Dream of the Last Samurai (which has just been released across Japan) on NHK's imagine-nation. It looks absolutely splendid and it really feels like Nishikubo Mizuho, Oshii Mamoru and the I.G. staff have made something truly magnificent, which really blows apart just about every other historical anime adaptation, including Sword of the Samurai and even the Rurouni Kenshin OVAs, which is definitely saying something. Oshii and Nishikubo mentioned that they had wanted to portray a side of Musashi not previously seen in the many works based on his life, most specifically his tactical nature and true personality, and of their intention to portray the most accurate representation of Musashi's much celebrated life, with Nishikubo terming it as being more of an "animentary" (portmanteau of "anime" and "documentary"), rather than the traditional "drama" of other adaptations.

The film has quite a distinctive style, presented in an interesting shade of black and white; Nishikubo mentioned that each of the film's scenes were specifically designed to recreate the feel and art of Musashi's famed treatise The Story of the Five Rings. This is extremely different from any of Oshii's other films, being more action-oriented (he noted he wanted to give the film more of a lively feel, rather than a "boring" one) and feeling much more Japanese, which is a great thing, considering the historical nature of the subject matter. What I found particularly striking and extremely interesting was Nishikubo's choice of rōkyoku and shamisen for the film's music, which, performed by the famed rōkyoku and shamisen player Kunimoto Takeharu, suits the sword fighting scenes perfectly and would have to be one of the best musical scores I've ever heard. I simply cannot wait to see this.

Just watched Musashi...

Hmm, first of all, please dont compare it to Sword of Stranger or Rurouni Kenshin OVA. They are two different things. While Sword of Stranger focus heavily on action, Musashi is kinda like the documentary of Musashi Miyamoto.

Well, as my impression say, it's unique...

I must agree with metamorphic, yes the music is excellent. Loved the shamisen sound...

Did not live up to my expectation. That's all I have to say.
