Gifū Dōdō!! Kanetsugu to Keiji



Original creator/Production supervisor: Tetsuo Hara
Director: Bob Shirohata
Series Composition: Yasuhiro Imagawa
Character Designer: Masaaki Kanan
Music: KAZSIN
Animation Production: Studio Deen
Plot summary: The manga follows the adventures of the real-life samurai Naoe Kanetsugu.

Note: Tetsuo Hara first created the 1990-1993 manga Hana no Keiji -Kumo no Kanata ni- to adapt Keiichiro Ryu's novel about another samurai, Maeda Keiji.

Hara and magazine editor Nobuhiko Horie then brought in manga artist Yūji Takemura to launch the spinoff Gifū Dōdō!! Naoe Kanetsugu -Maeda Keiji Tsuki-gatari- in Weekly Comic Bunch magazine in 2008. According to Hara, he felt he did not delve far enough into the life of Maeda's close friend Naoe in the earlier manga. However, Weekly Comic Bunch folded in 2010.

As result, Horie launched a new magazine called Comic Zenon in 2010. The three creators started the ongoing series Gifū Dōdō!! Naoe Kanetsugu -Maeda Keiji Sake-gatari- in Comic Zenon's inaugural issue.

Shinchosha published all nine volumes of Tsuki-gatari, while Tokuma Shoten published the sixth volume of the Sake-gatari followup in December.

I like Naoe Kanetsugu (and Maeda Keiji) so I'll at least try, but... why Deen of all studios? ;_;

And there's a reason it's replacing said series' TV time slot.

Good question. They do seem to get more stuff then they really deserve judging by their adaptations, but is it a death sentence?

DEEN is synonymous with cheap and soulless.

Really waiting it. But DEEN involvement is frightens me. Also, I hoped that Akio Ohtsuka will voice Keiji (he voiced him in the "Keiji" audio book), but Takuya Sato seems an alright choice.

Still wonder why did they decide to animate spin-off before the actual manga. Maybe they want to check if it will be popular?

This is going to be the manliest show this year.

I do wonder why Naoe Kanetsugu of all people, though. I mean, he wasn't really famous for being a total badass...

By the way, Namikawa Daisuke is so ridiculously awesome. Seriously, only this season he's Kanetsugu here, Whatshisface in Kamisama no inai nichiyoubi, and that guy in Brothers Conflict...

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Well done DEEN, well done. If the men in this show are already HUGE, how monstrous is this horse then? Perfect mount for Guts, I guess.

Actually, this time I'm willing to bet that it's not DEEN, it's the manga. (Raou's horse, anyone?)

I picked this up at random from Crunchyroll and thought it was so ridiculously over-the-top that it might be worth watching for a while. I wish the women were more than male playthings, though. Maybe there will be some strong female characters, but the cast list looked pretty uniformly male.

You gotta love a guy who fights while smoking his pipe. Any speculation on what is in it, if anything at all? Maybe he just uses it to project a macho image like Macarthur?
