I didn't expect Yakumo and Musashi era to end that quickly. That sux. I was starting to like the characters. Now, I will have to wait and see ep 8, i guess

That fight definitely wasn't a letdown. This show is really delivering, IMO.

Only if it could have been longer...but you can only fit so much into one episode. ;P I'm glad they're switching characters, it'd be nice if the main focus wasn't totally on a character that was undefeated. Can't have godmoding characters be the main focus all the time, etc. :P

i loved episode 7 and cant wait for episode 8 this show is really good its really exciting me and i haven't been excited this much since i saw hajime no ippo and grappler baki.

its funny and smart how they animated the gaiden and left the audience to look for the actual manga, makes me want the manga even more too bad no one is scanlating it, and it's not licensed

edit: btw according to ANIDB it looks like that its going to be 26 episode show

I heard that somebody is going to take the initiative to scanlate the manga .. though I don't remember which group it was and where I had heard this news from.

Since I read the chinese translated manga published by Tong Li (quite a long time back), didn't recognize the name till I actually downloaded the Lunar version and watched it.

It was quite nostalgic to see the fight scenes. It does get a tad ludicrious in later volumes of the manga, with the fighter posessing the Mutsu style taking on an army and managing to break a crucial encampment on top of a hill.

Some extra information about the manga: each arc focuses on a particular descendant practicing the Mutsu Enmei Ryu and their stories are placed within important periods of Japanese history. Quite interesting really...

Shura no Toki itself is a side story to a boxing (or was it plain kempo?) manga story - if I remember correctly. I think it has the same name, but it is all fuzzy in my mind. Hell, I don't even have the volumes anymore...

Just saw ep 8.

I am a bit confused, the girl seems to be a Mutsu, but also not, and the guy with the squint also looks like mutsu, and seems to have similar clothes and a knife, and has similar personality traits to Yakumo, Although I suppose we don't know until he fights.

Definitely appears that Takato is Yakumo's son, they look alike, have the same personality, we even see him catching fish and acting much the same as when we saw Yakumo.

The thing I don't get is how this Sanada Mutsu fake performs that level of unarmed combat vs swords.

Because she's a part of the Sanada family who were very skilled warriors? And maybe Sasuke was training her?

Well she didn't get to fight Iori so we don't really know how good she is at all. All she really did was kick that dude in the back and break his arm. And we already knew that guy was a no talent hack.

Also I'm pretty sure Takato is Yakumo's son. I thought so right when I first saw him (well actually I thought 'Man Yakumo doesn't look any older...").

I really like this anime, but the main problem I have is that the characters all look similar.

Jubei looks likes Musashi, Sasuke looks like the priest and the ninja in the first episode, Takato looks like Yakumo, the girl also looks a bit like Yakumo, AND Iori looks like Yakumo as well.

OH crap, there really is a Yukimura. I thought Samurai Deeper Kyo character are fake except that villian guy and the battle. Wow...so Yukimura actually die after that battle. That suck big time. Btw, I'm looking forward to seeing Jubei more than Takato or Lori fighting. I'm a fan of that one-eye ninja for what reason I do not know for sure. This is getting better and better. Only sad thing is once u got attach to a characters, they turn old and become insignificant/doesn't play major role. BTW, what is the point of making Jubei look so wicked like they did with Musashi but end up a minor character.

I was wondering whats up with jubei, any relation to the jubei of ninja scroll fame... they dont look exactly similar however jubei also has the eye patch in ninja ressurection so i wasnt sure. probably not related but im still curious..
