Set during the Warring States era of Japan, Samurai Deeper Kyo offers new, fictionalized accounts of history including demons, metaphysical powers, and new clandestine forces at work for control of the nation. The series follows Onime-no-Kyo, a legendary assassin who is said to have killed a thousand men. He himself was killed during the civil war four years prior to the time that the series takes place, but he now shares a body with a humble man named Kyoshiro. Kyoshiro is travelling with a girl named Yuya, who is searching for the man who killed her brother, but even buried inside another man's body, Kyo still attracts enemies who want to kill him again for his part in the civil war. How long can two spirits survive in one body? And how did they come to share it in the first place?

Since then he has lain dormant inside the body of a medicine man..a healer named Kyoshiro Mibu but now Demon Eyes Kyo has awakened and the future as it was meant to be will now be forever changed. <--Intro
As for myself this was a good series 3 1/2 or 4 stars. This series comes in a "Lite Box" which is all 6 discs inside a normal sized DVD case and a single divider, each disc overlaps the other. The format is an anamorphic W/S transfer & the voices are well done except for Benetora who reminds me of a bad George Bush impersonation. The outakes are somewhat comical just do not watch them before watching that disc as they are clips from what is about to come.
You will not be blown away by the animation as it is several years old but still it is very well done...deep blues..rich greens. I did not notice any CGI to speak of I would classify them more as "Special Effects".
The story itself is nicely done..to start with Kyoshiro is being hunted by a bounty hunter because he ate and ran leaving behind the bill. Just as the bounty hunter catches up with Kyoshiro so does a warrior whom begins to beat on Kyoshiro and not until severly beaten does Kyo's personality come to the surface. That is when you find out that Kyo has his own body to which he must find in order to return to it. While on that journey others join him and they learn that there are 5 legendary weapons, weapons so perfect that a Master can only produce one in his lifetime. Only when all 5 are joined together can history be restored to its true path.
I will not break down the whole story for you but having the name "The Thousand Man Slayer" you have made alot of enemies.
There is a lot of action but not tons of gore. This has a dark feel to it and while you are solving one problem it leads to another...who is pulling who's strings yet all the time it is part of the underlying plot. Characters are well developed and almost everyone you meet plays and important part.
As I said I found this a very entertaining Samurai tale set in the 1600's. There are monsters...magical weapons. Kind of Fantasy/Samurai. The story moves forward and does not get bogged down at any point and the sound is nicely done...you do Not hear the sound of a gong (thankgod) when someone gets hits on the head only once or twice did I see the "Noodle Arms" effect.
I have seen it twice and for me the replay was good..I still found myself interested all the way through on the second viewing.
This is something I would suggest if you are interested in a serious story. This is not slapstick nor stand alone episodes it requires a persons attention. So if you get bored because there is not 20 minutes of action out of a 22 minute episode then this is not for you.
