VIDEO: "47 Ronin" Prequel Motion Comic

A classic tail of bushido, now with dragons

The quintessential tale of bushidō, a group of ronin, left leaderless after their daimyo was compelled to commit seppuku for assaulting a court official, plot to avenge their master's honor of the course of two years. Hollywood thought this could be improved with the addition of oni and spider-demon geisha.

 

With the Keanu Reeves movie opening in the US December 25th, 47 Ronin: The Way of the Warrior tells the story of how the ronin came to be masterless, and fought dragons and other incredible beasts along the way.
