Akizuki was soooo Cool!
As I was saying, its a historical anime, so it will be a little wierd if you watch it at the beginning xD I don't even know the history of Japan. The Sword he was carrying have some kind of mysterious and unique powers, so much for a chosen samurai

it is good. i've learnt some jap history from it, and it's nice how they have theatre and war all rolled into one. it's a little slow moving...but the way the plot unfolds will amaze you!!

the only thing is that they throw an awful lot of characters at you so it can get a bit confusing...I've only gotten through the first four episodes but it has potential

Wow and here I thought I was the only one who knew about this ... lol though I have to admit this one is pretty obscure. Not too many people know about it. Yeah, when I watched the first three episodes I was kind of confused...the plot is a bit strange but interesting. I really like the traditional Japanese setting..I don't know if it's historically accurate though. hehe, the art is sure pretty!

This anime is so wonderful, although the way of story's proceeding is very confusing for those who don't know about Japan history .
To underestand it better, I studied a bit about Japan history from Wikipedia ,it was good.
I think this anime can be very usefull for japanese students for their history lessons.
Besides, it's so entertaining and it's music & songs are awesome .

Is their a manga and does the story go past where the anime ends? It does end pretty perfectly though.

Yes, one of the animes that I think is awesome. It would be boring if you are not interested in history, Akizuki and Yoko -- truly amazing but sad fate. I like Yoko even though there were a couple of times she was annoying

I had a little trouble following the history, but I didn't find it at all boring; it's too beautiful.

Yoko is really pretty and talented. I like how she handles her sword, I mean she could fight but it was mostly shown in the mid to end part.

Yeah I know...it is strange that not many have seen this anime. It probably has something to do with the long "a.." titile. It is really quite the epic though-it has everything.

its because not many viewers like twists and historical type animes... most of people here prefer love stories and the infamous generic shounen/shoujo cliched animes.

You don't really need to know a lot about Jap history to understand this. Just know what are samurai's and katanas then you're good
