    Great addition to the CR library of offerings!
    This film is very good. Crunchyroll has been getting some rights to some real staples of anime lately and this is definitely up there as one of the better films. This is one that is not necessarily very deep, nor does it stay with you after viewing like some films do. but, it is well animated and tells a decent story well.
    If you haven't seen this one, you won't regret taking the time to sit ...

    -w-a-t-c-h-----i-t--
    This film is a work of art in which no scene is wasted. The subtlety of the themes made it very easy to absorb ones self in the magnificent action however they are not wasted and amount to some very heavy scenes near the end as mysteries become revealed. The story is compelling, the characters are powerful, especially tobimaru and the art is fantastic. I think everyone should watch this at least ...

    A classic samurai tale
    A young orphan boy and his faithful canine companion cross paths with a ronin, and their fates intertwine. This movie has above average artwork and quality animation. A serious tale with no sophomoric humor and zero fan service. As this film contains a lot of hardcore samurai combat, the level of violence is high, so expect significant gore.
    This is an excellent film in pretty much every respect, ...

    What an amazing movie!!
    I started watching it without expecting much but was completely blown away. The fight scenes were beautifully done and keeps you at the edge of your seat. The story was nice and heartwarming for some reason. I just enjoyed every second of it and will come back for more viewings.

    Totally worth the watch
    This is a great movie and among my all time favorites, so I love seeing it on CR. The story line moves along quickly and the fight sequences are phenomenal, still some of the best I’ve seen to date. From the animation to the score, everything Was thought through and considered. You cannot go wrong if you give this movie a chance.

    A great film if you love good animation and fights.
    From the music to the fighting, to the animation this film has so many great things for a viewer to enjoy. While in all fairness think the type of story you are getting is pretty basic, I still will happily overlook that for what I get from the other aspects of this movie, if you enjoy fast pace sword fights this is the film for you.

  • Great movie, heart, action, and artwork
    The moment I knew this movie was going to be good one, was when I saw a praying mantis at the beginning of the film. The craftsmanship that went into making all the moving parts of that one beautiful bug showed the level of artistry that creators were putting into the movie. They carried that wonderful artwork throughout the film.

    But Sword of the Stranger has more to offer than just great ...

  • One of the top 3 best movies
    If I could I would this way more then just five stars, trust me. It was beautiful from start to end, with amazing work by the writers and voice actors. I have watched this over 5 times and I would watch it again. This is definitely one of my go-to movie.

  • Amazing animated movie!
    For being something I've never heard before this was a great movie. Should have way more recognition that what it has gotten.
    I feel like it's missing why the boy was deemed important and a little more back story for "No Name" but overall I guess it doesn't take to much away from the main story.

    A+
