  • 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+

  • Wow, just wow. A must watch
    You don't come across anime this good anymore. Great story, amazing animation and sequencing. You could follow the fight scenes blow for blow, step by step... footwork, weapon handling, it was all there. Its like a cross between "Samurai Champloo" and "Seirei no Moribito". Definitely worth the watch .

  • This movie gets 5 stars and an A for Awesome!
    I’m a woman of few words. Though that may be the case, I still want to say that this movie is worth the time as it is very awesome and cool at the same time. Although I was about to close it at the beginning because the kid was an ass (i hate rude , loud-mouthed kids) but I chose to be patient and lo and behold it got me hooked. Very interesting movie. I wasn’t disappointed. I like it a lot. ...

  • Absolutely amazing anime
    Absolutely an amazing movie. Ive only seen small snippets of it on FB before watching it and let me tell you after watching it i was speechless. The animation is amazing and the fight scenes are so intense. I highly recommend this if your into sword fights and the Samurai era.

    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, ...

  • You must see it at least once!
    This movie is great! This is so good, the directing, imagery, character introductions, the action frames being set as something seen for a realistic POV rather than a close-up of gore. Animators outdid themselves. Effing slowclap, thanks for movie!!!

    This Movie Needs all the Love
    It's in my top 10 best anime movies of all time. The animation is spectacular, the story is intriguing, sad, intense, and heartwarming, and the main characters are well written. I will say, if you're into stories where everyones backstory is explained via flashbacks or direct dialogue, you might be a bit disappointed since some characters are not as focused on as the main characters, so people die ...

    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.
