House of Five Leaves





microkosm
I was browsing the Hulu animation section a few weeks ago and found House of Five Leaves. I have a soft spot for samurai-era anime and started watching despite the feminized art style (seems to be a trend in anime tailored toward women).

The samurai genre is heavily saturated, but this anime tries to separate itself by heavy character development. The basic plot is that a timid samurai gets wrapped up with a gang of hostage-takers. The first few episodes are slow, but the story is starting to pick up now with the unraveling backstories of the gang members who call themselves the Five Leaves.

Interesting side note: this anime is simultaneously being streamed on Hulu/Youtube/Funimation.com as it is being aired on Fuji TV in Japan. This should be standard practice from the big Japanese animation studios.
