top 10 best samurai anime to watch

Let’s face it… Samurai are fucking badass. The only people to think otherwise were the Mongolians in 1281 CE that took over most of china and Korea but couldn’t conquer japan. So here are The Top 10 Samurai Anime You shouldn’t show the Mongolians.

10. Batman Ninja

number 10, batman ninja. this is probably the weirdest samurai anime movie on the list. but cool never the less, Batman gets caught in a time displacement machine and gets sent to Feudal Japan where he has to fight jokers Henchman and learns Gotham’s worst criminals used the time machine to become feudal lords in japan fucking up history. Not sure why but fuck it.

9. Sengoku Basara

Number 9, Sengoku Basara. Definitely the most colorful anime on the list. It’s full of action but is goofier and more light-hearted compared to most on the list. What makes this anime stand out is that it was actually adapted from a video game series. 

8. Sword of the Stranger

Number 8, sword of the stranger. This anime feels a bit similar to dororo. where you have a strong samurai who goes on a journey with a kid protecting him along the way. This samurai anime movie has some pretty badass fight scenes that are mysterious and keep you hooked.

7. Afro Samurai

number 7, afro samurai. this is a post-apocalyptic world where the one who wields the Number 1 headband is the best swordsman in the world and shall possess god-like powers. inspired from Okazaki’s love hip hop music and American media.

6. Ninja Scroll 

Number 6, Ninja scroll. Now this anime movie is regarded by many as one of the most influential anime films ever made. This anime feels bipolar because one scene will make me laugh my ass off than the next will be hard to watch because of all the gore. This anime does take things a bit too far so make sure you’re prepared to see some crazy shit.

5. Drifters

number 5, drifters. if you like Hellsing ultimate you’re going to enjoy this. it has the same unique art style with lots of gore and badass characters that get teleported from different moments in history into a fantasy world.

4. Rurouni Kenshin

Number 4, Rurouni Kenshin. This anime is pretty light-hearted at first but i recommend watching until episode 28 where shit really starts hitting the fan. What makes this samurai anime super interesting to watch is too see if Kenshin will be able to move past being a legendary assassin. Vowing never to kill anyone again.

3. Dororo

Number 3, Dororo. This show probably has my favorite story on the list. It puts an interesting perspective on samurai anime where you have the protagonist Hyakkimaru fighting demons to regain his limbs while dealing with the consequences of ruining his father’s village in the process.

2. Gintama

number 2, Gintama. this samurai anime is funny as fuck and has created an entire meme culture. it has hilarious references and makes fun of any anime that exists. it even has some badass moments as well. I would recommend this anime to anyone, but don’t try to binge watch it because it does get a little repetitive. 

1. Samurai Champloo

Number 1, Samurai Champloo. It has a similar style to air gear and Gurren Lagann that I really enjoy. The anime is mainly Episodic so it’s not a great choice if you’re looking for something to binge just like gintama. But if your looking for a great samurai anime that your planning on to watch occasionally this is a great show.

So this concludes my blog on The Top 10 Samurai Anime You shouldn’t show the Mongolians.
