ZATOICHI TV - GRAND FINALE

For the first time ever, the Grand Finale of the Zato Ichi story comes to DVD. These two episodes were written and directed by one of Japan's most distinguished filmmakers Teshigahara Hiroshi and elevate the Blind Swordsman from genre hero to fine art. After 25 feature films from 1962 through 1974, the television series lasted 4 years and helped keep alive the legend of the blind wandering gambler/masseur with the lightning fast sword. There were 100 episodes over the 4 seasons and while all of them are very good to excellent, this 2 part finale brings the series and the character to an exciting conclusion unlike anything that ever went before or after.

Episode 99: "The Rainbow Journey" takes Ichi to the inner chambers of a daimyo lord's concubine. A beautiful woman with a deadly secret holds the key to a treasure chest containing 1,000 gold coins. Can Ichi survive against the political activists who want to bring down the government with their bloody blades?

Episode 100: "The Dream Journey" intersperses Ichi's innermost fears and desires with the harsh realities of being a blind man who dreams only of being able to see the sun once more before he dies. With spectacular cinematography and plenty of dynamic swordplay, can Ichi conquer fear and defeat his most formidable adversary?

See Zato Ichi like never before in this stunning work of art!

DAI CHUSHINGURA
THE 47 RONIN OF AKO

One of the most exciting and realistic versions of the story of the 47 Ronin of Ako. This powerful adaptation, done in 2 parts is absolutely thrilling.
Using the martial arts expertise of the Japan Action Club (JAC), this has some of the best fighting, as well as telling the story in its full length in a manner showing more insight into what really went on during the events leading up to, and after Lord Asano Takumi no Kami attacked Lord Kira Kozukenosuke.
Unlike some versions which are long winded and boring, this is the real deal.
This made for TV movie has broken new ground in the story, and must be seen. A true credit to the journals of Japan's greatest story. The revenge of the 47 men, who were willing to give their lives for the honor of their clan, and to avenge their beloved Lord.

SHINSENGUMI KEPPUROKU

Based on the historical novel “The Bloody Journal Of The Shinsengumi” by Shiba Ryutaro this is the best, most complete history of that brutal group of political assassins yet.

The film TABOO was made from one of the chapters in this novel, The Lad With Bangs. Great history, and exciting action.
A must have!

Ooka Echizen no kami Tadasuke was born in Edo in 1677. He is famous as a great commissioner in after ages. However, he had dark days because of his family’s mismanagement when he was young. He led a dissipated life for a while but his view of life started to change gradually and he became an important figure in government. In 1712, he became the commissioner of Ise-Yamada magistrate’s office, and in 1717, he was selected as the commissioner of Minami-Machi magistrate’s office. In most cases, the term of commissioner was 2 to 3 years but he continued to be the commissioner for 20 years. Ooka Echizen was very humane and kind to anybody without prejudice.

SHINSENGUMI

The arrival of Perry’s Black Ships rudely awakened Japan from 300 years of peaceful isolation from the world. Men set their eyes beyond Japan and began to demand change in society. Old clashed with the new, and thus began an age of turmoil. Amidst this confusion, one group remained true to the old ways and risked their lives to preserve the traditional shogunate system. Led by their charismatic captain, Kondo Isami, the SHINSENGUMI upheld the code of honor of the samurai. Tales abound of the feats of men like Kondo, Hijikata Toshizo and Okita Soji. Once again, TV Asahi brings to life the passion and glory of these men who lived during the most turbulent time in Japanese history. Full of pathos, action-packed, this is a series not to be missed by “chambara” fans.

VENGEANCE IS SUCH A GREAT BUSINESS
(Sukedachiya Sukeroku)

This is the final movie from Okamoto Kihachi, the filmmaker who directed such great movies as “Sword Of Doom”, “Kill”, and “Red Lion”. With an equal mix of violence and humor he has forged a career that spanned over 4 decades and created some of the most memorable films to ever come out of Japan. This is no exception, and the hand of a master is evident in his treatment of this highly entertaining story.

In a world where vendettas are officially sanctioned, the people sometimes needed help in carrying out their vengeance. Sanada Hiroyuki stars as Sukeroku the Helper, a ‘cool and rambling yakuza’ that has made a business out of helping victims carry out their revenge. When he returns to his hometown to pay a visit to his mother’s grave he meets a deadly ronin who carries a secret which eventually leads him into a vendetta of his own. With terrific performances by Sanada and Nakadai Tatsuya as the mysterious old ronin, this film brings back the golden era of Japanese cinema!
