Anime Description: Shigurui: Death Frenzy

It is the year 1629 AD. The warring states era in Japan has ended and the Edo Shogunate has taken control of Japan. Although there is no longer any need for armed conflict, there are still competitions using bladed weapons in the country. At Sunpu Castle, the home of Lord Tokugawa Tadanaka, two samurai combatants are about to fight: a strange contest to be sure, for one of them – Seigan Irako- is blind and crippled and the other - Gennosuke Fujiki - is missing one arm - but the two swordsmen are VERY familiar with each other, both in history – and their hatred for one another!
