  • Which do you like more: the Kurosawa Classic, or Futuristic Anime?

  • My favorite is the classic, but I've never seen it.

  • Seven Samurai is a 50s film about a village of farmers being terrorized by a group of bandits. Frustrated with facing hunger, they decide to hire some Ronin samurai as champions to either intimidate or fight them. When they return with seven (actually six, plus a rowdy peasant who believes that owning a katana makes him a samurai), they discover that the following conflict would come at a cost.

  • The film, made by Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, was, even subtitled and dubbed in the English language when it was released in the United States, was so inspirational that it spawned some remakes and similar storylines, including the MGM western The Magnificent 7, and its 2016 remake. Yes, Samurai 7 is a futuristic remake.

  • However, the anime goes farther later in the show. It leads up to confronting the corrupt and incompetent leadership of the land. After the War, some biomechanical Samurai turned to a life of crime, a group being the bandits terrorizing the village in this version, after they were replaced by mercenaries by decree of law.

  • I know it's off-subject, but which do you like more, the original classic, or the futuristic anime? Take you time, if you like.
