Someone has uploaded the full first episode of Samurai 7, the anime series based on Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, to YouTube. In case you have been wondering how well (or how badly, depending on your judgement) Seven Samurai converts into the world of cyborgs, here is your chance to take a look.
The episode is divided into three videos, and can be found here: part 1, part 2, part 3.

I didnt like the series at first, I think the fact that Kikuchiyo is a giant robot that is steamed powered really confused me, along with the pointless comic relief coming from a young girl.
Despite its odd quirks,I did however watch most of the first season. I cant say its bad as I did maintain interest, enjoying when it followed the movie, but when strayed off the story line, which happens very often it begins to suffer it is however never unbearable. A interesting concept worthy of watching wither fan of anime or not
