Manga Monday- Samurai Gun

Manga Monday- Samurai Gun

Samurai Gun is a manga series written and illustrated by Kazuhiro Kumagai and serialized in Weekly Young Jump. It was adapted into a 13-episode anime series directed by Kazuhito Kikuchi. The anime is licensed in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Germany by ADV Films, which co-financed the series’ production. There has been no announcement of the manga being translated into the English language. As the title suggests, it features samurai using guns.

Plot

It is the beginning of the industrial revolution, and feudal Japan is in turmoil. The ruling Shogun are wielding their abusive powers to instill fear and dominance over their oppressed subjects. Beatings, imprisonment, rape and even murder are the adopted tactics chosen to maintain their reign. The bloodshed must end. A group of Samurai have banded together, and, with the development of new weapons and new technology, they have both the will and the hardware to stand up and fight. Ichimatsu is one of these fighters. By day, he works incognito at a local tavern, in the evenings he frequents the brothels, and by the dark of night, he doles out some big-time, gun-barrel justice. He is here to help. He is Samurai Gun.

Characters

Ichimatsu 

is one of the samurai guns and the main protagonist of the series. During the day, he works at a local tavern. During the night, however, he delivers merciless justice under the name of “Samurai Gun”. Voiced by Illich Guardiola in the English adaptation and Showtaro Morikubo in the Japanese version.

Daimon 

is another samurai gun who works many missions with Ichimatsu. His cover during the day is a teacher and owes a large tab to the tavern owner Ichimatsu works for. Voiced by Ty Mahany in the English adaptation and Katsuyuki Konishi in the Japanese version.

Film Friday- Vampire Knight

Studio Deen produced a twenty-six episode anime adaptation of the Vampire Knight manga, using many of the same voice actors featured on the drama CDs and directed by Kiyoko Sayama. The episodes started airing on TV Tokyo in Japan on April 7, 2008, and ran until the season conclusion on June 30, 2008. The episodes were also aired at later dates on TV Aichi, TV Hokkaido, TV Osaka, TV Setouchi, and TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting Co. The second season, named Vampire Knight Guilty, premiered on the same station October 6, 2008. The final episode aired on December 29, 2008. On July 24, 2009, Viz Media announced it had acquired the license for the Vampire Knight anime and would begin releasing it to DVD on July 20, 2010. In the UK, the first volume was officially released on DVD via Manga Entertainment on November 22, 2010. In Australia, ABC3 began airing the series (English-language version) in March 2011 and began repeats on July 3 later that year.

The series uses four pieces of theme music. The opening themes of both the first and second season are performed by the duo On/Off, with “Futatsu no Kodō to Akai Tsumi” (ふたつの鼓動と赤い罪) as the opening for the first season, and “Rinne Rondo” (輪廻 -ロンド-Rinne) as the opening for the second. Kanon Wakeshima performs the first season ending theme, “Still Doll”, and also the second season’s ending theme “Suna no Oshiro” (砂のお城). The soundtrack is composed by Takefumi Haketa and consists of 30 tracks (including the opening theme and ending theme).

Vampire Knight was made available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix.

Plot

Yuki’s earliest memory is of a stormy night in winter, where she was attacked by a rogue vampire and rescued by Kaname Kuran, a Pureblood vampire. Now ten years later, Yuki Cross, the adopted daughter of the headmaster of Cross Academy, Kaien Cross, has grown up and become a guardian of the vampire race, protecting her childhood crush, Kaname, from discovery as he leads a group of vampires at the elite boarding school. At her side is Zero Kiryu, a childhood friend whose hatred for the creatures that destroyed everything he held dear leaves him determined never to trust them. This coexisting arrangement seems all well and good, but have the vampires truly renounced their murderous ways, or is there a darker truth behind their actions? In this world of secrets, nothing is as it seems. The price of misplaced trust may even be worse than death. Should Yuki truly find out what was in her past, is the truth going to hurt her worse than not knowing?
