Review:
Anime action which became one of the most popular anime. A samurai fight whose main character only uses a wooden sword but is capable of destroying the katana. Stunning animation of combat, intimidating conflict with unpredictable stories. Has a concept with a mixed backdrop between the edo era and the future as well as the presence of creatures from other planets. This anime not only presents the fight alone, a lot of episodes with dirty and parody comedy stories that make the audience very entertained and laughed.

Review:
Anime-themed dark fantasy that has many adult elements such as harassment, brutal murder, and a sadistic scene that takes a lot of blood. This anime is very exciting and thrilling in terms of stories, conflicts, and others.

Unfortunately new animations are made using CGI style so this anime looks weird and prefers an animated style like the old anime berserk. But if you do not care about CGI style animation, maybe this anime can be the best spectacle for you guys.
