Capcom is known for some of the most popular video games series including Mega Man, Street Fighter and Resident Evil. They also have another series called Sengoku Casara: Samurai Kings. The most recent game, Samurai Heroes, was just released on the PS3 and Wii in October. It's only fitting then that the anime based on the game be released on DVD and Blu-ray at the same time.

QUALITY:
The anime looks great. The picture quality is sharp and defined, with Blu-ray bringing out the best of it. It's your typical anime style from Funimation and it appears they've got the animations down. There are times where the background is done using CGI and they look fantastic as well. Like most animes, you can switch between English and Japanese audio tracks and like most animes as well, Japanese audio with English subtitles is the way to go.

BONUS FEATURES:
New Anime "Sengoku Basara Chosokabe Motochika-kun and Mori-kun" Episodes 1-7, Textless Songs, and Trailers.

It's good to see something other than just textless songs and trailers included as bonus features for an anime. The entire series is only 13 episodes so the extra seven are very welcomed.

If you're a fan of the video games, then Sengoku Basara is worth getting for a deeper storyline and more information about the series. It's decently faithful to the franchise, more so than any movie would have been. I do fear that the anime will mainly appeal to fans though as it isn't amazing enough to entice a new audience.
