    I love this film; it’s hilarious!

    And I also can’t wait to see (at least I hope to see) a posting for Samurai Spy. :O)

    Wait and see. ^_^

    I like RED SHADOW but I love SAMURAI FICTION.

    Oddly, I really disliked Samurai Fiction when it first came out, being a lover of the samurai cinema. I hadn’t seen it since but might do so in a few more years. :O)

    It’s a post-modernist romp and a (gentle) genre parody. Clearly a movie made by people who love samurai cinema. I don’t know what audiences make of it who haven’t seen a good number of samurai movies; you’d really have had to to get the joke. I adore it. You should give it another try.
