This show also known as: No Dude, That’s Your Sister!

Dagger of Kamui might be the best cartoon ever made.

Music Selection: DAKADAKADAKADAKADAKA HEY!

This show is about:


NINJURS.

  • In the three years since I posted http://animeworldorder.blogspot.com/2006/11/anime-world-order-show-40-forty.html , the amount of other people besides myself who like Dagger of Kamui has remained a solid zero.

    Until this podcast. Now there are three of us.

  • The Joel

    It is a very strong three.

  • David

    I like it, but I’m nobody who’s anybody, so make that 3.01.

  • It was because of Daryl’s posting years ago that I too became a fan of Kamui. So, while I’m not part of the strong three, I’m a fan nonetheless. Also, that chanting is inspired by, if not really emulating the Balinese Kecak music style. In fact, it was because of Akira that I became interested in Balinese traditional music. Oh, and I think Arion might be a nice companion anime to Kamui – it’s worth searching for it.

    Oh, and the Galford jpeg… brilliant.

  • Morticon

    I came home with a bunch of your buttons from AZ 09! xD I love your podcasts. Thanks guys!

  • Kidder

    Holy crap Reggaenights! I was thinking the exact same thing about Arion! Are we like long lost brothers?!?! Or are you just stealing thoughts from my mind?

  • VZ

    I liked Dagger of Kamui and even bought thew DVD thanks to Daryl’s review.

  • VZ

    Oh and since D&J like Azumanga, would you be willing watch Lucky Star?

  • Dave

    I’ve seen a couple episodes of Lucky Star.

    In the parlance of the internet: DO NOT WANT.

  • Kidder: I already have a brother, so yes. 0_0

  • I would like to note, that the theme of “Dagger of Kamui” was also later used in the live action “Ninja Dragon” of 1986, and is in the same “Ultimate Ninja Collection” series as such gems as: NINJA VS THE MAFIA, NINJA IN THE CLAW OF THE C.I.A., and NINJA SQUAD.

  • Camario

    Cool. Did you know that there’s a completely different yet also pretty awesome “Kamui” anime? Ninja Kamui Gaiden / Kamui the Ninja.

    They share nothing except awesomeness. And Ninjas.

    And there’s also something called Gekko Kamen, which is the original that Kekko Kamen is supposed to be a sexual parody of (Why Go Nagai, why?). The theme song if pretty catchy.

    Don’t think either of them is available in English though, dubbed or not.

  • Camario

    …guess Evil Jesus turned my “s” into an “f” up there. Damn you!

  • SPIKE

    I don’t know what it is, but whenever ninjas are in the podcast you guys kick it up a notch. I fear the day you review a show with dinosaurs and ninjas my head might implode.

    But what a fine implosion it would be

  • Yesssssss.

    One of my top 5 favorite anime ever. I myself discovered it because of Netflix & Dary Surat’s review back in the day. Your review was hilariously spot-on as per usual, but even better than usual as this is such a quality piece. In the spirit of such over-the-top awesomeness, i’d love to hear a review of Rintaro’s Captain Planet movie (Harmeggedon) and the sci-fi masterpiece called Crusher Joe: The Movie. Also I too am a huge fan of the old man in this; him >>> the old man in Ninja Scroll.

    And in case don’t already have it, heres the soundtrack: http://rapidshare.com/files/153171597/TheDaggerOfKamui.zip.html

    Long days and pleasant nights!
