Kedamono no ken: Sword of the Beast: (Japanese): Contemplative and tacitly concerning is main character, Gennosuke over his actions to as why he has decided to live as a beast of the mountains.

Those, whom carelessly commit physical hari-kari and never deal with their emotional seppaku equivalent of inner shame, might never have such gracious gambit to be able to grow from their personal pains and personal plights.

I liked the relationship demonstrated that simple men are mainly and mostly beasts, whom carelessly carry out orders of higher-up demons; and these simple men, whom are beasts, are likely to be played as pawns, and die by blade of some other demon’s orders.

For the particular time period of this film and for the technical type of genre, I thought and felt that it was well received via me. And to me, “Sword of the Beast” was a well established roaming ronin story.

The story plot and character analysis reminds me well of what it means to search for one’s own personal honor when everything around one and in one exemplifies exactly none of it.
