Neko Zamurai the movie

The good news is that Renbutsu Misako is in it! The bad news is that its pretty much a boring retelling of the dorama series with different characters. The laid amusing, laid back show really is much more suited for the half hour drama format rather than a 1 1/2 hour movie. Maybe for people who have not seen the dorama it might be fun but I'd recommend the dorama over the movie.

Nothing much to see here unless you are a Renbutsu Misako diehard. Whether or not there even should be a season 2 remains to be seen but I think they're just going to run this into the ground like Doctors because it looks pretty cheap to shoot.

Agree about the movie. It was somewhat bland. But the first ep of season 2 is more like the season 1 goodness! Utterly funny really.
The cat igloo was gold already!

Season 2 got...weird. I still enjoy it, but it's not really slice-of-life samurai anymore. I find it funnier than the first season, though.

The scenery is still gorgeous, but somehow looks drabber than the first season.

Bobo, I'm not really enjoying season 2. There's no interesting recurring characters unlike season 1.
