Episode 6: Lone Wolf and Cub

Time to unleash a new episode, this time it is dedicated to the swordwielding father and son team from Japan: Lone Wolf and Cub!

Based on a manga comic, it has since been made eight movies, two television series, a board game and much more. I give you trailers from the original six movies, two versions of Shogun Assassin (only difference is the title font, but still interesting), and for "Shogun 2": Lightning Swords of Death!

If you like to know more about LWaC, check out the Wikipedia page here, it´s got all you need to know.

The movies (without Director and IMDb, because I´m lazy):

  1. Sword of Vengeance (1972)
  2. Baby Cart at the River Styx (1972)
  3. Baby Cart to Hades (1972)
  4. Baby Cart in Peril (1972)
  5. Baby Cart in the Land of Demons (1973)
  6. White Heaven in Hell (1974)
  7. Shogun Assassin (1980) - Version 1
  8. Shogun Assassin (1980) - Version 2
  9. Lightning Swords of Death (198?) - aka. Shogun Assassin 2
Shogun Assassin is made of footage from the first two movies, dubbed to English. Lightning is a dubbed version of the third movie.

All but 2, 3, and 6 is taken from DVD source. The three is taken from downloaded files, but it looks good on the iPod. It might look a little pixelated if blown up on a TV, or similar. Number 3 has English subtitles.
