Okay guys! I’ve been posting a lot lately, lol. I wanted to share another anime with you, and this one is fairly new, as in created within the last year or so. If you want to be technical, that makes it somewhat old when you think of recent anime shelf life huh? But I digress.


We’re gonna focus on Kuromukuro, a production of P.A. Works. This plot is somewhat ambitious, mixing futuristic mecha technology and samurai/bushido culture connected by some strange form of cryostasis and and cloning used for time travel. It’s actually streaming on Netflix in Dub! Let’s delve into a brief rundown of these two seasons of awesomeness!


A United Nations research facility by the name of Kurobe Laboratory located in the Japanese mountains found an ancient artifact that they have yet to unlock. Many mysteries surround it, more so when they find out the mecha can only be opened by the Chief Researcher’s daughter, Shirahane Yukina (Japanese name order).


And what of the recently re-awakened samurai who was trapped inside in cryogenic stasis for 400 years?! Why does he think Yukina is his long, lost princess?!



Forced to become a working member of the facility, Yukina and the samurai, Kennosuke must put aside their initial differences and work together to fight the onslaught of an upcoming alien invasion!

Let the battles begin!


Personal Takeaways

I love Yukina’s dad. He was so goofy, it was adorable. And he was a nice lookin’ old man to boot! You don’t actually get to see him in action until like episode 23 or 24 though.

The artwork of this anime is amazing! I really love the thought they put into it based on art, plot and general cohesiveness of all its components. It was really well made and highly entertaining! If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest giving it a look see!

They even have an official website!

    This is sitting very close to the top of my watch list and I’ve been eyeing it off on Netflix but haven’t taken the plunge yet. I may need to move it up and just watch it. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey wuz up! Long time no see (or hear now thinking about it). I was hooked when Netflix had just the first season on to the point I had them notify me of when the next season would come out. I give it 5 stars obviously as everything was awesome. Maybe it just the mecha lover in me.

      Yeah, life took over for a minute. Can’t guarantee it won’t again, but I was able to do some good posts recently.

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I to find this matter to be really one thing that I feel I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I’m having a look ahead on your next post, I will try to get the hold of it!

      Thanks for the support! I can help out with what I can. Can you explain what specifically you are having trouble understanding? I can try to explain it to you to the best of my ability. ^_^

    I am not positive where you are getting your information, however great topic. I must spend a while finding out more or understanding more. Thank you for excellent info I was searching for this info for my mission.

    • Toni-Senpai says:

      All of my information came from actually watching the anime and getting the plot, and any additional information came from extensive studies into Japanese culture due to my International Studies BA. If you have any other questions or want to know any more information on a particuar topic in Japanese culture or on a particular anime, let me know. ^_^
