Yes, the Independant Film Channel will be airing this anime on Saturday nights at 10:30 p.m. (with a 1:30 a.m. rerun). The premise is simple: peasants get worked over by warlords. Peasants go off to hire samurai to take down warlords. Of course, since this is anime, the setting is in a future where skilled swordsmen can slice and dice enemy aircraft, and a big dumb robot makes things far worse during a hostage standoff. Yeah...there is a robot...or mech, or whatever the hell they call it....and it's not that bright.
I'll be watching this series every week. It has also inspired me to reserve the live-action counterparts from the library in order to compare and contrast.
