"Good, in Japanese"
5 stars"

I love this show. It is one of my favorites in my dvd collection. It is an imaginative blend of Comedy, Drama, Romance and Action.The story takes place during the feud between the Shinsengumi clan and the Chōshū clan. It is told from the viewpoint of Tsesunoske, a young page serving the Shinsengumi clan. The animation is also extremely pretty. The one bit of advice I would give to purchasers of Peacemaker is to watch it in Japanese, with the subtitles on. Although I usually watch anime with the English dub, this show is an exception. The some of the dub voices are fine, but a lot of characters use southern accents, which completely ruins the traditional Japanese feel of the show. The show is much more enjoyable and the voices fit better in the Japanese dub.

"Really worth it." Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you like samurai ethics, humour, slashy inuendo, bloody battles and memorable characters blended remarkably accurately into historical details – then you'll love PMK. Based around the infamous shinsengumi the story foucses mainly on a morality question that nicely refrains from beating you over the head – or at least distracts you everytime its getting too much.

Graphics wise, the anime style is fluent and well styalised while retaining some individuality in its artwork. Overall, this is a great dvd – and a wonderful introduction to the series. I'd recomend it wholeheartedly.

Description

For 15-year-old Tetsunosuke Ichimura, childhood innocence has given way to a blinding thirst for revenge. Haunted by the vicious slaying of his parents, Tetsu decides to seek out the Shinsengumi, an elite group of swordsmen sworn to protect the capital. The Shinsengumi are engaged in a brutal conflict with the Choshu rebels, the same ruthless killers who murdered Tetsu's parents. In the name of justice and against the will of his older brother, Tetsu desperately hopes to join the Shinsengumi.

But an incident late one night forces him to face reality. The Shinsengumi prove themselves capable of the same brutality as his parents' murderers. Wading through a sea of espionage, intrigue and flowing blood, the young boy must decide whether to shed his humanity and become a demon of the Shinsengumi, or to relinquish his hatred and become a Peacemaker in the spirit of his father. Revenge is sweet, but is it worth losing your soul?
