Pop Culture Time

I've always been a fan of some odd movies and television shows, and as it turns out a favorite of both was Zatoichi, the stories chronicled the adventures of a blind gambler-masseur-swordsman. You read that right. Well, it turns out a few years ago an homage/sequal was made entitled Ichi about a blind girl the original hero rescues and teaches before leaving her in a community of blind women. Ichi is eventually kicked out after being accused of an affair and has adventures with a ronin she meets while searching for Zatoichi. A lot goes down in this movie and I have Craig and the others at Viking Samurai to thank for turning me on to this continuation of a great franchise.
