If you liked the work that was created for the Japanese live action SF film Casshern, you'll want to check out the director's latest work which is coming to the US on DVD and Blu-ray on April 19th called Goemon. The tale is one that works Japanese folklore pretty well and as some have said, evokes the feeling of Robin Hood as well.
Plot summary: After the infamous ninja-turned-thief Goemon cracks a deputy's stronghold, he discovers a conspiracy that proves the poverty-stricken country is under the thumb of a false, warmongering ruler. Armed with the blade of truth, Goemon tears a warrior's path to cut down the decadent king. Saturated with captivating visual effects and explosive action, the fantastical world of Goemon surpasses the reaches of imagination. Battles rage on in elaborate castles and vibrant fields, on snowy mountain caps and fiery ships illuminating a midnight ocean.
