    Dont forget Shogun Assassin is actually a cut of the first 2 Lone Wolf films, (Sword of Vengence and something else, cant remember). Ok the prints crap its non-anomorphic, and its a mongrel cut of two films, but its one of my favourite post pub films, and a good little film in its own right, the blood and violence sweet, that git Tarantino had it playing in Kill Bill 2 (Uma and her daughter scene) and for those who have not seen it, you can see where Tarantino nicked all his Kill Bill violence ideas from.

    kill Bill was in part inspired by Shogun assassin but also Lady Snowblood, which is a surprisingly good revenge thriller very much him the same vein as kill Bill. :cool:

    Restored versions of all 6 Lone Wolf & Cub movies have been released on R1 by 'Animego'. They all have pretty good anamorphic transfers and are available quite cheap from dvdsoon.
    Animego have also released restored versions of both Lady Snowblood films.

    The only thing I miss about Shogun Assassin when I'm watching the lovely, uncut, properly subtitled, anamorphic widescreen Animego discs is the wikkid synthesiser music.

    It rocked.
