Gifu Dodo!! Kanetsugu to Keiji (Anime)

The medieval times of Japanese samurai come to life in the new anime Gifu Dodo!! Kanetsugu to Keiji.

The series follows the adventures of Keiji Maeda, a legendary samurai who is a scholar of literature and the arts. Keiji is known to be a little eccentric, but this reputation is nothing compared to the fame of his physical prowess on the battlefield.

For the most part, Keiji and his good friend Kanetsugu reminisce about how they met, and the mischief and mayhem they get themselves into.

The show is adapted from the manga by Tetsuo Hara, who is best known as being the creator of the post-apocalyptic series Fist of the North Star.

Gifu Dodo!! is actually a spin-off from the manga The Flowery Keiji: At the Other Side of the Clouds, which was published between 1990-1993.

For fans of Fist of the North Star and its prequel, Fist of the Blue Sky, Gifu Dodo!! has many of the same elements: outrageous battles, bromances and demonstrations of chivalry - everything guys love about Hara's works.

And for female otakus, the two handsome lead characters ensure lots of eye candy.

Check out the series now by streaming it on Crunchyroll.
