    A strange show that is not as good as it thinks that it is.

    By drdan2410, Jan 30, 2009

    The show tells the story of various historical events related to the Shinsengumi throughout the meji Revolution through the eyes of a young boy named Tetsunosuke Ichimura. Ichimura wants desperately to join their ranks and take revenge for his parents and the show tells the story of how he struggles to forgo his conscience and become one of them.

    This show tries to be very clever and very thoguth provoking but never quite manages it. The plot is OK, the animation is OK and the characters are OK. Which pretty much sums it up this show is OK but nothing more.moreless

    Simply one of the best animes out there.

    By Kokuei_hayashi, Feb 18, 2006

    Peace Maker is simply one of the greatest animes out there, and thus for many reasons. Not only does it truly represent the fierce battle between the two forces (Bakufu and Choshu), but it does so in a way no anime has ever been able to do before. We see that there are no real bad guys, only two clans with different ideas. The story is pretty neat, the violence is not exagerated at all and the humor is somewhat present. The music is great, the characters cool and very representative. The slow pace of the story might somewhat dissuade some viewers who are used to fast paced animes such as Gundam Seed where something new and big happens every 5 minutes. However in Peace Maker, the story is so deep and touching that even though there aren't that much events at the beginning, you simply get to appreciate them more. Peace Maker is a must see for anyone who loves anime about feudal Japan and the revolution.moreless

    Peace Maker is one of my all times favorite shows, right from the start.

    Once I saw the Peace Maker first dvd in the boxset I knew I had to have it. It's totally is a great series, it has action, drama, love and history facts all rapped up in to a show. From watching the first dvd disc I couldn't wait for the next ones to be released. I even had to ask to reserve them so I made sure I got it. Now I have all the disc and all the episodes. It's a great anime that anyone will surely love. I even showed one episode in my anime club and they asked to see it again and angain. Out of 20 or so members that all the memembers request to see an anime series more means that it deffently is a good series.moreless

    In a vast sea of samurai animes, Peace Maker does nothing to stand out from the crowd.

    By MikeBFire, Aug 11, 2005

    It's the typical saumrai plot, right? Boy sees his parents slautered, boy sacrifices his soul to get revenge. This rash, young kid wants nothing more than to get back at the people who murdered his family. So he joins a group of people who tell him that if he wants to be strong, he has to loose his humanity. Well, it seems he doesn't want to, and he throws his temper around and hates violence and is against killing for any reason. There's really nothing special about this show that makes it better than any other except for the great animation.moreless
