Ronin Warriors came to me ages ago as a kid when Toonami first premiered. Its one show that caught my eyes and apparently has never let go. I current own this in my library of DVDs and I love watching it over and over.
The concept was great, and the characters and master plot were molded well and so full of fluidity. When the first plot device occurs in about... episode 2 or 3, I'm not quite positive -- is when the show starts to blossom, and it envelopes into something greater and far more interesting as we see battle after battle. It was a brilliant show for its time, and I'm glad it caught my eye.
If it did, I would indefinitely be missing out on something special.
