Sengoku Basara Dokugan – Modern Day Samurai?

Sengoku Basara DokuganAre you tired of the old samurai times and seeing a misplaced ensemble of warriors positioned in the same age as others who lived eras before? Then, you are getting a better, stronger and more inconsistent dose of this in the new Sengoku Basara manga by the mangaka of Soukoku no Garou – Hokuto no Ken: Rei Gaiden (Yasuyuki Nekoi). The spinoff series is entitled Sengoku Basara Dokugan.

One-by-one, visuals and sketches for the new project are uploaded to the official Capcom website of the project. The key visual is a depiction of Date Masamune, one of the main characters in the original story, standing beside a Harley-like motorbike surrounded by his trusty katana blades.

Do you think the horse should have been made a full-fledged bike, or was it unnecessary? I cannot stop wondering about this decision.

  1. To answer the question, Sengoku Basara has always been a crazy concept with modern day references and elements, so I am absolutely okay with this side story, as long as they keep Date-dono’s unique spirit and Kojurou-sama’s intelligent presence. :)
