This Lone Wolf and Cub box set consists of all six original Japanese movies from the 1970's that are based on the graphic novel of the same name. All movies are presented in Japanese with the option for english subtitles and are not cut nor edited from the original films as far as I can tell. This is unlike the North American release which edited the first two movies in this series into one film entitled Shogun Assassin. For those looking for the original, non-edited, non-cut version of this series with all films included and intact, then this is the boxset you are looking for. For those of you who may not have even heard of these films; they are the filmed version of a story that has become part of popular culture in Japan. The story of the Lone Wolf and Cub has been adapted into movies, plays, and a television series. The films are the epitomy of a classic Japanese samurai movie - much like what westerns were for Americans. They contain all the violence, action, and depht you would expect from the genre. A great place to start if you are interested.
