I think this anime is a start of a series of anime, that never got completed, so the story was left hanging. I am doing this just for historical purposes..ha ha.
A giant tiger goes on a rampage killing people, but actually it was just a diversion as a princess was kidnapped.
The tiger was killed by a samurai.
The kidnappers wanted to exchange the princess with a sword, so they hired the samurai to deliver the sword and get the princess back.
The samurai managed to save the princess but was almost betrayed by the people that hired him.
Sorry for the crappy review, my mood is not so good tonight..sigh.
