shitsux. Anime is horrendous. Manga was a bit better than the anime at first but then it rapidly degraded into your typical power level fest. Stronger person beats weaker person, weaker person somehow survives, trains like hell, comes back stronger, looks like he's about to beat the stronger person, stronger person powers up to SSJ2 or 3 or 4 or 5, etc... beats the person again, weaker person joins party, YAY! Repeat for 20 volumes and you have the entire story of Samurai Deeper Kyo.
