Blade of the Immortal Anime (slowpoke)

Sorry for the slowpoke guys but I wasn't around when the RAW hit and I just noticed the torrent and gave it a watch.

What's /a/'s verdict on the Blade of the Immortal anime. I've been chucking my money at Darkhorse for years on this series and consider myself a bit of a fan but went in fearing the worst due to Beetrain handling production.

In then end I left it feeling kind of "meh". I had more issues with the direction and pacing of the show than the animation. I thought the opening was pretty cool. I wasn't terribly impressed with the episode but it wasn't as bad an adaptation as I had expected it to be. I suppose there's only so much you can do with a source like Blade, especially considering Samura's art style.

What are /a/'s first impressions?
