Samurai 7 Coming to the IFC!

FUNimation Entertainment and Rainbow Media sign Broadcast Deal for Akira Kurosawa's Samurai 7

IFC and Voom HD Networks to air Samurai 7 anime series beginning in March 2006

Rainbow Media has acquired broadcast rights to Akira Kurosawa's Samurai 7 from FUNimation Entertainment. This is a great opportunity for anime fans and fans of Akira Kurosawa's classic Seven Samurai. The Independent Film Channel and Voom HD Networks will present the U.S. television premiere of Akira Kurosawa’s Samurai 7 beginning in March 2006.

Shot in high definition with stunning production values from GONZO Digimation, Samurai 7 revisits Kurosawa's epic tale of a small village in feudal Japan that's persecuted by robbers who return every harvest to seize the village's crops. Faced with starvation, the villagers set out on a mission to find and recruit some samurai (master swordsman who adhere to the strict code of honor and loyalty, bushido) to defend them. With no pay to offer except rice, and knowing full well that only down-on-their-luck samurai would even consider accepting such a deal, the villagers can only hope that their saviors will appear before the rice is ready for harvest.

The cable TV premiere of Samurai 7 will air on IFC on Sunday, April 1, 2006 @ 10:30 pm ET / 7:30 pm PT. The half-hour series will air in conjunction with IFC’s popular film strand, "Samurai Saturdays," a weekly presentation of classic, Asian martial-arts-themed movies.

Animania HD will have the U.S. HD premiere on Wednesday, March 1, 2006 at 9:00 pm ET/6:00 pm PT as part of the channel’s new "Animayhem" block.

Story Synopsis:
The Great Kanto desert is a place of extremes. The blasted remains of an ancient civilization destroyed by their own evil deeds. A few surviving descendants still inhabit this stark landscape... and they haven't learned a bloody thing!

Meet Kanta Mizuno. He's not your typical hero and his methods are not always honorable, but he's the closest thing to a good guy the desert's got. Self proclaimed as the "Desert Punk," he's out to make a name for himself as the best handyman for hire. No job is too tough, no opponent too nefarious - Once Desert Punk's on the job, it's as good as done!

That is, until he runs into Junko, the siren of the sands. Double-crossed by these double-D's, Desert Punk finds himself with a job he couldn't complete and a debt he can't repay.
