Remembering the Ronin Warriors (aka Samurai Troopers)

January 11, 2010 in Taiwan, Travel by pacejmiller

I came across this toy in a Taiwanese department store and it brought back some memories.

I am sure I used to watch this anime, though I can’t remember much about it – except that it was very cool.

Unfortunately, I don’t think it ever got much appreciation, other than being looked upon as a poor man’s version of Saint Seiya (aka Knights of the Zodiac).

Thank god for Google and Wikipedia – I now know they are the Ronin Warriors (aka Samurai Troopers).  Gay name but cool armour and weapons.

And of course, the legendary Saint Seiya (Knights of the Zodiac)
