Blazing Samurai

  • slideshow_large


Hank, a loveable dog with a head full of dreams about becoming a great samurai, sets off in search of his destiny. Unfortunately for him, what he finds instead is the strange and unwelcoming town of Kakamucho. There, he sticks out like a sore thumb, for he is a dog and everyone else is...a cat! And as we all know, cats really, REALLY don't like dogs.
Desperate to please the townsfolk, Hank unwittingly becomes part of the dastardly narcissistic Ika Chu's plans to rid Kakamucho of all its inhabitants. Just one small obstacle stands in Ika's way of world domination (okay, Kakamucho-domination) and his evil plan is to trick Hank into helping him, by driving out the townsfolk forever.
Step forward Jimbo, a once mighty samurai who has since fallen from grace, and Emiko, a feisty kitten who shares Hank's dreams. Together this mismatched trio will embark on a journey that sees them overcome prejudices and learn the true meaning of friendship.
