Fuck yeah they finally added this! It's been a while since I saw this but as I recall this was a pretty odd, lovely little movie. The plot takes myth and fiction very literally which can be very charming and sincere. Mifune is always a delight to watch and the science fiction vs. ancient Japanese warrior ending is pretty fun. Good stuff!
