Samurai Deeper Kyo (サムライ ディーパー キョウ Samurai Dīpā Kyō) is a Japanese anime series based on the manga written and illustrated by Akimine Kamijyo. The series is set during the Edo Period of Japan's history. The series follows Demon Eyes Kyo, a feared samurai who seeks to regain his body after his soul is sealed inside the body of his rival, Kyoshiro Mibu. Kyo is then joined in his search by the bounty-hunter Yuya Shiina, the heir to the Tokugawa shogunate Benitora, and Yukimura Sanada, a known rival of the Tokugawa.

Synopsis

In the year 1600, at the fog-covered battlefield of Sekigahara, a fierce battle was waged by two exemplary swordsmen. One was Kyoshiro Mibu, a skilled and noble warrior in possession of the unique powers of the Mibu Clan. The other was the thousand-man slayer, with eyes and hair the color of blood, "Demon Eyes" Kyo. Their legendary clash was cut short when a meteor from the heavens fell down upon that battlefield, leaving both to vanish in its wake.

Samurai Deeper Kyo begins four years after that battle, when a gun-wielding bounty hunter by the name of Yuya Shiina hunts down Kyoshiro—now a perverted, traveling medicine-man who has built up a large debt. On her way to claim his bounty, they are attacked by an inhuman monster that seeks to devour Kyoshiro. This encounter awakens "Demon Eyes" Kyo, whose mind has been trapped inside of Kyoshiro's body ever since that fateful battle. Thus begins a grand tale of legendary two swordsmen and the discovery of their secrets.
