This sounds so weird to me because I remember the music being different in the original and maybe I prefer the original. Either way considering that this came out in 2000 people have to realize how impressive this animation was in flash back then. It deserves the 5 stars. People don't realize how much of a pain in the balls flash was back in 2000 and if you compare this animation with other 2000 flash animation it is top notch. I was always waiting for a Genryu's Blade 2 and sadly we never got one. Maybe this is how it was meant to be.
