$130 in the USA? It costs less than $100 here.
I mean yeah, it had those genres, but I personally focus on execution, and how well it does 'everything'. Logical and rationale characters along with themes and metaphors that meld together with general story plots and devices win big pts,.
A friend bought my T50RP more than a year ago at B&H and I think that store tends to sell things a bit more expensive than normally but then it's nowhere near as high as the price in Europe. It makes the T50RP look expensive and not the cheap and cheerful bargain that it is.
There's that but I think that Bushi Road gave me the same feeling as Broken Blade did to me when I first watched it. It made me want more and for a moment, I can't stop thinking about it.
But then to each of its own tastes.
My friend posted this in FB.
OK, it's in French and for those who don't know what it talks about, Ki-oon (a French manga publisher) is holding a big competition on creating a 20 page Manga based around the theme of Vengeance. The winner will get a €5000 check and a publishing contract with Ki-oon. They also have invited 3 well known Mangakas to judge the entries: they are Kaoru Mori (Bride Stories), Etorouji Shiono (Übel Blatt) and Tetsuya Tsutsui (Prophecy).
Uuuugghh, it's so tempting!
