    Ok, now I would like to thank my good friend Bebop0083 for special help for this video.

    Wow, this video has sucked the life out of me, my greatest work (to me) and took over a month to create.
    When I first saw Samurai 7, I knew I liked it, but after I saw episode 16 I knew I wanted to make a vid about it, there aren't that many S7 vids. However I didn't know what I wanted it to be about, but one of my friends suggested the song Soul of a Vagabond to Stratovarius. After listening to it, I realized how perfect the lyrics were to Samurai 7, and thus this vid was born.

    First I had to watch all 26 episodes again @_@, then map out parts I wanted to use...

    And finally this long epic AMV is finished. 7:20, matching almost every lyric, it's awesome how this song is perfect for the series, I didn't have a lot of trouble matching lyrics.

    As for the pace of the AMV, since the first 1:30 is an instrumental, I used it to introduce the viewers to the main characters of this AMV, the seven samurai. They are introduced in this order:

    Kambei, Kikuchiyo, Katsuhiro, Shichiroji, Heihachi, Gorobei, and Kyuzo. Then I started telling their "story" when the lyrics start, filling the other instrumentals with other fight scenes. Even showing the death of 4 samurai in the same order as it happens in the series....

    This video contains MASSIVE spoilers, I held nothing back, it does use all 26 episodes.

    If you are a Samurai 7 fan, you should definately check this out.

    Anyway, I hope fans of this song and most of all Samurai 7 fans will enjoy. I had a lot of fun making it, and comments are always welcome. :)

    Oh and you need to follow the lyrics of the song for full effect of the AMV, here they are:

    Pack on my back I wander
    Over mountains across the seas
    My yearning soul keeps roaming
    In the endless search for peace

    sky is my roof, my shelter
    Stars shine and light my way
    Earth is my bed, my altar
    On this road that leads to nowhere

    In silence I scream but no one listens to me
    Absolution, salvation, my sins won't leave me be
    The first cry, the last breath
    We are born to die
    This madness neverending
    Don't know the reason why
    Soul of a vagabond
    Illusion, delusion, we are born to live
    Temptation, damnation, starvation, deformation

    The road goes on forever
    It's an old and trustworthy friend
    I have tasted its dust and treasures
    By my twisted mind won't mend

    My burden is heavy to carry
    My destiny lies ahead
    My spirit is always leaving
    For this road that leads to nowhere...

    In silence I scream but no one listens to me
    Absolution, salvation, my sins won't leave me be
    The first cry, the last breath
    We are born to die
    This madness neverending
    Don't know the reason why
    Soul of a vagabond
    Illusion, delusion, we are born to live
    Temptation, damnation, starvation, deformation

    In silence I scream but no one listens to me
    Absolution, salvation, my sins won't leave me be
    The first cry, the last breath
    We are born to die
    This madness neverending
    Don't know the reason why

    Illusion, delusion, we are born to live
    Temptation, damnation, starvation, deformation
    In silence I scream but no one listens to me
    (Soul of a vagabond)
    Absolution, salvation, my sins won't leave me be
    The first cry...
