Added 2/3/2006
The opening to The Hakkenden is the best I've ever seen in an anime and the it's likely to be the best I'll ever see. Every time I watch it I'm close to tears because the evocative music and visuals strike a chord with me. It's 1min 36secs of pure excellence.
When I was in college working on my video degree I attempted to make a live-action video based on this but it fell through and I only got as far as the storyboard :(

Anyway, this shot of Shinbei Inue is important because his flute playing is echoed in the soundtrack and it's visually impressive as the camera quickly zooms out to reveal the other warriors at the foot of the rock.

I'm on the lookout for a close-matching background
