* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Never mind that the series was a critical darling, which gained a cult following and even influenced political movements in the 70s, anyone you talk to today who took it out of the school library is likely to remember all the sex and nudity.

Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: Manga/KamuiDen was a key milestone in manga, as a medium, growing the beard--so much so, in fact, that the "God of Manga" himself, Tezuka Osamu, would praise it for bringing "Serious drama, characterization, and ideolgy to manga." Tezuka acknowledged a substantial (if grudging) debt to the {{Gekiga}} movement, whose influence on his later, more adult-oriented work is clear.

* ValuesDissonance: Western readers will (or rather would) likey experience this, though it's hard to say whether the foten brutal treatment of female characters is more due to the author's nihilistic bent or actual historical attitudes toward women in feudal Japan.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Sequelitis}}: Very much a YMMV thing. The 80s reboot of KamuiGaiden (itself a sequel/spinoff of Manga/KamuiDen) is by no means bad. But it lacks much of the subversive punch that made the original series a classic. Sadly, this is still the only portion of the Kamui franchise ever to have been published in English.
