YMMV / Battles Without Honor and Humanity

  • Designated Hero: Shozo Hirono is this in nearly every film except the second one, where Katsutoshi Otomo takes this position.
  • Sequelitis: The "New Battles Without Honor Or Humanity" are widely considered to be inferior rehashes of the originals, and the Region 1 Bluray doesn't bother mentioning them in the retrospective on the series.
