Welcome to Soul of the Seasons

Welcome to Soul of the Seasons, a Ronin Warriors / Yoroiden Samurai Troopers website. This site is dedicated to the four Dark Warlords aka Mashou and Kayura.

Please note I am a fan of both the original Japanese version (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers) and the American dub (Ronin Warriors) of this anime series. Therefore I use both versions of character names on this site. These are displayed in the order of: American dub name / Japanese version name.

The Nakano Broadway Gallery Exhibit ends on October 30th, 2018. I can’t believe they’re still coming out with new merchandise.

In other news (yes, there’s more news!), for those who pre-ordered the blu-ray box set, here’s your first look at the blanket that is included:


Do you remember the Tenku-no-Touma-themed sake that was inspired by the location in Amanohashidate? That same company is making a sake cup to go along with it!


And as a part of the blu-ray release, the cassette drama collection will be remastered and possibly be included, or at least sold alongside, the box set! The cassette dramas were side stories set during the tv series and are considered part of the show’s canon timeline by Sunrise. The voice actors spoke and interacted with each other as their characters to tell the story. It was like watching a tv episode but with your eyes closed. – source

Additionally, a new, mysterious book has been announced for release on December 18th, 2018, tentatively titled: Memorial Book. Fans in Japan are speculating if this could be a reprint of the original Memorials artbooks, or if it’s something brand new! There’s no cover image yet, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see! – source

Phew! I think that’s everything that’s come out of Japan so far! I wish they’d spread the news out so I could catch my breath!
