Shintaro The Samurai (Overview)
The Samurai proved to be highly successful despite its initially very limited budget. It was the first Japanese TV program ever screened in Australia, where it premiered in 1964 and built up a remarkably large fan-base among the local young audience at the time, rapidly becoming a cult favourite. Despite its massive popularity in Australia as well as success in Japan, New Zealand and the Philippines, the series was not widely screened elsewhere and its fame remains largely restricted to those countries.
Because of this, information about episodes cast and crew is quite limited, and largely listed are the major characters of the series. So excuse me please in actresses remain unnamed throughout these entries.
