Fusé: Memoirs of a Huntress (Fuse: Teppou Musume no Torimonochou) takes place in Japan during an era that is alien to most audiences. Its narrative, too, is partly based on a Japanese work of fiction that spans over a hundred volumes. You can imagine my shock upon hearing NIS America would risk publishing a niche anime movie that is so culturally dependant, but my reservations seem unwarranted in retrospect. Memoirs of a Huntress is foreign, but it’s executed in a manner that is quite inclusive and informative.
