"Glorious and gory", anime with a 100 percent Rotten Tomato rating, (adult-ish) also with George Takei and Kevin Branagh

"Noizumi, whose mixed-race heritage inspired the story, has described the show as "Kill Bill meets Yentl." Though it leans much closer to Tarantino than Streisand, Blue Eye Samurai deftly counterbalances the elaborately choreographed violence (spearheaded by director Jane Wu and her team) with moments of pure beauty, deep longing, and even amusing gentleness."

There's a trailer at the link, and it's gotten a second season.

I've only seen the first two episodes of season one, but it's really well done.

Also would advise not reading any reviews, because they all have a spoiler for the first episode.
