5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in Japanese and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This epic masterpiece is about a group of 16th century samurai who are hired to defend a small Japanese village that finds itself annually raided by an army of bandits who steal the meager crops harvested by the peasants. Tired of relinquishing their food supply but woefully inept in combat skills, the villagers decide to hire a band of samurai to protect them. In addition to the primary conflict between the villagers and the bandits, much of the tale revolves around young Katsushiro's coming-of-age, both sexually and emotionally. Kikuchiyo's search for acceptance forms the other major storyline. Indeed, everyone in Seven Samurai is searching: for adventure, for experience, for freedom from their oppressors

"La película transcurre en el Japón de la época Tokigawa (siglo XV). La casualidad ha permitido que unos campesinos se enteren de la eminente llegada de bandidos que se proponen asolar al pueblo después de la cosecha. Para protegerse deciden comprometer a unos guerreros mercenarios. Una empresa como ésta es muy peligrosa ya que hay un profundo abismo social entre los que una vez pertenecieron a la clase de los señores y los campesinos, verdaderos esclavos en esta época feudal. A pesar de las dificultades, los habitantes del pueblo se proveen de la ayuda de un grupo de siete samuráis más o menos hambrientos. Convertidos en mercenarios de estos campesinos, los samurais enseñan al pueblo a defenderse". -- Envase

Nei tempi in cui le campagne giapponesi erano infestate dal brigantaggio, una banda di briganti a cavallo invade un giorno un villaggio sottraendo ai contadini i viveri e quanto possiedono, trascinando via alcune donne. Prima d'allontanarsi i briganti promettono di ritornare al tempo del raccolto. Per premunirsi contro tale eventualità il capo del villaggio decide di ricorrere all'aiuto dei samurai ed incarica un giovane contadino di andarne in cerca. Non è facile ottenere l'aiuto degli orgogliosi guerrieri, avidi di gloria e di lauti compensi, ma il giovane riesce a raccogliere sette vecchi soldati. Condotti al villaggio i samurai si mettono all'opera: predispongono la difesa, rizzando palizzate e addestrando alla lotta gli uomini del villaggio. Quando i quaranta banditi vengono all'attacco, incontrano una strenua difesa e vengono alla fine tutti uccisi, uno dopo l'altro. Ma la vittoria è costata cara ai difensori: quattro samurai ed alcuni contadini sono morti
