His sword is sharp, swift and for hire.  500 pieces of gold will buy his services and once he accepts a commission, the fate of his target is sealed!  His name is Ogami Itto, the former Shogunate executioner.  After the evil Yagyu clan frames him for heresy and murders his wife, Ogami roams the Japanese country-side with his infant son Diagoro and a crude wooden baby cart as the paid assassins known as... Lone Wolf and Cub!

Five retainers of the Kuroda Clan seek out Ogami to enlist his aid in saving the Clan.  But first, they must ensure that he is capable of helping them.  Each in turn seeks out Ogami.  If the Lone Wolf can defeat them, then with their dying breaths they will explain his mission - and give him 1/5 of his fee.

Lord Kuroda has retired and his true successor is his son, young Lord Matsumaru.  However Kuroda is so besotted with his mistress that he decides their daughter should succeed him.  He imprisons his son, and is raising his daughter as a boy.  Jikei, a high priest trusted by Kuroda, has been given a document that details the Lord's plans.

Unfortunately for the Kuroda Clan, Jikei is a spy, and he sets off to deliver the incriminating document to the Yagyu, thus ensuring the Kuroda's demise.  Only Ogami Itto has the skill to kill Jikei and recover the document before it reaches the hands of the evil Lord Yagyu Retsudo.  

After retrieving the document, Ogami learns his mission is not quite finished.  The only sure way to ensure the rightful succession is to kill Lord Kuroda, his mistress and their daughter.  But, in order to reach the demented Lord, he must confront and slay Lord Kuroda's loyal retainers - the same men who, knowing it meant certain death, hired Ogami to save their Clan!

    LaserDisc Grading

    We spot play test all used LaserDiscs (with the exception of our Budget titles) and will note any signs of laser rot we may find.  LD's that have never been opened we obviously cannot guarantee their state. 

    We encourage you to view all the pictures and read our comments on the conditions, as we find these to be more beneficial than a standard grade. Occasionally we'll use a grade range (ie: VG / VG+) for either disc or cover if condition is borderline and hard to stick in one category.

    Mint:

    LaserDisc - only given to sealed discs, or films we personally acquired new, opened them but never played. Of course since the disc is sealed we cannot guarantee there are no pressing flaws or minor warping, or Laser Rot, and since LaserDiscs are out of print, we cannot except returns or exchanges on sealed records that have been opened.

    Cover - is still sealed.

    Near Mint (NM):

    LaserDisc - looks like new.

    Cover - may have light typical storage wear, but overall looks new.

    Excellent (EX):

    LaserDisc - may have one or two light marks (not scratches) but should play with no issues.

    Cover - has some very minor cosmetic issue, like a light crease, light ring wear, nothing that is very noticeable.

    Very Good Plus (VG+):

    LaserDisc - may have some scuffs and light surface marks / scratches, but should play with no issues.  

    Cover - will have noticeable wear such as ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc.  Could be a couple items (not all) and they should not be major.

    Very Good (VG):

    LaserDisc - may show a fair amout of surface wear but should play through without hanging up, may have light signs of laser rot (white speckling).

    Cover - will have a couple cosmetic issues ring wear, seam splitting, writing on cover, creases, etc and it will be very pronounce.

    Good (G):

    LaserDisc - we will not list discs that aren't VG or better.

    Cover - cover is damaged to a point where it is not usable to house a record. All the seams are split, the panels are moldy, major writing all over, etc.   The only time we'll list something with a cover in this shape is if it's rare or the disc is in great shape.

    Orders ship within two business days.

    Rest assured, unlike MANY sellers and even large companies, we know how to ship vinyl (and LaserDiscs) correctly! We used high quality mailers, two to three cardboard stiffners and if the album you are buying is used it is shipped outside the cover to prevent damage to the seams in transit. When it comes to shipping LaserDiscs we don't always ship outside the cover as in transit seam wear is not as common. If you want your discs shipped outside the cover feel free to note that at checkout in the message box.

    See our new shipping page HERE for all rates and information.

    Please note we no longer ship to the following:
    Germany - because of your LUCID packaging registration requirements
    UK (including Ireland & Scotland) - because of your Brexit VAT registration requirements
