What if the modern army and the warriors of the Sengoku period fought each other? The original story by Ryo Hanmura was born from such a question, and it has been successfully adapted to film in "G.I. Samurai," a masterpiece of Samurai sci-fi action.

The music of this film, long thought to have been lost, has finally been found more than 40 years after its release!

The legend of the Samurai sound is revealed not only through the music used in the film, but also through the many unused sound sources that have been left behind!
This is the final complete 2-CD set that includes "Lullaby of You" by Joe Yamanaka, "Theme of Sengoku JSDF" by Toru Matsumura, and many other theme songs and insert songs, all of which have been remastered.
What is history trying to make us do?

A squadron of Japanese Self-Defense Force soldiers find themselves transported through time to their country's warring states era, when rival samurai clans were battling to become the supreme Shogun. The squad leader, Lt. Iba, sees this as the perfect opportunity to realize his dream of becoming the ruler of Japan. To achieve this, he teams his troops up with those of Kagatori, a samurai daimyo who also aspires to become Shogun. Are either of these power-hungry warriors to be trusted? --- from IMDB
