Samurai Yuichi, a descendant of the famous warrior Miyamoto Usagi, embarks on an epic adventure to become a genuine samurai in Samurai Rabbit: The Usagi Chronicles. Yuichi leads a ragtag band of misfit heroes – including a rogue bounty hunter, a cunning ninja, an acrobatic pickpocket, and a devoted pet lizard – in battles against depth-charging moles, metal-tipped winged bats, and creatures from another dimension – all in the quest to become the best Samurai Usagi!
