This seemingly bizarre animated short focuses around a samurai reincarnated into the modern era as a coffee vending machine who fights his former enemies also reincarnated and develops a relationship with a girl of the era. The story flows rather smoothly for a half-hour short as there is enough time to explore its bizarre premise and focus on the budding relationship between Jin and Hemi. Comedic bits come from the rather bizarre predicaments that arise with Jin and other reincarnated folks such as Jin still able to dispense coffee while in human form and fighting off warriors while his foes are still in the forms they were reincarnated as, which worked well for the most part for me. The animation is a bit on the plain side and its fairly short length would keep me from wanting to watch this frequently. But if you do want a charming and short rom-com to check out, Coffee Samurai is a decent time-killer.
