Embrace the endless fighting, killing, and the hatred and sorrow that come with it. Basilisk brings the viewers into a cycle of war between two powerful ninja clans. Throughout centuries, the Iga clan and the Kouga clan have known none other than animosity and vengeance towards each other. Amidst this purgatory, the head of Iga and the head of Kouga love each other and decided to end the centuries of conflict through the act of marriage.

I can actually make a 3 word summary for this anime. It would go like this : KILL, KILL, KILL.

Heartless killing, endless dying. That pretty much made up the story. Almost every character was just blood thirsty, all except this anime’s Romeo and Juliet, aka Gennosuke and Oboro. It’s another story of forbidden love, I suppose. The forbidden love was a foot note for me – I was more engrossed by the fight scenes and the dramatic deaths of the ninjas.

Recommendations

Similar in depth and action, it's more emotional although not as realistic.
both got a lot of action, its about ninja clans, both got really cool techniques. And both are creepy when it comes to monster. Both got 'immortal' bosses and rape scenes. In short both are good
