Synopsis

Japan is secretly controlled by a tyrannical group of ninjas called the Shinogara. Their finest assassin is a man named Hayate Kanuma, whose father leads the Shinogara.

Hayate, however, knows that the secret society's control over Japan is wrong. Sacrificing his own safety, Hayate kills his father. Now he's on the run, safe almost nowhere from his vengeful former comrades except perhaps for the one hiding place he decides upon: his sister. After possibly being fatally wounded, Hayate is able to transfer his soul into his sister's body, temporarily sharing it with her. His sister, Shiori, can awaken Hayate and call upon his ninja abilities when the Shinogara are close at hand but each time she does so, a little more of her true self is lost. This arrangement can't possibly go on forever, so how will Hayate finally defeat the Shinogara?

Both the unfortunate and misinformed creation of a sickly industry and a train-wreck of an anime in content, Akai Hayate is a work that should never have existed. It is one of four OVA's developed for Studio Pierrot's "Anime V Comic Rentaman". As the title suggests, this was an episodic anthology release of OVAs for the rental anime market, produced in 1991.

The plot or, what semblance there is of one, revolves around a ninja family with fantastical powers, battling with innumerable foes of whose existence is never explained, vying for control of the shogunate from the shadows. The story begins with an injured brother read more
