Synopsis

Fourteen years after defeating the immortal warrior Himuro Genma and thwarting the Shogun of the Dark's evil plans, Kibagami Jubei continues to roam all over Japan as a masterless swordsman. During his journey, he meets Shigure, a priestess who has never seen the world outside her village. But when a group of demons destroys the village and kills everyone, Jubei becomes a prime target after acquiring the Dragon Jewel—a stone with an unknown origin. Meanwhile, Shigure—along with the monk Dakuan and a young thief named Tsubute—travels to the village of Yagyu. And with two demon clans now hunting down Shigure, Dakuan must once again acquire the services of Jubei to protect the Priestess of Light.

After watching the original movie and falling in absolute love with it I learned of the TV series. I was so ecstatic to watch what I thought would be an incredible series, to say I was dissapointed would be an understatement.

Story: This isn't where this anime fails. In fact I don't even mind the story, it's interesting but not incredibly original. Everyone wants to kill Shigure and there's only Jubei and two minor characters to protect her. Storyline progression isn't that great, I found myself in the 5th episode going "is something going to happen?"

Animation: Watching this anime read more

Throughout this entire series I was up and down in deciding whether it was good or bad. I decided it is neither. Ninja Scroll: The Series is beyond the scope of simple definitions such as good or bad. It is B-movie! The only, and best, way to describe this anime is through comparing it to classic American B-movies, so I'd say you could call it B-anime.

Most of you will be going into the series after watching the movie, which I admit was much better, and so will most likely be disappointed. That's because you'll also expect the same quality, but I'm warning you that you'll read more

What a terrible anime.

I truly had high hopes for the Ninja Scroll anime series, based of the classic anime movie. Boy I was in for a major disappointment. The anime takes place fourteen years after the movie following Kibagami Jubei who's still roaming Japan and meets Shigure a priestess and things go down hill fast from there. Ninja Scroll the movie was a classic. The story was concise, the animation was great, the action was exciting and the characters were interesting. The series on the other hand was the complete reverse. The story was unbelievable and the tone of the anime had no drama for read more

I actually enjoyed this anime...well I found it 'somewhat' entertaining to be exact. I'd rate it overall as a 6.8/10.

The story is pretty basic if you're familiar with this type of ronin/ninja genre in anime. Princess is being chased by bad guys, runs into a strong ninja/samurai and they end up journeying together while he protects her. Then some others end up tagging along with them on their journey. Im sort of fan of this type of thing so you can count that as part of why I found this entertaining when some others did not.

I have to admit the story dosent draw read more
