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.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Very cheap overly heroised freebooter support characters, picked up by the main character on the roadside... A common point of shounen animes sadly.

The anime is supposed to follow one single storyline but since the plot is kind of falling apart there is an episodic feeling. It doesnt have the depth of Basilisk for sure.

You could call it your average half-season anime, saves the day..
If you want to put your brain into powersave mode and wanna see some ...

Well since I am not gonna piss anybody of with this one, the kid gloves... stay on. It is not nice to excessively hurt a dying anime.

This is the anime about the well known movie and it failed to deliver on the enjoyment that we got from the movie.

The story is an a quest to get the ninja scroll from the title, but weird stuff is in the way. This normally would earn any other anime a 4 to a 5, but here I had the movie in the back of my mind and that made the story worse then I expected. It was a ...
