Jiyu Nanohana is an ordinary schoolgirl until she runs across a scatterbrained 300 year old samurai who tells her that she is the reincarnation of Yagyu Jubei. With the help of the "Lovely Eyepatch" she transforms into the legendary swordsman whenever she needs to use his awesome fighting ability, which she needs to do quite often as a rival clan is dead set on conquering Yagyu to satisfy an old family grudge.

I say this specifically for the humor and the presentation of some secondary characters, with Bantaro as the supreme manifestation of this type: he talks too much, appears as a ...

i watched this over a period of time and wasn't really interested, so my memory of it is vague. the story is of a girl Jiyu or nicknamed Juubee and how she receives this eye patch that harnesses the power to transfer the soul of the historical Juubee.
