Uh oh. Here's to hoping they have recruited a totally new development team than what they had for the first attempt at a television series.

Well, I'm curious. There are barely anything new that has the intensive brutality of the Ninja Scroll movie.

The movie kicked ass, the series is okay.So I can't wait for this to come out.

Hell ya.
The original was oodles of fun.

Oh hey, is that a new news moderator?

And interesting, I thought this series was dead.

Hope this turns out well. I loved the 1st movie and personally I thought the series was enjoyable though kinda less ominous than the movie was. Ninja Resurrection was an interesting North American marketing follow up with a different Jubei and plot that was quite similar in style to the Ninja Scroll movie. It wasn't as good, but it was still entertaining.

i wont mind aslong as it has retro animaton style and is directed by the creator of the original

What in the...
This came out of nowhere.

The TV series was directed by Tatsuo Satou only (not the original creator). I submitted a request for "director" to be removed from Kawajiri's name on the TV series staff. This new project will most likely be directed by Kawajiri, the original creator, himself.

This should be pretty hilarious.
