Synopsis
Review This is a ninja adventure, full of violence, bloodletting, high adventure, and supernatural feats.
Jubei, a loner, is drawn against his will into moves to counter a plot against the Shogunate government. He is the sole survivor of an attack by a fearsome man-monster on a ninja patrol, and finds himself allied with a beautiful ninja-girl and an aged priest.
There's plenty of action, animated with style, plenty of strange incident, and plenty of plot. The dubbing does it no particular favours, (rather like modifying a stylish vernacular building with cheaper bricks) but asides from that, this is a ripping good swords & sorcery yarn with a strong Japanese flavour.
