Review: Ninja Scroll Series


Plot Summary: 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.

This is one of the series that I really enjoyed and wished that they made more episodes! This series came out years after the original Ninja Scroll Movie came out years ago. The storyline doesnt follow the original story completely but it does have the same demons fighting to get the Dragon Jewel. Jubei is the main character, who is an extremely skilled swordsman taking out demon after demon protecting Shigure. Jubei is pretty funny, and he is roaming around with his rat pack trying to accomplish their mission. The storyline is great, and the animation is extremely well done, they did a really good job with the dubbing. I really recommend it for those who like ninja story lines with amazing animaion.
