Reviews

Madhouse Studios anime following the adventures of a ninja who travels the land hiring out his services for gold or a worthy cause. Jubei Kibagami (voice of Kôichi Yamadera) finds one such cause when he stumbles across Kagero (Emi Shinohara), a female ninja who is the lone survivor of a highly skilled group who were sent to investigate suspicious activity involving Tessai (Ryûzaburô Otomo), a formidable warrior with the ability to turn his skin to stone. Jubei agrees to help Kagero but may have cause to doubt his decision as he finds himself facing an increasingly tough array of enemies. When he discovers that Tessai is affiliated to the Eight Devils of Kimon, a group of ninjas led by his oldest foe Himuro Genma (Daisuke Gôri), it is clear that Jubei will require every ounce of his cunning and swordsmanship to survive the quest.

My god, this is amazing. Ninja Scroll was released a year before I was born, and having finally watched it recently, it still holds up incredibly well.

The story, though nothing ground-breaking, goes with the action very nicely, and has all the set-pieces for a memorable experience. The main protagonist Jubei Kibagami, as badass as he is, still struggles against his formidable foes, which creates both tension and a reason to root for the hero. Not only that, but the villains are all pretty out-there and unique in their own rights. The main antagonist isn't just some Saturday-morning baddie, either. He's someone Jubei has a personal bone to pick with.

As you can tell by the BBFC certificate on the box, this film is not for the kiddies, so if you're not of age, then go back to your Big 3 debates and watch Naruto or something. This is a big-boy's anime!

The action is like getting drunk on the best drink you can think of, and not suffering from a hangover the next morning. From start to finish, the whole film is beautifully-animated, and where a lot of these shows have to cut down on the visual detail to get more precise animation, Ninja Scroll manages to keep the two at a consistently high standard of quality.

The music fits the theme of the show pretty well, and although it sounds a bit like something out of a black-and-white historic fantasy film at times, it kind of adds to the epic fight scenes.

I felt that the film lasted exactly as long as it needed to. An hour and a half of awesome Ninja action that left me feeling completely satisfied and in high-spirits by the end. It doesn't tease you or try to make a point like a little OVA, but it doesn't overstay its welcome like a Lord of the Rings wannabe.

Love, love, love ninja scroll and its in my top 10 animes easy. I was thrilled when I heard Ninja Scroll was being released on blu-ray and the steel case presentation is wonderful. If your a fan of anime and you've never heard of Ninja Scroll then shame on you and watch it right away! Good story, plenty of over the top action and swordplay with a good amount of gore involved. Wonderful animation and one of the best animes to come from Yoshiaki Kawajiri.

I see this movie years ago on dvd and had to buy it on blue-ray the story is about a ninja on his travels who ends up saving a girl and killing a member of a team of deadly assassins who then try to kill him in revenge which in tern uncovers a plot to smuggle gold onto a ship which will help pay for a coo to topple the government the action scenes are decent with swords monsters blood and gore

if your getting into anime id highly recommend this one the case is metal with the artwork painted on comes with 20 page art book which is ok

With another disappointing release. Not to sound too cynical but Manga really have a habit of promising the world and failing to deliver. Ninja Scroll is one of my favourite ever Animes and it deserved the ultimate version, this falls way short.

First problem, albeit not the biggest one but still needs to be mentioned; the aspect ratio is '16:9 pillarboxed' which means big black borders down the sides of the screen. This I can almost forgive as Ninja Scroll was in 4:3, and when it was released on DVD in widescreen people complained about the stretched picture. It's not an easy compromise but there you go. The DVD version included is also the same ratio.

Transfer quality looks good but it has been touched up to the point of removing all the grain from the picture. This is a personal choice as some people like the smoother look, while others prefer it in its original state. It is however littered with white specs of dust and dirt throughout, why these weren't cleaned up ill never know. Ignoring this though, the picture is nice and smooth and looks good for its age, but considering this is one of Mangas major releases for the year, it really should have had a full restoration job done on it. It is the best Ninja Scroll has ever looked in the home, it is just not what it should be.

The other massive flaw is the total lack of bass in the English 5.1 audio track, which is so tinny it almost has an echo; it is an absolute disgrace. The Japanese 2.0 track is much punchier and will be most peoples choice as a result; there is no comparitive English 2.0 track unfortunately. It would have been nice if the previous audio tracks had been added to this release as well, as opposed to one DTS master audio (English) and Japanese 2.0.
