3.0 out of 5 stars Jubei's back 8 Dec 2007
Over ten years after Ninja Scroll, This TV series was quietly released. There are 13 episodes in total (4 for Vol 1 and 2, 5 for the 3rd) that take place in ancient feudal Japan, as did the film, and includes a huge variety of new original characters that reminds fans why they fell in love with the film. Fascinating creatures that, almost, give the 8 devils a run for their money. But Jubei is not alone in this series, he is "Accompanied" by the old government spy Dakuan, and meets new characters: Shigure a mysterious young woman bored of her life in a remote village and Tsubute the thief thrown in mostly for comedic value, in between a raging quest to find the elusive "Dragon Stone".

But there are others eager to unlock the power of this stone, the Kimon and the Hiruko Clans, two syndicates that both have an array of super powered demons with abilities like you wouldn't believe: being able to reattach limbs, release webs and little demonic parasites, earth/nature melding, and so many other indescribable talents. While the animation is a slight disappointment compared to the movie, it still holds a high standard for an anime series. A major downside in the series is that it is a 15, instead of an 18, with less violence/bad language/nudity - good stuff, but dont get me wrong, there is still plenty of sword slicing, blood spraying, demon decapitation to keep you entertained for hours with each episode ranging from 20 to 25 minutes. And if that isn't enough there are a couple of extra features thrown in, like interviews with the directors, voice actors and composers, art galleries and an in depth look at the True character of Jubei Kibagami and his exploits that are lightly based on in the story.
