Super series... 18 Aug. 2005
By Mr. Joel M. Highfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This series, i think, follows on after the movie. Jubei, after desroying the eight devil's but losing Kagero, finds himself in yet another adventure as his swordsmanship has become famous. He promises a ninja to keep the sacred Dragon stone safe and to give it to the light maiden. But two waring ninja clans also want the stone. Now Jubei must keep the saftey of his new friends (including a return for Dakoan)and the Dragon stone until they find the light maiden. With superb animation, breathtaking battles, and a whole host of characters that really fit, this series has it all for the action anime/manga lover. A must have for all anime fans everywhere and i would definitley recomend it to anyone.

Buy it and enjoy.

Fantastic series, beautiful presentation 22 Jun. 2005
By Jill Kong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This series is a great follow-up to the classic film. For those who love action, Ninja Scroll has that and more! Even beyond the many and varied monsters that the protagonist Jubei encounters, what's truly amazing about the series is the balance between action, drama, and humor. I've been watching anime for years, and I was still blown away Ninja Scroll TV!

Any fan of great packages will appreciate the treatment of the box set. The artwork (which you can't see from the outside) is gorgeous and vivid, and the Limited Edition version comes in a shiny silver case with a really sweet Jubei action figure. The bonus fourth disc has some cool stuff, the best being a video tour of Mad House Animation Studio, and the audio commentary tracks a close second. I'm really pleased with this set, and I recommend it to anyone who's a fan of either Ninja Scroll or cool anime sets in general.

AWESOME!!! 25 Sept. 2006
By D. Kalmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When I bought this series I though it would continue from where the movie took off. I was wrong, but delightfully so. The story in the series is awesome!!! Its nothing like the movies, but the introduction to so many villans (deamons) and good guys presents a whole new out look at Jubei. He is still one bad dude in the series. I wouls Highly recommend this series to any Ninja Scroll lover!!! The action is just as awesome as the movie, and the blood is to die for!!! Five stars hands down.

The Ultimate Box Set 22 Jun. 2005
By Michael Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This box set is an ultimate treat for any anime lover, especially this Ninja Scroll fan. Since the release of The Series I have been anticipating a collection like this. And this was definitely worth the wait. The box set includes all 13 episodes of The Series along with a bonus disc. The bonuses are cool, but I really enjoyed the tour of Mad House, I'd love to work there.

The Limited Version includes a metal tin that's really cool and a really detailed action figure of Jubei, who looks ready to take on G.I. Joe. But the best part has to be the images on the interior case. They include several colorful depictions of Jubei in action, yes there is a lot of red ink.

I recommend this box set to any anime fan, especially all of you Ninja Scroll lovers. Even if you have some of the individuals, this box set is too cool to pass up and a definite centerpiece of any anime fans collection.....

If You Love the Movie, You Might Spit on Its Ugly Cousin 17 Oct. 2013
By Coulter Rail - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Ninja Scroll (the movie) ranks up there with Akira and Ghost in the Shell in terms of gateway-drug anime. I remember, in the mid-90's, being blown away by Akira. But Ninja Scroll is what got me hooked on anime and prompted me to scour the world looking for more. This series resembles nothing of the film. I'd be okay with a fresh approach, but this is an uninspiring product and takes its place as a leader in low-quality anime. I won't crap on it too hard. I believe there's an audience for everything. My goal is to help steer away those who are bothered by low quality, regurgitated themes, plastic characters, and thin storylines. Here we go:

***PROS***

ACTION
There are some ninja battles. They are poorly drawn, lousy with two-frame movements and one-hit-kill lazy choreography, and not reminiscent of the vicious style showcased in Ninja Scroll (film). The action is still there, but doesn't hold a candle to 90% of other anime. Jubei swings his sword once a battle (sometimes twice) to kill his foes. His single swing is also a long-range attack, so it doesn't matter where the villain is, they're dead. If that satisfies you, then great! They try to amass a crew of villains, each with a unique power (much like the 8 Devils of Kimon from the movie). A few of them are intriguing, but are used unimaginatively. The story resembles the thinnest of video game quests. Let's find the Dragon Stone. You can follow the plot from the kitchen while you cook and never miss a thing. (That can be a plus.)

***CONS***

ANIMATION
The darkness of the film is nowhere to be found in this series. The visuals are abrasively bright with vivid colors from the Pokémon palette. There's only one level of shading used in most scenes, which makes the characters look like two-dimensional cutouts. Jubei's clothes are missing detailing, which makes him look a bag of potatoes. Two-frame movements, choppy animation, and pathetic gimmicks attempt to make fights feel epic, but only succeed in letting animators avoid drawing out battles. A slash cuts the screen, then a body lies there to inform the viewer that the attack was successful. I expect a lot more from Japanese animation, and I think most fans do, too.

CHARACTERS
The cast of this show is for ages 14 and below. While Jubei is not bad, he is joined by a token tough female who needs help but won't admit it and a punk street thief who carries about as much charm with him as Jar Jar Binks. The master villain is a Doctor Robotnic Buddha mixed with a Harley Davidson.

STORY
Single track, basic storylines can work if executed with purpose. This story, however, is about as intriguing and thought-provoking as playing a game of Candy Land sober. Find the Dragon Stone, stop the bad guys, and stumble all over a bland world while engaging in side quests to satisfy the worst of regurgitated fables. Fine for kids, but not for Ninja Scroll.

MUSIC
Horrible grunge/rock that has no place in feudal Japan. Jarring and pushy.

This show is just a mis-marketed piece of work. The title needs to be replaced. Call it "Dragon Stone" and park it next to Bleach and Naruto. Just don't confuse it with Ninja Scroll, because this series is its opposite. If you want a ninja series that's adult, full of fantastic battles, gore, and twisted ninjas endowed with special abilities, watch Basilisk. If you like a series that's colorful, action-packed, adult, and funky, watch Samurai Champloo. If you want a youthful, fun ninja adventure with some plain characters, watch Bleach or Naruto. There are better versions of EVERYTHING. This is the lowest doppelganger of them all. If you haven't seen it yet and are bothered by what I've described above, then save your money and the health of your neck; if you get this, you'll be shaking your head for hours.

LIST OF BETTER NINJA/SAMURAI TITLES:
- BASILISK
- KUROZUKA
- SAMURAI CHAMPLOO
- SENGOKU BASARA
- SAMURAI X: TRUST AND BETRAYAL

I'm an animator and writer, so I frequently pour through stacks of anime. If this was helpful or our tastes seem to align, follow along. I'll try to steer you straight.
