Here is your typical low budget anime.
It's short, has poor animation, an unoriginal story and tries too combine so many aspects/genres, like putting in absolutely pointless, ludicrous sex scenes and some poor dialogue "bad language". Where as the violence is obvious. The story is so blatant and lame that i can sum it up in a few words - "There's this invincible samurai guy right, and he's gotta kill demons and save a princess, the end?". Although you can't deny the attempt at being a classic, solid epic, you know inside that it really is bad and sets a pretty bad example for films based on the story-line of ancient feudal Japan. The fact is, its been done.. to death.. and the successful film was by far Ninja Scroll. That is the film that sets the bar on Japan's turbulent times (with ninjas, samurais and all that they encompass). It basically is just a watered down Ninja Scroll, but enough about that. I cannot understand why this is in "The Collection", maybe its because it brings back memories of the standards of anime in the past, or maybe someone botched up, big time..
