Product description

Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

A peak achievement of Japanese animation (anime), a propulsive mix of samurai action adventure and supernatural fantasy from writer-director Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Supernatural Best City). This is defiantly animation for grown-ups, complete with fountains of blood, plenty of naked flesh, and (in both the subtitled and dubbed versions) some decidedly strong language. (Students of Japanese language should pick up some useful expressions.) The plot sounds like a 16th century variation on The X Files: an entire village has been wiped out by a mysterious plague and an anti-government conspiracy of invulnerable demons seems to be responsible. A wandering ninja, Jubei, and his female counterpart, Kagero, team up to defeat the plotters. Jubei is a classic reluctant hero, agreeing to participate in the mission only after being fed a slow-acting poison; the antidote will be supplied after he co-operates. And Kagero, a looker whose embrace is lethal, is a femme fatale with a difference that seems distinctively Japanese: sexual contact itself is poisonous, especially for a warrior with a pure soul. --David Chute, Amazon.com
