300 years ago, legendary swordsman Yagyu Jubei led his clan of samurai triumphantly against the villainous Ryujoji clan. On his deathbed, Yagyu transfers his abilities into a heart-shaped eyepatch which he instructs his attendant, Koinosuke, to bestow upon a worthy successor. In the present day, Koinosuke (whose aging has been all but stopped) finds this successor in perky schoolgirl Nanohana Jiyu, who her father, coincidentally, has nicknamed "Jubei." Unfortunately for Koinosuke, Jiyu doesn't want to embody the spirit of Yagyu Jubei. The descendants of the Ryujoji still bear a grudge against the Yagyu, so Jiyu reluctantly accepts the eyepatch to become Yagyu Jubei and put an end to the centuries-old feud. Written by
When I first watched this anime at NekoCon 2000, I only got to watch a few of the episodes. They were good alright. I wanted to get this for my collection and I did. My father got me the entire collection for Christmas. It was a great series. My favorite funny part was when Bantaro and his boys attacked and beaten up Jiyu's dad because he was chasing her and she told her father to leave her alone. When Jiyu met a samurai named Koinosuke, he presented her with a Lovely eye-patch, and she transformed in Yagyu Jubei, the II. There were 3 things that happen at school. First, two girls meet Jiyu and form a trio called "The New Student Lovies", and they plan to go to a desert shop but never got to. Second, an enemy from the Ryujoji clan challenges Jiyu aka Yagyu Jubei to a duel. She does win, and turns that evil person into a nice person with a swing of her sword. And third, Bantaro tries to give Jiyu a love letter. The series features the cast from: BetterMan,Crest of the Stars, Fancy Lala, G-Gundam, and others. In closing if you don't have this one. Buy it. You will see what I mean.
