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 The Fox-2

Viewable if not too painful at times

I just watch the first 4 episodes of this series and found in enjoyable. The charters are okay, the jokes are not he funniest, but I did find myself chuckling a few times. There is a running fixation on the main character's breasts, which gets old REALLY fast. Not to mention that she is supposed to be a Jr. High student. The English voice acting is down right dreadful at times, but it's very rare that you ever get an Anime that's dubbed well. That aside, if you enjoy the type of Japanese humor found in animes like Ramna ½ or Slamdunk! you'll find this enjoyable.
