Quotes

Ayame: I wanted to slay the monster that destroyed Kasumi, but to do that, I had to go to Hyuga and Hagakure.
Sakon: Ha. Vengence? What good would it do for you to go to Hagakure? Our enemy has the power to destroy our hometowns within one night. Do you think that with just the fighting force of Hagakure, you could defeat it?
Ayame: If not, then why are you going to Hagakure?
Sakon: Ha. well, I wonder.

Average anime, nothing special
26 May 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

The animation is good, but not too good. Not bad either, but a little grainy. The plot is complex, but not really thought through, and it is not conveyed in an edible manner. Things happen too fast, characters all look alike and you don't know where they came from and why people care when they die. The fighting scenes are decent, but I think they used too much of that "slow motion after the sword hits" which actually doesn't show anything, just the spurts of blood.

Watch it if you want to be sure you see all Japanese anime with ninjas :) but other than that, don't bother if you have something good to watch.
