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.

One of the most un-credited great films. . .
13 February 2001 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

After reading more than my fair share of reviews for a vast number of different movies I have noticed a certain trend, people judge to harshly on what the expected to see. I figure if you go into a movie open-minded not expecting anything certain than you will have better feelings towards it then if you try and watch but have pre-created standards you want it to reach.

Since I try not to be hypocritical I watched this movie with a very clean slate and open-mind, and was very much pleased. Since it is not a mainstream title or award winning for that matter I did not know quite what to expect, but in all truth I enjoyed it a good deal more than Ninja Scroll. Lovely animation, deep story, and the always joyful ninja hack-n-slashing combined extremely well to one of my personal favorite animes ever made.

I am not promising that you will enjoy it, but just give it a chance and you may come out with a pleasant surprise.
