Storyline

Set in the time of the Tokugawa regime, where the Shogun has outlawed the Japanese Christians, since they fear that their religion will incite rebellion and chaos. However, they believe in a prophecy, that a man named Tenshi, will hoist the cross and become the new Jesus. But there is a darker prophecy, if Tenshi does not become Christ, he will return and be reborn as Satan. Jubei Yagyu and a few others can fight against the looming evil that is to come.

Ummm... Okay
16 December 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Well... if you like super disturbing anime gorefests that go beyond the definition of gore, then this is the one for you. Although I have to warn you that some of it gets really ridiculous at times (a rocket-man?) and disturbing (kid's decapitated heads on pikes, deadly orgasms, and a birth scene which is rather explosive to say the least). There's also a very strange mix of a very factual historical lesson at beginning of each episode followed by the actual anime which is perhaps on another planet in terms of the facts. Well, in a nutshell, if you like watching swords go through flesh in all manners and want it to be packaged in a fairly watchable story, then have a look at this one. If you're more mainstream and are a bit queezy even with anime, pick something else up.
