Fourteen years after defeating the immortal warrior Himuro Genma and thwarting the Shogun of the Dark's evil plans, Kibagami Jubei continues to roam all over Japan as a masterless swordsman. During his journey, he meets Shigure, a priestess who has never seen the world outside her village. But when a group of demons destroys the village and kills everyone, Jubei becomes a prime target after acquiring the Dragon Jewel - a stone with an unknown origin. Meanwhile, Shigure - along with the monk Dakuan and a young thief named Tsubute - travels to the village of Yagyu. And with two demon clans now hunting down Shigure, Dakuan must once again acquire the services of Jubei to protect the Priestess of Light. Written by
The TV show visits locations are references to the movie; the sets aren't the same as they were in the movie but are very similar (the "bamboo" scene and the "bridge" scene from the opening to the movie, for instance). See more »
I've seen hundreds of hours of anime and this is one of the dullest series around.
The animation is good, the designs are intriguing, the plot...
The plot is basically people fighting over an object, again and again and again. Its six episodes of material stretched to 13 as we get fights and more fights and people running through the woods and more fights and not a heck of a lot more than that.
Its a step down from Dragon Ball and Pokemon.
Watch the movie instead. Watch the movie and you'll see what great animated story telling is all about.
This is on my very short list of things to avoid at all costs.
