Ninja Action and Adventure Ahoy!
29 September 2010 | by lordclaymoreSee all my reviews

Akai Hayate is one of those forgotten gems of the VHS era. This film has a fantastic cast of characters and a powerful soundtrack. Akai Hayate tells the story of a group controlling Japan from behind the scenes using ninja with supernatural powers and the ability to awaken "Shadow Armor" that gives them added power and shows their affiliation with a certain animal as well. Hayate, our protagonist, flees with his sister after being hunted for the murder of his father, which he swears he did not commit. While in hiding, he is near death from wounds sustained in battle. He swears to defend his sister with his last breath and uses an esoteric art to transfer his soul into her body so that he may "posess" her in times of need and use his fighting skills to defend her from the forces of their enemies. This is a great mini-series and gets my full seal of approval!
