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.

Too many death
10 June 2000 | by yy15See all my reviews

It's perfectly ok that people dies in an animation, but there are just way too many death in this one. Start from the very beginning, the story is all around battles, fights, death, and revenge. It goes on and on for entire one and a half hour. It was interesting at the beginning, but I grew very tire after before the show was half way through. Unlike other animations, this one is lack of humor. There are not many interactions between the characters either. The good thing about it is the sword fight scene looks pretty good and the characters look nice.
