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.

Great movie, is it a continuation?
15 March 2004 | by starstate1See all my reviews

Jumps to much from ninja scroll, and i haven't seen enough of the series to see if they tie it together at all, i have vol 1 and 2

really short, two episodes i guess they call them. rounds out around one hour.

aside from that, it completely satisfies all longings for good anime. i have only a couple of complaints, but they are definitely overridden by the greatness of this movie. jubei once again delivers as a classic anime character, complete with very graphic death scenes. Ripped off arms, religious underlying, more demons, and maidens being ravaged. Definitely true to the series.
