One of the most epic and strong and perhaps one of over the top violent in anime history, Ninja Scroll gave 1993 a big storm and keep storming it's audience even today. When I first saw it, I was use to sailor moon and Disney movies and wasn't prepared for the gore scenes so I got scared but now watching it with adults eyes I can see the true colors of ninja scroll and respect it for it's fandom. ... read more

Description: Jubei is wandering noble sword for hire, but when a chance meeting leads him to save young ninja woman from rape he makes enemies with a group of demonic humans. Jubei and the woman part ways, but later a government spy forces Jubei to join up with her again and investigate the mysterious death of an entire village. The investigation reveals a conspiracy involving the demons and a man from Jubei’s past who is supposed to be dead.

" Dakuan: Well, this ninja girl is very useful. You see she has the technique of poisoning the man she sleeps with... In fact, the man you thought you killed, was poisoned by her. Anyone who makes love to her dies. So you see, she's perfect in this amoral world. "

Another List From Kill Bill (184 movies items)

"Both Ninja Scroll and Kill Bill pay tribute to the "Akira Kurosawa Splatter Samurai" genre of Anime. Jubei, like The Bride, charges head on into a veritable army of sword weilding henchmen and carve them down with his sword in a cloud broken bodies and torrentuously spraying blood."

"1.3. (PC/YouTube) Ultraväkivaltaan, sexiin ja liukuhihnalta tuleviin taistelukohtauksiin juonen rakentelua ennemmin luottava anime. Hahmot ovat - genrelle tyypillisesti - etovasti piirrettyjä, mutta muuten jälki on ehkä hivenen kankeaa animointia lukuun ottamatta näyttävää, etenkin väripaletti miellyttää silmää. Mukaan hivutetussa love stoorissa on yksinkertaisuudessaan todella koskettavaa potkua."
