Ninja Scroll: The Series (2003)

While this series does not completely match the atmosphere of the movie – it feels less sophisticated in execution and writing and some of the secondary characters have a tendency to become a bit annoying – it is quite entertaining and Jubei feels and acts like the Jubei you know from the movie. The plot is rather thin, mostly you’ll get the feeling this series is just one action scene after another, not that this is much different from the movie, but in a series it can become bothersome. Some episodes try to tell a more serious story only to completely miss the mark and feel ludicrous. But I couldn’t help but feel entertained. I just love movies with well done action sequences and some of the enemies were as imaginative as the enemies from the movie.
