Ok but fun to watch

"This movie is OK. It isn't the greatest anime I've ever seen but it by far isn't the worst anime I have seen. First of all it is REALLY dopey. It's about a ninja named Shishimaru who is seeking revenge on an "imortal ninja killer" named Ginnai Doma who killed one of Shishimaru's friends and nearly killed him. This movie is good in the sense that it is just a simple, fun movie to watch on a rainy day or if you have nothing else to do. Be warned though... it has the WORST ending to any movie I have ever seen, anime or not. The animation is good sometimes but pretty bad most of the time. It is alittle confusing in the sense that it takes place in the 1500's and there are robots(!) that kill ninjas and the like. What is confusing about that is that there is absolutly no explaination of how they got here. All they say is that the leader of the robots and people with guns and tanks "shouldn't have them." So, if you are looking for an alright anime that is fun to watch (if you dont take it seriously that is) then I recommend it. If you aren't sure if it is for you then rent it before you buy it, so you dont waste money. If you do like this I would also recommend anything dragon ball z (i dont care for it THAT much), or ninja scroll or Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma."

"This is a smart and really neat piece of japanimation.The story is of Shishimaru of the Iga ninja prefecture in 1590 Japan.lord Nobunaga Oda(ancient japanese warord)has destroyed most of the prefectures around the nation of Japan.i know what you are thinking typical ninja medival samurai stuff.Well...you are right,but..Lord Nobunaga's army has the most technological and out of this world military force thte world has ever seen,far greater then our technology today.Not only this he has allied himself with the immortal ninja killer Ginnai Doma,whom no one can destroy.Shishimaru's iga ninja squad has been wiped out by this evil monster of a man and he know has made killing Ginnai personal!This is a good anime with plenty of violence for the ultimate anime fan or those who have started watching it."
