"LEGEND OF THE DEVILLegend of the Devil is a live action version of Sword for Truth. It benefits from the extra 30 minutes. The producers use the extra time to explain who the various factions are and how they are intertwined in the storyline. The basic plot is the Hojo clans quest to regain two mystical swords which were taken from the clan after they lost a battle. A demon wants the swords so he can become immortal. A Christian samurai(I know that's a bit of a contradiction in terms) wants them to bring peace to the country to stop persecution of Christians. Go look up the history of Christianity in Japan. Sakaki winds caught between all these people. The actor playing Shuranosuke Sakaki is good. He has to play an extremely calm, almost Vulcan like character. I would like to read the original book or books by Takeshi Namuri."
Very gay but fun non the less

"This is a funny movie! This movie is inspired by this anime that
no one has ever seen Sword For Truth! Sword For Truth was this
Ja-pornime with lots of sex and gruesome ninja and samurai
action! The story was about this Ronin who is hired by a samurai
clan to retrieve the kidnapped princess from some ninjas! But
what was upsetting about that film was it that it never was
completed! The anime finished with some guy makng a prophecy
about some white tiger dead and you never hear about a sequel!
Well for the few of you who ever saw that train wreck of a anime
and was discouraged about the ending, this movie may fill in the
blanks of Sword For Truth! This movie was fun! I was laughing so
hard at the part when this huge black guy (like 800 pounds huge)
comes walking through a Japanese village and terrorizing people!
It was so damn funny! I felt a bit dissapointed that this film
wasn't as gory or sexual like Sword for Truth but still this
film was fun! Nothing special but fun!
The DVD is released by Asian Pulp Cinema! Just to let you know,
these guys release mostly independent, b-movie style films! Like
$500 budget films! As far as I know their DVD's work and aren't
broken! I also got Ninja Dragon and that worked! Alot of their
stuff is either erotic, horror, or action! And picture quality
for Legend of the Devil is tip-top and widescreen!"
