Anime Description: Ninja Scroll

Feudal Japan - a time of danger, intrigue and deception. Jubei is a masterless ninja who travels the land alone, hiring his services to those with gold... or a worthy cause. His fearsome abilities have served him well, but a hideous plot to overthrow the government threatens to end his wandering ways - and possibly his life.

When a small village succumbs to a terrible plague, a team of ninjas are sent to investigate, and realize that all is not as it seems. Ambushed, they are wiped out by a fearsome man-monster with incredible powers, leaving only one alive - Kagero, a beautiful female ninja whose touch can bring instant death.

Jubei saves her from a fate worse than death, and unwittingly becomes drawn into the web of treachery. He is soon faced with his greatest challenge - an enemy for whom death holds no fear, with the power to destroy Jubei's world. It's an all-out bloodbath when ninja warriors come face-to-face in this action-packed tribal war.
