An awesome series

on 12/12/2012

This is seriously one of the best anime series out. I was drawn in immediately. The ruthlessness of the characters on each side will astound you. You will be torn between which family that you are supposed to root for. The genius of this is that the series does a good job of Not favoring either side throughout each episode. Just when you feel comfortable to pick a side you are immediately thrown a curve ball. Read More

Product Overview

The passions of the past quickly reignite as one scroll seeks to undo two powerful tribes. Death is on the wind, and the storm continues unabated.

The Iga set our to rewrite the rules of deceit, made possible by deepest affection, as Gennosuke and Oboro stand facing one another across a river of animosity. But as reason is lost to hatred, ambition tips the hand of the treacherous. Konga warriors in disguise delve deep within the enemy stronghold to unearth the truth, revealing both innocence taken and innocence lost. At the darkness pervading the sky seeps into the souls of men, blood lingers in the rain and the flood is unleashed. No mercy will be spared to the enemy.

Contains episodes 5-8: The Surprise Attack, Longing in the Rain, The Bloodsucking Seductress, and Cage of Blood!

Review The samurai genre is so robust in anime that one wonders why there isn't a similar demand for animated westerns in the U.S....After all cell phones and kimonos is a far more common combo than iPods and ten-gallon hats. Or maybe American writers haven't quite yet developed the knack for blending gunslinging with grotesque creatures, a wide variety of which populate the supernatural ninja series Basilisk...It certainly comes as a jolt when watching what seems like a painstakingly accurate period drama to be suddenly confronted with a shape-shifting monster. Personally I'd rather just have the historical swordplay, but I guess the Japanese have a strong affinity for the creepy...Fans of samurai, high body counts, and things that go bump in the night will get a kick out of Basilisk, though it's nothing particularly memorable. I can even see it appealing to the InuYasha crowd, provided they can stomach the bloodshed and general lack of cuteness. Although it's got nothing for the high school uniform demographic.
