Product Overview

Again, equal in number, both the Kouga and the Iga harbor sorrow and despair. But the rage of a few may shape the fate of many.

The clans follow separate paths to Sunpu Castle, as Gennosuke seeks the solution to the riddle, this costly ninja war. But treachery and death follow hard at their heels, as those blinded by hatred long harbored seeks to shorten their lists. Oboro, convinced death shall be delivered by love's own hands, has become a prisoner within her own clan. The past weighs far too heavy on the present, and the path to carnage is one that cannot be escaped, once begun. No mercy will be spared to the enemy.

Contains episodes 13-16: A Swarm of Butterflies, Fallen Flower, Reckoning, and First Impressions!

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.
