Basilisk show combines a "Romeo and Juliet"-type love plot with Naruto-style ninja action, & throws in some of the most violent death scenes ever seen in a Japanese anime so far. If you are into any or all of the above, u can't miss out on Basilisk show.

YESNO

Product Overview

As this bitter war draws to a close, those that seek to see it through dwindle in number. The cost of hatred weighs heavily on the remnants of both tribes.

Confrontations in the night reveals Gennosuke's true intentions, as the hand of reconciliation is extended to the enemy. But death litters the road traveled by ninja feet. Impatience goads political intrigue to seek a more active role in this annihilation of two tribes, and the unseen finally comes to light as those that remain learn of the wager which unleashed this war upon them. But too much has been lost for either side to turn back. No mercy will be spared to the enemy.

Contains episodes 17-20: Wandering Hearts, A Dawn Without Light, Conspiracy, and River of Mercy!

ReviewSource Toon Zone
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.
