Great for young adults and older

on 12/12/2012

The end to a great series. I enjoy they way the story gets you a little involved with every character. Some times it's hard to determine who is bad and who is good. You'd like to think that the Koga are good and the Iga are bad, but that doesn't always seem to hold true.

Product Overview

Mounting death drags desperate measure from the hearts of the few who have survived to this, the final hour. A face is finally put to the conspirator of a four century feud.

Political ambition works to shape the end game, and Oboro issues a public challenge, seeking to draw Gennosuke out. As they stand reunited, Oboro begs for death, unable in her love to stand against him. But dying breath sets the final confrontation in motion, and fate comes full circle. Gennosuke, wounded and poisoned, blinded still by the hands of the Iga. Oboro, unskilled in the arts of war and unwilling to prove false her love. Neither with a care as to whom will inherit the title of Shogun.

Contains episodes 21-24: With All Her Heart, The Haunted, Emancipation, and Requiem!

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.
