Ninja Scrolls: The Series

Source taken from

Ninja Scroll (Jūbei Ninpūchō?) is a Japanese action thriller anime set in feudal Japan, by critically acclaimed director/writer Yoshiaki Kawajiri who was best known for his previous thriller Wicked City (Yōjū Toshi).

The character designs were done by Yutaka Minowa. The movie is a homage to the Ninpōchō series, ninja novels by Futaro Yamada. The main character, Kibagami Jubei, is an homage to the famed Japanese samurai folk hero Yagyū Jūbei Mitsuyoshi.

Fourteen years after defeating the immortal warrior Himuro Genma and thwarting the Shogun of the Dark's evil plans, Kibagami Jubei continues to roam all over Japan as a masterless swordsman. During his journey, he meets Shigure, a priestess who has never seen the world outside her village. But when a group of demons destroys the village and kills everyone, Jubei becomes a prime target after acquiring the Dragon Jewel - a stone with an unknown origin.
Meanwhile, Shigure - along with the monk Dakuan and a young thief named Tsubute - travels to the village of Yagyu. And with two demon clans now hunting down Shigure, Dakuan must once again acquire the services of Jubei to protect the Priestess of Light.
