NINJA SCROLL
JÛBÊ NINPÛCHÔ
1993, Sentai Filmworks, 94 min, Japan, Dir: Yoshiaki Kawajiri

In feudal Japan, mercenary swordsman Jubei saves a young ninja woman from the unthinkable; together, the two investigate the mysterious deaths of an entire village, uncovering a conspiracy of demonic proportions. As they get closer to the truth, the supernatural forces will stop at nothing to silence Jubei and his companion for good. Packed with action and eye-popping visuals, NINJA SCROLL remains an anime landmark.

Based on the Hideyuki Kikuchi novel, this stylish anime favorite takes place in the year 12,090 A.D., when technology and the supernatural have overtaken the world, leaving the land desolate and despotic. The remnants of humanity are scattered into small communities, and live in fear of vampires who compose the ruling nobility. When Count Magnus Lee tastes the blood of Doris Lang, she is forcibly chosen to be his next wife. In an effort to escape her ill-gotten fate she hires a mysterious vampire hunter known only as D, who comes from a peculiar lineage.
