| Best Anime
Well, well, well. So what they say is true. This movie really is the best anime. From the cover, and from just the name itself, the movie didn't really appeal to me. I mean, I liked animes only because of their sci-fi nature, I liked the machine vs. man aspect of anime... and then I saw this movie!!

I've seen other anime, such as Princess Monoke, but no other anime I have seen even closely compares with Ninja Scroll. The story is pure brilliance, the animation is spectacular, and there are elements of superb well-crafted love-plot, action, and any other element a great story needs. If you liked Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, then see this gem of a movie.

I don't want to go into much other detail, other than just reccommend it to people. It's simply the best of anime. I was lucky I saved it!
