** Jubei himself is arguably more heroic and , as in the film he was more of a WildCard and only got involved in the Kimon plot because he had been blackmailed by Dakuan.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Both the Kimon and Hiruko clans are gone for good, while Shigure and her friends are alive and with the chance to start a new live. However, they believe Jubei to be dead, as he is following his journey without telling them (for whatever reason).]]

* FullFrontalAssault: Downplayed with Ubume and Azami. The former wears some kind of plate mail in her crotch and belly and covers her breats with GodivaHair, while the latter's genitalia and nipples are covered by a wood-like substance.



* GivingThemTheStrip: Both Ubume and Azami are forced to fight in the nude after losing her clothes.

Thirteen episode anime series that can be considered either a SpiritualSuccessor or a direct sequel to the ''Anime/NinjaScroll'' movie. It revolves around Jubei needing to transport a mystical artifact called the Dragon Stone to a "Priestess of Light", and then to protect both of them from the machinations of the Hiruko Clan and the Kimon Shu. Dakuan re-emerges as one of Jubei's allies, and each episode features no fewer than three ninjas (from one or both rival ninja clans) with a wide variety of bizarre superpowers that match the wide variety of powers displayed by the Eight Devils of Kimon in the original movie (which Jubei tends to cut down rather handily, when they aren't busy killing each other). From a pure action standpoint it's generally a worthy sequel to the original movie, though there's not quite as much character development, and its tone shifts from historical fantasy to a more [[DungeonPunk futuristic]] feel.

feel. Also, it leans on Futaro Yamada's ''The Kouga Ninja Scrolls'' even more than the movie.



* {{Determinator}}: Jubei. Without a doubt.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Pretty much most of the shinobi from both clans; some of them for practical reasons given their weird bodies, and others just because.

Also, Yayoi is case of BarefootPoverty.



* {{Expy}}[=/=]ShoutOut: Several characters are very similar to some from ''The Kouga Ninja Scrolls'', if not in looks and role, in abilities.
** Mozuku is one to Shougen Kazamachi.
** Rokai is an overall one (if significantly less competent) to Jousuke Udono.
** Ubume and her son to Tenzen Yakushiji and his brother.
** Kitsunebi to Hotarubi in their skill controlling butterflies.
** Tobizaru to Nenki Mino.



* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Rengoku backstabs Nubatama through her [[BreastAttack left breast]]. Nubatama survives this only to later get impaled by several blades [[NoKillLikeOverkill through her entire chest]] until she's [[HighPressureBlood completely drained of blood]].

to:

* GivingThemTheStrip: Both Ubume and Azami are forced to fight in the nude after losing her clothes.
* GodivaHair: Ubume's nipples are covered only by her hair after she ditches her clothes.
* HighlyVisibleNinja: Most of the cast are shinobi only in name, as they have usually zero ninja attributes aside from supernatural skills. You could switch the word "ninja" for "wizard" in the dialogues and you wouldn't note the difference.

development, and its tone shifts from historical fantasy to a more [[DungeonPunk futuristic]] feel.


Added DiffLines:

* GenreShift: The movie had a dark, gritty historical fantasy setting in which supernatural elements were very rare and wicked. The series, on the other hand, is set a lighter and more adventurous world (even visually colored with much lighter tones) where everybody is superhuman and all sorts of futuristic technologies exist.

* BroadStrokes: The series is indecisive about his status as a sequel to the film or a completely new continuity. On one hand, Jubei vaguely seems to remember Dakuan and to know the Kimon guys, and his hat has [[ContinuityNod a cut in it]] just as he received it in the film. On the other hand, the events on the film are never ever mentioned, even whenever it would be weird not to; Jubei still uses plain string to tie his katana scabbard instead of the [[TragicKeepsake headband Kagero gave him]]; and, finally, there is the detail that in the original film there was ''no Kimon clan'', but simply eight ninja who called themselves the Eight Demons of Kimon.

* EscortMission: Jubei's primary job in this series is protecting Shugure on their journey.
* EyeRemember: Jyashi can take eyes out of corpses and insert them into a device on his eye socket to watch the deceased's last moments and learn from their failure. He can then trap his enemies inside an illusory world and set the memories he has collected to attack them.

Added DiffLines:

* RedshirtArmy: The AntiVillain Hiruko clan. While not extremely weaker in comparison, they are typically less capable than their Kimon counterparts and tend to go down in every encounter between the two clans.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: Conversely to Jubei, who gains superpowers in this series as opposite to the movie, Dakuan seems to be here a common old man, without any of the ninjutsu powers he showed in the film like his RubberMan and ChameleonCamouflage abilities.
