Sword for Truth is a 1990 OVA about a swordsman named Shuranosuke Sakaki, who aids the Nakura clan by saving Princess Mayu from the Seki ninja.

It has nothing to do with Sword of Truth.

Tropes found in this anime:

  • Amazon Brigade: The kunoichi in red ninja clothes.
  • Escaped Animal Rampage: The show begins with a giant tiger escaping from its cage and slaughtering a large number of the Shogun's men before being cut down in one stroke by protagonist Shuranosuke Sakaki.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Shuranosuke. This guy kills a tiger with one blow in his introduction scene.

  • Made of Iron: The Leader of the Seki ninja is this trope.
  • Master Swordsman: Shuranosuke.
  • MacGuffin: The Izayoi sword.
