yeah, the movie kicked ass
the series on the other hand, meh...
I've got the Ninja Scroll TV series and I've seen all the episodes
and all I have to say is "blah"
it's nice sometimes, but it suffers from many flaws
first, repetition and predictability
second, characters you can't really feel for (unlike characters like Spike from Cowboy Bebop and Kiba from Wolf's Rain)
and there's a whole lot of things wrong with the anime series
I did find it funny about how short the average life span of a villain in Ninja Scroll
you meet a brand new bad guy and you think he'll be a major part of the story and plot and you're in awe at the coolness
but then all of a sudden, he or she dies in the same episode that [s]he is introduced in
I found that to be quite humorous
the music was pretty, but sometimes dull
the ending wasn't that great
am I being too harsh?
...nonetheless, it was an okay series
doesn't really live up to the OVA, but oh well... it's all good
