If only Naruto was this interesting. This is how you do ninjas with bloodlines not uberhax get a new power every chapter sharingans.
Basilisk is about as interesting as a snuff film. Afterwards you're left with the feeling of "Well what was the fucking point of all that, then?"
I wish it didn't kill the really interesting (and hot) characters so fucking frequently tho...
What, the fighting? That Oboro and Gennosuke got the shit card in fate?
Meh, it's basically Romeo and Juliet with ninjas. I enjoyed it for what it was and I BAWWWed in the end.
The point I suppose was that the war was pointless and would eventually destroy both groups which is what it in fact did.
Had My-Hime had the same testicular fortitude as Basilisk it would be a superior anime.
I hear the anime is superior to the manga, that true?
Yes. Action and music are good in Basilisk. The manga is kinda unimpressive looking.
>>The point I suppose was that the war was pointless and would eventually destroy both groups which is what it in fact did.
It only destroyed Gennosuke's clan basically. But it showed how insignicant the ninjas were in the grand scheme of things that they were used for pawns to decide the next Shogun.
... Well, in a way, it did prevent any chance of a war between the Shogun's sons.
I read the manga and liked it but if you want to actually feel for the characters the animes the way to go as it's crammed full of flashbacks and characterisation absent in the manga.
Only reason I read manga is because watching a work is a lot slower than reading it and I'm not exactly loaded with free time
I agree, the photo background and that annoying glowing shimmer around the characters were annoying...
awesome OP theme
awesome ED theme
Oboro's clan lost it's most powerful members as well but I suppose they got the benefit's of winning the battle(I forget what they were it might have been something akin to being the favoured ninja clan or something) due to Gennosuke's sacrifice. Both clans still had other members who could rebuild them.
Ultra awesome brick-shitting battles?
