This was a bonus tape in a small lot I recently won on eBay. Surprisingly, a nice big box copy of the A.N.E. Home Video release. I've never seen this before, but after witnessing the following clip it's become high priority viewing.
The story follows a young Ninja on a quest to save a woman who's been kidnapped by an evil sorcerer with the intention of marrying her to become the rule of the universe, as prophesied. Needless to say, I'm in. Sonny Chiba also co-stars in this film, and is also responsible for the fight choreography. Strangely, the box neglects to mention him.
