In feudal Japan, Jubei Kipagami is a wandering ninja who is drawn into mystery and adventure when he meets a Kagero, a female ninja whose skin is lethal to the touch. Jubei rescues Kagero from a creature made of rock who proves to be one of the Eight Devils of Kimon – and the Eight Devils are plotting to overthrow the shogun. This legendary adult anime features fast-paced action, complex plotting, graphic violence and dazzling fight scenes, as well as fantasy, magic, and a tale of impossible love.
