Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Directed by Shimoyama Ten, the dazzling "SHINOBI: HEART UNDER BLADE" centers on the drama resulting from the rivalry between two ninja clans in feudal Japan. While living deep within the mountains, the two clans have honed their skills to superhuman levels, but are restrained by imperial decree from battling each other. Four centuries of simmering tensions threaten to boil over when the Shogun requests the clans appear before him. Fearing that rebels may use the ninjas as instruments of insurrection, the nefarious Nankobo Tenkai (Ishibashi Renji) plots to ignite the rivalry. Nankobo creates a contest in which the clans are forced to choose five of their best warriors to participate. Leading the two clans are Oboro (Nakama Yukie), the granddaughter of the respected Iga clan matriarch, and Gennosuke (Odagiri Jo), the son of the powerful Koga clan leader. Early in the film, Oboro and Gennosuke meet and fall in love, unaware of their clan ties. When they are both selected to compete they are surprised to discover the truth about one another's identities. The saga that follows explores an improbable love, intertwined with a breathtaking, fearsome match between ninja heavyweights. The long-awaited battle is hardly a friendly contest - it's a duel to the death!
Animation rules the nation
We all love anime, brave warriors, love stories and good drama!
This is a lovely story about two people, coming from very different backgrounds, who are willing to sacrifice everything in order to protect both their love AND the clans they come from.
Unfortunately something goes incredibly wrong on their journey to bring peace to their home-land and they are forced to overcome war, hatred and endure a lot of pain.
Love is their ultimate motivation - love for the chosen one, for the family, love for the land, for friends, not to mention the love of freedom, peace, honesty!
And on top of this great story, there is good anime-style action, music and very good actors!
