I've been reading some of the reviews you guys have been making on "The best Anime Movies Ever!", and everyone includes Ninja Scroll, so I bought it off of Ebay. It has been hyped here as action packed, and hyper violent and so forth, so i decided that was right up my alley! It came in yesterday, so i invited some friends over and told them how it was supposed to be awesome and hyperviolent and everything. There were a couple good parts at the beginning, like the stone guy who threw that sword-boomerang, and when he ripped that guys arms off......but then it became heavily soaked in talking and plot-building, and all my friends fell asleep while I sat there wondering why this movie was on some of your "Best Anime Ever" lists. Maybe I'm just so used to seeing gross shit online all the time that this movie did not strike me as violent or anything.
