There are some minor drawbacks, like characters that could be more fleshed out and the uneven animation quality — however, the movie succeeds in telling the story it wants to tell and uses very creative visual effects for telling a mature story. Jubei Ninpucho is cleverly structured and although it is not an inherently complex narrative, it features a very thoughtful approach for presenting vital background information. But is the English dub any good? To make matters worse, a government spy poisons Jubei, promising him an antidote if he can unravel the true intentions of the Devils of Kimon and their connection to the plague. And with two demon clans now hunting down Shigure, Dakuan must once again acquire the services of Jubei to protect the Priestess of Light. Unfortunately, both past and political intrigue collide when he meets and saves a female ninja named Kagero from a man with the ability to make his body as hard as stone.
But when a group of demons destroys the village and kills everyone, Jubei becomes a prime target after acquiring the Dragon Jewel - a stone with an unknown origin. During his journey, he meets Shigure, a priestess who has never seen the world outside her village. The trail leads to shadow leaders, a plot to overthrow the government, and a man that Jubei thought he would never see again. Most normies, in my experience, don't really care for reading subtitles through a whole movie. If you're watching it alone, either way is fine, but you said you're a purist, so in your case, obviously you should go with subtitles.

But when a group of demons destroys the village and kills everyone, Jubei becomes a prime target after acquiring the Dragon Jewel—a stone with an unknown origin. After a past betrayal left him masterless, he has no more patience for warring political factions and their schemes.
To be perfectly honest, if you're watching it with a friend, you should probably watch dubbed. Haven't seen the film before, but I'm a big fan of Yoshiaki Kawajiri from Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, so I really wanna give it a try. Meanwhile, Shigure - along with the monk Dakuan and a young thief named Tsubute - travels to the village of Yagyu. . Ninja Scroll: The Series Sub Fourteen years after defeating the immortal warrior Himuro Genma and thwarting the Shogun of the Dark's evil plans, Kibagami Jubei continues to roam all over Japan as a masterless swordsman. During his journey, he meets Shigure, a priestess who has never seen the world outside her village. I'm usually a purist when it comes to anime, so I usually watch anime in Japanese with English subs, but I plan on watching this film with a friend, so if the English dub is any good we're gonna watch that instead of the Japanese.
