Set during Japan’s Tokugawa period, Ninja Scroll opens with female ninja Kagero at the mercy of Tessai, a monster of a man who can turn his skin to stone. She is rescued by wandering ronin Jubei Kibagami and together the pair discover that Tessai is one of the Eight Devils of Kimon, a band of super ninja led by Jubei’s old nemesis, who he insists he killed years ago.
Tricked into helping Kagero take down the Eight Devils, expert swordsman Jubei must push his swordsmanship to the limit if he is to defeat them. Pitted against these merciless foes, only one thing is certain; Jubei Kibagami must kill or be killed.
