Product Description

Jiyu Nanohana is a teenage girl who unwillingly inherits the name and the skills of Yagyu Jubei, a legendary Japanese swordsman who lived in Japan over 300 years ago. When she puts on the so-called "Lovely Eye Patch," she turns into mighty Jubei-Chan, drawing her sword to fend off assassins who want to defeat the Legendary Yagyu Jubei more than anything else.

Amazon.com

The 2004 broadcast series Jubei Chan 2: Resurrection picks up shortly after Jubei-Chan the Ninja Girl (1999) ended. When perky junior high student Jiyu "Jubei" Nanohana ended an ancient vendetta, she thought she'd finished with the "lovely eyepatch" that transformed her into the reincarnation of legendary samurai Yagyu Jubei. But the Rettsai Kita clan, who were defeated and exiled to Siberia by the original Jubei 300 years ago, also have a score to settle. Global warming thaws Freesia, Rettsai's frozen daughter: she comes to Japan seeking revenge. So does the rest of the Kita clan under the addled leadership of samurai Furo Kita. Freesia transforms into Yagyu's reincarnation when she dons a spade-shaped eye patch; the runny-nosed child of Koinusuke brings the heart-shaped eye patch back to Jiyu, who also tranforms.

The three-way sword fights are complicated by the presence of kendo champion Shiro, Mikage the ninja, Jiyu's writer-father, and "unrefined" Bantaro, all of whom remember "the first series." The visual style varies from broad cartoon action to photographs to computer graphics to live action. Resurrection is entertaining, but it doesn't make much sense.

This review wants to compare vs first series

A lot of reviewers for this set said that this series was more serious than first one & comedic moments felt out of place. This may be if one rushed through the series as I did. However, at the second viewing, I found the comedic moments wonderful especially if your cup of tea is japanese anime comedy style.

But the most wonderful thing about this series is the level of detail & work in the animation. Certainly the extra detail was the result of more money to spend vs the 1999 introduction & it was helped by the improvements in action sequences after MATRIX in 1999 as the action is more HK style cool. A lot of reviewers said the action in first series was very good.

That may be in 1999 but it looks very generic & very short to be considered good. This they improved on.

In terms of story, there is more improvement & more dramatic impact. I felt the first one was very redundant in Jubei-chan refusing the Yagyu Jubei persona & mantle but here it was more subtle.

I would say this is the series you want to get if you have to choose ONE. If you enjoyed it, it would not ruin your enjoyment of the first one.

Like any sequel, Jubei-Chan 2 has both the opportunity of continuing the success of its predecessor and also suffers the inevetable comparisons with it. Unlike some reviewers here, I feel if you haven't seen Jubei-Chan, The Ninja Girl - Secret of the Lovely Eyepatch this second series won't make any sense and will only cause confusion due to its highly unusual mix of serious action and slapstick buffoonery. The set of four episodes included on this disc picks up almost exactly where the first series left off with little attempt at explaination of the setup or introduction for any but the characters new to this particular tale. Though several years passed between the first series and this, most character design and backgrounds remain faithful to the original, with improvements in the fluidity of the action scenes. Only the design of Jubei-Chan herself bothers me a bit; for some reason, her original Japanese voice actress has also been replaced by Yui Horie, probably best known here as the voice of Naru Narusegawa in Love Hina. ( As usual, I ignore the dub cast. )

In case you're really unfamilliar with Jubei-Chan, let me say right off that there are NO ninjas among the main characters who are best described as "swordsmen/swordswomen" or samuari. Any ninjas, such as there are, serve mainly as a sort of background comic relief. ( The original subtitle "The Ninja Girl" seems to exist only in the English version and to have been used for its "catchy-ness". ) Schoolgirl Jiyu Nanohana is the VERY reluctant reincarnation of legendary swordsman Yagyu Jubei. Unfortunately for her, Jubei created veritable legions of enemies and rival swordsmen while he lived, and now some 300 years later they're still looking to get even.

Format: DVD
Given that it's a sequel, I had my suspicions about Jubei-chan 2--the first series is one of my all-time favorites. This is not. Even if it did not have to measure up to the original, it would struggle to be mediocre. As it is, with its awful changes to much of the returning cast, Jubei-chan 2 borders on unwatchable.

The story is not the problem: Jiyu is confronted by yet another group clinging to a 300 year old grudge (this group is a side branch of the Yagyu who were exiled) and by a girl with her own eyepatch (a spade to match Jiyu's heart-shaped eyepatch) who claims to be the real Yagyu Jubei II. In other words, no great literary feat, but not unexpected for a sequel.

The problem lies in the butchering of the returning cast. Shiro, the heart of the original series, with his sword skill and his earnest feelings for Jiyu, becomes nothing but a useless buffoon. Bantaro suffers a similar fate, being reduced to merely stupid, without any real humor. It feels like this series was written by a group of people who didn't like or didn't care about the characters in the original. Oddly, the writers seem to acknowledge this--several times, characters point out that things seem to have really changed since the original series. They're right, and none have changed for the better.

If you liked the original series, I can't recommend this at all. It will only disappoint. If you didn't, this show is worse in every conceivable way, so it's hard to imagine you would like it better. The original Jubei-chan, while enormously silly, had both heart and a spark of magic; this is just a grind of stupidity highlighted by one or two laughs an episode.

Like it's first series, Jubei-Chan 2 has the same feel. Short, fast fight sequences with a little too much stupid, kiddy comedy. Those looking for more sword play should look else where, but those who like more comedy with a little sword play here and their, this is a good one.
