First of all, stated on the cover art work, is a claim that this is "The best sword fighting action since Ninja Scroll." I would like to point out that pretty much all the "sword fighting" consists of is: sword being drawn, charging towards the opponent, gushing blood & body parts of opponent falling away (or vice versa- body part falling, then blood gush). Lame.
Not failing to mention that this is NOTHING like Ninja Scroll at all. In fact, I think the creators of Ninja Scroll should sue the creator of this for even mentioning Ninja Scroll. It was shameless attempt to trick fans of Ninja Scroll into buying this.
Well, anyway, onto the actual story itself.
**Spoiler alert** (If you can call it that. I don't think you can spoil something that's already rotten.)
The "movie" starts out with a giant white tiger attacking a group of soldiers. The soldiers are pretty bad at their job too, because despite having guns & cannons, they can't manage to hit the thing even once. So they end up being killed. The guys with the swords & spears fare no better. Out of no where appears our "hero" & effortlessly cuts down the tiger. He walks on, the thanks of the surviving soldiers & requests for his name ignored.
Cut to our "hero" walking through town & being targeted by a lady pick-pocket.Read more ›
Warning: If you could not follow Pulp Fiction, then you will probably not be able to follow this movie. Also, this movie was the first part of a series that was never finished...
Again, if you are a true fan of anime, get this movie.

This anime has been trashed for being a rip of Ninja Scroll. It shouldn't be. Ninja Scroll had two hours to work out its plot. SFT had one hour. Read more
I'm sick of people comparing this with Ninja Scroll. One, this was an episode of an OVA series that was never finished,that's why there was no ending. Read morePublished on October 20, 2007 by Gataiga
