Editorial Reviews

Orginally made in 1987, Yotoden boasts a strong budget of detailed and fluid animation with a complex and thought provoking story which doesn't lack action either.

For the first time ever on dvd we get the complete version of 'Yotoden: Chronicle of the Warlord Period' which originally only made it on to VHS.

Orginally made in 1987, Yotoden boasts a strong budget of detailed and fluid animation with a complex and thought provoking story but it doesn't lack action either. It's set in 1580 and embarks on a very accurate historical timeline.

I must say i really love the character designs and diverse colour palletes used. There is some absolutly stunning scenes which just sparkle on screen visually. I literally freeze frame on some occasions to take in all the detail in the forest scenery. It really does make me miss the era of cel animation.

Alot of fans may be familiar of this title through the name 'Wrath of the Ninja' which is the 90 minute theoretical version of Yotoden which was originally released on dvd in 1999. Unfortunately this had 45 minutes of plot cut out of it.

Why Central Park Media in 1999 originally chose to release the edited version over the uncut version is beyond me. But all is forgiven and forgotten now we have all 3 episodes which amount to the complete 135 minutes.

Those videophiles will be pleased to know CPM have given fans a brand new and digitally remastered transfer which is crystal clear with no visible signs of artefacts or grain. I only wish CPM had put this much effort into their other releases.

CONCLUSION - Fans owe it to themselves to see the original Yotoden in all it's unedited glory. This title certainly has impressive writing. Infact i was so suprised by the quality of the story that i didn't realise that i could enjoy and be so engaged in a story revolving around a group of Ninjas.

When I saw the Yotoden series, subtitled, I was thrilled to find a Yotoden movie. Sadly, Wrath of the Ninja is only a rehash of the three volume series. This tape basicly takes the three earlier yotoden videos and cuts them into one. Now I am not saying that this type of idea is bad. Armatige III Polymatrix does this very well. Unfortunetly to get the three tapes into one numerous sceens are cut. Worse yet the deleted sceens are helpfull in understanding the plot. Oh but thats not all. The dubbing on this tape is some of the worst I have ever heard. The original japanese voice talent not only sounds better, but actualy seem like they have acting ability. I don't realy have anything good to say about Wrath of the Ninja. I only give it 2 stars because it shares most of the Yotoden plot. My advise is to see the three subtitled Yotoden tapes. They are excellent, and among my personal favorites. If you have seen them don't even look at the Wrath box. If you don't have the time to see the 3 tapes, then don't bother at all. I would rather you not see Yotoden than see this.

At the start of this movie, it seemed rather interesting. But the the movie rambled on from subject to subject, time period to time period, and the plot twist toward the end was so inaudible, that only a computer could understand it completely. I never know the intentions of any of the three shadow warriors, and it is impossible to keep track of the seven obero ninjas (unlike the 8 devils of Kimon in "Ninja Scroll") and the love between Sakon and Ayama was not very beleivable. This movie needed a better introduction, and more time to straigten out the plot. 189 minutes would be more suitable than a meager 89 minutes. Throw in irritating cheesy fight music, fights in which you don't know who is who, and plot twists involving characters who were never really in the movie that much in the first place, and you have one dissapointing movie that could have ranked among great Ninja movies like "Ninja Scroll," or "The Dagger of Kamui."

Format: DVD
"Wrath of the Ninja" is an unforgettable anime with well-drawn animation, creepy monsters, exciting fight scenes and a terrific music score...but what is with this crazy disc? I've tried two copies and I've had the exact same problems with both. My old Toshiba SD-2109 gives me a "DISC ERROR" message and refuses to play the movie at all. My brand new Panasonic DVD-S47 plays the movie up to Chapter 4, then starts pixelating all over the place. On my computer the disc plays flawlessly. So is this disc goofy, or are my players goofy? Am I the ONLY person who's had trouble with this disc? It seems that way, judging by all the other reviews here. 5 stars for the movie; but only 1 star for the disc. ...Oh well, at least I can watch it on my computer screen...

PLEASE NOTE: This review refers to the 2003 single-disc edition with the blue cover. The new "Complete Yotoden Saga" release has a red cover with "NINJA" printed in big yellow letters and includes 2 discs (the movie version AND the unedited OVA version), both of which work fine for me.

I am most dissappointed with this one. The truth is,..I've seen prievews from this movie that weren't in the movie,..then discovered the series was sold in three seperate videos as well. The story is horrible,..and I've discovered that all it is is the three videos gutted out and put into one. The fight scenes are awful,..man versus monster,..and this is just a horrible movie..
