This was fantastic!

The story was simple, but decent (I like the twist at the end), and the visual quality is amazing. It's some of the best animation I've seen in Newgrounds. Well done!

Great Art Work. I loved it as being in Japan and understanding the time period. I found it quite interesting.

Wow, that was pretty incredible. Loved the animation, the artwork was detailed, the music fit perfectly. The text at the start had a bunch of grammar issues in it though.
This boils down to a pretty simple fight between a samurai and a ninja, but the tone of it makes it stand out and avoids being cliched.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Awesome Work...
