Genryu's Blade was first posted on Newgrounds back in 2000. This is the remastered version, back on Newgrounds where it first started.

Story: Genryu's Shino, an assassin who decided to retire and lead a normal life has one small problem; the Yakuza see his actions as an act of betrayal and now wants him dead. The Yakuza Boss places a 100 million dollar bounty on his head and his mysterious dragon blade. Now Genryu's must once again kill but not for money, survival.

Once an Assassin, Always an Assassin.

A classic! If you didn't get to watch this one on flash, too bad for you. It used to look a lot better.

Dude... I was 16, when I saw this. You still owe us Shockamine, goddammit. What I appreciated was the direction, choreography, and to some extent, the writing. Dude, I HOPE you become a director, because you show GREAT restraint and awesome attention to detail. And your camerawork is beautiful... I mean, SHIT, the “He’s Mine” part was such a smart fucking choice. It FELT like anime. A thousand kudos to you, and PLEASE make a follow. I’ve been waiting, lol.

Nicely done.. I remember this from back in the day, wasn't sure i'd find it again!

My grod, this animation is more awesome than even some anime sword fights!

a classic animation. I loved this as a preteen and I am very overjoyed that I was FINALLY able to watch this on newgrounds! Whenever I tried to find this when I was younger, I couldn't find it on newgrounds because it was blamed for some odd reason and I was forced to watch it on other sites. Literally logged into my account that I haven't accessed in years to review this. *claps*
