Plot of Basilisk (Brief Version)

The Iga clan and the Kouga clan have been sworn enemies for more than four hundred years. Only the Hanzo Hattori truce has kept the two families from all-out war. Now, under the order of Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, the truce has finally been dissolved. Ten ninja from each clan must fight to the death in order to determine who will be the next Tokugawa Shogun and thus rule for the next thousand years. But not all the clan members are in agreement. Oboro of the Iga clan and Gennosuke of the Kouga clan have fallen deeply in love; now these star-crossed lovers have been pitted against each other. Can their romance conquer a centuries-old rivalry, or is their love destined to end in death?

NOTE: I am no longer able to spend the amount of time necessary to document every anime series that I like to the extent that I wrote about this show (Basilisk). The main reason for this is, I would just be repeating information that is already presented wonderfully on other websites, such as Wikipedia and numerous anime websites.

Now that I am watching anime fairly often again, i will probably be adding some personal comments and musings about my favorite anime shows and what I thought about them. A blog would probably be a better format for this, but alas, it is a standard website now and a standard website it shall remain for the time being.
