Average Rating

It has been 10 years since the war between the Iga and Kouga ninja clans came to an end. The two groups have since made peace, supposedly dispelling the animosity that once existed between them. Hachirou Kouga and Hibiki Iga, the successors of their respective bloodlines, seem to have the perfect conditions for their love to bloom, but not everyone is satisfied with the results of the age-old battle. Different tales of the final showdown between Gennosuke Kouga and Oboro Iga have spread, leaving Tadanaga Tokugawa—whom the Kouga represented—dissatisfied. As tension between the two clans rises once again, the brewing political climate threatens to keep the two fated lovers apart, just as it had in the previous generation.

A lot of missed potential here.Watch the 2005 version, it’s superior in almost every aspect. Skip this, unless you really liked the prequel.

The Animal Cannibal

Honestly a complete disappointment in Story characters and writing compared to the previous basilisk 4 out of 10


Lots of flaws, only the last episode had some good animation. Cant recommend


Absolutely awful. Don’t watch if you’re hoping for any ties to the first, and far superior, season.


I really like the prequel, but this one… I would recommend to skip it, specially if you like the prequel (such an annoying Iga leader)



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
