I like Naruto but they are more shinobi.

Just watched a Japanese film called Azumi the other day, superb. She's a female assassin and is part of a gang killing the bad warlords of feudal Japan. However one of the warlords has ninja protection.

There is a scene of her fighting ninjas with some very very good camera work. This the Matrix on steroids.

any one seen bleach (anime). Its like a weird heavens, demons, ninja, samurai, hip hop, spirts and ghosts, sorta mess. Any hows being a naruto fan.
And i dont exactly read up on ninjas. But being hired to kill some one is bad and unmoral in our culture. Probably if u were more specific i would have a better input. But im just going to say misunderstood. Since they grew up being trained to do this, just like how lions kill to eat. I guess so do ninjas.

I watched the first 10 anime of Bleach but didn't like it, the story was ok but I didn't like the artwork on the hollows.

Into Naruto, not quite ninja's but close enough.

I liked it, can't wait for Azumi 2 to be released.

If you liked Kill Bill/Hero you will like it. It's very Japanese but the swordplay and story are almost perfect.

It's worth getting on hire for ?2/3
