Honey’s Highlights

So this is a series set 10 years after its original series, Basilisk: Kouga Ninpou Chou. Interesting.

It is starting to seem like a lot of older series are getting reboots or sequels. Sailor Moon, Berserk, etc.

This is also important because it gives people an impression of what Shinobi/ninja were actually like and not like Naruto which is pure fantasy.

That may be. I think we can expect a lot of action and fighting in the new Basilisk. I cannot wait!

Synopsis

The war of ninja arts has begun once more. A battle which took place over three generations of shogun in the Keichou era has led to this gruelling war between Kouga and Iga. Among the scattered flower blossoms, a man and a woman who were trying to live for love are once again parted, fleeting and beautiful.

However, these two blossoms left behind two forgotten mementos which they gave life to - Hachirou Kouga and Hibiki Iga. These two children, who have the same eyes as their father and mother respectively, were born with a certain fate awaiting them.

Now, it’s the peaceful Kan'ei​ era. Ninjas are now seen as useless, and have no choice but to retreat into the shadows. Those from the Kouga and Iga clans look towards Hachirou and Hibiki to make a change using their blood and strength.
