    A ninja version of Battle Royale
    Combine the story of Romeo and Juliet, the book Battle Royale, the anime Naruto and you get Basilisk. Two rivaling ninja clans fight each other to determine who will be the next leader of Japan.

    The story is nothing particularly unique, but it's the characters and visuals that really make this a top notch anime. Each character is unique both in personality and abilities and you end up rooting ...

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!
    By far one of my top 5 action anime. The story is a mega Shakespearian tragedy and it is really well done. The animation is on point, the characters are unique and super awesome. Normally I can't rewatch anything without getting super bored. This was the first anime I was able to rewatch and the first two times were binged over two days.

  • Review of Steinert Anime Club
    Club watched the first episode of the series. Club ratings are 1-5 stars.

    Member 1 - Rated 4 out of 5 stars.
    Member 2 - Rated 4 out of 5 stars.
    Member 3 - Rated 5 out of 5 stars.

    Overall rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars. Club chose to move on to the next series on list rather than watch the second episode.

  • An Old School GEM with great balance
    I watched this show years ago and I still believe it is so good. What I really like about it is the way things are depicted and besides the great animation at the time I really enjoy the crudeness of the story and how it is shown without remorse (sex & gore). I believe each of the characters is well designed and is unique.

  • A true anime classic of the ninja and samurai genre.
    Basilisk is an emotional rollercoaster with intense battles and horror elements. The soundtrack is beautiful, and makes the scenes very impactful. When it comes to the Japanese voice acting, this is the most impressive I've heard in an anime. The voice acting fits the characters perfect, and will leave an imprint for all viewers. This anime is awesome!

    My Ninja Wife Cant Be This Dumb!
    It's a great action anime, I'm saying as someone who doesn't like action animes, for the first half. Essentially generic archetypes duke it out in a pretty cool setting. Then it gets stupid, for reasons I in my current mindset cannot discuss outside of spoilers.

  • Very Beautiful and worth the watch!
    This is definitely an anime you need tough skin to watch, but even if you're an emotional type like myself, it's worth the watch! It's beautiful, great story, but full of feels! One of the first anime I've ever owned and one that helped get me into anime.

    This is what made anime, anime
    True classic ninja anime..... Its a love story.... it even has a Live Action Movie....

    Plot is decent. Its dark. Its feudal. Its Brutal.

    Basilisk is definitely in my top 50. Some times dark short touching series just stick with you.

    I hope you give it a try. You should find this one worth your time.

    BTW it is rather adult themed.

    You Will Love it or Hate it
    This is an anime that has amazing characters, great animation, and a decent premise. you will learn to love or hate the various characters.
    It is set in Feudal Japan, with a spoiled leader who wants to be entertained. 2 clans that have been enemies are finally being handed a chance at peace... until this spoiled leader comes along.
