BASILISK

POWER STRUGGLES, FORBIDDEN LOVE AND A NINJA SLAUGHTER, BASILISK COMES TO DVD IN NOVEMBER.

MELBOURNE, Thursday, 12 October, 2006 – Reared from birth as sworn enemies, two lovers from rival ninja clans stand with hands entwined. As they seek to break the shackles of darkness and heal the wounds of the past, fate denies their quest and thrusts them into war.

Four hundred years have passed, four centuries of enforced peace which have failed to soften the hatred between the Kouga and Iga clans. Misfortune written in the heavens, one cruel day breaks the treaty binding these fearsome foes. Pitted one against the other in a deadly fight for Shogun, the terms have been set. Two lists seal their destinies, two lists from which a name can only be crossed out in blood. No mercy will be spared to the enemy.

From Studio Gonzo (Samurai 7) and creator Futaro Yamada (Shinobi, Ninja Resurrection), Basilisk is based on the 1958 novel “The Kouga Ninja Scrolls” and is the anime interpretation of the live-action phenomenon, Shinobi.

Ninja fans won't want to miss this action-packed series – also available to buy with a limited edition collector's box to store all upcoming volumes of Basilisk.
