Comment:
The OAV ended in a cliffhanger and was never finished after only two episodes were completed.
ADV Films' decision to release Makai Tensho as Ninja Resurrection caused a wave of confusion among anime fans. Some were led to believe that this was a sequel to Ninja Scroll, as both titles featured a main character named Jubei, while the title logo was given a design similar to that of the latter. Others saw this as just ADV's attempt to capitalize on Ninja Scroll's popularity. While Ninja Resurrection sold well in the U.S., the deceptive marketing gave it one of the worst reputations in American anime fandom.
