On TV in Japan in April, US home video in the fall. Episodes 12 and 13 currently being scripted.

From Urban Vision: "Ninja Scroll: The TV Series is on the way! Spanning 13 episodes and written by Yoshiaki Kawajiri, the TV series continues where Kawajiri's award-winning masterpiece left off! Currently in production, the series will begin airing on WOWOW in Japan in April. The series will make its home video debut first in the US this fall, with the release in Japan following in winter. "

A North American home video release coming before the Japanese home video release is a rare occurence as companies generally want to avoid reverse importation (Japanese DVD prices a significantly higher than North American prices).

Furthermore, Urban Vision informs us that the final two episodes (12 and 13) are being written in Japan right now, and will form a 2 part grand finale to the series. Aso, the home video release (DVD and VHS) will be on 3 volumes with original artwork created especially for the North American covers.
