Ninja Scroll (1993)
In our family-friendly, post-Pixar world, it’s easy to forget kids of the ’90s enjoyed some adult animation—some VERY adult animation. If you’re into ultraviolence, overcomplicated plots, fingerbanging, poison kisses and superb boobs, “Ninja Scroll” is the movie for you.
Listener Eric C. encouraged “Shat The Movies” to embrace all those things in the Crew’s first viewing of this 1993 Japanese animation classic. And boy did we! Along the way, Ash noted the film’s influence on “The Matrix,” Dick Ebert felt the comic book nostalgia of his youth, and Gene Lyons asked, “Are the Japanese OK?”
Other topics on this episode include: Are anime characters Asian? Are some superpowers just too much? Do women anime fans exist? And how should you let down a ninja who offers to save your life with sex?
