Jubei-chan the Ninja Girl

I finally got around to watching this series, I had it sitting there for about a year now I had almot forgot about it.

I watched the first 4 episodes, it's okay I guess it's sort of like a magical girl anime but replace the magical girl with a samurai and replace monsters with other samurais. It's a bit silly and wacky the series, the dad is an idiot, same with the 3 ruffian guys, the samurai in search of the succesor for Jubei turns into some shriveled up old man at times, and every male is obessed with Jiyu/Jubeis chest ..

Fight scenes are pretty good shame they are so short, well hopefully the fights will be longer later on in the series.

Animation was a bit off putting, some characters look anime style and some others look western, the mix well doesn't quite work for me .. like those 3 ruffian guys

Well it's a pretty alright series, nothing fancy really.

Well I enjoyed it. And all for the bargain price of $59.95.

But yeah for the price it's not a bad series. It has a good mix of comedy and fighting scenes. Even if some of the jokes wear a little thin. I mean the "Lost Again" joke wasn't funny the first time. I'm wondering when we will get Jubei-chan 2 - The Revenge of Siberia Yagyuu

I've watched a few more episodes, I don't know I'm beginning to grow tired of the series, it better pick up soon with the action.

As for the second series, I checked the website it looks a lot darker then the first one. So hopefully it'll be more samurai action packed .. and those stupid ruffians better not be in it!

It could have been a great series.

I think was greatly dimished by the constant vouyeristic pans of Jubei. And the three idots didn't help much either.

The bamboo forest scenes were quite good and the over-all plot was quite amusing. If only they hadn't ruined it by adding the pointless (well, not literally -- heh heh) fan service...

I heard there was nudity in it. I was disapointed...

It's one of the few animes that hit an emotional chord with me, and I can't wait for the sequal.

The voice acting was good, in fact it was better than the Japanese in some areas. Like Tenchi... "Boob Touch!"
