ABOUT THE SERIES : This classic Japanese samurai TV series (1962-1965) portrays the adventures of a roving samurai, Akikusa Shintaro (whose real name is Matsudaira Nobuchiyo), played by Ose Koichi. Set in the 17th century Japan and is a combination of pantomime, violent action, brilliant sword play and magicianship. Shintaro is the older half-brother of Ienari, the 11th Tokugawa shogun. Because he is the son of a concubine, he has no claim to power, so he assumes the guise of a wandering spy-swordsman (along with the name Shintaro) to seek out and eliminate plots by rival warlords, in this way protecting his younger brother, who is still a minor. Acting on secret orders from roju (chief councillor) Matsudaira Sadanobu, Shintaro gathers information in the various fiefdoms and battles rival warriors and spies, aided by his Iga Ninja friend Tombei the Mist ( Japanese: Kiri no Tonbei), as played by Fuyukichi Maki. Shintaro is also helped by Shusaku (played by Omori Shunsuke), whose father has been kidnapped by Koga ninja, and whom Shusaku and Shintaro are also trying to find.
The series, originally known in Japan as Onmitsu Kenshi, has some memorable villains, especially those played by Bin Amatsu, including the imposing Kongo of Koga, the other-worldly Fuma Kotaro (a descendant of the famous 16th century ninja Fuma Kotaro) and Gensai the Wolf. Genkuro Momochi, played by Toshiyuki Katsuki, is another villain who has a genuinely menacing screen presence; as well as a prominent scar in the middle of his brow. The Negishi (Negoro) ninja leaders Garidoshi (played by Yoshio Yoshida) and Onime the Bat (a one-eyed evil-doer with a shuriken for an eye-patch) also projects an aura of menace.
of the charm of this classic TV series is the poor dubbing of
