During Japan’s transition to the modern era Shinkai, a warrior monk carrying a hidden sword, roved around the nation breaking all the commandments of a priest, including fighting, gambling, and running after women. Starring the legendary Wakayama Tomisaburo in one of the last series he did for Toei before going on to world fame as Lone Wolf, Assassin with Child. Tinged with humor and human pathos, the 5 movies feature, most of all, his remarkable fighting skills. Starting out with the first movie which introduces the amiable Shinkai and his mortal enemy, Ryotatsu, the Whipmaster, a rival warrior monk driven to exact revenge against Shinkai. Bloody violence and superb swordplay make this a series for the ages!
