The year is 1614. The Iga and the Kouga, two rival ninja clans of legendary skill, have carved out a tenuous truce after centuries of bitter warfare. The two young heirs to leadership of the clans, the beautiful Oboro and the gifted Gennosuke, are betrothed and hope through their union to finally bring an end to the bloodshed. But the Shogunate has other plans. Representatives from both clans are summoned to the capital and told that they will help determine who will inherit the seat of power, by taking the ten best warriors from each clan and fighting to the death. The treaty lifted, years of hatred resurface. Is all hope for peace lost? Based on acclaimed manga series, Basilisk is a fantastical, violent epic of love and vengeance in ancient Japan.
