One hundred years after their deaths at the hands of a former colleague, six legendary holy warriors are reborn to seek justice against the teammate who betrayed them into the hands of an evil god. Charlotte, Wan Fu, Nakoruru, Galford, and Tam Tam search the feudal province of Edo questing for their lost comrade, Haohmaru, and their sworn nemesis, Shiro Amakusa (see Ninja Resurrection). Will the followers of the divine light triumph over the forces of the dark, or is the course of history destined to repeat itself? Yes to both, as our heroes fight and fight again. Based on a video game by SNK for the Neo Geo, this video series edited into a "movie" was widely considered a disappointment by game fans. Instead of blood, characters leak a milky white liquid, and the violence levels have been watered down to match. American fans suffered even worse-the androgynous lead villain was rewritten as a woman for the U.S. release.
In the video sequel SS: Defeat of Ashura (1999), spiky-haired Haoh-maru is back with Rimururu, Nakoruru, and Galford and they're faced with a problem. Shiki, an old enemy of theirs, shows up badly hurt. Nakoruru wants to take her in, but Galford and Rimururu have other plans. They believe she should be destroyed because she's working for an agent of corruption that could destroy them all. Haomaru takes up his sword once again, to save Shiki's life and destroy the dark influence.
After the character of Nakoruru starred in a PC text adventure game, plans were announced to adapt it into a 13-part TV series. However, this project eventually transformed into a video "series," only the first chapter of which was ever released, as the 28-minute Nakoruru (2002).
