Basilisk

Show Summary

Containing the elements of a classic tragedy, this anime show is similar in some ways to a Shakespeare Novel: Romeo & Juliet. The story begins right after a long running cease-fire between two rival clans (Kouga and Iga) was abolished. These clans have been battling each for centuries and they share a inner hate against each other before the cease-fire was made. To make matters worse, the cease-fire has been abolished at the worst possible time, because by the clans initiative a fusion has been planned with the marriage between Kouga Gennosuke and Oboro Iga. Now the clans have no alternative but wage war against each other. But Gennosuke of the Kouga clan and Oboro of the Iga clan, despite the arranged marriage, are truly in love. Can their love prevail or will a centuries-old blood feud be too much for the young lovers to overcome?
