Yes, it was a great show. I never did like anime and I still don't, but Ronin Warriors is the only exception. It's the best anime cartoon ever and the only good one, just my opinion though. My favorite warrior is Sai and my favorite warlord is Anubis.
The show seemed to have quite a lot of similarities to Mortal Kombat. The most obvious one is the Ancient and Raiden. Both have a similar outfit with hat, both are protectors of the mortal realm, and they both have a staff, the Ancient is practically Raiden in animated form. There is also a Netherealm in the show just like in Mortal Kombat. Anubis' weapon can kind of be similar to Scorpion's spear, the yellow coat he wears in his armor kind of looks like Scorpion's ninja uniform, and Anubis' story is almost like Scorpion's now that Scorpion is working for the elder gods. Sekhmet's poison corrodes stuff and it's rumored that he's half human, half snake, just like Reptile. Kale has the power of darkness like Noob Saibot. Kayura has sais and is very speedy like Mileena and her story is kind of similar to Kitana. And there's probably lots more similarities.
I guess this might be why I liked the show, but it was probably the action that appealed to me. An alternative to Ronin Warriors would probably be Sailor Moon, but I didn't find that show or any other anime interesting. Ronin Warriors is the only anime I watched, it's too bad it only lasted 39 episodes. Hopefully they bring it back soon like to maybe Cartoon Network, that's the last time it was on about five years ago and it was only on a few months then got quickly taken off the air.
