                          NINJAS FACE SAMURAIS IN BLOODY

Its official!! Undead Ninjas are again attacking lone Samurais despite the
express threat of severed limbs and in some cases even decapitation. These
stunning revelations have come with the incredible release by UK animation
giants Manga Entertainment of the gut wrenching anime Sword For Truth, which
will be available in the UK from 20th April 1998.

Ancient feudal Japan was ruled by clans of Shoguns - and their rule was
absolute. They owned the entire land and all the people on it - all but one
that is! Shuranosuke, the master swordsman, walks alone and unafraid bearing
his distinctive "Scythes of Death" crest and slashing a swathe through anyone
who stands in his way.

In this action-packed anime adventure, Shuranosuke is hired by the Tokugawa
Shogunate to rescue princess Mayu from the clutches of a group of bandit
ninjas, the Seki Ninja. They will stop at nothing to prevent him from
succeeding and call on the undead spirits of Seki Ninjas in Hell to assist

Shuranosuke's skills are put to the ultimate test as he leaves a trail of
blood, severed limbs and utter carnage behind him in a desperate attempt to
save the Princess. Classic samurai action from a swordsman that would stripe-up
Zoro like a zebra and turn Touche Turtle in to Tortoise Teriyaki.
