The story is pretty good, but it's the unique fighting styles and action scenes that really make it worth watching. Anime similar to Ninja Scroll also include series like Berserk, Afro Samurai, and Samurai Champloo. If you want anime movies like Ninja Scroll, options include Sword of the Stranger and Sword For Truth. One film on this list, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, was even directed by Ninja Scroll director Yoshiaki Kawajiri!
