In feudal Japan, the townsfolk are under attack by fantastical creatures that appear out of nowhere, summoned by henchmen of the evil Kokusengen. Coming to their aid is an ancient clan of calligraphers whose drawings come to life, whether in the form of a giant sword, a wall to protect them, or monsters to do their bidding. Shiro, Shimaki and Ena must draw and battle their way to victory before their adversaries' creations put them in the grave.

Ninja Scroll

Ninja Scroll
  • Movie (1 ep x 92 min)
  • 1993

Jubei Kibagami is just a wandering swordsman minding his own business... until fate lands him in the middle of a battle with the terrifying Devils of Kimon! Now the fate of all of Japan lies in the hands of a vagabond samurai, a deadly female ninja and a perverted old monk as they take on an enemy who is, literally, immortal.

Ninja Scroll and Shoka are pretty similar. Both are set in feudal Japan, have ninja with very unique abilities, and many short battles. I think fans of one will enjoy the other.

Tenpou Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi: Ayashi Divine Comedy

Tenpou Ibun Ayakashi Ayashi: Ayashi Divine Comedy
  • DVD Special (5 eps x 24 min)
  • 2007

Six months after being reluctantly accepted as slayers of Yoi, the ayakashi find themselves once more as wanted criminals. A distinct lack of monster prey has also left the group listless and concerned about their futures. However, it seems the Yoi are never too far away and Edo once more finds itself in the center of supernatural occurrences with the appearance of a man-eating mermaid and a fire- loving cat spirit. Is Yuki prepared to once more fight these adversaries, or is the threat of imprisonment just too much of a risk?

Shoka and TIAA are very similar - both are set in feudal Japan and have a group or a person who can use characters as a weapon against monsters.
