Kage no Gundan II is an old favorite from my youth. In Sacramento, CA, in the early 1980s, one of our local channels would play this program on Sunday evenings. The intrigue, action and music made it a perfect show to enjoy to close the weekend out with. For me, this is Sonny Chiba at his finest. Playing a leader of a hunted Iga Ninja unit in search of the “Dark Shogun” and his minions. The concept of a small band of people doing good in the shadows against much larger forces has always been a favorite plot.
