The Legend of the Dog Warriors: The Hakkenden any good?
Sorry, I meant to respond to this. I haven't seen this version, but it follows the same folk tale as Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East and Fuse: Memoirs of a Huntress. Minus the bishonen factor of the former and more 90's ish artwork than the latter.
[Unless it's no longer available, I'd say if you're into Japanese folk tales and legends and it isn't going for much, I would buy the series.]
