© 1999 Madhouse / Bandai Visual
Japanese Language / English Dubbed / English Subtitled
Color / Stereo / 29 minutes


Over 300 years ago, Yagiu Jubei defeated and killed Ryujoji Daigo thus defeating the Ryujoji clan and proving once again that Yagiu Jubei and his skill is unmatched in the world. However, Jubei was seriously injured in the duel. Before dying, Jubei passed on the Lovely Eyepatch to his disciple Odago Koinosuke with instructions that he search for someone who would be a worthy bearer of the Lovely Eyepatch.

Koinosuke has searched for over 300 years for someone who matched his master's description of the one who would be worthy of the Lovely Eyepatch. Nanohana Jiyu, called Jubei by her father is in second year junior high school and has just transferred schools from Tokyo. On her way home from her new school, Jiyu meets Koinosuke who begs her to put on the Lovely Eyepatch just once. Deciding to humour the strange samurai, Jiyu puts on the Lovely Eyepatch thus awakening the power of the Lovely Eyepatch and Yagiu Jubei and in turn alerting the Ryujoji clan and school of swordsmanship that Jubei's strength has awoken and once again walks the earth. Who should be the first of the Ryujoji school to challenge her? Her homeroom teacher of course...
