Talking Interested in samurai and ninja anime

How's it going? I'm new to this forum and before it seems like I'm spamming I'll get to the point.

I'm looking for a new anime to watch and recently I've been watching shows like Naruto, Samurai Champloo, Samurai 7, Rurouni Kenshin, the Samurai X OVAs and the movie Blood: The Last Vampire. I know that these anime range in realism and in content but I can't really put my finger on why I seem to like them except for the fact that they all have ninjas and swords and stuff like that. Another thing that might help out in trying to select a specific suggestion is that I also like Cowboy Bebop because of the attention to detail on the artwork and also the story line which seems to weave multiple characters together. I was wondering if you could give me a suggestion as to a anime I should check out?

i agree completely with those suggestions.. they are all very good animes.. i especially liked hunter x hunter and berserk. also if you're into hand-to-hand combat.. also check out airmaster.. it has some great fighting.. besides those i dont really know of anymore samurai/ninja series' but if you liked cowboy bebop i suggest to try trigun.. its licensed though, so unless you buy/rent it you're probably out of luck.. it was one of the first animes i saw.. and im not sure of others opinions but i found something about it similar to cowboy bebop.. anyways good luck on your search

thought of a couple movies i missed.. check out ninja scroll and princess mononoke.. they also play into the whole ninja/samurai fighting style in certain ways.

thanks

Thanks for the suggestions...

I've already watched all of Trigun. I have the DVD set of that along with Cowboy Bebop. I've watched alot of the Inuyasha eps but I don't really seem to like the story behind it for some reason or the english voice overs. Also I've watched Princess Mononoke and Ninja Scroll.

I downloaded Bleach 1-10 last night and I've played through 1-3 and found it to be pretty good so far.

I'll check out Hunter X Hunter, Samurai Deep Kyo and Berserk as well when I get the chance. Thanks for the suggestions.
