Three prominent ladies of the 1993 Cat III boom are featured: Chung Bik-Wing, Nam Yan, Cindy Yip Sin-Yi. Amy Wong Oi-Mei is on hand as well. This is a low-budget Cat III erotic action dramedy that feels quite a bit like a pinky violence flick. This girl gang of three are quite charming to spend some time with and their various exploits are engaging. Nam Yan is particuarlly effective as the mute girl with the non-pc handle of ‘Dummy’. Not a lot of nudity but what there is pushes the boundaries of the Cat III rating.

In the late Tokugawa period, the Edo government is using Spies from Iga Province to cause the downfall of innocent provincial Daimyo. The Shogun needs to claim the assets of fallen clans in order to boost the failing economies of Edo. The Ninjahunters, jesting Sunlight or Tadanoshi Unui (Ryuhei Uchida) & gaunt Moonlight or Denosuke Kusaba (Mikeo Narita), are led by a brooding fellow named Jubei Muroto. These three ronin are not your normal ornery ruffians who are looking for a drink, a broad and someone to jab a sword into, but are in fact former samurai who, rather than follow their destroyed fiefs and murdered masters into death via seppuku, have dedicated their combined sword prowess to stopping the government from raping its daimyos for valuable resources. It turns out that in the Tokugawa era’s twilight years, one of the tools that the shogunate would screw their daimyos with would be the ninja-sometimes referred to as ‘shadows’. The ‘shadows’ would manipulate the daimyos by planting incriminating anti-shogunate evidence (therefore they could be taken over under the ruse of being treasonous or mutinous), by stealing valuable documents (asserting a fiefdom’s inalienable right of existence), or by the assassination of key political figures and lords. In a sense, the Shadow Hunters act as a kind of firefighter to the Tokugawa shogunate’s ninja bad guys; moving from land to land, offering their swords and ridding Japan of the accursed ‘shadows’ that destroyed their own clans.

The three Shadow Hunters return for another round of Ninja killing. As the film opens, the three Hunters are apart but each is attacked by a “Kunoichi”, a beautiful, deadly female Ninja. After each has dispatched with the Kunoichi, they reunite for another job thwarting shadows at the behest of a clan. Though its use has been outlawed, a mountain clan has a prized cannon that was used in the civil war. Recently, they have melted it down to make a new and more deadly weapon, even though doing so is in direct defiance of the current Shogun’s orders. The Shadow Hunters must retrieve the new cannon from the summit of the mountain and return it to the village before the Shogun’s inspectors arrive. Unbeknownst to the trio, Domoto Makaku, leader of the Shogun’s shadows, is personally coming to make sure that their mission fails. It will take more than brute strength and swords to get the cannon down the mountain and the Hunters pull out all the stops to complete the mission they’ve been assigned.
