Not a film for children, Memoirs of a Lady Ninja is a low-budget movie staring Saori Hara, also known as Mai Nanami, an adult-film actress turned AV Idol, as the lead, Hijiri, a blue-eyed ninja with mother issues, set up for the theft of a scroll containing the secret of immortality. After falling from a cliff face, she is rescued by Seitaro (played by Mutsuo Yoshioka), a Christian who brings her back to health. They are soon pinned between henchmen out to retrieve the scroll for their master and a religious sect who believe Christianity to be heresy. It all culminates in the final battle, where Hijiri must discover the way to defeat an immortal enemy. This film is often graphic in both violence and adult situations. While it is sometimes unintentionally funny, this film is the uncomfortable combination of an exploitative, low-budget horror B-movie, adult film and campy Christian film. An interesting watch for fans of Hong Kong Category III films (Rated X in the United States), this movie is absolutely not for the squeamish, as the two graphic elements are combined at times. The film was released on DVD in the U.S.A. by Tokyo Shock, a sub label of New York-based Media Blasters. It was originally released by GP Museum of Japan, now All In Entertainment, known for their Anime Original Video Animations (OVA) and popular dramatic films. It was written by Koutaro Ando, directed by Jiro Ishikawa and produced by Naomi Go and Kazuaki Kubo Jiro Ishikawa has also directed a sequel to the film. However, it is a sequel in name only, as none of the original film's characters continue in the second movie.

Blowing like a wind and a cloud, a blue-eyed female ninja with a painful destiny has arrived! Ninja are assassins with remarkable abilities, and that remains true for their female subset, the kunoichi. When one particular blue-eyed lady ninja discovers a secret scroll of immortality, she finds herself succumbing to the tragic fate of all those who work from the shadows. Inured after discovering the scroll in a treasure box owned by a Christian feudal lord, she is saved by a hidden Christian with whom she grows close to. Their happiness lasts only a short while, as Buddhist followers declare Christianity the "paganism of the West" and unleash their wrath on those they deem heathen and any who associate with them.
