Initially he was supposed to bring the first scroll back to master Tasuke, but having been disowned by him (called “stray dog orphan” and spat on) due to accidentally burning it when they were ambushed by the enemy (it was later revealed that he burned the fake, and kept the original), Fujimaru decides to embark on his own and find the remaining scrolls himself, while trying to evade the Fuma clan bent on destroying him.The show was produced by Toei Animation, their second television series.
