I am trying to find the name of an Anime I can vaguely remember watching in my younger days. I don't remember too much of the plot, but it centred around a kid who kept getting scars after some ancestor or ghost of power etc gave them to him. There was an "evil guy" in it who was trying to get this power for himself. I know the plot was really weird, and it was almost more of a history lesson (there was always a voice over about clan X person Y fighting this guy and that guy who was the son of someone blah blah).
Sorry if this is a massively naff description but its all I can really remember of it!
Does anyone have any idea at all what I am talking about?
