Hiroaki Samura’s massive manga series spawned two anime adaptations, a spinoff novel, an art book, and a live-action film! Blade of the Immortal is a monumental achievement to rank alongside the greatest comics, with the total of it better than the sum of its 219 chapters, almost none of which are individually unsatisfying. Few artists draw samurai manga as well as Hiroaki Samura, whose pages are packed with photorealistic detail while remaining fluid, dynamic, and human.Collects Blade of the Immortal volumes 1 to 3 in the original 7x10 serialized format, in a faux-leather hardcover treatment, and with a bookmark ribbon. Samura is a master of movement, and the characters really sweep across the pages during the incredibly choreographed action sequences.

Hiroaki Samura's manga epic ends in this massive deluxe hardcover with over 700 pages of strange sword-fighting action! Dishonoured military leader Kagimura must destroy Anotsu and the hated Itto-ryu school, so he forms the new Rokki-dan gang of odd criminal misfits to help him track Anotsu down.

Disgraced Edo officer Habaki faces the devious Anotsu in a decisive showdown, while Manji, Rin, and only a few others witness the end of an era. It’s populated by numerous memorable characters, each given an interesting visual presence and a strong personality, using incredible bladed weapons that have the feel of period accuracy, but like all else have been created by the fertile mind of Hiroaki Samura. Miike takes the cast on a skim through some primary plots, and while it lacks the philosophical depth, it’s true to the spirit of the series and the major players, with only a single scene really giving away one of Samura’s big surprises.

Samura’s manga epic was made into a complete anime series in 2008 and was adapted into a live-action film by Takashi Miike in 2017.While Anotsu's strange crew of Itto-ryu are splintered and fatigued, Habaki Kagimura's group of suicidal Rokki-dan soldiers is hot on their heels.

Collects Blade of the Immortal volumes 29 to 31 in the original 7" x 10" serialized format, in a faux-leather hardcover treatment, and with a bookmark ribbon. It’s a rich and complex drama with a strong core relationship between the immortal Manji and the young Rin, and a constantly shifting moral high ground, where shades of grey and immediate practicality predominate.
