Description

Alternatively the same content has already appeared twice in smaller format books, initially as three slimmer paperbacks Blood of a Thousand, Cry of the Worm, and Dreamsong, and then combined as the first Blade of the Immortal Omnibus. 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.

This volume presents Hiroaki Samura's complete "Demon Lair" story arc--which features a massive prison brawl helmed by young Rin--and the "Footsteps" story arc, which builds up to Blade of the Immortal 's intense, multi-volume final battle! Blade of the Immortal has won numerous awards across the globe, including the Eisner Award in America, the prestigious Media Arts Award of Japan, and multiple British Eagle Awards-among many other international accolades. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Purists also quibble about the production process of re-pasting the panels page by page to create the front to back reading experience, as in the years since Blade of the Immortal first appeared in English we’ve become used to reading manga from back to front as the Japanese do. Hiroaki Samura’s manga epic ends in this massive deluxe hardcover with over 700 pages of strange sword-fighting action!

It’s set in the late 1700s, a pre-industrial era when Japan was isolated from the remainder of the world, and one in which Samura knew several memorable and long-running Samurai series had already been set, so the ambition on his part was monumental.

At the same time the Ittō-ryū swordsmen are on a mission to close down all other sword schools that won’t adopt their more broad based methods.Readers will be drawn into this epic tale, even when there are moments they would prefer to look away.
