Hiroaki Samura's massive manga series spawned two anime adaptations, a spinoff novel, an art book, and a live-action film! Hiroaki Samura's manga epic ends in this massive deluxe hardcover with over 700 pages of strange sword-fighting action! 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. 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.

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.
