About this deal

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. While providing the thrilling background, this content only begins to introduce the complexity that so frequently alters what we feel about some characters. Samura’s storytelling tour-de-force also won Japan’s Media Arts Award, several British Eagle Awards, and an Eisner Award, among other international accolades.

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!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.

Few artists draw samurai manga as well as Hiroaki Samura, whose pages are packed with photorealistic detail while remaining fluid, dynamic, and human. The omnibus spines are really cool but it will most likely bend and curve if they are read multiple times. 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.

Hiroaki Samura’s massive manga series spawned two anime adaptations, a spinoff novel, an art book, and a live-action film! A young survivor's seemingly immortal protector, Manji, is helping her destroy the eccentric, bloodthirsty Itto-ryu sword school that ambushed and killed her parents. It should be noted from the start that Blade of the Immortal features exceptionally bloody violence, and the consequences of it, so it’s not for the weak-stomached. These Deluxe editions are hardcovers, printing the story at the same page size as it was originally seen in Japan, rather than digest size as previously.But the deluxe editions have a simplistic spine which makes it look neat and it’s hardcover so no bending curve.
