Description


Blade of the Immortal returns in deluxe hardcover editions, collecting Hiroaki Samura's epic series for the first time in its original 7x10 serialized format.


A young survivor continues her quest across feudal Japan to avenge the murder of her parents, joined by her seemingly immortal protector.

The eccentric Ittö-ryü sword school carves a path to Edo castle--led by the bloodthirsty Anotsu--as they obliterate all rival schools along the way. They don't know that the deadly Mugai-ryü has formed and is waiting--with the sole purpose of destroying Anotsu's clan!

This epic manga series won Japan's Media Arts Award, several British Eagle Awards, and an Eisner Award, among other international accolades. Relentless and shocking, Blade takes Edo-era samurai action and combines it with modernist street idioms to create a style and mood like no other work of graphic fiction.

Collects Blade of the Immortal volumes 4 to 6 in the original 7x10 serialized format, in a faux-leather hardcover treatment, and with a bookmark ribbon.
