Paths cross, swords clash, and all the pieces begin to fall into place for a ferocious final battle in this penultimate omnibus volume of Hiroaki Samura's spellbinding masterpiece. 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. 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. This volume also features the debut of the mysterious Mugai-ryu warriors, who will become major players in this revenge epic from a modern manga master! Samura’s stark black-and-white drawings combine precision and a gritty, gestural line in riveting, powerfully expressive illustrations . Hiroaki Samura's massive manga series spawned two anime adaptations, a spinoff novel, an art book, and a live-action film!

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.
