Readers will be drawn into this epic tale, even when there are moments they would prefer to look away. 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. While Anotsu's strange crew of Itto-ryu are splintered and fatigued, Habaki Kagimura's group of suicidal Rokki-dan soldiers is hot on their heels. Blade of the Immortal is a monumental achievement to rank alongside the greatest comics, with the total of it better than the sum of its 219 chapters, almost none of which are individually unsatisfying.

Few artists draw samurai manga as well as Hiroaki Samura, whose pages are packed with photorealistic detail while remaining fluid, dynamic, and human. It sets Rin on a path that sustains the series, initially spurred by wanting revenge on Ittō-ryū leader Anotsu Kagehisa. 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. Collects Blade of the Immortal volumes 26 to 28 in the original 7" x 10" serialized format, in a faux-leather hardcover treatment, and with a bookmark ribbon.
