Manji (Takuya Kimura) is a great samurai, but when he is unable to protect his sister, he is cursed with immortality. Hoping to regain his soul and mortality by fighting evil, he travels the lands until he encounters Rin (Hana Sugisaki) who looks a lot like his sister and needs help to avenge her parents. Manji promises to help and gets drawn deeply into the fight against Anotsu (Sôta Fukushi) and his master swordsmen.
It feels like Blade of the Immortal is one and the same scene repeated over and over again. It’s a good scene, but not that good that I wanted to see it that often and for that long.
