Description

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! 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’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.

Intense and audacious, Blade takes period samurai action and deftly combines it with a modernist street idiom to create a style and mood like no other work of graphic fiction.
