We read Blade of the Immortal for the Major Spoilers Podcast, and we all seem to get a big kick out of the ongoing series. Now, a movie based on the manga is set to be released on the world, and the red band trailer brings the jarring images from the series to bloody life.
Samurai Manji has taken a lot of lives, both innocent and guilty, and now lives life in feudal Japan as a criminal. After being cursed with immortality until he kills enough evil men, Manji meets a young girl who enlists him to be her body-guard. Swearing loyalty, protection and vengeance against the group of sword fighters who slaughtered her family, the unlikely duo set on a remarkable quest to make right against those who did them wrong.
Blade of the Immortal arrives in theaters on November 3, 2017.
