Blade of The Immortal. Not just a manga anymore.

April 24, 2008

Does that title tickle you? “Oh man, what? what’s going on?!” you ask yourself. Well, Hiroaki Samura’s beloved manga will be coming to the big screen (in your living room.)  That’s right, Manji & Co. is being adapted into an Anime, 22 volumes and 14 years later!

The series will be helmed by Bee Train (of Madlax fame), and character designs by Yoshimitsu Yamashita (of Samurai Champloo.) The official website has posted a promotional video.   Now, now, naysayers (myself included) will see the video, and see the huge difference in the character designs.  Just keep in mind that Hiroaki Samura creates greatness on paper, and Yoshimitsu Yamashita & Bee Train hopefully will create greatness on the screen.

While there hasn’t been any plans or announcements to bring Blade of The Immortal stateside, they have, however, announced their airing date: July 13th, on AT-X.  So those of you reading from the Land of The Rising Sun, keep your eyes peeled, and TV sets locked in.

View the promo here.

    I’ve been reading Berserk at and was looking for something that had a similar feel about it… then I found Blade of the Immortal! It satisfied all of my expectations! The art proess of Hiroaki Samura is amazingly smilar to Kentarou Miura… in the sense of motion and blood effects, in facial expressions, well… I see it anyway. Totally thrilled about who’s animating it loved Samurai Champloo.
