Blade of the Immortal ANIME






The May issue (on sale on March 25) of Kodansha's Monthly Afternoon magazine will confirm that a television anime version of Hiroaki Samura's Blade of the Immortal manga will premiere this summer in Japan. Tomokazu Seki (Escaflowne's Van, Gungrave's Beyond the Grave) will voice the main character Manji — a rōnin swordsman condemned to immortality unless he kills a thousand evil men for all the good men he killed. Rina Satou (Negima!'s Negi, Bamboo Blade's Satori) will play Manji's fellow traveler Rin. Hirofumi Nojima (Kagehisa Anotsu), Kazuya Nakai (Taito Magatsu), Masashi Ebara (Sabato Kurui), Katsuyuki Konishi (Eikū Shizuma), Daisuke Namikawa (Araya Kawakami), Mamiko Noto (Makie), Megumi Toyoguchi (Hyakurin), Toshiyuki Morikawa (Giichi), Shinichiro Miki (Shira), and Maaya Sakamoto (Machi) complete the cast.

Koichi Mashimo will direct the animators on Bee Train as he did for the .hack// franchise and Noir. Hiroyuki Kawasaki (The Irresponsible Captain Tylor, Sorcerer Hunters) will oversee the scripts, and Yoshimitsu Yamashita (Murder Princess, Samurai Champloo animation director) will design the characters. Kō Ōtani (Ayakashi Ayashi, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing) will compose the music.

Dark Horse Comics publishes the manga in North America.

So, 1st episode is out and it's subbed.

It's quite faithful to manga I have to say and can't wait for a 2nd episode, although their choice of music (opening mainly) is somewhat... lacking.

Wow Its amazing, actually I was mesmerized by the story, animation, effects, and BG music. This will be one of top animes, I am sure of it. I just hope its not only 12 episodes or a mini ova series. I want a long one around 50 episodes.

ahh is it just me or did he seem to take the death of his only sister pretty lightly? I dunno maybe when your some kind of bad ass murderer you get over the deaths of loved ones really easily or maybe he thought of it as her being reunited the her husban... either way the whole lack of emotions was a bit off to me. Maybe this series will be good but I can see it being really stupid and short as well samurai series are always a hit or miss.

Good ep 1 (followed the manga pretty well)...What I am wondering though is if chapter 132 of the manga is out...I read up to 131, but can't believe that I have to wait until December to find out what happens next! >.<
