A graphic new preview video has been published for Blade of the Immortal (known in Japan as Mugen no Juunin -IMMORTAL-), an upcoming anime based on the violent seinen manga by Hiroaki Samura about a ronin samurai who is cursed with immortality until he can attone for his sins by shedding the blood of evil men.

 

In addition to introducing the characters and setting, the preview video (below) reveals the opening theme for the series, entitled "SURVIVE OF VISION", which is performed by Kiyoharu.

 

 

The original Blade of the Immortal manga was serialized in Kodansha's Afternoon seinen manga from 1993 - 2012, and an English language version of the series is published by Dark Horse Comics, who describe the story of Blade of the Immortal as follows:

 

Manji, a ronin warrior of feudal Japan, has been cursed with immortality. To rid himself of this curse and end his life of misery, he must slay one thousand evil men! His quest begins when a young girl seeks his help in taking revenge on her parents' killers . . . and his quest won't end until the blood of a thousand has spilled!

Blade of the Immortal is directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki and features animation production by Liden Films. The series will begin simultaneous worldwide distribution (excluding some areas) exclusively on Amazon Prime Video beginning on October 10, 2019.
