Takashi Miike’s BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL To Release on 2nd April 2018 from Arrow Video





Arrow Video is proud to present Blade of the Immortal on 2nd April 2018 on DVD, Blu-Ray and Steelbook.

The thrilling, action-packed film is the 100th feature from the Japanese master of genre films, Takashi Miike (Audition, 13 Assassins).

Based on the Manga series of the same name by Hiroaki Samura, Blade stars Takuya Kimura (Love and Honour) as Manji, a highly skilled samurai, who becomes cursed with immortality after a legendary battle. Haunted by the brutal murder of his sister, Manji knows that only fighting evil will regain him his soul. He promises to help a young girl named Rin (Hana Sugisaki) avenge her parents, who were killed by a group of master swordsmen led by ruthless warrior Anotsu (Sôta Fukushi).

The mission will change Manji in ways he could never imagine… This blistering samurai film matches impressive performances with an impossibly high body-count and expertly-filmed scenes of combat. Blade is set to become one of its directors most revered films, and is presented here by Arrow Video with a wealth of special features.
