Based on the manga Blade of the Immortal, Miike’s adaptation is an apt effort to mark his one-hundredth feature. In the original comic, immortal warrior Manji has to kill a hundred to regain his soul. This being Miike the body count exceeds that number. With the ability to regenerate his flesh as the result of being administered blood worms, the brooding Manji is implored by Rin to avenge her father’s death at the hands of the eclectic cast of master swordsmen. Thus begins a rollercoaster ride of bravura swordplay, droll humour and chicanery.
