Blade of the Immortal is just an amazing piece of work. The art is fantastic, the story incredible and the themes so right. Samura leaves nothing to chance and captivates your mind with his brilliant talents.
Probably the best manga of it's genre, Blade of the Immortal continues to amaze and astound me, the art is quite simply, beutiful, flowing lines rather than the usual basic drawing. A mixture of language from 17th century Japan and modern day slang creates an original feel to the book, and the story line, well, amazing is an understatement. A must read for both avid manga fan's and new comers to the Japanese art form.
