Blade of the Immortal is back with a brand new TV anime adaptation, and this time, they’re describing it as a “complete adaptation”. And now, the anime’s staff are teasing fans further with the remake’s second PV.
The new PV not only previews some of the action, but also teases the anime’s OP song “Survive of Vision” by Kiyoharu. It also announced that the anime’s premiere will have two episodes, and it will happen on 10th October worldwide via Amazon Prime Video.
This new anime adapts Hiroaki Samura’s Blade of the Immortal (Mugen no Juunin) manga. He launched the manga back in December 1993 and completed the run back in 2012. It then received an anime adaptation in 2008, as well as a live-action film in 2017.
Here’s how Dark Horse comics, which distributes the manga in English, describes the manga’s story:
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!
