In the tunnels beneath Edo Castle, Rin and Doa search for their missing loved ones and face a seemingly endless run of strange foes.
Dishonored military leader Kagimura must destroy Anotsu and the hated Itto-ryu school, so he forms the new Rokki-dan gang of odd criminal misfits to help him track Anotsu down. This volume presents Hiroaki Samura’s complete “Demon Lair” story arc—which features a massive prison brawl helmed by young Rin—and the “Footsteps” story arc, which builds up to Blade of the Immortal’s intense, multi-volume final battle!
Blade of the Immortal has won numerous awards across the globe, including the Eisner Award in America, the prestigious Media Arts Award of Japan, and multiple British Eagle Awards—among many other international accolades. Samura’s manga epic was made into a complete anime series in 2008 and was adapted into a live-action film by Takashi Miike in 2017.
Collects Blade of the Immortal volumes 20 to 22 in the original 7" x 10" serialized format, in a faux-leather hardcover treatment, and with a bookmark ribbon.
