About Blade of the Immortal Deluxe Edition Manga Omnibus Volume 1 (Hardcover)

Blade of the Immortal Deluxe Edition Manga Omnibus Volume 1 contains volumes 1-3 in an oversized bookshelf hardcover format with high quality paper, a faux-leather cover, plus a satin bookmark and features story and art by Hiroaki Samura.

A cursed, seemingly immortal warrior aids a young girl in her quest for revenge, as the students of a brutal new sword school tear a bloody path across Japan. Hiroaki Samura’s massive manga series spawned two anime adaptations, a spinoff novel, an art book, and a live-action film! Samura’s storytelling tour-de-force also won Japan’s Media Arts Award, several British Eagle Awards, and an Eisner Award, among other international accolades. Intense and audacious, Blade takes period samurai action and deftly combines it with a modernist street idiom to create a style and mood like no other work of graphic fiction.

Gorgeous Artwork and Excellent Story Presented in High Quality

by -

The large, quality pages of this edition are the optimal way to read this manga. The quality and presentation in this edition is excellent, much like the other deluxe editions from Dark Horse (Berserk and Hellsing).

A note about it being read left-to-right instead of the traditional Japanese right-to-left. Blade of the Immortal was first translated and published many years ago when it was standard to mirror the panels to read in a western format. However, at the behest of the author, and unique to this series, the panels weren't mirrored, but instead cut out individually and rescanned so that it could be read left-to-right without altering specific details (e.g. Manji's scar appearing on the right eye). As a result, it's still the only official English format we have, and it has been this way in every English edition released. While it's a shame we don't have right-to-left, it really doesn't detract from the story and artwork of the piece and is still completely worth your time.

Super high-quality release

by -

1) Great faux-leather covers - the book just feels perfect to the touch
2) Love the sewn binding - really hope more publishers start doing this for their bigger releases
3) Fantastic paper quality

Really hope other publishers look at this release and that of Berserk's and follow in their footsteps.
