UPDATE (September 12, 2019): A gory new trailer for Amazon Prime Videos’ Blade of the Immortal has surfaced, showcasing blood-soaked kills based directly from the manga panels they’re inspired from. The first season is expected to arrive on October 10.


Original Story (Aug 10, 2019): Following the live-action film released two years ago, Blade of the Immortal is making a return, this time as a TV anime adapted from Hiroaki Samura’s original manga series.

Set during the mid-Tokugawa Shogunate period in Japan, Blade of the Immortal tells the tale of the samurai Manji who has been doomed with a curse that makes him live forever. In order to regain mortality, he must make amends for his wrongdoings by slaying 1,000 evil men. What ensues is a dark, spiraling adventure that poses some complex questions about morality.

Gearing up for its official launch, a teaser trailer has been unveiled, alongside the names of all the main cast members and staff. Some notable people include Hiroshi Hamasaki, as the director; Tadashi Kudo, art director; Aiko Shinohara, color design; Yukihiro Masumoto, DOP; Eiko Ishibashi, music and Liden Films for the animation production. This upcoming adaptation follows an earlier 2008 TV series that was produced by Bee Train and Production I.G.

The new Blade of the Immortal TV series will be exclusively available on Amazon Prime Video at the start of October 2019. Scroll above for the teaser trailer and keep it locked here for further updates on the upcoming series.
