Mugen no Juunin: Immortal (2019)


rather eye-catching. if you're not squeamish, this will probably work for you.

More traditional style of the manga and much more blood and gore of the 2008 release. The Amazon release intends to cover the entire series but with countless remakes and even live action. I doubt there isn't a lot more that can be done differently. More gritty more gore. Not much but reach a new generation of fans to an old series. Blade of the Immortal still stands as a masterpiece no matter who remakes it.


i relly liked it two thumbs up :]

Blade of the Immortal (2008)


This is pretty blac, both thematically and literally. But I like the tension between the narrative about murder, vengence and redemption and the upbeat jazz score.


Dark, Brouding and Bloody. Art style is well done, lots of detail.

Michael Eh?

This is a classic in literature and art no matter where you call home. This takes the Immortality to be more of a nightmare than a dream. The only problem is visually the first episode is dark as in hard to see. Thankfully, the animators crank the contrast up in the second episode.
