Blade of the Immortal Anime in Summer 2008!

Yet another awesome welcoming anime to kick off Summer 2008! As a long time, more-than-a-decade big fan of the manga series (since 1994), I’m proud to say that Blade of the Immortal is finally about to have its first anime series! :D

Kodansha Monthly Afternoon magazine of the May issue (released today) had confirmed that a television anime version of Hiroaki Samura’s Blade of the Immortal manga will premiere this summer in Japan. To those who are unfamiliar with the manga, it follows the story of Manji, a ronin swordsman who had killed 100 samurai in the past (including his sister’s husband), had finally decided to repent his dark history by condemning himself to immortality, at the cost of killing another 1000 bad guys :D Looking forward to it this Summer 2008! ^__^

  • Manji - Tomozaku Seki (Escaflowne’s Van, Gungrave’s Beyond the Grave)
  • Rin - Rina Satou (Negima!’s Negi, Bamboo Blade’s Satori)
