Genre: Action, Drama, Fantasy, Historical Settings, Samurai/Ninja
Year Published: 1994
Author: Hiroaki Samura
Publisher: Kodansha

Summary
In the chaotic world of eighteenth-century Japan, outlaw samurai who settle disputes with their blades aren't uncommon. But one rônin is different: the wandering outlaw who calls himself Manji. Years ago, he betrayed his corrupt lord, and since then he's killed a hundred men and earned a reputation as the toughest man in Japan. Of course, every other would-be tough guy who wants to make a name for himself is gunning for Manji, but they don't know his secret: a cranky old nun has filled his body with mystical "holy bloodworms" that repair any damage done to Manji's body. He can't die... even if he wants to! Tiring of the burden of immortality, Manji makes a deal with the nun — if he makes up for his past crimes by slaying one thousand evil men, she'll remove the bloodworms from his body. When Manji is hired by an angry young woman named Rin, who is seeking revenge for the murder of her parents, his task is only just beginning!

Like Kintaro Miurah's Berserk, Blade of the Immortal does not screw around. It is graphicly violent and tells a dark story.

The violence and weapon-usage may seem a bit over the top, but it only enhances the coolness of Manji. If you like Berserk, you will no doubt love BOTI.

Very good manga if you can stomach the brutal storyline. This series does not hold any punches. Plenty fo blood, brutallity, murder, and even rape. Well drawn and a good, although sometimes drawn out story line.
