Over 700 pages of samurai swordplay and grudge matches in one killer, value-priced collection, featuring Hiroaki Samura's fast-paced "Mirror of the Soul," "Last Blood," and "Trickster" story arcs! Kidnapped and bound by three Itto-ryu warriors, Rin is unable to warn her bodyguard, Manji--the seemingly immortal swordsman, that he's heading into a trap. The Itto-ryu thugs also possess a large dose of the only known poison to damage Manji's blood and severely cripple his regenerative abilities. And is the Mugai-ryu assassin Giichi following Manji in order to help rescue Rin . . . or will he just stick around long enough to finish off any survivors? Collects Blade of the Immortal volumes 13 to 15 in the original 7x10 serialized format, in a faux-leather hardcover treatment, and with a bookmark ribbon.
