Coming in at a total runtime of 90 minutes, Blade of the Phantom Master occupies a single disc packaged in a standard-sized DVD case. The show wears an appropriate, if not slightly conservative TV MA (17+) rating due to some fairly graphic violent sequences (no nudity, sex, or particularly rough language however).
Language options are typical sub and dub meaning English and Japanese dialog tracks (presented in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound) and English subtitles beneath either if desired.
Extras are quite robust and include a making of the video segment, storyboards, production sketches, interviews with the Japanese cast, original Japanese trailers and TV spots, clean opening and closing themes, and Funimation trailers.
The story begins in the scorching desert where lead character Munsu, an agent once obliged to a now-fallen kingdom (Jushin), meets up with a fellow traveler who actually ends up saving his life. It turns out Munsu has actually crossed paths with a young man on a camel who happens to be traveling to his homeland after having failed to acquire the skills necessary to save his girl from the clutches of a detested dictator.Read more ›
but what i will say is the film leaves you confused when it first starts, the hero of the film is more like an angry, grow up quick or die kinda person, and it leaves you at the end wanting to know what will happen next so if your looking for something great to watch definately check it out.
Based on the legendary Korean manwha "Shin Angyo Onshi", it follows the tale of the anti-hero Munsu in his quest for vengeance against the demonic Aji Tae. This movie chronicles one of Munsu's and Sando's earlier adventures, but that's really about it. The build-up towards the main film's plot is painfully rushed, and the question and hints regarding Munsu's quest are left blankly dangling about.
While I *would* like to recommend purchasing the original manwha after watching the film, that's a rather impossible task seeing as it was never released in an English-language format, and with no release-window in sight.
The lack of accessibility ultimately makes this one a no-go, but if you care only for eye-candy, it does boast some extremely well-done animation and fight scenes, even if some of the CGI looks rather conspicuous at times.
