Gripping, from the get go, it is gripping.
So many flavors, so many point plots are alluded in the first 5 pages of the story. To even give hint to the eccentricities of the plots and subplot risks taking away form the pure enjoyment value of this manga.

Should an immortal samurai have a conscience? The concept of "immortality is not invincibility" plays so well in this first book. Along with the struggle between Western Ideals and Japanese tradition, this broadens the flavor of concepts in a cultural mix.

The Story is well done, and the artwork is amazing. It all flows together smoothly and switches between pen and pencil drawings. Both media's looks top quality and fit perfectly together, the pen is the main media used to tell most of the story, where as the pencil is a far more realistically/life filled image put at important/strategic locations to help add to the entire experience. I find it helps brings the entire story to life and flow really well, I feel amazed at how lively this touch makes the story for me at the very least. It just feels too right.

The problem and the reason for the two stars missing is entirely on the books condition... It was supposedly in top not quality (forgot the name for it), but instead it had some messed up corners and about 5-15 pages in the center of the book work folded and creased in the book sloppily... Disappointing...

This remind you of a western with John Wayne
and a young girl, but with much more energy , better story line, and not afraid to true to its culture. Excellent Book

Great Manga Series. A word of caution to anyone starting this series on kindle they only have it for digital up to volume 6 after that your outta luck and will have to purchase the physical manga.

Blade of the Immortal seems to start out as a simple story of a warrior who can not die. We seem to start after Manji has gained immortality, without the reader getting any real knowledge of how he got it or why. He follow him as he gets a job helping a girl get revenge. The fact is he is kind of self centered, selfish and, sometimes, a jerk. How did he get the gift of being immortal? And why does he wish to end his life? Is it really so much of a curse? A blessing? Only time will tell.

Read through this volume reasonably quickly. Would like to mention that there is a lot of sword fighting and blood for those new to Blade of the Immortal, should you not mind that then enjoy reading the following volumes to come.

What's not to like!!
Since I've been a fan of this particular comic since I was a kid/teen, I was thrilled to find it as a kindle...

The art is beautiful and the story is catchy. There is a fantastic plot twist that blew me away, I did not see it coming at all.
