Comment: Personally, I think this is the most visually stunning title that Criterion has. This is the Dual Format copy of the Criterion Collection edition box set of "Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman" This is Criterion #679. Packaging and discs are in excellent condition. I have two of these both are in the same condition except the one in the photo is in opened shrink wrap. If you get the other copy it's not in shrink wrap. These are opened, but most of the discs have never been watched. What has been watched is in pristine condition. Please take a look at my photos. All discs, book, packaging and slip box are in excellent condition.

Editorial Reviews

The colossally popular Zatoichi films make up the longest-running action series in Japanese history and created one of the screen’s great heroes: an itinerant blind masseur who also happens to be a lightning-fast swordsman. As this iconic figure, the charismatic and earthy Shintaro Katsu became an instant superstar, lending a larger-than-life presence to the thrilling adventures of a man who lives staunchly by a code of honor and delivers justice in every town and village he enters. The films that feature him are variously pulse-pounding, hilarious, stirring, and completely off-the-wall. This deluxe set features the string of twenty-five Zatoichi films made between 1962 and 1973, collected in one package for the first time.
