In anticipation for the upcoming live-action adaptation of Samura Hiroaki’s Blade Of The Immortal film directed by Takashi Miike, the manga’s publisher Kodansha has re-issued new editions of the manga, with brand new cover art by Samura Hiroaki. Check out the covers for the first three volumes below :
No doubt this move is to reinvigorate the readership for the manga, the original run which spanned 2 decades from 1993 to 2012. I also previously showcased a selection of the original cover art in this post.
With many of my volumes old and fox-eared from years of reading, maybe it is a good time to recollect the entire manga again…*strokes chin*
More covers ( front only ) can be seen on Amazon Japan.
