Official BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL English-Sub Trailer Released

An official English-subbed trailer for Takashi Miike’s samurai epic Blade of the Immortal has been released ahead of its forthcoming North American release.

If you were wondering if the recently announced North American release of Blade of the Immortal would be subbed or dubbed, here's your answer. Juding by the trailer, it seems the release will opt for English-subtitles rather than cast English voice actors for a dub.  

With a release date still not set, the fact that the film will have subtitles could be an indication that it will hit North American cinemas sooner rather than later.


SYNOPSIS

To end his eternal suffering, he must slay one thousand enemies! Manji, a ronin warrior of feudal Japan, has been cursed with immortality. To rid himself of this curse and end his life of misery, he must slay one thousand evil men! His quest begins when a young girl seeks his help in taking revenge on her parents' killers . . . and his quest won't end until the blood of a thousand has spilled!

WB Japan will release the film on April 29, 2017 during Golden Week.

Hiroaki Samura first launched the manga in Kodansha's Monthly Afternoon magazine in 1993 and concluded it in 2012 at 30 volumes. There are currently 5 million copies in print across 20+ countries. It previously won an Eisner Award in 2000. Dark Horse publishes the manga in North America and will release an omnibus in the near future. A 13-episode anime from Bee Train and Production I.G. aired in 2008 and retold a very condensed version of the first 6 volumes.
