I’ve heard a lot about Eisner Award winning American reprint of a Japanese manga that I just had to try it when I chanced upon a few random volumes in a bargain bookstore.

Dark Horse made this book left to right reading orientation instead of the original Japanese right to left. It didn’t settle for a straight mirror image though, but reposted the original panels to make it a more Western reading experience. The publishing company took care to respect the author’s original intentions.

Blade of the Immortal is a much darker read than the usual shonen manga that I follow. It appeals to a much mature audience. My only gripe is that it end abruptly and I have no idea where to get the next volume. This title is definitely on my hunting list every time I do my regular bargain book hunting.
