One thought on “#37: Blade of the Immortal (2017)”

  1. Well, I watched, finally.
    I actually liked a bit. Yes, is extremely dumbed down (this is just the first arc of the story), but for me that aren’t used to watch hack and slash movies it was entertaining. “That being said…”

    They should have cut that man with the heads, pointless.
    His time should been used for more Magatsu.
    If they really wanted to put Shira in this movie they should either kill him in the first fight or better, if they decided to copy his “end” from the manga, Magatsu could accompany Anotsu to Mount Takao to have him to fight with Shira and save Rin.
    Rin shouldn’t have falter to kill Anotsu, she should have let him go, to hear him promising to coming back worse and then Rin would kill him without a flinch.
