Blade of the Immortal
Kidnapped and bound by three Itto_ryu_ warriors, Rin is unable to warn her bodyguard Manji, the immortal swordsman, that he's heading into a trap. To make matters worse, the Itto_-ryu_ possess a large dose of kessen-satsu, the only poison known to damage Manji's blood and severely cripple his regenerative abilities. And is Mugai-_ryu _assassin Giichi following Manji in order to help rescue Rin or will he just stick around long enough to finish off any survivors?
