The Champions take a stab at reviewing Takashi Miike’s live-action adaptation of Hiroaki Samura’s legendary revenge comic, Blade of the Immortal. Miike is well-known for films such as 13 Assassins and Ichi the Killer, and is not one to shy away from disturbing violence. So, hypothetically, Miike seems to be the perfect pick for bringing Manji and Rin’s battles to the big screen. Does Miike succeed in making the Champions beg for more? Or are they cut down by a disappointing take on a beloved series? Listen and find out!
