39;t turn any heads for originality, the story is laid out for all to see.
Blade of the Immortal caps director Takashi Miike's directing career at 100 films over his decade-long career. It is quite the feat for a man who has really only released a handful internationally. The most notable of the bunch is '13 Assassins'. I reviewed that years ago and gave it a glowing (4 1/2 stars). Once again, Miike picks up the samurai sword to deliver a spastic, brutal, yet surprisingly deeply structured character story. Even if it won't turn any heads for originality, the story is laid out for all to see. Takuya Kimura is our hero. He hires himself to protect a child, but when things don't go as planned, he suffers what someone of his culture deems to be a fate worse than dying dishonorably: immortality and not being able to die at all. A beautiful black and white segment starts the film off with as much backstory as you need in a film like this. Once we jump into the present nearly 50 years later, the story for him becomes a 'same crap, different day' kind of routine.
No left or right turns.
He meets little Rin played by Hana Sugisaki. Her fervor in the film and committed performance really sells the silence of it all. Kimura's portrayal of Manji is one of reluctance and dark humor. It's a great combo and offered a bit more levity to the proceedings than I thought there would be in a movie about hacking and slashing its way from beginning to end. The action is fierce and full of sword play from start to finish. With the added relationship to the comic/anime, Blade of the Immortal succeeds both when dialogue slows down the action and when swords cling and clang to pick up the pace. It's as if each character we meet and dispose of leads to a bigger and badder villain. The added bonus comes from the relationship the two main characters build. However, I retreat back to my comment about the movie's uniqueness. It's fairly straight forward. No left or right turns. No surprises. With a run time of 140 minutes, it can get quite taxing to watch fight after fight. Miike develops and defines the characters we see on screen and expertly shoots the action with a still camera from tight angles. The sound mixing wasn't perfect, but the straight forward story offers you everything you need to get through Blade of the Immortal with a smile on your face. Catching a Takashi Miike film at the Melbourne International Film Festival can be a real treat, even when you've found out the Cult Japanese Filmmaker has actually made a 'Great Film'. Blade of the Immortal' an adaptation of Hiroaki Samura's manga series is possibly a perfect fit for Miike, combing the best of his Jidai-geki tribute material and plenty of chanbara sword slashing, this film sets Miike right where he belongs. The film is in itself a tales of atonement and revenge taking it's cues from the likes of 'Unforgiven', 'Leon: The Professional' and this year's 'Logan' all added to the classic Japanese Edo period, it's an electric film from start to finish full of all out sword fights, blood splashes and the deeper meaning of what it means to face the consequences of one's actions as well as living for a greater meaning than just oneself. I can't recommend this film more than enough, it's defienitely one of Miike's best in years, even if you've never seen one of his film's beforehand.
Sword Art Online is a Japanese light novel series written by Reki Kawahara with accompanying illustrations drawn by abec. The series takes place in the near-future and focuses on various virtual reality MMORPG worlds. ASCII Media Works began publishing the novels on April 10, 2009 under their Dengeki Bunko imprint. Russia. With more than 16 million copies in print worldwide, there are future plans for publications in Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Vietnam and others. Kawahara also began writing a parallel series of light novels titled Sword Art Online: Progressive, a spin-off that focuses on the clearing of Aincrad, unlike the Aincrad stories of the main series. As of June 10, 2021, eight volumes have been published as part of the Progressive series. In addition to the original storyline of Sword Art Online and Sword Art Online: Progressive, Kawahara has also written and published Sword Art Online side stories. Accel World, have been sold at Comitia, Dengeki Bunko's Fair and have come along with the limited edition Blu-Ray/DVD Sword Art Online compilation volumes.
However, all of the art in the Material Editions is drawn by Kawahara himself.
Before Sword Art Online was published, Kawahara had posted Sword Art Online novels on his website and there are still a few side stories on Sword Art Online, although the original novels have been removed. In addition, Kawahara has published a side story of Sword Art Online in one of his other works, Accel World. In the tenth volume of Accel World, there is a chapter where it depicts a cross over between Sword Art Online and Accel World. Several of the side stories that he has released are in a collection called the Sword Art Online Material Edition, sold at the Comitia dōjinshi-selling event, which range from novels to manga. However, all of the art in the Material Editions is drawn by Kawahara himself. Aside from the light novels written by Kawahara, there are also two spin-offs written by other authors with supervision by him. The first one is Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online series written by Keiichi Sigsawa and illustrated by Kouhaku Kuroboshi, while the other is Sword Art Online Alternative: Clover's Regret, written by Watase Souichirou and illustrated by Ginta. While both of these series take place in the same world as the main series written by Kawahara, they each feature different characters as the focus compared to the main series.
