    Blade of the Immortal

    Checked out volume #1 of this at a comic shop over the weekend. The premise sounds awesome, it features some seriously cool violence and I was loving the art style. Before I jump in and start buying volumes though, has the series been released in it's entirety? I don't want to make the same...

    Years and years back, I remember catching a scene of an anime film on cable TV which I think was Fist of the North Star. In this paticular bit, all I remember was a 50ft giant walking through a valley whilst being attacked by hundreds and hundreds of Ninjas. It was hilarious. Is this...
