Blade of the Immortal (2017) (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Miike Takashi (Director)
| Fukushi Sota
| Sugisaki Hana
Kimura Takuya takes the starring role of a cursed samurai in Miike Takashi's epic action-packed adaptation of Samura Hiroaki's classic manga series Blade of the Immortal. In his first period role since 2006's Love and Honor, Kimura plays Manji, a skilled samurai who once murdered 100 men in service of a corrupt warlord. After discovering the true nature of his lord and witnessing his sister's death, Manji vows to kill 1000 evil men to atone for his sins. He begins his mission with nary a thought for his own well-being, accruing wound after wound, until he meets a mysterious old woman who grants him immortality.
Award-winning teen actress Sugisaka Hana (Her Love Boils Bathwater) co-stars as Asano Rin, a young girl whose parents' death Manji pledges to help avenge. Fukushi Shota (As the Gods Will) takes on his first antagonist role as Anotsu Kagehisa, the killer of Rin's father and the leader of a powerful and ruthless dojo. Blade of the Immortal's all-star cast also includes Ichihara Hayato (Yakuza Apocalypse) as cold-blooded killer Shira, Toda Erika (Death Note: Light Up The New World) as powerful swordswoman Otono-Tachibana Makie, Ichikawa Ebizo (Over Your Dead Body) as immortal swordsman Shizuma Eiku, Kuriyama Chiaki (Library Wars) as assassin Hyakurin, as well as Yamazaki Tsutomu (Departures), Kitamura Kazuki (Parasyte), Tanaka Min (47 Ronin) and Mitsushima Shinnosuke (11.25 The Day Mishima Chose His Own Fate).
Mumon: The Land of Stealth (Blu-ray) (Memorial Box) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region A
| Chinen Yuri
| Ishihara Satomi
| Nakamura Yoshihiro (Director)
Arashi's Ohno Satoshi makes his period film debut as a Sengoku-era ninja in Mumon: The Land of Stealth, the live-action adaptation of Wada Ryo's novel Shinobi no Kuni. The film reteams Ohno with director Nakamura Yoshihiro six years after Kaibutsu-Kun. Mumon: The Land of Stealth revolves around the battle between the storied ninjas of Iga Province and Oda Nobunaga's forces in the late 16th century. In 1579, Oda Nobunaga's son Oda Nobukatsu led an army of 8,000 in an attack against the Iga, but the outnumbered ninja clan successfully repelled Oda's army with their superior fighting skills and battlefield prowess.
Ohno takes on the fictional role of Mumon, a seemingly lazy and unmotivated ninja who actually harbors great powers that are unleashed in times of battle. Hey! Say! JUMP member Chinen Yuri (The Gold Medal Man) plays Oda Nobukatsu. The period action epic also co-stars Ishihara Satomi, Suzuki Ryohei, Kunimura Jun and Iseya Yusuke.
This edition comes with a 36-page booklet, a shuriken sticker set and three bonus discs of special features, including TV special, cast talk, samurai vs. shinobi battle, interviews, deleted scenes, making documentary, stage greetings and visual commentary.
Gintama (2017) (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Hashimoto Kanna
| Okada Masaki
| Domoto Tsuyoshi
Sorachi Hideaki's best-selling sci-fi samurai manga series Gintama has been adapted into a live-action film! Set in an alternate-world late Edo period Japan that has been conquered by aliens, the delightfully odd and entertaining blockbuster stars Oguri Shun (Lupin the Third) in the leading role of Sakata Gintoki, an eccentric silver-haired samurai who once fought in the battle against the alien invasion. After the fall of the shogun government, Gintoki settled down into a layabout life running the Yorozuya odd-job business. Directed by Fukuda Yuichi who previously collaborated with Oguri on HK: Hentai Kamen, Gintama is chockfull of in-jokes and tongue-in-cheek references that will tickle anime and manga fans.
Okada Masaki co-stars as Gintoki's childhood friend Katsura Kotaro who is part of the moderate underground resistance, while KinKi Kids' Domoto Tsuyoshi is antagonist Takasugi Shinsuke, a former comrade-in-arm who has turned radical. Other key characters include Suda Masaki and Hashimoto Kanna as Gintoki's Yorozuya partners Shimura Shinpachi and Kagura, Nagasawa Masami as Shinpachi's sister Tae, and Yagira Yuya, Yoshizawa Ryo and Nakamura Kankuro as members of the Shinsengumi police unit. Katsura's pet Elizabeth and Kagura's pet Sadaharu are also duly represented in the film in animal suit and CGI form.
Stories spread around town of a serial killer with a powerful sword that has a life of its own. Even Katsura (Okada Masaki) disappears after a run-in with this brutal swordsman, much to the concern of the Yorozuya team. Meanwhile, Gintoki (Oguri Shun) gets hired by the Murata siblings, swordsmiths Tetsuya (Yasuda Ken) and Tetsuko (Hayami Akari), to recover a missing sword, and a large mysterious ship suddenly docks in town.
