Manji is a crass, violent samurai with a special ability: he cannot die. Cursed with immortality by the nun Yaobikuni as punishment for his ruthless deeds, he has grown weary of his ageless life. The only way to lift the curse is to slay 1,000 evil men. So Manji wanders Japan, shedding the blood of the wicked on his quest to finally die.
Manji is an amoral swordsman, who has been cursed with eternal life. He has grown tired of living with all the death he has created. He has no skills other then those of killing, thus he forms a plan to regain his mortality: he shall kill one hundred evil men for each good one he has killed. The old witch who afflicted Manji with immortality agrees to Manji's proposition and Manji is set on his path to kill one thousand evil men. On his journey he meets a young girl, Rin, who has her own vengeance to seek against the sword school whose members slaughtered Rin's family. Rin and Manji journey together, each hoping to find some kind of peace. In their way are many varied enemies. Rin and Manji are almost constantly under attack and must learn to live their lives, avoiding being consumed by revenge.
Manji, a recently-turned immortal swordsman, has sworn to kill a thousand villains to counterbalance the merciless and indiscriminate slaughter that ended with the death of his sister. To this end, he decides to travel with Rin, a young girl who reminds him of the sister he failed. She has sworn to take vengeance on the Itto-ryu, specifically their leader Anotsu; for the Itto-ryu are group of elite swordsmen who killed her parents and raped her mother in front of her. However; being immortal doesn’t guarantee victory: Manji’s skill and immortality will be tested to their limits...
