Zatoichi vols. 7-9Blu-ray Disc - 2002 | Japanese
7. As the fireworks explode overhead, the blood runs under foot. Zatoichi is provoked into a fury of sword slinging by a disreputable gang leader trying to oust a rival, good-natured boss. A houseguest of the peaceful Bunkichi boss, Ichi attempts to help his gracious host fight the greedy boss Yasugoro, but as a fugitive, Ichiʼs honorable host must ask the blind swordsman to leave. With Ichi temporarily out of the way, Yasugoro makes his bloody move. But being a man of fairness and equality, Zatoichi makes sure Yasugoro gets what he deserves in the end. 8. While on the road, Zatoichi befriends a young mother right before she is savagely murdered. Promising her that he will hand over her baby to its father, the blind masseur embarks on an adventure both sentimental and beset by perilous action. This eighth Zatoichi feature is an excellent showcase for star Shintaro Katsu, who evinces an extraordinary physical and emotional range. 9. While corrupt bosses exploit hard-working merchants preparing for a New Yearʼs celebration, Zatoichi dispenses justice with the edge of his cane sword.
