Zatoichi vols. 22-24Blu-ray Disc - 2002 | Japanese
22. It's East meets East when one of Japan's action idols crosses paths with an iconic kung-fu hero from Hong Kong. While traveling the countryside, Zatoichi comes across Wang Kang, a Chinese swordsman protecting a brutally orphaned young child. Despite the language barrier, the men forge a friendship, until enemies plant seeds of distrust to pit the two master martial artists against each other. 23. Zatoichi comes across a pregnant woman dying from sword wounds and helps deliver her baby. Her final request to him: take the boy to see his father. From here, the film evolves into one of the wilder rides in the Zatochi series, including such quirky touches as a mysterious child who follows Ichi and pelts him with rocks, monkey performances, and an unexpectedly comic take on the ronin challenger. 24. When Zatoichi accidentally causes the death of an elderly woman, he sets out to find her daughter. But when he finds the daughter worked as a forced servant in a geisha house, the blind swordsman faces his most desperate battle yet as he fights to free her.
