The one-armed, one-eyed swordsman of Japanese legend is back in this humorous, yet exciting action tale. Tange Sazen is one of Japan's most popular folk heroes, who despite being maimed has become one of the foremost fencers in the land. Risking his life to help others, he is always a powerful figure. In this new version of the legend, we have an excellent performance by noted actor. Toyokawa Etsushi as he brings a popular figure to life once again! Etsushi Toyokawa takes on the mantle of Tange, a Zatoichi-like samurai master who is missing an arm and an eye, but kicks butt nonetheless. Based on a Japanese newspaper serial printed originally in 1927.
