Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The film was promoted as being director Takashi Miike's 100th film, but it isn't. Although it was at one time his 100th directing credit on IMDb, that list also includes several TV series, TV episodes, and segments of other films. According to some calculations, Miike has directed over 100 works, including music videos and short films, but (at the time of Blade of the Immortal's release) less than 90 were feature films.
