Float Left Float Right. Which of course means Manji must kill a lot of people before he can get to the one he actually wants. It also means a lot of one-on-one fights and a lot of one-on-I-lost-count-how-many fights.
Because Manji will do what he must to keep Rin safe, even when he realises that his immortality powers are starting to weaken. The supporting cast are all impressive to watch, especially an almost unrecognisable Chiaki Kuriyama Kill Bill, Battle Royale and there is usually an elegance in the way they fight each other, no matter how brutal the fight might be.
