One of the most famous blind swordsman in the Japanese movie is Zatoichi. The blind swordsman with the cane sword has been in many movies since 1960s. According to wikipedia, a total of 26 films were made from 1962 to 1989. His unique sword drawing technique is one of the most interesting style ever.


And they are releasing another movie, "Zatoichi the last" this year.

Back to my story, I found a movie "Ichi", which has a blind swords girl, searching around for her father, can you guess who her father is, its Zatoichi...

Her sword style is the same as Zatoichi.

The best line from the movie.

Never disturb a blind girl with a cane sword

The storyline is the same as the Zatoichi movies, where she defends a town from bandits.
