Highlander – The Search for Vengeance

Finally! An anime based on the Highlander franchise. Wanna bet it’s a lot better than Highlander 5: The Source? Directed by one of my favorite directors, the director of the original Ninja Scroll and Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust himself: Mr. Yoshiaki Kawajiri.


Colin MacLeod, the immortal Scottish Highlander, travels with the druid ghost Amergan seeking Marcus Octavius, who killed Colin’s lover centuries ago on the Celtic plains. With Marcus ruling in a dominant fortress that towers over a virus-infected, water-submerged New York, will MacLeod help the oppressed freedom fighters or seek vengeance for his lover’s death?
