The anime adaptation of Hiroaki Samura’s Blade of the Immortal manga has been exclusive to Amazon Prime Video since its debut… until now! A new key visual, which you can see above, has debuted to celebrate the series’ next destination: Japanese TV.

Blade of the Immortal is set to make its broadcast debut in Japan on Tokyo MX and Mainichi Broadcasting System this April.

Here’s how Amazon describes the story:

Edo, an era of warriors. There lived an immortal man, the Slayer of Hundreds, ‘Manji.’ He meets Rin, who has sworn vengeance for her parents. Rin’s grudge is against a group of swordmasters – Ittou-ryu. She asks Manji to be her bodyguard on her journey. He refuses, but then sees his late sister in Rin. So began the violent struggle that would bring even the immortal Manji to his knees.
