In an unknown country closed off from the outside world for well over 500 years,
the ruling dictatorship enlists the help of the Takemikazuchi family, a clan of
skilled assassins who sought asylum from their nation years ago. The most highly
trained member of the family is Princess Yuki, killing dissidents who attempt to
thwart the ruling body. One day, Yuki discovers a dark secret that changes her
life forever: her mother may have been killed by her own leader, a member of her
adopted nation’s ruling class.
Soon, Yuki is fighting for her life, enlisting help from the most unlikely of
allies – a rebel named Takashi – while her own family attempts to hunt her down.
A wild ride into a dark, apocalyptic future, where law is upheld with the power
of the samurai sword, Princess Blade is a stylish and spectacular ride
featuring some of the most mind-blowing fighting and special effects sequences
