Based on the first Nemuri Kyoshiro novel by Shibata Renzaburo, “Journal of an Outlaw” parts 1 and 2 introduce the master of the Full Moon Cut to the silver screen. Megastar Tsuruta Koji takes the lead as the nihilistic swordsman with his own unique set of principles and amorality. Set during the reign of Shogun Ienari (1840’s), the 11th Tokugawa shogun Kyoshiro unravels the mystery of his birth, and in the third film, saves Edo from a conspiracy between a greedy merchant and an international smuggler. These three films set the standard for one of Japan’s most popular samurai figures, who was featured in 14 more blockbuster movies.
