At last… the riveting, bloody, and ultra-stylish Lone Wolf and Cub series, together with the classic Shogun Assassin (all based on the perennially popular manga by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima) available together in one boxset, officially licenced from Toho, fully uncut, and freshly remastered.

Filled with memorable set pieces, iconic characters and violent action, this series more than lives up to its reputation as a pinnacle of Japanese exploitation cinema whose musings on the meaning of honour in a lawless world still resonate today.

In White Heaven In Hell alone, Ogami Ittō kills 150 people onscreen, the highest body count for a single character in a single film in cinema history. In America, the first two Lone Wolf instalments were re-edited into the legendary Shogun Assassin, the film that single-handedly created legions of new fans of Japanese action cinema upon its release.

Originally prosecuted as a video nasty in the 1980s, this hugely influential thrill-ride is presented here along with the original Lone Wolf and Cub series, gorgeously remastered in their original aspect ratio.
