The Tale of Zatoichi Continues (1962)


The Tale of Zatoichi Continues takes place a year after the first film (there are 26 films in the series).  Zatoichi gets mixed up in affairs through no fault of his own.  As usual the blind masseur gets involved with a woman as well.   At 72 minutes in length it is a fun movie to watch. Not as epic as the first film, but it definitely helps progress the character along.
