The late Shintaro Katsu returns as the blind masseur in this particularly good third entry. It`s also important to series fans as Zatoichi almost marries his teacher`s sister (Mikiko Tsubouchi). The usual wrongdoers are punished. This series must win some kind of award for consistent quality. With Seizaburo Kawazu., Fujio Suga, Toyoko Takechi and Emiko Kondo. MASSEUR ICHI, THE FUGITIVE was next.
