On his neverending journey, Zatoichi crosses paths with an old woman on an ancient bridge. Unintentionally causing her death, Zatoichi charges himself with the task of finding the old woman's daughter, Nishikigi, to give her the tragic news. The blind swordsman sets off to the town of Chosi. There, he finds the daughter working in a geisha house and a bond of fifty ryo has her trapped until it has been repaid. The town is ruled over by an ambitious boss, Mangoro, who has created and bullied the local fishermen into working for him. Zatoichi fails to notice the injustice around him as he attempts to soothe his own conscience, by caring for the dead woman's daughter. But when Mangoro snatches Nishikigi, the blind swordsman's hands are crippled. Now, unable to even hold his sword, Zatoichi has to overcome those who want him dead.

Zatoichi Movies - This list is to help me keep track of what I've seen. All these GC films involve Shintaro Katsu but they don't have #14 (rights in dispute) And is #26 really part of the series?
