The "Trail" Runs Cold

"Judged on its owm merits, this is an excellent Samurai film, a perfect mix of arterial sprays and pathos than fans of the genre come to expect. Having said that, I came away disappointed. Why? No closure.
These films were marketed by Animeigo as the Mikogami "Trilogy", but this is not a trilogy. This is a series of films that apparently stopped getting made after the third installment. I assumed that this film was going to tie up all the loose ends, and that the third and final villian would meet a grand and glorious death. I was wrong.
While I would still recommend these excellent and highly entertaining films, you should know before proceeding that you'll never get to see the conclusion. It was never made."
