Blade of the Immortal, Chapter 204: Not Knowing Life, How Can One Know Death?
We're back with another stirring chapter of Blade of the Immortal now. The fight between Anotsu and Manji reaches its end, along with the Winter War. Nobody has survived unscathed, but Anotsu holds on to his dreams to the last moment...except he forgot something that Rin is going to remind him of. The Immortal Hundred Man Killer makes a final vow...and then the fire is extinguished. The finale of Rin's quest is here. Forgiveness and revenge come together one final time.

Edit: replaced the double page on 201-202, and a big thanks to the help on that from Footnote
Scanlator note here...this is probably one of the finest examples of Hiroaki Samura's writing in the series. Some may remember earlier in the series when Anotsu scorns the very idea of leaving your ideals and dreams to your children, and to hear him speak differently here drives in how utterly broken he is by these events. One of the final scenes (You'll know it when you see it) is utterly poignant and told entirely without dialogue before the flashbacks, and Anotsu's changing facial expressions are incredible, saying more than dialogue ever could.
There's only two chapters left, so we wait for Other Side of Sky to deliver them....and then BOTI will be over at last, and then we're on to Other Side of Sky's next project...in fact, because I'm feeling like letting you guys in on it?
We're gonna be teaming up with an old friend here...Other Side of sky will be translating. We have the raws and are waiting for the ones past volume 2 to be scanned..
Getting ready, kids, because Shin Mazinger Zero is coming!
Now, please scroll down and remember we're trying to seek translators and more staff for new projects as well!
