Tokyo Shock just released vol. 1 recently. Stars Henry Sanada. Is this any good, and is it a tv series? Any info on its original release or broadcast date?

Actually I think it stars Ken Watanabe from Batman Begins and The Last Samurai. It is a 90s TV show from Japan. Here is the write up on the DVD box:
His name is Baian, professional acupuncturist and assassin. A needle deftly insertedinto the human body can bring relief and healing. For the defense of justice and honor - and for the right price – it can also bring instant death! Based on the stories by Shotaro Ikenami, Baian the Assassin features tales of murder and deceit, jealousy and revenge, all set in the backdrop of corrupt samurai lords, ruthless merchant princes, fawning geisha, and deadly ninja.
There will be 4 volumes in total. I haven't seen anything about it being broadcast in the states anytime soon.
