Description
Dying in childbirth, Yuki's mother impresses upon a friend the importance of imparting to her infant daughter the necessity of her revenge--the grudge that she could no longer carry, but which she passed to her daughter. The friend agrees to do so, and Yuki ("snow," so named for her snow-white skin) is trained to become the instrument of her mother's vengenace.
Twenty years later, Yuki is a skilled assassin. For the price of 1,000 yen she will perform murderous miracles, often proceeding through trickery, deceit, and the assumption that as a woman she poses as little threat to the criminals she is often dispatching.

Pulp Manga   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

Sex, violence, and revenge: the right ingredients to make up a classic pulp manga of the 1970's. Unfortunately, the ratio of ingredients doesn't come out quite right in Lady Snowblood, and you're left with a solid revenge tale being overshadowed by excessive sexploitation. I can't help but wish that Koike had spent more time endearing Lady Snowblood to the audience and less time trying to figure out how to force Yuki into yet another lesbian encounter.

This manga is interesting, the story is good and the art is at least decent with a nice attention to detail. The problem is that it never really gets interesting, all the elements are there, it just somehow doesn't come together as nice as it could have.
