This is a guro book featuring lots of violence and gore, including some cannibalism. Itís not hentai, but it does have some sex thrown in here and there, mostly rape. Itís set in feudal japan and its central character is an insane sadistic princess with a elite unit of special ďhairĒ ninjas. She gets reckless and draws the attention of the Shogun which leads to a huge clash. Fun book with some grim humor, very graphic and has some disgusting stuff so not for the faint of heart. Some of the contents include torture, lobotomies, cannibalism, warfare, ninja combat, and a ďHellĒ amusement park. Featuring guest appearances by Jesus, and a clan of ninja descended from Moses!

Contains the oneshot Iwa and Izaemon
The fascination with body and grotesqueness taken to extreme would be the best words to describe this little one shot. Basically a man has an ugly wife, he then stumbles on a group of people who also have ugly wives and then they show off to each others

A Violent, Humorous World Built (and blown up) in Two Volumes   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Oddly enough, these volumes use the absurdities (domesticated hair, hell amusement park, hole epidemics, etc.) to build a massive biomechanical vision of Edo Japan. The mangaka's constant, creative use of their premises, combined with appropriate levels of gore and violence, make this is certainly a cut above similar offerings in its genre.

Mini Review of Sorts   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

I thought this was absolutely hilarious; it contains somewhat dark, twisted humor that can make one go "WTF?" (and yes, in a good way. Okay, to me, at least). The various scenarios were unpredictable, and may even be outrageous to some. Read this with an open mind, and you may just enjoy this rollercoaster ride.

Note what Brolen says about Vol. 2: "This one is full of bizzare things and horror elements, as well as some funny cultural references and off the wall humor. Itís set in the Edo period just like the first book but itís not really a sequel. The title is actually Koro Koro Soushi - Ooedo muzan juusanku. The subtitle translates into 13 Cruel Sufferings of Great Edo. Itís basically a collection of mini stories, but there are some tie ins, and characters cross paths. There is a storyline near the end that brings a lot of the characters from the previous chapters together. Themes include cursed prostitutes, killer tailor assasins, an epic battle of patches and holes (You got that right.), and even a great pinnochio spoof. Just like the first one, I have worked on the rest of the it, but not the first chapter."
