I watched the live action years ago, it was great, I even still listen to it's soundtrack.

The manga.... is even better, and yes, not for the faint hearted.

Bad, real bad things happened in this manga, but successfully stomach them and you will be presented with epicness.

A pretty gruesome series. It is not so much the gore that makes it different compared to other violent series, but the specific acts of violence that are perpetrated by the characters in this manga. Without giving too much away, right from the get go you see a level a violence that is rarely ever portrayed in manga.

This manga is a must for every fan of the chanbara and good dramas. The characters have depth, the violence is very gritty and no gratuitous sex scenes in sight (hello Kazuo Koike) just good old storytelling.
The art is also a lot better then it seems at first and the author is very good at conveying movement and facial expressions. I further suggest Azumi 2 and Hey ! Ryouma for future scanlations. And read Berserk because why not.

This is definitely one of my favorites. Azumi reminded me of Tezuka Osamu's seinen work because the plot is fast-paced and jam-packed and there are many plot twists. The first 28 volumes are especially superb. It was hard to stop while reading during these volumes. The characters are unforgettable, the combat scenes are exhilarating, and the themes are complex. I can honestly say I fell in love with many of the characters of this series. I'm surprised this title isn't as popular as the leading seinen manga series. Please read this at once.
