At the dawn of the 17th century, at the end of the era of civil wars, in a world of chaos, the epic Battle of Sekigahara was joined.

One man emerged from the largest battle ever fought on Japanese soil; a terrible warrior of unspeakable power, he was nicknamed 'the unconquerable.'

Kyoshiro is a peaceful medicine peddler who harbors the soul of an assassin. He accompanies a young bounty hunter across Japan in search of a murderer and on a quest to discover the terrible secret of his own identity.

Kyoshiro is boring. When you meet Kyo is when things start to get really good. Read up to the second encounter before you judge this series.

hmm, how should i explain this... this manga is very good in earlier chapter, but become boring in lat chapter. too many repeated action and the storyline are quite monotome. however, i still read it to the end smile. at least the ending are fine, you must read it.
it catchy in first and you want to read it to the end, but you'll also not very satisfied with it.

The very first shonen that I completely read and love.
The main character is a badass anti hero at first but as the story progresses he develops appreciation for friendship and love.

Although there are some long fights that took 3O chapters or more of this manga but I don't see anything wrong with it since it's a shonen manga.
Anyway I gave this manga 10 because I love Kyo and Yuya's subtle romance and the side characters that made this manga worth the read.

Remarkable piece of work! Samurai story about friendship, finding the truth and strength, and the true meaning of happiness. There is plenty of enthralling and really beautiful sentences coming from the characters while they're fighting in order to find the true meaning and purpose of their lives. There are many characters, but all of them will eventually capture your attention, maybe even heart. They are so warm, funny and just human! You can find all of your flaws in them, and mature together with them. Even if they were at first antagonists and bad guys, they are not the kind of bad guys you hate until the very end, but you come to emphatize with them and possibly even like them as the story flows, and in their last moments when you see that they weren't always evil, instead, they were gentle and wanted to change the world, but lost themselves in the process and ended up corrupted, in the end, you forgive them all so there isn't anyone to hate anymore smile
The most magnificient thing is the bond between Kyo and Kyoshiro, and Yuya. Kyoshiro who is gentle, protective and warm person, but also unstable and likely to do something wrong while trying to help, and Kyo who is cold, wild, and aloof, seems to actually be quite wise, witty and rational when it comes to his comrades and even enemies. Yuya's and Kyo's bond is something that will keep us, girls tense all the time, just have to read the manga till the very end. One thing I must say, and I know that there are others who don't agree with me, cause it's maybe clichéd, but this is the manga with one of the most beautiful and heart-warming ending I've ever read. So, please, enjoy it smile
(And pay special attention to Hotaru and Akira, really two hilarious guys that will make you laugh to tears)

first few manga is not very captivating.... just so-so....
but quite good to follow, then when it reach 11 and up volume, become more and more interesting,
and I cant stop read it! especially when it reach 20 volume and up....
one good point is, the ending is good! I love the last chapter! a story without word... but full of meaning.
Good Job Kamijyo Akiine-san!! >.<!!
