Beautiful but not that great a story

The art is really something. I love the way Samura-sensei frames the deathblows with Japanese style ornaments and flowers. It's really gorgeous. If I could afford it, I would buy the manga simply for the artwork.

Few gripes I have with the manga:
First of all, Rin is really not my kind of girl. I know she's supposed to be weak and all but I find her actions really stupid and bordering on pathetic.

Second, I don't like how Dark Horse flipped the whole thing. What's the point in cutting it all up and sticking it back in the same order? They may as well have just done it right to left like everyone else. I have spotted some inconsistencies as a result of this. And it's probably why the books cost so much.

Which bring me on to the third gripe.

Haven't been this obsessed with a manga in a long time. smile

Hiroaki Samura has an obvious background in classic art and figure drawing... It makes reading this manga a pleasure at every panel.
The setting of Fuedal Japan has been reworked as a bright and honorless fashion that is unique to the genre, and there is some unparalleled character development through the course of this series.

The content speaks for it with gore and violence, but this is an incredibly mature read in themes and direction alone.
I recommend it. smile

I love everything in this manga and I am generally very picky. Dialogues are deep and amusing, art is unique. The story is original (in some volumes it got a little redundant). The Characters are interesting and deeply human.If you like martial arts comics this is a must read.

Awesome is a good description. Artwork is stunningly addictive and there is no room for boredom between the covers. A must read for action junkies.

Very cool. The art is good, the story is pretty cool, and the fights are also nice. But I still can't give it a full rating, the story just lacks something to the top mangas. But this is still a very good manga. Read it.

Saw 20 is out, but I'm at v19. Heard it's going to end soon but the story is still in the middle of somewhere. Manji excercise his romance of samurai by bearing every sort of brutal attacks on his body. While Rin seems to be growing up alot despite of still being weak. Wonder where would their journey end. The introduction of another pair of wanderers should be bring some impact on them.
Pretty good drawings as usual, stylish sketches. Not many authors are drawing like this. The degree of violence / gore is pretty high.
