Hiroaki Samura has written one of the finest manga ever. His art and ability to display action is unmatched, and no one has been able to craft so many engaging, complex characters (that end up stealing protagonism from the main characters). It's a shame that it ended, but it does so in such an amazing way that does this flawless title justice. A must read for everyone.

I have mixed feelings about this manga. I picked it up, not knowing what to expect, but I found the story interesting and addicting. For some reason, it really reminded me of Samurai Deeper Kyo, so I continued reading. I continued reading even when I questioned some of the content in the story; some of it is just so violent and nasty that I found myself revolted, but intrigued.

The art isn't bad. I actually like it, except that some of the scenes are a little shocking to me. But reading this manga practically prepared me for every other mature seinen I've read since. I mean, there are plenty of other gory mangas out there and the few that I've delved in are nothing compared to this one.

This manga isn't bad. It's actually quite good. But the maturity level of this manga is a lot higher than your average shounen. That's why it's seinen. I did enjoy reading through parts of this series, but I'll probably never be able to pick up this manga-ka's other works, especially Bradherley no Basha.

A definite must-read. The art is AMAZING, really beautiful in a unique, realistic way... and it's just got this authentic, deep rich feel to it. The plot is so fascinating and full of twists and turns, and complete with battles, gore (but not like disgusting gore)... I think the characters are so well-drawn and written too. I usually don't like seinen stuff but this one just drew me in from the minute I read the first chapter.

An interesting storyline and Hiroaki's unusual drawing style (also author of CAT, I believe) blend in this samurai-era manga.

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.

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.

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.
