Description
From Del Rey:

By the order of Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, ten ninja from the Iga and the Kouga clans must fight to the death in order to determine who will be the next Tokugawa Shogun, with the surviving clan ruling for the next thousand years. But Oboro of the Iga clan and Gennosuke of the Kouga clan have fallen deeply in love. Now these star-crossed lovers have been pitted against each other. Can their romance conquer a centuries-old rivalry? Or is their love destined to end in death?

Note: Won the Kodansha Manga Award in the category "Best General Manga" in 2004.

In my opinion it was right to keep it short. I agree with the comment of Zeidrich, although I would not call it awesome.
Interesting, quick paced, predictable.
Not at the level of Blade of the immortal, but still worth a read

Tragic

Gorey action story with tragic love. Quite enjoyable if not for the fact that the ending is oh-so depressing. Pretty fast paced fights, especially compared to other ninja battles coughnarutocough that span several chapters. You're not missing anything though with that. I was surprised by the amount of blood and graphic detail in the story. The ending was depressingly tragic in my opinion.
The art detail is amazing. Everything is given such a specific touch, it can get scary at times. The story is very interesting and had me hooked throughout. An interesting variety of ninjutsu, and character personalities as well.
A great read. Go for it if you're not offended by vast amounts of blood pouring from large open wounds.
