Description
Shinmen Takezo is destined to become the legendary sword-saint, Miyamoto Musashi--perhaps the most renowned samurai of all time. For now, Takezo is a cold-hearted killer, who will take on anyone in mortal combat to make a name for himself. This is the journey of a wild young brute who strives to reach enlightenment by way of the sword--fighting on the edge of death.

Great manga. I love it. connsider it recommended. I didn't rate it 10 'cause it is a bit slow. But thats my impression so don't let it get to u.

Though action is some of the core in this manga, it should be suitable for anyone above 12. However the nudity and the sex could be a problem (at least in the states. Even the upper part of a woman is considered 18+ there lol). 15+ shouldn't be a problem. I would love reading this when I was 12 though.

it's an amazing series, I managed to get the first volume and thought, "hey this might not be too bad." after the first few chapters i was totally hooked onto it, the story is amazing and it just keeps building into a grander and grander story involving many historical characters and to top that amazing character development. Inoue's attention to deal is amazing as well there is very little he leaves out. Altogether, if you like these kinda mangas then you're in for a real good treat with this one, so go out there and get it!

Superb; just like the book but with great personalizing/background of characters that were ignored in book.
