Description
Gabimaru the Empty, a former ninja assassin known feared as a heartless husk of a man, spends his days on death row wondering when an executioner skilled enough to so much as harm him will arrive, as he thinks nothing of seeing an end to his meaningless existence... Or so he thought. Then the lady executioner, Asaemon the Beheader, rekindles his hope with an astounding proposition. If he ever wishes to see his beloved wife again, he is, under the auspices of the shogunate, to embark on a perilous voyage to the mysterious mystic island said to house the elixir of immortality. Should he be the one among many rival death-row fiends and scoundrels to find the elixir, he'll earn a full exoneration, and, more importantly, a chance at an ordinary married life with the light of his life--the woman who made the world seem not so ugly. What awaits them is a journey like no other.

This story pretends to be a Seinen but it's themes and concepts are shallow enough to stay true to the Shounen tag that it wears. Makes reading this work feel very awkward for those wanting a gritty magical/historical ninja/samurai fusion story. It's still decent and it has its moments, but I've rolled my eyes a few too many times to really give this story top marks.

Really too early to tell to give a very accurate assessment. Overall a great read so far for the younger audience that wants a borderline Seinen.
