I think this was 21 or 22 Volumes, I stayed up all night last night reading my friends copy after finishing Shina Dark.

This is probably one of the most interesting Manga's Ive read in the past few years.

I never knew the rise of Communism was called the Cultural Revolution. I love the fact that the disarming of the population and destruction of their culture is seen as a necessity to create a new government.

It is incredible to read between the lines, and see the world as this author shows us....more

Komik yang didalamnya banyak bicara sejarah perkembangan ilmu beladiri dari Jepang hingga Cina. Berawal dari Karate yang dipelajari di Jepang, Kenji sampai memerlukan untuk berkelanan ke Cina untuk bisa mendalami ilmu beladiri. Di Cina, Kenji menemukan dan belajar banyak aliran beladiri, yang tiap daerah dan suku terkadang menyimpan ilmu beladiri yang unik.

Kesan yang paling mendalam adalah ketika Kenji menemukan orang yang mumpuni dengan belajar satu jurus saja. Dengan jurus yang sama namun teru...more

Recommends it for: everybody who loves manga & martial arts
Gw udh baca, ngoleksi, dan suka sm manga ini dari kelas 6 SD! Plus dari kecil emang udh gila bgt sm yg namanya martial arts. Uniknya dlm manga ini, kungfunya bukan fiksi - Kungfu Delapan Mata Angin memang ada beneran! Lie Syo Bun (Lie Syu Wen) juga memang ada beneran dan legenda satu pukulan mematikan itu nyata terjadi! Selain itu beladiri lain kyk Daito-ryu Aiki-jutsu, Shotokan Karate, Kungfu Tolo 6 & 7 bintang, dll juga sangat menarik utk diikuti. Sayang ending-nya kurang greget.

This is the best martial art comic series I have ever read. The graphic was excellent, the plot was believable, and most importantly the martial arts are comprehensive. I read this when I was really crazy about martial arts. I am not ashamed to admit that I even tried to practice some of the movements described in the book. I dont remember finding "Dont Try This At Home" sign anyway :-)

If I had to choose only one comic series, this would definitely be the one!

Kisah perjalanan seorang bocah yang sangat menyukai bela diri serta filsafat dan pengajaran yang ada di dalamnya. Dikisahkan Kenji, sang tokoh utama, pergi menjelajah ke Hongkong, Taiwan dan Cina daratan demi mencari kakek tercinta-nya, disamping mencari apa arti di balik semua bela diri, terutama Kungfu Delapan Mata Angin (Baijiquan) yang selama ini telah ia pelajari.

Salah satu dari sedikit komik yang harus dibaca. Bravo buat Ryuchi Matsuda :D

komik bela diri yg pertama gw baca.. n ternyata sampai skrg slalu jd komik favorit gw.. ^^

bukan cm gambar yg jd penarikny, tp alur cerita n filosofi yg tertanam di dalamny. mengajarkan seseorang untuk tdk cepat menyerah dan teguh pd pendirianny. jk salah, mengakulah salah. tp jk benar, pertahankanlah itu sampai kapan pun. bukan mengajarkan egois, tp ad kalany prinsip qt g bisa dganggu gugat oleh siapa pun..

Dulu suka banget baca komik Kenji ini, sepertinya diambil dari cerita nyata pengarang, Ryuchi Matsuda. Petualangan belajar Kungfu Delapan Mata Angin dari kakeknya ketika masih di Jepang, hingga ia harus pergi ke dataran Cina untuk mencari kakeknya yang telah pergi saat Kenji masih kecil.
Komik ini dulu sering kubaca berulang-ulang, jadi masih ingat detil ceritanya hingga kini.

That was a long series! Well, not the longest, I admit. Quite informative, albeit a bit childish. Overall, your typical shounen manga with some actual martial arts history thrown in. Art is not the best I've seen (but I've seen much worse!). I do prefer the old school style of it though. Story isn't that impressive, predictive maybe but I can't say it's boring.

seru. ending nya bagus aja. paling tidak kasih jawaban atas nasib musuh terbesarnya. gak nggantung. setelah komik ini, keluar game virtua fighter yang jagonya juga punya jurus-jurus yang ada di kenji ini.

Manga kedua yang kubaca, dan sangat mengesankan. Benar-benar menarik, dari sisi gambar, alur cerita maupun pesan moral. Tidak pernah merasa bosan membaca berkali-kali.
