Hooooo doggy! The tension is getting so thick, a dotanuki wielded by the strongest samurai would have a hard time cutting through it! Just two more volumes left until one of the world's most classic pieces of comic-book literature reaches its exciting and emotional conclusion. Two swords remain planted in the ground, awaiting the final duel between the conniving Retsudo an ...more

The penultimate volume is a grand showdown between the Yagyu Grass, an elite shinobi branch of the clan and The Lone Wolf and Cub! The volume ends in a very explosive manner, it is unstoppable until the very last page.

Meanwhile, the cunning and intelligence of Retsudo made the shogun himself trust him again in a brilliant but simple deception. Retsudo is a desperate old man. Though we can see here that he is not afraid of his death. What Retsudo wanted is to rebuild the clan and restart again. A

Der Vorabend des Kampfes

"To Protect and Defend"
Wieder eine schöne Geschichte um Daigoro, der den Geist seines Vaters geerbt hat und den Ort des Zweikampfs, mit Schwertern markiert, beschützt.

"For Whom to Die"
Das Gras beschützt den Gärtner: Mit Hilfe seiner Shinobi schafft es Retsudo, sogar den Shogun persönlich von seiner Treue zu überzeugen. Ein sehr beeindruckendes zweiseitiges Bild der in der Decke versteckten Ninjas krönt diese Geschichte mit einem Ah!-Moment, und auch der Schluss der Geschi

This whole series really is a masterpiece. The penultimate volume was a reminder of all the treasures found in this series: a ticket to Edo-period Japan, epic fights, political intrigue, social commentary on class, death, being a warrior, being a child, and honor. I highly recommend this series for anyone interested in the above. Amazing.

Tough!!!! so much toughness!!!
The Kusa are an organization that appear since the start of the story and I've loved them. To see them find their fate like that is very tough.

Now it leaves me with the last volume, with heavy boots I'm reading it right now.
