No! I am disappointed with what happened to Abe, given all his twisted perversions with his female retainer/whores and utter disrespect to the way of the warrior.

Volume 21 sets the final details in the stage for the final showdown between the full Yagyu force and The Lone Wolf and Cub. There will be no more filler stories, no more unrelated chapte

Starting with an inadvertently comical chapter in which the ronin turns out to be unconquerable even in his sleep, followed by a rather tacky section with a few too many bare-breasted junkie warrior women getting gorily taken down, this makes a surprising move into properly powerful territory as Ogami and Daigoro prepare for their approaching date with death.

Itto just wont die, will he?!!
Got really scared when they tried to kill him while he was asleep.
Now we're starting to have some idea of how much gold he made and what is he doing with it all.
