Many secrets are revealed in Samurai Deeper Kyo, Volume 05, including the one most important to Kyo. This volume teaches you to stay on your guard because no one is who they seem.

The most interesting revelations are the relationship between the leader of the Iga Ninja and Ieyasu Tokugawa. But the true icing on the cake is how Benitora is involved in all of the mysteries.

Later in the volume, Kyo is reunited with some frenemies, the Four Emperors: Ajira, Shindara, Antera, and Bikar
Today’s post is on Samurai Deeper Kyo Volume 5 by Akimine Kamijo. It is the fifth in the series and you need to have read the previous volumes to get the story. The cover has Kyo, and Yukimura on it looking cool. There is strong language, sexuality, and lots of violence in this series.

We finally find out that Kyo/Kyoshiro has a scar on his back- Yuya's brother died in front of her and his killer had the same scar. We don't know which of these two are responsible for his death. We are currently in the Forest of Death, on our way to find Kyo's body.

Read in: September 2012, January 2013.

This volume was much more interesting to me. We learn where Demon Eyes Kyo's body is hidden. We meet another group of characters (gods) that plan to get to his body before Kyo/Kyoshira. Several more secrets are revealed, adding some new twists and levels to the story.
