Today’s post is on Samurai Deeper Kyo volume 12 by Akimine Kamijyo and is published by Tokyopop. As it is the 11th in the series you need to have read the previous volumes to understand the story. The cover has Kyo in the background with Benitora and Sasuke looking cool in the front. The intended reader is someone likes manga, action story, and developing relationships; given the nature of this series should older teen and adult. There is language, no sex, and lots of violence in this volume. ...more
Kyo and Shinrei battle and Muramasa steps in to finish it. Because he is already close to death, the battle is hard on him and Kyo is able to step back into the fight. However, Yuya is forced to swallow a Waterwyrm and in 60 days it will devour her heart. Unless Kyo defeats the Mibu, Shinrei will not halt the process. He then disappears.

Yuya is taking care of Muramasa and is trying to remain cheerful even though she has been given a death sentence. She feels like even more of a burden to the gro

Shelves: manga
The Mibu are coming after Kyo with a vengience, and in a major new plot twist, Yuya is in mortal danger as a result. In order to square off against the Mibu, the team splits up, hoping to reunite stronger than before. Good story.
There were elements of the story-line that I did like, but most of this volume was so focused on the fighting scenes, that I started getting bored. I hope, with the added tension regarding YuYa's dilemma, the next volume will be more interesting.
