This series might look like non stop Samurai action,epic story but the strenght of the writing is how much the story shows less romantic,more realistic view on Samurai era,culture. The normal people that didnt thrive under the caste,honor system of the Samurai.

The most brilliant part of the work is though the stunning,cinematic artwork. 40 years old it still looks more beautiful,stronger than 100% of other japanese comics,other comics i have read.

There are maybe many classic important series like this but this is best and my alltime fav. Its my third time reading the whole series now.
