I thought that I'll reserve this to the last volumes of the series, but The Will of the Fang is my most favorite volume of Lone Wolf and Cub yet. The eponymous chapter in this book is the best chapter that I have read so far. Here, Itto Ogami has shown a side of him that readers haven't seen and felt so far. I won't spoil it with you, but many will agree that they have been moved by both the action and the silent parts of this chapter.

Life in Death is a chapter for fathers. Damn, to think that O

This may well be the most surprising volume of Lone Wolf and Cub to date. We have seen the devotion of Ogami Itto and his son Daigoro to the path of vengeance they have have undertaken, eschewing all that is human in order to follow the way of meifumado. Devoted only to his quest for vengeance, Itto seems to have forgotten all of the trappings of his former life and truly acts the role of a demon incarnate, a whirlwind of death and destruction. True, there have been quieter moments for both fath ...more

Die Jagd wird intensiver

Die Jagd auf den einsamen Wolf wird nun intensiver. Die Belohnung, die die Yagyu nun bieten, kann niemand mehr ignorieren: Soviel Geld hat kaum einer bisher gesehen. Dies ruft die unterschiedlichsten Jäger auf den Plan.

Besonders interessant fand ich daher die Folge "Bounty Demons", die durch die interessanten Kopfgeldjäger sehr viel Atmosphäre trägt.

Auffallend: in zwei der Geschichten zeigt Ogami Itto Gefühle; einmal für einen ehemaligen Schüler und dann für seinen Sohn,

I have the feeling that this is one of those series you have to had read almost the whole way through to have it make sense. Then again, I'm not sure - going off the volumes I've read - I could take seventeen closely packed (I'm serious, the books are SMALL, and considering how detailed the linework is that's not necessarily a good thing. Eyestrain ahoy!) volumes, which all presumably consist of "Guy and son travelling somewhere, their journey interrupted occasionally for a bloodbath." I have a ...more

Chapter 85 "The Will of the Fang" and chapter 87 "Life in Death" are possibly my favorite chapters in this series so far. Both works are very moving. Plus they serve as great depictions of Bushido.

Mangaya az biraz ilgi duyan herkesin okuması gereken bir seri. Başta fazla Punisherımsı, anti kahraman işi gibi gelse de aslında çok daha sağlam bir kurgusu olduğunu söylemek işten bile değil.

The hunt continues. It's interesting how the series heats up as the bounty increases.
There are enough twists to make it interesting and things get more desperate.
