Read the manga, well most of it, and to be honest I didn't really like it. To much death amongst the so called character crew, but an interesting psyche is bestowed upon them which is probably the highlight of the manga.
Simply not to my taste.

Nice pics though, the first one truthfully captures the spirit of practically every main page.

...i keep telling myself I should invest in a decent manga series, Samurai Executioner has captured my imagination, purely from some of the artwork i've seen.. so many elements have to come together to make a magnificent manga, im a little bit like the proverbial donkey starving between two bales of hay....

Nikolas said...

Hm, if your interested, I was quite taken by a certain manga labeled "Berserk". So if that bale of hay is not already eaten, you should try and giving it a good look, and perhaps go for it.

The Elderly said...

I will most assuredly check it out, I hadn't heard of it before.. .thanks for the tip

Here to help...
Hope you like it as much as I did.

...wikipedia cites 29 million volumes sold... now thats pretty awesome, and the storyline is fascinating.....

Nikolas said...

I guess the work kinda speaks for it self.
Character development is just beyond any manga I read, artwork is magnificent, plot above words, and the gore... Oh the bloody gore...

By my account, best comic ever, but I'll let you be the judge of that...

Nikolas said...

I'll be shure to try that.
Could use the money...
