Samurai Deeper Kyo Volume 6


Today’s post is on Samurai Deeper Kyo Volume 6 by Akimine Kamijo. It is the sixth in the series and you need to have the previous volumes to get the story. The cover has Kyo, in armor on it looking cool. There is strong language, sexuality, and lots of violence in this series. The story is told from third person god point of view with the thoughts of the characters sometimes added for character development and history. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Forest of the Damned
Aokigahara, the forest at the base of Mt. Fuji, is said to be home to bloodthirsty monsters; no mortal man dare walk these woods. But today Aokigahara has become quite crowded. Demon Eyes Kyo is here in search of his body, as are his greatest enemies, The Master and the 12 God Shoguns. The stakes are higher, the combatants deadlier- blood will be shed this day.

Review- The plot is moving more nicely. Kyoshiro makes an appearance for a few pages but I cannot say that I missed him. But his reappearance does give some development to his character. Gone is the shallow perv and now he is something that even Kyo does not know. But that has to do with the mystery of why Kyo and Kyoshiro hate each other and will have to get back to later. Kyo really does not know what to do with Yuya and it shows. He makes me laugh by being himself ass and all. Sasuke Sarutobi, one of Yukimura’s ninja, has been sent to guide them through the forest. But of course Kyo has an opinion about that and about the young ninja. So of course in the next volume they are going fight it out. Sasuke is funny because he is so serious about everything; from Yukimura to Kyo and everything in between. But I like most of the characters in this series and he is no different. The other woman makes her entrance; Lady Sakuya. She is a miko and Kyo, of course, hates her or at least has any opinion about her.
I give this manga Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
