Today’s post is on Samurai Deeper Kyo Volume 19. It is written by Akimine Kamijyo and is published by Tokyopop. As it is the 19th in the series you need to have read the others in the series to get the story. The cover has all the boys on it with Tenro just to add a little metal to the scene. The intended reader is someone who likes fighting, interesting characters, and surprising romance and should be older teen or adult. There is language, no sex, and lots of violence in this series and volume. The story is told from the third person point of view with character’s thoughts added in for plot and character development. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- An already weak Kyo faces off against Chinmei, guardian of the Third Gate. Chinmei offers Kyo the title of Crimson King- if he’ll kill his companions and join the Mibu, When Kyo refuses, there’s only one thing left to do: Fight! But all the while, Yuya’s time is running out, and the group has yet to face off against the powerful Taihaku…
Review- The fight with Chinmei is finished in this volume and it gets a little hairy for a moment. Then when you think that going to be business as usual Kyo realizes that Yuya is hiding how many stars she has left. When Chinmei attacked with his gravity he had the water dragons move so now she has less than one hour. That puts Kyo in a great mood. But we get some good Kyo/Yuya interactions that makes me happy. Yuya gets to tell off one of the Mubi because she is so tired of them thinking that they can control anything and everything around just because. Kyo even compliments her in his own Kyo way. Meaning he is ass about it. Benitora wants to fight next and he gets his wish. Good volume like always.
I give this manga a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
