Today’s post is on Samurai Deeper Kyo volume 26 by Akimine Kamijyo. It the 26th in the series and so you need to have read the first 25 to understand the story. It is published by Tokyopop. The cover has Yukimura on it looking cool. The intended reader is someone who loves samurai manga, lots of character’s and unexpected romance. There is implied nudity, language, and lots of violence, older teens and adults only for the best. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- In order to put a stop to Haira of the Twelve God Shogun, Bontenmaru must resort to his ‘Beast’ mode if he wants to come out victorious- and alive. Next, Yukimura defends his men against the unstoppable Shindara, which results in a heart-touching revelation. And at last… the identity of the Former Crimson King is revealed!
Review- Kyo is not much in this volume but Bon is funny. He has to fight and it gets nasty. But he wins and the story gets to the real meat of this volume. All about Yukimura and real Crimson King. The King is something both funny and very scary. I really want to see some interactions between him and Kyo. We get to see why he is still in power in spite of the Five Stars being so powerful. Then Yukimura takes the stage. We get what happened between him and Shindara and bonus we get to meet more of Yukimura’s ninja’s. There is some foretelling with Yuya but I cannot wait to see it come to fruition. Lots of plots development and fighting and stuff. Great manga.
I give this volume a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
