Samurai Deeper Kyo volume 27


Today’s post is on Samurai Deeper Kyo volume 27 by Akimine Kamijyo. It is the published by Tokyopop. As it is the 27th in the series you need to have the first 26. The cover has Kyo, Yukimura, and Bontenmaru on looking cool in watercolors. The intended reader is someone who likes samurai manga, lots of character’s, and unusual love story. There is no language, some sexuality, and lots of violence. The story is told from third person god perspective with character’s thoughts added in for character and plot development. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- As Yukimura is on the verge of defeating the traitor Shindara, Kosuke rushes in to reveal the shocking truth behind Shindara’s betrayal. Just as the misunderstandings are put to rest, the Four Elders appear… to welcome Kyo and the gang into Onmyo Palace! What secrets are hidden within, and more importantly, will our heroes survive them?

Review- Yukimura gets some closure on some of his stuff. Sasuke decides that he wants to see this through with Kyo and company. Kyo and Yukimura’s fight is pretty good. Yukimura gets to show off to Kyo and they are friends again. But I think the best part of this volume is between Hotaru and Shinrei. It is so funny. They are wanting to argue and fight when some faceless baddies show up and stop them. So they decide that they have to kill faceless baddies so that they can fight. Hotaru is so funny. I imagine his voice is so flat; like he says everything in the same tone with the same inflection. After that we get back to Kyo and Sasuke and it’s Sasuke’s turn to be annoyed and confused by Kyo’s thought processes. More drama and action ahead and I cannot wait.

I give this volume and manga a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
