Today’s manga post is on Samurai Deeper Kyo volume 29 by Akimine Kamijyo. It is published by Tokyopop. As it the 29th in the series you need to have read the first 28 to get the story. The cover has Kyo in all his red-eyed perfection. The intended reader is someone who likes samurai manga, unusual romance, and lots of fighting. There is implied nudity, mild language, and lots of violence in this volume. The story is told from third person god perspective with thoughts of character’s added in for character and plot development. There Be Spoilers Ahead.
From the back of the book- Kyo faces his most formidable opponent yet- Oda Nobunaga’s soul, trapped inside the shaman Nozomu’s body! And when Nobunaga raises the souls of the deceased Twelve God Shogun, Kyo will need to defeat old friends and foe alike. Then, once Demon Eyes Kyo’s true body enters the picture… his ultimate power will be revealed!
Review-Lots of drama with this volume. As Nobunaga is in Yuya’s brother’s body she is very involved in the fighting. She keeps talking to Nozomu and that pisses off Nobunaga so much that he almost kills her. Well that does not go over well with Kyo or Kyoshiro. Kyoshiro speaks with the former crimson king and gets Kyo’s true body send to them. We finally get to see Kyo at his best. He kicks some ass and then Kyoshiro does what he does best- which is betrayal. Kyoshiro forces Kyo back into his body and Kyoshiro takes Kyo’s true body and is going to kidnap Yuya. I know that Kyoshiro survives the series but I do not know how. Kyo’s more than a little pissed during this whole manga. With so many people hurting Yuya, Yuya saying that she loves Kyo and that she cannot forgive Kyoshiro; he wants lots of people dead. I really cannot wait to see where everything is going in the next volume.
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.
