5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible adaption of a Japanese Classic, November 1, 2009
This review is from: The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls 1: Revenge of the Hori Clan (Paperback)
This has got to be the greatest vengeance story since The Count of Monte Cristo. It's very intense: The Hori Clan rebels against the Brutal lord Kato Akinari, but the revolt is crushed. Kato sends his seven elite soldiers -- The Seven Spears of Aizu -- to hunt down and kill the survivors. The Spears track the survivors to a convent, where women from the Hori clan are hiding among the nuns. They kill most of the nuns, but seven of the Hori women elude death. Trained by the master swordsman Yagyu Jyubei Mitsuyoshi, they resolve to kill the Seven Spears one by one, and then elliminate Kato himself to end his brutal reign.

So we have seven women who are completely unskilled in the art of combat versus the Seven Spears, trained and hardened killers who have never known defeat. They obviously cannot defeat the Spears through skill, so they will need all their cleverness and guile in order to win.

Lord Kato and the Seven Spears are truly the most despicable villains I have ever come across, and Yagyu Jyubei is just so awesome it's rediculous. This manga is full of memorable characters, intense battles, and a rapidly twisting plot. It has something for everyone, and Segawa's art, as always, is of higher quality than the art of 99 percent of manga artists out there.

Well, everyone over 18 years old. The MATURE label is there for good reason.

Tch. It appears activeanime.com plagarized my review and used it on their site for the 7th volume.

Look guys, feel free to use my reviews as you will--you don't need to ask--but please give credit to your sources. It's not a real big deal, and I won't lose any sleep over it, but it irks me to see someone take my work and publish it as their own.
