    Eight volumes in and Blade of the Immortal remains a superior mixture of visual art and storytelling Samura s is a fine balance of scratchy pencil drawings and deep detail, able to grant character both to mountain ranges and human faces with very few lines Unlike most manga artists, he sadventurous in what he draws, often depicting the backs of speakers, or their hands or feet, to give a hint of the way they gesticulate or what they re doing as they talk Given his already expressive fac Eight volumes in and Blade of the Immortal remains a superior mixture of visual art and storytelling Samura s is a fine balance of scratchy pencil drawings and deep detail, able to grant character both to mountain ranges and human faces with very few lines Unlike most manga artists, he sadventurous in what he draws, often depicting the backs of speakers, or their hands or feet, to give a hint of the way they gesticulate or what they re doing as they talk Given his already expressive faces, these touches ensure that every page has character, inviting the eyes to fly along it caught in the samurai intrigue of the plot, or to loiter of the patterns of clothes and the poses of human bodies.This volume wisely tones the violence down after the end of Heart of Darkness went into borderline torture porn gore The Gathering balances the previous volume, with characters lying low to avoid blame for that gruesome event Its oppressive atmosphere expresses the anticipation of punishment as keenly as the previous volume expressed the disturbing nature of a sociopath It s a deep credit to Samura as a storyteller, showing Blade of the Immortal isn t just a book of cool fight scenes as the first volume might lull people into thinking, but something mature that is merely fascinated with the naive and the horrible Characters are still charitable, thoughtful and penitent in this world It is not all tough guys and blades, though those, too, get their time Ironically the one fight scene of the book is the worst drawn of the series, and the poorest scene in the volume, almost too frantic to follow.In the subdued story of this volume, Samura also highlights another strength Many of his expository chapters fly along as you try to figure out the next steps in each person s plan for the Itto Ryu assassination These make the upcoming violenceimportant, while giving an essential breather

    Following the events in volume 7, Heart of Darkness , this eighth volume of Hiroaki Samura s samurai manga with fantastical elements sees Rin and Manji wanted by the law, after having been left with the blame for the ruthless Mugai ry assassin Shira s cruel deeds The fellow Mugai ry assassin Hyakurin try to make amends of sorts for the former s failings, but this sets the story on a slightly new course.Samura continues to impress me with his plotting and vivid character relations, and the Following the events in volume 7, Heart of Darkness , this eighth volume of Hiroaki Samura s samurai manga with fantastical elements sees Rin and Manji wanted by the law, after having been left with the blame for the ruthless Mugai ry assassin Shira s cruel deeds The fellow Mugai ry assassin Hyakurin try to make amends of sorts for the former s failings, but this sets the story on a slightly new course.Samura continues to impress me with his plotting and vivid character relations, and the series keeps me hooked

    Well, now Rin and Manji are finding themselves wanted, dead or alive, not only by the Itto Ryu, but by the shogunate as well So, now they need to find a way to get out of Edo through the heavily guarded checkpoints, while also avoiding the agents of the Itto Ryu.

  9. Matt says:

    Love it The first two thirds of the book involve to fighting, just waiting and plotting Yet somehow the tension keeps it interesting.

  10. Jessica Halleck says:

    Still building beautifully on the characters, character relationships, and tension in the pursuit of Anotsu The end fight is a little haphazard and hard to follow, however, which is unfortunate.
