Rep: 149



Synopsis wrote: Manji is an immortal swordsman, who has been cursed with eternal life. He has grown tired of living with all the death he has created. He has no skills other then those of killing, thus he forms a plan to regain his mortality: he shall kill one hundred evil men for each good one he has killed. The old witch who afflicted Manji with immortality agrees to Manji’s proposition and Manji is set on his path to kill one thousand evil men. On his journey he meets a young girl, Rin, who has her own vengeance to seek against the sword school whose members slaughtered Rin’s family. Rin and Manji journey together, each hoping to find some kind of peace. In their way are many varied enemies. Rin and Manji are almost constantly under attack and must learn to live their lives, avoiding being consumed by revenge.


I’m on chapter 31 right now

Quite simply, a gripping and badass samurai manga. Manji is one of the coolest characters I’ve seen, and Rin Asano is actually a good character(which I really didn’t expect by reading the synopsis)

There’s also the fact that most of the enemies, the Itto Ryu, are actually good villains. My favorite member so far would have to be either Taito Magatsu or Araya Kawakami.

Definitely one of my favorite series.

Just read the first two chapters.

Art style is messed up at times, but not too bad. Manji seems like a cool bad ass.

Chapters are way too damn long though. I’ll just have to sick to reading one a day.

On chapter 64 right now.

Damn this manga is very good. Shira is one crazy bastard, making his cut off arm into a bone sword.

Read the first chapter and haven’t touched it since, since it was RIGHT before I started reading Berserk, lol.

I’ll definitely pick it back up soon, since I remember enjoying it.

I’m on chapter 125. It’s not as a great as its early chapters now, but it’s still a very good series.

I’ll go ahead and say that Manji Vs. Makie was the best fight of the manga. What about you Butcher?

Nope, that’s Arya.

Makie the chick who basically made a windmill out of her sword and grinds people’s flesh like a meat grinder.

Ah yes.

It was alright. The fight in BotI aren’t some of the best ever, but they’re still pretty good.

Taito and Shira’s fight is rough as hell. That is not how samurai fight. They’re just trying to kill each other however possible.

Up to a certain point. I think it’s like 120something, because Dark Horse decided to stop publishing it in America, now translators are just translating the chapters straight from Japan.

Shira’s torture chapters were pretty unnecessary imo.

I mean, holy shit cutting off a woman’s breast?

Fuck.

I’m gonna have to disagree. Makie and Manji’s fight is one of my favorite manga fights of all time. Arya and Manji’s fight comes in 2nd place as the best of the series.

It’s a shame that the Itto-Ryu aren’t nearly as good as they use to be. All they so now is show up, say a few lines, que fight, and get killed. I liked the little mini arcs for each one we had from earlier on in the series.

Tied between Rin & Manji. Rin offers the character depth that this manga needs, but Manji’s badassenry is able to match that. It balances out IMO.

Taito is a close third for me.

I like Shria for just being a crazy bastard.

Arya would have to be my 3rd favorite, then Taito 4th. I dunno, I just can’t seem to like him all that much. He’s a decent character, don’t get me wrong, but he seems to be jumping all over the place. I can’t really place him anywhere. One minute he’s awesome, the other he’s kinda boring.
