Samurai Executioner

Samurai Executioner

In a prison world, there are few good stories, and this is the world of Kubikiri Asa, the beheader and master samurai under the Shogun. It's a world full of vengeance, greed, and violence. A world of depravity and sin. One man can set things straight if he can keep his wits. This is a story of extreme proportions, of sword study thick in tradition and with grim purpose, of blood rivers, agonizing screams, bondage, torture, and the evil prevalent in human failure.

Created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima, very interesting stories and capturing drawing. An immersion in the human nature through heroes of solid character, devoted, disciplined, like a seathed sword with a quick draw.

Japan's samurai past is riddled with stories of great fighting prowess and deeply ingrained systems of honor and discipline. But behind the stern demeanor was a society coming apart at the seams. Clashes in class systems and the need for a nation to come together threaten to break up the old ways of warring samurai--these are tales of such struggles. This is the story of Japan's history, and the beginning of the end of the samurai era.
