Summary: Renewing my faith in the series
Comment: After reading volume 3 of Samurai Deeper Kyo, my faith in the series has grown. The art is wonderful, and while the lettering is very small, the dialogue is snappy and I think it's pretty well translated.
In this volume the reader finally gets an idea of where the plot is going, and frankly, it's a very exciting turn of events. Violence! History! Supernatural demons! Sword techniques with long names! Fanservice for the guys! This manga has everything.
And don't you dare compare it to Rurouni Kenshin. Let's be honest now, if you've read this far into the series, you know they are nothing alike. So I say, read this manga. If you're just venturing outside of the darling Adult Swim line-up ("d00d! Inu-yasha is leik the BEST anime ever. EVER, I SAY!") Then this is a nice introduction to manga, and if you're just looking for the plain old plot and violence line, well, this is for you also.
