I'm not really into manga or anime for that matter because I have a real hard time wrapping my head around the Japanese style of storytelling, not to mention all of the subtle cultural differences that tend to keep me in the dark on what should be obvious metaphors. This series by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima though was perfect for me. The plots are very straightforward and executed with a very graceful style, simple enough that I feel like I'm getting everything even though I'm probably not. I also really like the concept of a father and his baby out in the world, both swords for hire. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

He was once a Shogun's executioner, honored, exalted, feared. But after the murder of his wife and family, Itto Ogami takes his surviving child, little Daigoro, and becomes a masterless samurai, a Lone Wolf, the Baby Cart Assassin. Theirs is a dark voyage fraught with death, treachery, and vengeance, and their stories have captured audiences across the globe, both in graphic novels and in the exciting television and movie series they spawned. Long out-of-print in America, and never-before-published Stateside in its preferred Japanese pocket-sized format, Lone Wolf and Cub is again available to English-speaking audiences in all the gut-wrenching power and blood-stained glory that has made this landmark series an international legend.--Amazon.com
