Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Okko is a ronin, a wandering, masterless samurai, hunting demons in the feudal-Japan-styled Pajan Empire. His three faithful sidekicks are Noshin, a sake-loving monk who can conjure spirits; Noburo, a mysterious masked warrior; and Tikku, an orphan pledged to Okko's service, who is also the narrator. In this volume, Lady Mayudama entreats Okko to rid her daughter of nighttime terrors. Noshin finds the culprit to be a cursed shamisen (a lutelike musical instrument), but now a bunraku-suited killer seeks Noburo's head. Each of the projected five volumes in this series—which was originally published in France and blends elements of manga with European bande dessinée art—can stand alone, but the previous volumes add helpful backstory about the characters. Okko himself evokes Ogami Itto of Lone Wolf and Cub but is less realistic, with a craggier, impassive face and a more obscure past. VERDICT The characters play off one another with anger and humor in all the right places, and the plots blend plenty of bloody action with dark intent, demonic possession, undead vengeance, and, occasionally, a bit of skin. The beautifully detailed art, unfortunately reduced slightly, invites leisurely perusal over a jaw-dropping sweep of setting and story. Recommended for adult collections.—M.C.
