Manga Pulse 463: Samwise Ninja

What’s this? I don’t know if it’s the booze or not but I’m seeing double. Two manga reviews in the same show? We take the heavy effort of picking up the books, reading them, then scrambling to get the equipment fired up and working. We might also develop some sort of opinion about them and apply a rating. Once we’ve wandered off into the weeds so far we’re finding golf balls.

Tim has Ninja Slayer Kills. A manga which has a wild backstory we dig into a little within the show. The face of it is mostly straight forward. Tokyo of the future is suddenly plagued by the resurrected spirits of evil ninjas possessing the bodies of cyborgs. One of them kills some guys wife and son which opens him to being possessed by a ninja spirit of vengeance. It winds up as a Read It Now.

Weltall has Samurai 8: The Tale Of Hachimaru. What happens when someone creates an incredibly influential series which spans decades? Try and see if that was just a fluke or if you possess a rare gift. Kishimoto has decidedly not that magic when he created this. It’s about some guy who does things and he has skills. There are probably swords and shit. It gets a Burn It.
