Anyone of you who reads this manga? I'm reading it now (I even buy them, in french, because there is no other way) and it's really good. I like the style and the story, it has really good characters. (my avatar is one of the bad guys)
It puts up so many questions without answering them soon, which makes you want to read on all the time.

Well I'm curious if this manga is known among members here.

(OT: I've also seen the anime, and it has been changed so much it isn't like the manga at all... They even made every human that dies into some monster. That sounds like censoring mad.gif Really, the only good thing in the anime is the use of colors in the background *cries*)

Samurai Deeper Kyo follows the story of Demon Eyes Kyo (鬼目の狂) as he seeks to regain his body after his soul was sealed inside the body of his rival, Mibu Kyoshiro. Kyo is joined in his search by the bounty-hunter Shiina Yuya, the heir to the Tokugawa shogunate Benitora, and Sanada Yukimura, a known rival of the Tokugawa.

As of December 2009[update], 34 volumes had been released in the United States and Canada by Tokyopop, at which point Tokyopop dropped the series; it was picked up by Del Rey, who have released volumes 35 and 36 in a single volume and will be releasing the final two volumes in a second single volume. The series has also been released in Denmark, England, France, Germany, Indonesia, Singapore and Spain. It has also been adapted as a Game Boy Advance video game, released in Japan in late 2002. It was later released in North America in February 2008, as the last title for the system.

YES~ *Raises hand*

Love the manga. It's the first manga I've ever really read. :X

The anime is.... not for fans of the manga. I wanted to kill the director for making it the way it was, but then again I'm biased because I've known the manga.

Even made a personality quiz on it. ^o^

It's quite a popular manga over here, particularly among girls...

P.S: Shinrei (the guy in your avatar) isn't bad! He's just... hmm.... doing right things the wrong way... :X

@DarkWater Alchemist - Not spoiling~ ^_^

I dunno, even with his first appearance, I knew he just wasn't the same as the other baddies. ^_^

Shinrei and Hotaru are muh favorite characters along with Kyoshiro~

Waiting for volume 29~~~

@Thievesvinegar -28 at present~

I think it's the 3rd volume, after Benitora joins Yuya and Kyo... If not, it's the 2nd...

Sorry I can't confirm it... #01 - #18 isn't with me at the moment. >_<

It's been here quite some time. o_O

I've read up to the 9th volume and don't really remember what happens (I read them before I give them to my friend, because she gives me the money to buy them for her). Is 10 any good? Cliffhangers?

It's getting a little stale of late... fight fight fight fight... and... fight... o_O

Well I like the various supporting characters the manga has. happy.gif I'd say the fights are getting a little predictable at... volume #29, but well, the characters are still weird enough to keep me interested.

.... or my expectations of a anime / manga just shot sky-high after seeing FMA... ohmy.gif

Do you mean when they're dealing with the guardians of the gates? (curse the french translators for translating too many names!)

It's true that it's alot fighting there...

Quistis: Volume 10 is interesting, you get some good information and a new character is introduced.

:O

My... my... I just went out just now and dropped by a convenience store to read the latest chapter of SDK in the weekly comic compilation. I'm sick and tired of long-drawn out battles as it is, but THIS chapter had a bit of a surprise, and it was somewhat touching... ^___^ All I'll say is... Kyoshiro is my favorite character at the moment. ^______^
Spoiler: (Click here to Display)


PS: I think this will be out in volume 31.

I never read Kenshin before, but I did compare it with my best friend (who's a fan of the Kenshin manga) and indeed... o_O the similiarities are scary. Especially when you compare the 1 books of each series...

Hmmm... a little painful actually~


Anyway, I think the editors must be pestering the manga artist... for the past 3 volumes (weekly compilations), there've been MAJOR twists, turns, appearances of important characters etc... O_O YAY! happy.gif There's a LOT to look forward to~
