I was told about this manga by a friend of mine who had already been reading it for awhile,and I must say from the beginning this manga caught my interest.The lead character isn't a guy who wins all the time like other shonen manga,the characters are all interesting in their own way and have good backstory.Also this manga doesn't suffer from plot armor like alot of other mangas where the heroes don't kill anyone and always try to talk them out of their situation or turn them into good guys.It shows the true samurai glory which is to cut down anything in your path.The attacks are well thought out and they story is awesome.I must say I'm totally hooked.
