Summary:
At the beginning of the Edo period (1603-1868), when people enjoyed a time of peace, Lord Tokugawa Tadanaga decides to hold a fighting tournament. In the past, matches were fought with wooden swords, but this time real swords will be used. The one-armed Fujiki Gennosuke and the blind Irako Seigen will fight each other in this tournament, even though both of them are disciples of Iwamoto Kogan — known as Japan's greatest swordsman. So begins the story of intertwining fates, conflict, and strange destinies.

The artwork of the characters and landscape/background alone is second to none. The realism of the historical background of the story and characters is very intriguing. I thought Rurouni Kenshin was good, but Shigurui is on a whole another level.

At first, the story line seemed to jump around a bit and I felt like I was laying catch up the first couple chapters...DO NOT LET THAT DETER YOU! The story is very deep and the background story for each character gets more intricate as the Manga progresses. There is no end to the amount of guts, internals, and organs spread around the path of these warriors. This was an awesome Manga I read from beginning to end!!
