Free of the 13th Prophet, Takeo has traveled to the Unnamed Island, where his skills as a swordsman, and as a man, are challenged. But he has the chance to learn the Bushido Way and what it truly takes - and what it truly means - to be a Samurai.
Samurai #2 is a terrific issue that makes every aspect of this story more engrossing whether it's the lives of the villagers, the Yakuza's activities, or the truth of Takeo's family history. Akio's introduction early this issue is a great touch allowing the story to progress without anything feeling like filler because of confidence that important issues will be addressed. There isn't much action aside from Takeo and Shobei's preparation for the upcoming tournament but the character development is so strong and entertaining that it makes the anticipation for the action even greater. I don't know how events will unfold next issue but I'm so glad I started this series because now I'm hooked. Read Full Review
It has been entertaining to watch Takeo find his brother, and it'll be even more so to watch Takeo fight for the village against another really skilled samurai. Both of them barely show any emotion, so it's going to be awesome to see how they each handle the pressure. If you're looking forward to it as much as I am, keep reading to see what happens!
