I love the mature portrayal of nudity, especially loved the display of naked women every now and than though out the story, I must admit it was titillating. I absolutely loved it and even jerked off a few times. I must say I am getting a boner just thinking about it. It was just so much better than all the stupid hentai doujins I had read.
The extreme gore and blood indeed made me nauseating but that was part of the roller coaster ride, that Shigurui was. read more

Shigurui is a story with amazing presentation. The story is both linear and not-linear at the same time.
The story is of two men and their respective paths toward each other. It relies heavilly on narration with description.
What inspired me to write this review is that the manga has continually been able to keep me wanting to get to the next chapter. The story never reaches a moment of stagnation. Things keep happening.
The art is very very detailed. I don't usually prefer art like this. But Shigurui is a story deserving of such art.
However the detailed art may also disturb some. As violent and sexual images are abound.
But best of all is the the drawings that depict the movement of the characters, it is juts remarkable to see it done.
The fighting scenes are very easy to follow. And therefore
Shigurui features some of the most unsympathetic characters in all of manga.
But their hinted emotions are what make the story great.
The main characters are driven by one thing, and it is not love. It is the maintenance of their honor.
I find it enjoyable.
It's a deep story with remarkable art. read more

Shigurui put's on a time machine to were honor tradition is all that's matter, nothing is spared from the reader as the characters fight, laugh and f***.
it's not long and very addicting, please stay with it longer that the first 2 chapters, after that you would find yourself submerged deep in the plot.
