Synopsis

A bright-spirited young historical scholar, Iba, disappears while on a lone expedition to study the ancient Silk Road. A year later his girlfriend, Kyoko, sets out for the Silk Road in order to find clues that will help to unravel the mystery of Iba's disappearance. When she arrives, she finds the charm she gave Iba for protection and moments later she is sucked into a black vortex and loses consciousness. Kyoko awakes to find herself in a very different place and discovers that that Iba is not only alive but is a warrior-slave under the reign of Genghis Khan in 13th century Mongolia! At last, when Iba and Kyoko reunite, they find that there are a series of fates, crueler than the ones they have already endured, awaiting them...

Background

Ourou was in English as King Of Wolves by Dark Horse on June 7, 2005 and in Polish as Król Wilków by Hanami on June 30, 2009—the volume is comprised of Ourou and Ourouden.

"King of Wolves", also known as "Ourou" in japanese, is a manga by Buronson (of Hokuto no Ken fame) and Kentaro Miura (of Berserk fame). As a fan of both authors, I had to read this manga and felt like writing a short review. Bear in mind that this review comes from the perspective of a fan of both Buronson and Miura.

Story - 7/10
First off, since this manga is really short, you cannot really expect much from the story. The story follows Iba, who is the no. 1 kendo (the japanese equivalent of fencing) master in Japan, as he travels back in time into the read more

If your any fan of Kentarou Miura (of Berserk fame) or Buronson (Fist of the North Star) or, like me, both of them. You'll undoubtedly be so utterly excited to read this that you can barely contain yourself. Like me >_>

Putting them together on a story/art collaboration is just a set up to have a manga full of huuuuge muscled manly men beat each other to death. It was. Every male character in this manga is big, well built, and even sometimes a little ugly as real men are.

Since it was so short, you can't expect much complexity from the story, and you won't read more
