These stories are told with the same bold, kinetic art style and brilliantly paced storytelling that Samura's Blade of the Immortal epic is famous for. The main offering, "Ohikkoshi," follows the turbulent paths of several twenty-something art students as they fall in love, fall in lust, play in rock bands, ride motorbikes, eat, sleep (together), and try to avoid making life decisions while drunk. This romantic comedy is a "Japanese art school confidential" packed with absurd humor, obscure death metal references, and some expertly placed, dramatic revelations. "Luncheon of Tears Diary" is a vibrant, genre-busting tale that also peppers its humor with sharp, dramatic moments. Natsumi Funabashi, a virgin, is an aspiring manga creator on a quest for love and a fulfilling career. Along the way, she has to cope with overzealous men, gang warfare, a mahjong addiction, and a lascivious manga editor. This collection is rounded off by Samura's hilarious "Kyoto Super Barhopping Journal: Bloodbath at Midorogaike," a rare, autobiographical travel piece.

Being a huge fan of Hiroaki Samura's work on Blade of the Immortal, I could barely contain my excitement when I ran across Ohikkoshi, and I had absolute confidence that he would deliver the same beautiful artwork and compelling storytelling that I've become accustomed to.

The story focuses on Tono and his group of friends taking those awkward, and often difficult steps toward adulthood. Desperately clinging together over alcohol, cigarettes, loud music, and love, the group slowly begins to crumble as each begins to drift toward their own respective paths.

It's a fairly simple story, and the sort of subject matter that I'm not used to read more

The first person who teach you the meaning of the verb love will also be the first person who teaches you the meaning of the pain."

For some unknown reasons, I ended up dumping Blade of the Immortal, a renowned Samurai Manga. A year later, I've finally found the answer. It wasn't that BOTI was bad, it was because somewhere deep inside my brain, I was confirmed that Samura's real talent lies somewhere else and it turned out that I was right. Ohikkoshi brought out the best from Samura as he tells the stories of "Youth-in-Love" in a fantastic manner.

In this short but exciting manga, the read more
