Really enjoying Parasyte -the maxim- I got the idea to check out the other works from the same author in the hope of finding something very good.
This one volume contains two independent quite short stories set in feudal Japan.
Yuki no Touge:
Pretty slow story. Kind of reads like a historical record but it is quite interesting to follow the clan building their new castle and an intrigue.
Tsurugi no Mai:
After a girl gets raped and her family is killed she takes up swordsmanship in order to get revenge. Since the story is very short there it feels rushed and stays a simple revenge story.
They were quite a few very interesting characters that are kind of wasted on a 1 volume Manga and would have fitted in longer stories. The drawings are kept quite simple but are all right. I was expecting a bit more from the stories to be honest but it was still enjoyable to read for 1.5 hours.
