Synopsis

At the dawn of the 17th century, at the end of the era of civil wars, in a world of chaos, the epic Battle of Sekigahara was joined. One man emerged from the largest battle ever fought on Japanese soil; a terrible warrior of unspeakable power, he was nicknamed 'the unconquerable.'

Kyoshiro is a peaceful medicine peddler who harbors the soul of an assassin. He accompanies a young bounty hunter across Japan in search of a murderer and on a quest to discover the terrible secret of his own identity.

First off - I may be a little bias towards this manga, as this is actually the first manga that I ever read. But regardless of that, I really wanted to write a review for this particular series as I tend to feel that this gets slightly overlooked. Samurai Deeper Kyo is Akimine Kamijyo's first published manga. Compared to the anime of the same title, this offers so much more to the general audience. And not only that, the anime does not accurately portray the manga. But despite the differences between the two, they both follow the story of Onime read more

This is the worlds most underated manga ever made. Possible the most underated thing in this world.
This series is just as bleach but more serious and less humor.

As most series it starts out a little wierd but later it turs into a masterpiece.
The story follows a boy named Kyoshiro, a medecinman who only wants to help people but an bounty hunter yuya misstakes kyo for Demoneyes kyo and caputre him. Later on he Kyoshiro changes into Demoneyes kyo in a dangerous situation. And some chapters in the future he changes into him permanently.
Then story follows him trying to found his own body. It sounds read more

I know in a lot of reviews, it tells you practically everything that happens. I will try my best to avoid that. You can read a series summary on this site for it. And any summary really doesn't due this manga justice. Instead, I'll tell you why I gave each category its rating.

Story=9
This story goes much more in depth than the anime makes people believe. There is action, adventure, sadness, humor, suspense, and all the good things that make a plot line great. But you might ask why I didn't give it a ten then.
Here we go; read more

After I just finished reading this Manga I feel like I really have to write a review. With such a great story I can't understand that Samurai Deeper Kyo still has a rather small fan community.
I think a reason for that could be that stupid anime that's made of this. I first heard of SDK because of the anime ... and I didn't really like that - but there were so much questions left open in the end that I decided to take a look at the manga - what a great decision^^

I was totally surprised about the manga. The way the story is read more
