Issue 1: There's a new serial killer in Gotham, and he may have ties to the training Bruce Wayne acquired as a young man in Japan. Does the murderer know Bruce Wayne is the Batman

Issue 2: Bruce Wayne must confront his past and examine how the time he spent in Japan as a young man training to become Batman affected him...and whether his experiences then somehow led to the killer now rampaging throughout the underworld in Gotham.

Issue 3: The mystery of the deadly masks is uncovered, as the killer reveals his long-standing deep-rooted connection to the Dark Knight and the time they spent together as students in Japan years ago.

Issue 4: Events come to a head as the Batman must defeat the Oni — but before he can confront it, he must first face his own troubled past.

This is a very emotional and mysterious manga. It has a very gritty feel, from the dark art to the villain's motives. The best part is, it feels like a Batman comic.

However, I would have preffered a real Batman villain, not some exclusive weirdo. And while Batman does get development, he felt...different than in the comics. Also, the ending feels rushed.

If you're a Batman fan, you can do much worse. Like Gotham Knight, just ...

Every so often Western comics and Japanese manga are thrown together in an effort to create something "new". Unfortunately many of these renditions are simply Western comics that look like manga, but lack any of the style or substance of the medium.

Probably the most well known character though, is Batman.
