Azumi focuses upon the life of the female assassin Azumi. The manga begins an indeterminate number of years after the Battle of Sekigahara, but as the Azumi begins her assassination missions, the manga introduces the characters into mainstream history. Many of the early assassination missions that Azumi undertakes are the assassinations of the prominent supporters and generals of the Toyotomi Clan, against whom the Toyotomi Clan expected to again go to war.
Story - 8
Azumi follows the life journey of the female MC known as Azumi who's a character trained from birth to be an assassin. She's young, naive, brave, strong, beautiful. I tip my hats to her!!!! She grows older, meets new people, connects with some, KILLS SOME FOR SURE!!!! At the end of it all, she has to survive every situation she finds herself and move on. The way the story progresses and the things that happen are what made me give this an 8.
Art - 7
The art style is actually good, a bit old school but it's sufficient enough to depict everything the reader needs to see, witness, observe. It utilizes a dark art style and it's very gory, just like I like 'em. People get their heads chopped off in the blink of an eye so I can never complain when that's present.
Character - 8
Well, the female MC is quite interesting, funny and very naive all at the same time. There's never a dull moment with her, this is surprising for me to admit because I hate almost ALL female characters in any story I find myself reading or watching. Her naivety to common knowledge of the world kind of brings a little unpredictability to her character and you'll come to like that about her. She's strong as fuck and that's a good thing in my book. Other characters in general are just hard to connect to or care about since they end up dying overtime haha. Be careful not to get attached to any!!!!!!!!!! The death flags in this manga don't play for real!!!!! THEY GETS BUSY!!!!!!!!!
Enjoyment - 10
It's an awesome read for me. I enjoy its gore, Azumi herself, the action, the progression. The pacing is steady and you won't have much to complain about. People dying everywhere, for me, that's definitely a YES!!!!
Overall - 9
1. If you're a fan of brutality and gore, THIS IS DEFINITELY FOR YOU!!!!
2. If you hate female characters like I do, Azumi is great!!! She's a rare one.
3. If you ain't a fan of romance and soft emotional matters (like me), DON'T HESITATE TO START THIS MANGA!!!!!read more
