Samurai 8 was amazing. From all cancelled mangas this one was certainly the best.

Woah, I didn't know Atsushi Ohkubo had a brother! Your art was probably the only good part of Samurai 8 too, lol. I hope you're able to make a really cool manga someday!

His art is really good and expressive, he just needs to learn the use of line weights and stop over stuffing the panels with so much of everything.
