Samurai Deeper Kyo Manga Review

Overall, I enjoyed reading Samurai Deeper Kyo Manga. On first 100 chapters, I found it very entertaining to see the action scene, while inserted by comedy here and there.

What makes Samurai Deeper Kyo more interesting is the fact it actually following Japanese warring era period. For myself who was played and love Samurai Warriors game by KOEI, I can noticed many popular characters in Japanese history appears on Samurai Deeper Kyo like Yukimura Sanada, Nobunaga Oda, Masamune Date, etc.

Samurai Deeper Kyo Manga chapter 2
Samurai Deeper Kyo Manga chapter 2, Kyo comes.

However I think, Samurai Deeper Kyo become like boring on the second of third from whole chapters as they dragged the battle scene to be as long as possible, and where they always repeating the same premise about how "Aura" is so important to a character in a fight.

But thankfully it started entertaining again on the last third part of the story, Samurai Deeper Kyo started to gave me unexpected turn of events on the last third part of the story.

And more notice that there are bloods, adult conversationa, and "safe naked" scenes. So I don't recommend Samurai Deeper Kyo unlesa you are 18 years or older.
