Rate this:
As Samurai Executioner continues moving into its own world of crime and punishment, honor and bushido, we are beginning to learn more about the characters and situations involved in Edo-era justice. We're learning about Kubikiri Asa, the Shogun's decapitator and his stoic life. This man's joyless existence is backed by stories of his past as a child and how they reflect on his current day. But we also learn more about the peace officers of the era. In particular, there's the character Catcher Kasajiro, the charming young man who uses a hooked rope and chained cudgel with such great skill. With these two characters, one with the guilt of many generations and one bearing the naiveté; of a young buck, bring an odd sort of tenderness to a world of pain, death and quirky kink. --Provided by publisher.
