Blade of the Immortal: Volume 23: Scarlet Swords

by Hiroaki Samura, 218 pages

After the Ittô-Ryû lay a clever trap for Kagimura and his men, everybody's on the road and hot on their trail.  But Anotsu still has a trick or two up his sleeve.

Arg!  Whom do I root for, here?  I like so many of these people and feel at least a little sympathy for most of the ones I don't.  Stupid bureaucracy and vengeance and indebtedness, pulling everybody into messes.  Kagimura's still a "villain"--as most definitely are some of the people previously or presently in his employ (including the vilest of the vile)--but, dude, you can't help but pity him a little after this volume.
