Basilisk: The Kouga Ninja Scrolls, Volume 4

Basilisk: The Kouga Ninja Scrolls, Vol. 4 - Masaki Segawa, Futaro Yamada The battle between the Iga and Kouga clans continues, leaving only 5 ninjas left by the end of this volume (out of ten per side that started out). A noble lady decides to meddle, which could make things interesting. Once again, the pace on this one moves along very fast. One of the things I am noticing in this series is the amount of detail. I may reread the series soon just to appreciate it some more. Oh, and in this volume, did that last ninja to die, Tenzen, actually die? Seems a shapeshifter is involved. Maybe instead of 5, there may still be 6 ninja left. Another cool thing about this series is that the ninjas all have different techniques and powers from the shapeshifter to the woman who can stop any ninja technique with just her vision. This is a nice blend of fantasy and action. Well worth the reading, and I am heading along to read volume 5 to find out how it all ends.
