Arm of Kannon, Vol. 1

Arm of Kannon, Volume 1 - Masakazu Yamaguchi This was definitely very good. A scholar finds an old relic, the Arm of Kannon, which unleashes dark powers. Now the government wants it to make supersoldiers. And more sinister agents want it as well. Scholar comes back after vanishing for some years, and he is about to pass the relic on to his son. Meanwhile, a mysterious swordsman comes to protect the boy and his sister, but can he handle all of this? It is fast paced; it is nice and gruesome for a horror manga, and it looks like the story will get deeper after the first volume. Definitely a series I will continue to look for.
