Reviews Usagi Yojimbo, Vol. 10 (Usagi Yojimbo, #10)

  • Aaron
    It is genuine joy to watch Sakai grow as a storyteller and artist. Having now read the first 10 volumes of Usagi Yojimbo, as the title went from Fantagraphics to Mirage to its current home at Dark Horse, I've seen Usagi stories shift from unconnected one-offs to an ever-expanding, highly consistent world. I really love the way the stories have begun developing, particularly in this volume.This is the first book that truly begins to feel like a se...

    Usagi Yojimbo, on the surface is a simple concept. Anthropomorphic animals in 16th century Edo Japan - with the narrative centering around a "Long Eared Samurai", a Rabbit - the eponymous Usagi of the title. Usagi,literally means Rabbit in Japanese and Yojimbo refers to "Bodyguard". Rabbit Bodyguard. It mixes several references to the Samurai films of Kurosawa with a deliberate homage to the great samurai swordsman Miyamoto Musashi while treading...

    Absolutely wonderful. The Noodles storyline did something none of the others had yet, I not only was interested enough to be entertained, I was moved by the events of the story. Comics are often entertaining, sometimes they're clever enough, and cool enough to be really great, but rarely are they truly emotionally moving. I think Noodles is one of the best arcs I've read in any comic in quite a long time.

    This volume was a joy to read. It's been a few months since I picked up an Usagi Yojimbo trade, but as I read through this one I kept thinking to myself "Has it always been THIS great?". Although I've thoroughly enjoyed every preceding story, Sakai just seems to keep getting better. The art (particularly the landscapes) are even more beautifully and clearly drawn than usual. The cast of interesting recurring characters keeps growing. I'm beginnin...

    Un ensemble d'histoire courte pas forcément homogène.On y retrouve par exemple Kitsuné dans une histoire clairement ignoble (avec le nauvre Noodles qui se fait crucifier), ou les ninjas chauve-souris à la recherche d'un secret qui pourrait leur coûter cher.Une ou deux histoires se détachent pour moi. D'abord la première mettant en scène les pêcheurs d'algues, qui est à nouveau l'occasion pour Sakai de nous expliquer la vie dans la Japon...

    Citlivě sestavená a díky tomu vyvážená sbírka, kde je od každého typu Usagiho dobrodružství zdařilý zástupce. A tak tu máme krátké povídky i dlouhé příběhy rozvíjející hlavní dějovou linku, dějepisný nikam se neženoucí pohled „jak to tenkrát chodilo v tom kterém zaměstnání“ stejně jako akcí nabitou samurajskou vybíjenou a do toho nějaký ten atmosférický kaidan či příběh cti i pomsty. Ovšem jakko...

    My favorite Usagi Yojimbo volume thus far. There's a je ne sais quoi improvement in the tightness of the art and especially the plot—Usagi is always moving forward, there's always an outgoing impetus at the end of every vignette, a quality that felt absent before. Ten volumes in, Sakai seems to have mastered his craft. The 'How It's Made' aside about seaweed farming is worth mentioning for how much I love that sort of thing, and the Noodles sto...

    There's some good stuff in here. Noodles is by far the best, most emotionally engrossing story of this collection, the Inazuma stories introduce us to a new, formidable frenemy for Usagi, and the Black Soul story reminds us that [SPOILERS] is still out there. I'm 10 volumes into Stan Sakai's 30 year run on Usagi Yojimbo and I'm no longer baffled by how consistently good all of these stories are.

    Petualangan Usagi Yojimbo berlanjut, dari membantu para petani kaiso (ganggang) sampai menumpas makhluk gaib. Saya sendiri paling suka dengan kisahnya bersama para petani kaiso. Meskipun tidak sarat aksi pertempuran, saya belajar banyak tentang pertanian kaiso. Selain itu, kisah hidup Inazuma yang dituturkan pada Usagi juga cukup menarik perhatian (simpati). ^_^

    Buku 3 versi terbitan Gramedia, tapi kalau menurut seri aslinya sih adalah book 10. Masih berisi petualangan Usagi dan teman-temannya, tp sedikit terganggu karena nggak kenal sama mereka, mungkin muncul di buku 1 s/d 7 yang nggak (belum) diterbitkan.Lumayan ringan dan menghibur. ** Jangan dibandingkan dengan Taiko atau Mushashi ya....**

    There are three comic book series I'd recommend to people who don't read comics.Why I Reread This Book: I've read this in its entirety at least three times, and probably dipped into it more than that.
  • Bunga Mawar
    Baru kali ini baca Yojimbo. Agak2 ajaib, hihi... masak kelinci jadi samurai :p
  • Brian
    The consistent quality of this series just blows my mind. There's always something new and unexpected happening, but the tone and voice of the book remain level.
  • Eric Mikols
    Another great collection. A bit slower and low key from previous volumes, but still a joy to read. I hope I have an excuse to reread these books all over again someday.
  • Dru
    Another great volume of Usagi from Stan Sakai.
