Demonic Resurrection/Makai Tensho Chapter 1, Azumi Chapter 77, and 87 Clockers 26




Here's Azumi 77! 
In this chapter, Kinkaku and Ginkaku have taken the village...and we get a very unfortunate glimpse what happens when such vicious bandits take a town over. Kinkaku and Ginkaku (Or 'Gold Horn and Silver Horn') are based off a pair of demons in Journey to the West, one of the Four Great Novels of Chinese literature. I'd say the two in Azumi are just a ''bit'' more vile.

And Clockers 26!
Had a feeling it was time for this one...the overclocking continues

And...our new series, Demonic Resurrection, or Makai Tensho in Japanese. The original novel was written by the great Futaro Yamada, also known for Basilisk and The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls. Now we see it adapted by Ken Ishikawa himself!

The story takes place after the failed Shimabara Rebellion, led by Shiro Amakusa as a Christian uprising against the Shogunate. It ended...brutally, and Amakusa himself was executed.  However, dark forces are at work, and Amakusa returns from the grave...

And Demonic Resurrection won't stop there. Read on in Chapter 1! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

  3. Any plans for Yamada's other adaptations? The same duo behind Basilisk also worked on Juu - Ninpou Makai Tensei, which is scanned and looks interesting.
