Demonic Resurrection Chapter 11 END
Well, what a ride this was, and it's a story that holds a special place in my heart, ever since I saw the movie on it many years ago. It's a great supernatural Sci Fi epic and it's a damn shame so little of Yamada's novels have been translated into English. The only one I'm aware is the Koga Ninja Scrolls, or Basilisk as it's also known.
Yamada never did adapt the first of Yamada's Jubei Yagyu Trilogy (perhaps because it's way more grounded in reality). This, however, one can read all on their own. Jubei is portrayed as a mischievous, if righteous and driven. The villains are a combination of monstrous, challenging and sympathetic in equal measure. There's history, action, fantasy and horror and great art as only Ishikawa can deliver.
Let's enjoy the end, guys...and now we really need help with editing. Cat's Eye and Clockers especially with Net absent. We could use the help with translating, too.
Well, all that said...enjoy the end of our epic
And the whole volume in one
EDIT: updated with new link!
