review 1: Really enjoyed this one. The artwork is great but... Stan Sakai, so you should know it's great already! It was interesting to get to hear about/see his creative process. I had a little trouble keeping track of characters in the story - it seemed like there were a lot! I wasn't familiar with the story of the 47 Ronin and really appreciated the background information and some of the ways the story has evolved over time. Great book!
review 2: It's the classic Japanese historical story about a guy who was disgraced and executed, and his 47 retainers who fought to avenge his honor.

So good that I had to stop reading for the day. Simple, pure, powerful.
Excellent rendition of the tale of the 47 Ronin.
To know this story...is to know Japan.
