Path of the Assassin
Volume 11: Hikuma Castle
While warlord Ieyasu Tokugawa moves across the final battlefields of Japan's warring clans toward a nation's future under one ruler, his faithful ninja retainer Hattori Hanzō, steps into a trap set by a female ninja from a competing warlord's clan. But this is no ordinary trap. What will ensue is a battle of wits and weapons, of pain and pleasure, of sex and death. And should Hanzō fall, his master's future could die with him!
Created by legendary Lone Wolf and Cub creators Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima, Path of the Assassin is adult manga at its most challenging—violent, complex, and boldly erotic.
