In the spirit of the season, please join us as we roast Dark Horse's 'historically accurate' "47 Ronin" #1.

One man's humble attempt to stop the insanity.

Thanks for this - interesting stuff. What a shame they had to go and say it was heavily researched and highly accurate and whatever. If they'd just said it was fictionalized and based more on the legend than on historical research, it could have been ok...

Yeah, it would have been. Like I mentioned in the review, there was one segment I enjoyed and found very touching (even though, of course, it never happened). Based on it I can see why people would enjoy Sakai's straight fiction work.
