    1. Possibly the best of the Usagi Yojimbo collections. For those who have never read "UY" before, I'd recommend starting with book 2, but book 7 is a masterpiece containing several important milestones in the continuity of this series.Included here are many of Stan Sakai's best loved characters, including the intoduction of the thieving street performer, Kitsune, a classic comedic flashback to the days of young Usagi and his teach, Katsuichi-sensei, a multipart story revealing the sad youth of Gen [...]


    2. Possibly the best of the Fantagraphics volumes. I don't own any more Usagi Yojimbo, so for now this one is my last. Waiting for the omnibus to come out to see what it contains. I would love to read the Mirage and the Dark Horse series though when I get the chance.The main reason I like this one the best is the chapter dedicated to Ino's return to the series. He is now married happily to a peasant woman, but badly hurt from an arrow. Luckily Usagi and Gen accidentally find Ino and his wife cottag [...]


    3. I am starting to doubt that I will read a volume of UY that I can find any fault with. Sakai is just that good. The last Fantagraphics volume is no exception. I wonder if I can get non-comics readers to try this series


    4. As a series Usagi Yojimbo builds and builds. With Gen's Story, Sakai's art has improved—the writing, too—and the characters and their relationships have developed considerably.


    5. Usagi Yojimbo, on the surface is a simple concept. Anthropomorphic animals in 16th century Edo Japan - with the narrative centering around a "Long Eared Samurai", a Rabbit - the eponymous Usagi of the title. Usagi,literally means Rabbit in Japanese and Yojimbo refers to "Bodyguard". Rabbit Bodyguard. It mixes several references to the Samurai films of Kurosawa with a deliberate homage to the great samurai swordsman Miyamoto Musashi while treading its own unique path. There really isn't another c [...]


    6. I really liked this book it's a lot of fun and gen might be a jerk but he has his reasons for it when you see how he grew up it makes sense why he acts that way always chasing money and bounty's and the part were he crys after finding out the fate of his father knowing the swords the only thing he has to remember him by



    7. Kitsune je skvostná ukázka, jak na malém prostoru nabídnout hodně zábavné muziky a ještě představit a charakterově definovat novou postavu v sérii. Gaki je ukázka toho, že dobrý nápad nestačí, pokud ho překlopíte v druhé polovině ve zbytečnou skopičinu. Přerušený rituál je melancholicky posmutnělá duchařina o pravé duši samuraje a je právem označována za jeden z absolutních vrcholů celé série. Kresbou i scénářem. Spletitý uzel je pár stránková "výp [...]


    8. "Usagi Yojimbo: Gen's Story" (volume 7) was just as good as the other volumes I've previously read in the series. Of course, as the series progresses, there was more depth added to Miyamoto Usagi's character. But the most important character in this graphic novel was not Miyamoto Usagi, but Gennosuke, a ronin rhino. Another character, who I thought was important throughout this graphic novel, and possibly important in future storylines, was Kitsune, a career thief. Overall, there was more light [...]


    9. While Volume 6 would have served as a fitting finale to Stan Sakai's first set of Usagi Yojimbo adventures, Volume 7 is a welcome addition to the canon, with Sakai penning a few more stories featuring some of his most beloved supporting characters. The Gen and Ino stories are the clear highlights of this collection and, in retrospect, tales that needed to be told before the Usagi Yojimbo tales came to a close. The one complaint I have is that some of the panels look more sketchy than others. It' [...]


    10. A five-star volume thanks to a very strong collection of short stories, and of course Gen's origin story.Gen: Gen's origin story. I am really enjoying Sakai's storytelling.Broken Ritual: Probably the best short story that I've encountered during my Usagi Yojimbo reading. Aragones' contribution is glorious. Love it.The Last Ino Story: Very satisfying conclusion to the story of a great character, Zato Ino.Kitsune + The Return of Kitsune: Great introduction to Kitsune.


    11. Dans ce tome, on décovure certains aspects du passé de Gen, l'irascible rhinocéros qui a baptisé Usagi de son surnom de Yojimbo (le garde du corps).Et le moins qu'on puisse dire, c'est que son histoire est au moins aussi torturée que celle d'Usagi, avec son lot de dettes d'honneur incompréhensibles et de combats perdus d'avance. Bref, superbe.Et en bonus, ce tome se termine sur une belle histoire d'amitié entre Usagi, Gen et Zato-Ino, le fameux cochon aveugle.


    12. Def. my fave volume so far. Bushido,the code of the samurai, is an interesting belief system and way of life, but I've always been skeptical of it. Is this way of living realistic? Gen's Story provides a character that challenges this system, basically saying, "This is fucking stupid." It is awesome.


    13. Also read in the wake of July 4th (on the same day as that last INVISIBLES volume no less)I recall this one had lots of stories about Gen (duh). That lovable rogue rhinoceros "frenemy" of Usagi's, he always makes the stories more interesting, more violent, and more hilarious. Good on ya, Gen.




    14. Još jedna izvrsna samurajska knjiga. Nekoliko kratkih priča o prijateljstvu i časti povezanih u cjelinu.
