Volume 8 last edited by jazz1987 on 11/14/18 04:56AM View full history

Yagyu Retsudo’s failure to stop Ogami Itto has brought an ultimatum from the shugun: kill the Lone Wolf or face execution. But Yagyu will not go forth empty handed. To aid his cause, the shugun places the Firewatchers—his own elite bodyguards—under Yagyu’s command! Collects three stories from Lone Wolf and Cub Volume 17, all of volume 18, and two stories from volume 19.

672 pages, value priced.
