    Usagi Yojimbo Saga Book 8 collects #139-158 of Usagi Yojimbo volume 3 plus stories from Usagi Yojimbo Color Special #5. In this volume, Usagi Yojimbo battles a Kappa, learns how soy sauce is made, fights a dickhead Spanish swordsman, teams up with Inspector Ishida, and learns the chilling secret of the Hell Screen, among other things. It is a delight. Stan Sakai's cartoony yet intricate style continues to impress, even after all these issues.

In this volume, Usagi Yojimbo battles a Kappa, learns how soy sauce is made, fights a dickhead Spanish swordsman, teams up with Inspector Ishida, and learns the chilling secret of the Hell Screen, among other things. It is a delight. Stan Sakai's cartoony yet intricate style continues to impress, even after all these issues. He conveys tremendous emotion with just a few strokes of the pen and brush. No one would blame him at this point if he starting skimping on the backgrounds, having illustrated Usagi's adventures for almost forty years at this point, but there is no skimping to be found. The stories are a pleasant mix. There are mysteries, ghost stories, adventure stories, and poignant moments. Sakai weaves Japanese culture from days gone by seamlessly into the story, making things like the creation of soy sauce and the practice of ubasute integral to tales rather than shoehorning in some interesting bit of research. "Carl Barks with ninja" is a good way to describe it. This volume exemplifies why I love the series so much. If I had to strain to find something to complain about, it would be that Gen and Jotaro weren't in it but I'm sure we haven't seen the last of either character. Stan Sakai is a modern master and Usagi Yojimbo Saga Book 8 is another collection of reasons why. Five out of five stars.

    Ósme zbiorcze wydanie przygód Usagiego, zbiera historie pierwotnie wydane w tomikach 29-33. Obecnie autor wydał 35 części, więc już prawie jesteśmy na bieżąco. W księdze tej mamy do czynienia ze zbiorem trzech opowieści: „Dwieście posążków Jizo”, „Złodzieje i szpiedzy” oraz „Piekielne malowidło”, pośród których każdy powinien znaleźć coś ciekawego dla siebie. W pierwszej historii los ponownie łączy ścieżkę Usagiego i inspektora Ishidy. Będą oni próbowali rozwiązać zagadkę tajemniczego morderstwa. Ósme zbiorcze wydanie przygód Usagiego, zbiera historie pierwotnie wydane w tomikach 29-33. Obecnie autor wydał 35 części, więc już prawie jesteśmy na bieżąco. W księdze tej mamy do czynienia ze zbiorem trzech opowieści: „Dwieście posążków Jizo”, „Złodzieje i szpiedzy” oraz „Piekielne malowidło”, pośród których każdy powinien znaleźć coś ciekawego dla siebie. W pierwszej historii los ponownie łączy ścieżkę Usagiego i inspektora Ishidy. Będą oni próbowali rozwiązać zagadkę tajemniczego morderstwa. Fabuła rozdziału swoim klimatem dość mocno przypomina klasykę powieści Agathy Christie. Sakai łączy tutaj nieźle napisaną tajemnicę z należytą porcją widowiskowości. Obok tego w rozdziale nie zabrakło również treści odnoszącej się do historii/legend Japonii. Mamy więc tutaj okazję zapoznać się między innymi z komiksową wariacją legendy o lodowych posłańcach czy poznać tradycyjny sposób wytwarzania sosu sojowego (Shoyu). W rozdziale zatytułowanym Złodzieje i szpiedzy powracają dobrze znane fanom serii postacie. Są to złodziejka Kitsune i Chizu z klanu ninja, ich pojawienie się oznacza dla Usagiego jedno – kolejne poważne tarapaty. Nie zabraknie więc mocnej akcji, solidnej porcji świetnego humoru oraz kolejnych nawiązań do legend czy wierzeń dawnej Japonii (między innymi wodne demony Kappa). Najdłuższą i zdecydowanie najciekawszą historią zawartą w ósmym tomie, jest to co można znaleźć w rozdziale Tajemnica piekielnego malowidła. Sakai serwuje nam tutaj mroczną porcję tajemnic, które powinny zaciekawić czytelnika. Akcja fabuły dzieje się w odciętej od świata świątyni, gdzie uwięzieni tam goście muszą odkryć sprawcę straszliwej zbrodni i zmierzyć z się z legendą opętanego malowidła. Nie jest to oczywiście mistrzowski poziom grozy czy tajemnicy, na pewno jednak cała historia zapewnia solidną dawkę przyjemnej rozrywki. Nie zabrakło tutaj również należytej porcji walk, która na pewno zwrócą uwagę fanów samurajskich klimatów. https://popkulturowykociolek.pl/recen...

The alternating notes of Sakai’s storytelling continue in perfection; there is no sense of endings to be found however. Among these stories are bitter twists of fate that seem to thwart the honorable choice, roundabout justice as fate visits to many characters at once, and somber, heartbreaking observations on the many forms of strength and nobility. My favorite highlight is the meeting of Chizu and Kitsune, two of the headstrong women that shape Usagi’s world. Their interactions bring mounting anxiety to Usagi.

    Sakai’s work is consistently delightful. Would’ve liked to see more continuations of older, long running plot threads but everything here is still top-tier.

    Very enjoyable stories and much more convenient than pulling the comic from my collection to read.

    If there’s a better story about 17th century soy sauce production, I’ve not read it.
