Today's post is another request from the shoutbox. Hikaru asked me to do a post featuring Hjikata Mamoru, a character from the manga Shi ga Futari wo Wakatsu made, otherwise known as Until Death Do Us Part. After checking out more of the art, I thought the other guys should get some love too.
DOUBLE-S does the artwork for this series with Hiroshi Takashige providing the story. It's an action/adventure manga with a young girl who can see the future and a blind swordsman (the aforementioned Hjikata).
I haven't read this manga yet, but it looks like a cool series. As far as I know, it has yet to be licensed for release in America. As with a lot of good action manga, it's not a matter of if it's licensed so much as when.
Thanks to Hikaru for the request. There have been a lot of good ones lately. Please keep them coming in the shoutbox, comments, or online.
