The 47 ronin are samurai without master, him being forced to commit seppuku after violating a rule in the shogun palace.
The story, told also in movies and literature is in this case told as a graphic novel.
The book follows the death of Asano Naganori, happened because of Kira Yoshinaka, and the stories of his forty-seven samurai willing to avenge the injustice and to rehabilitate their master.
The story, which I did not know, is engaging; the structure chosen – the story is told by a third person who does not have part in the events – is well-built and allows a good development and a fine conclusion.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
* 47 Ronin by Stan Sakai – ★★★★☆
