The return of Hyakurin! Rin continues to live in her family's abandoned döjö, fretting over Manji's absence and disturbed by her odd visitors, Döa and Isaku. Hyakurin's arrival is a relief, and the two ladies set out to search for their missing friends, starting with Giichi. This fan-favorite, bald-and-bespectacled warrior has been missing for quite a while. After the death of his son and the dissolution of the Mugai-ryü, does Giichi even want to be found? Meanwhile, in a horrible prison under Edo castle, Doc Burando continues to write his medical opus, On the Perfection of Anatomy, and several more unlucky convicts become unwilling participants in the demented doctor's experiments. This issue also features the return of Hiroaki Samura's absurd and hilarious "Biography," with rare, accompanying Samura pinups!
