Description

The Guin Saga is epic heroic fantasy in the same vein as Robert E. Howard's Conan, the Barbarian. More than a hundred books strong and growing, the saga has sold more than twenty-five million copies in Japan. Vertical will publish the first five installments that comprise "The Marches Episode" arc. Guin is a mighty warrior, who cannot remember his past. His only clue is a leopard mask mystically attached to his head. Joined by the royal twins of Parros, Remus and Rinda; Suni, the simian-girl; and Istavan, the mercernary; our hero must cross the treacherous River Kes and journey into the badlands of Nospherus, where unthinkable dangers lurk. In hot pursuit is a Mongauli army of 15,000, led by the beautiful and dangerous General Amnelis.

Review quote

"A rousing tale of intrepid heroes, horrid villains and wicked supernatural creatures." -Publishers Weekly "The Guin Saga was the most [inspiration for Berserk]. I started reading it in junior high and I'm still reading the new volume every month." -Berserk creator Kentaro Miura "This is classic fantasy at its best." -Book Sense (Fall 2003 Science Fiction and Fantasy Top Ten) "Readers should be warned that once you start this journey, it will be nearly impossible to leave it unfinished." - SFRevu "Japan's answer to The Lord of the Rings." -The Globe and Mail "Kaoru Kurimoto manages the flurry of situations being set up and resolved like the trick of a putting a hand on a table with fingers spread out, then stabbing a blade between the outstretched digits. The speed and coordination is that amazing." -Scott Green, Ain't It Cool News
