In medieval Japan, a bell hanging on the collar is a sign that a cat has a master. Norachiyo's bell hangs from his katana sheath, but he is nonetheless a stray - a ronin. This one-eyed cat samurai travels across a dishonest world, cutting through pretense and deception with his blade. A gritty historical action story, starring samurai cats, Nekogahara will appeal to fans of everything from Japanese-flavoured fantasy like Naruto (Viz Media) to more adult historical action like Lone Wolf and Cub (Dark Horse).show more
