Best Samurai Manga

Samurai are those who follow bushido, the classical Japanese warrior code, as a way of life, and usually hone their skill in combat to make their way in the world or perfect themselves. Characters in a Samurai manga may be in service to a liege lord, or ronin types who serve none but themselves. Common themes include service, honor, strength, and one-on-one combat or battles, often with blades.
