dragons got claws!

(no subject)

Yakumo Tatsu 1 took me two days. Vol 2 got finished in an evening. And yes, it's a fast fun read. Alas, IIRC the first two tanks are the most atmospheric-- the brooding wooded mountains of Yamane, the suffocating past of Kyoto-- grudges and ancient wrongs piling up in the unmoving air of those two valley locations. Now we're in Tokyo, out the Chuu-ou line in... Kunitachi, is it? and the mangaka is having a harder time making me believe in ancient grudges lingering here where the winds blow off the Musashi plains.
