Yokai are the monsters, demons, and spirits of Japanese folklore, such as the shape-changing kitsune, the obakeneko demon cats, and the evil oni ogres. Usagi faces all these and more when a desperate woman begs for his help in finding her kidnapped daughter. Tracing the abducted girl deep into the forest, Usagi finds it haunted by creatures of Japanese legend and discovers that they are amassing for a great raid on the countryside! Fortunately, Usagi is joined by Sasuke the Demon Queller, who is also fighting to prevent the invasion, but things aren't always as they seem - especially when dealing with the supernatural! * The rabbit ronin turned twenty-five, and Dark Horse celebrated with the first-ever Usagi Yojimbo original graphic novel, fully hand-painted, written, and lettered by creator Stan Sakai! * Completely self-contained story. * Usagi Yojimbo is a 2009 Eisner Award nominee for Best Continuing Series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sehr schönes Comic komplett in Farbe 20. Dezember 2009
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Als langjähriger Usagi Yojimbo Leser war ich etwas überrascht, dieses Buch als Harcover zu finden. Nachdem ich es angekommen ist, war ich sehr von der sehr guten Qualität überrascht gewesen.

Usagi Yojimbo folgt auf seiner Wanderschaft einem Licht in den Wald hinein. Dort entdeckt er eine trauernde Mutter, die ihre Tochter von Unholden und Monstern bedroht sieht. Usagi zieht los, um die Tochter zu retten und findet sich alsbald einer unzähligen Armee von Geistern und Gespenstern wieder, manche lustig und andere furchterregend. Bevor diese ihn fast übermannen können, trifft er Sasuke, den Dämonenjäger. Gemeinsam bieten die beiden dem Dämonenheer die Stirn.

Das Buch selbst ist sehr gut gebunden und passt perfekt in die Reihe der Usagi Yojimbo Hardcover Bücher rein. Auf dem Cover ist Usagi etwas hervorgehoben in 3D (ich kenne leider nicht den Fachbegriff für diese Technik). Die Seiten sind hochwertig und erwecken die mit Wasserfarben kolorierten Comicseiten zum Leben.

Eine faszinierende Geschichte, in hochwertiger Qualität. Da die Geschichten von Stan Sakai immer sehr gut recherchiert sind, eignet sich dieses Buch auch als Geschenk für Japan-Liebhaber, die nicht so viel mit Comics zu tun haben. Preis-Leistungsverhältnis sehr gut.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Introduction to the World of Usagi Yojimbo 13. November 2009
Von shaxper - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Yokai is the Japanese word for spirits/ghouls, and that nicely summarizes this beautiful 58 page hardbound graphic novel in which our main character, Miyamoto Usagi, a samurai warrior bunny from an anthropomorphic version of Japan's 17th century, finds himself battling an odd lot of ghosts and goblins seeking to enslave the world.

The artwork and water colors are brilliant, the action is abundant, and the tone absolutely delivers in the fine Usagi Yojimbo tradition. It is, at times, absurdly silly, cute, exciting, dramatic, heroic and even tragic. Sakai blends all of this together seamlessly into only 58 pages. It's a rich adventure that puts you through enough powerful emotions to more than warrant the $14.95 price tag, plus it's one heck of a handsome volume.

Extras include an in-depth interview with Stan Sakai about the making of Yokai, including samples of artwork in their early stages, a brief summary of Stan's career thus far, and some very nice Usagi artwork inside the covers, on the title page, and a small piece on the last page. I particularly enjoy that last depiction of Usagi having a conniption fit. Quite cute.

All in all, this is a handsome volume containing one heck of a quintessential Usagi story that any beginner to the series could easily appreciate. Plus it features my all time favorite supporting character in Usagi's Universe, Sasuke The Demon Queller, Sakai's answer to Doctor Strange, only more bad-ass. Still, the volume is family friendly and will easily cater to people of all age groups and interests. Whether or not you're a fan of comics, furry animals, or Feudal Japanese culture, Yokai can't help but impress.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love it! 22. April 2014
Von Sherlyn Ann Kennedy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I completely love this series! I first saw usagi miyamoto on an
episode of teenage mutant ninja turtles and immediately adored him. Now I can't stop buying every book on miyamoto-San I come across! This one in particular is great.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting and well-drawn story 5. Juni 2015
Von Joseph M. Reninger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Miyamoto Usagi is a traveling warrior (the "Yojimbo" part of the title). He's wandering through a dark forest when he comes upon some monsters and ghosts from Japanese folklore (the "Yokai" part of the title). After an initial run-in with a fox-fire, Usagi finds a beautiful, well-dressed woman who is crying. Her daughter has been kidnapped by one of the spirits and taken deeper into the woods. This particular night is a sort of Halloween, when all the spirits get together to cause trouble for the living. Usagi promises to find the girl and return her. He soon discovers that this night is extra-special--the Yokai want to use the girl to raise a terrible demon who will bring about the end of the world! His adventure leads him into many fights with the Yokai as he joins an old friend, Sasuke the Demon Queller (just the sort of person he needs on a night like this), to save the world.

This story is a twenty-fifth anniversary special edition of Usagi Yojimbo, so it is in full color and is a stand-alone story. I haven't read any other stories but I had an easy time following and enjoying this story. The monsters are interesting in their bizarre and quirky way (much like the monsters in Hellboy stories). The action and humor are well-executed. The art is watercolor, which is unusual for graphic novels but suits the story, giving it enough other-worldliness to make it fascinating and unique. I am definitely curious to read more adventures of this character.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Great! 13. Mai 2010
Von romevi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the first time I read Stan Sakai's standalone graphic novels, and I enjoyed every page of it! His use of watercolors is absolutely brilliant, especially considering he never took any classes in that style of painting.

This novel follows the same Usagi we know and love, and he bumps into his queer comrade Sasuke (the demon hunter). For those familiar with Sakai's stories, you know you're in for a strange and entertaining ride whenever Usagi clashes ways with Sasuke. It's as if Stan brings out his craziest ideas whenever Sasuke shows his face!

The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I felt it was rather short. Sure, the story was engrossing from start to finish, the watercolors were done really well, and it's a great introduction into the series, but I felt that it was as long as a single chapter from one of the main series' volumes, which are offered for the same price. I suppose they kept the price equal to a volume because it's a special hardcover edition that's fully in color, but I still felt that it could've been longer.
Nevertheless, given that it took Stan Sakai three months to complete this book, I'm sure he gave it all he had.

With that it mind, it's a must-have for those already familiar with the stories, or a must-read for a beginner (or even after reading the entire series to date).
4.0 von 5 Sternen A decent tribute. 20. Juli 2012
Von para - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a stand alone 55 page story written to commemorate Usagi Yojimbo's 25th Anniversary. Usagi follows the trail of an abducted child and stumbles upon an encounter with monsters, demons and spirits on a scale he's not ready for. The story is pretty light and not quite up to the standards I expect from Usagi Yojimbo, but it is ok and features a fan favorite supporting character. Action and numerous pages of attacking yokai are the order of the day here.

The art, on the other hand, is a real treat. It is the usual fantastic base art by Sakai, but is brought to another level by being painted in full color (as opposed to the normal black and white the series uses.

At the end of the book is a 4 page interview with Sakai who goes over the art process and gives thoughts on the series.

While the story itself isn't really great, the other elements elevate this to being the fitting tribute it was intended to be. A good pick up for fans of the series.
