Looks like it’s time for Ten Gai and the executioner to face off in this chapter of Thunderbolt Fantasy. It’s good to see them strut their stuff and battle it out in manga form. I strongly prefer this version over the puppet one as it’s shorter and adds a little more character to Ten Gai as they switched a little scene around. In the puppet version they had Kicho catch the executioner as he fell but in the manga version it’s Ten Gai who catches him and says all of Kicho’s dialog. I guess they did this to make him seem a little more sympathetic.
Oh and I hope you don’t mind the pun on page 128. I couldn’t resist.
