If you are looking at this you are probably familiar with this anime. Maybe you know there is also a manga which takes the blood and bone, bordering realistic theme of this universe, into even greater hype domains.

My favorite manga, my favorite anime, my favorite peace of literature, my favorite philosophical discourse about nature of being A MAN.

Its wonderful in so many ways, and it speaks on many levels. Be prepared to set new PR's and practice sardonic smile in front of a mirror. Be prepared to yell in Japanese for no reason whatsoever (sub > dub). Be prepared to look into the distance and remember ancient arrow catching techniques. Be prepared to start overeating and challenging animals to duels.

1000/10 Would watch again, and AM watching again. hahahah PS: there's a new season out, 2018 production. Its awesome!
