Other Name: N.Y.の弁慶; New York no Benkei
Author: Mori Jinpachi, TANIGUCHI Jiro
Year of release: 2015
Manga doesnt get much more noir than this. Benkei is just another expatriate Japanese arist living in the Big Apple. Or so it appears. As there "diabolical hard-boiled stories" show, surfaces arent always what they seem. Flashbacks delve into sordid, secret past lives, and old scored, long festering, emerge without warning, asking to be settled. And Benkeis secret? Maybe its just that hes the only artist in town who isnt having fantasies of being a hitman-for-hire. He is one.
