This upload contains scans of the official Raijin Comics release of Nemuri Kyoshiro from the early 2000’s.

For those unaware, in the early 2000’s, before Viz released their shonen jump magazine in North America, there was another manga magazine publishing manga in North America called Raijin Comics. Raijin was a magazine published by Gutsoon! Entertainment and published series such as City Hunter, Fist of the Blue Sky, Baki, and Slam Dunk, among others. This publisher was originally spun off from the Japanese publisher coamix which itself was formed by the old school shonen jump legends tetsuo hara (fist of the north star) and tsukasa hojo (city hunter). 

Raijin Comics ran for 47 issues before becoming defunct. This was scanned by the Raijin Comics Preservation Squad and we are trying to scan and preserve as much of Raijin/Gutsoon’s manga releases in North America as we can.

Nemuri Kyoshiro’s search for a stolen bible has drawn him into a conspiracy to blackmail the heir-apparent ruler of Japan-
and, more immediately, a midnight duel with Sakuma Chugo, the sword of the master conspirator. Sakuma seemingly gains the upper hand against our blue-eyed hero before the illusion gives way to reveal the secret Christian convert for what he really is: a once masterful practitioner of the sword destroyed by an opium habit. The opium that Sakuma had hoped would give him an advantage prevents him from feeling a fatal strike. Now, with his lifeblood spilling over, Sakuma desperately looks for salvation and one last chance to strike Kyoshiro.
