Pure Virtue vs. Vice Can one survive without corrupting the other? Ultimo and Vice are Karakuri Doji, the mechanical embodiment of pure good and pure evil, devoid of human emotions that can cloud one's judgment. Their purpose: to battle to the death to prove once and for all whether good or evil is the most powerful force in the universe. Just when Jealousy and Rune get Yamato in their nasty clutches, his ancient self awakens to save the day. But does the bandit Yamato from nine hundred years ago have the same priorities and desires as our modern-day unlikely hero Yamato? And even if he can keep his mind on the business of stopping the Hundred Machine Funeral, Desir--now with a comely human accomplice--has a plan to sidetrack him yet again.
About the Author
Unconventional author/artist Hiroyuki Takei began his career by winning the Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize (named after the famous artist of the same name). After working as an assistant to famed artist Nobuhiro Watsuki, Takei debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997 with Butsu Zone, an action series based on Buddhist mythology. His multicultural adventure manga Shaman King, which debuted in 1998, became a hit and was adapted into an anime TV series. His new series Ultimo (Karakuri DAji Ultimo) is currently being serialized in the U.S. in SHONEN JUMP. Takei lists Osamu Tezuka, American comics and robot anime among his many influences."
