Editors Note
Note An extravagant adventure fantasy in the samurai tradition, GOJOE: THE SPIRIT WAR CHRONICLE is a special effects-filled joyride with that increasingly anomalous trait: a thoughtful story. Benkei is a former warrior who has become a Buddhist monk, but when the GoJoe Bridge turns into the scene of a massacre, with an unknown force beheading countless Heike soldiers, he receives the call to fight via a Sanskrit inscription that appears on his chest. He joins forces with an unlikely ally, Testukichi, a sword scavenger who robs corpses and has no use for Benkei's Buddhist tendencies. The two discover that their opponent is not a demon fulfilling a famous prophecy, as rumor would have it, but a fallen prince determined to reclaim his power. After the prince murders Benkei's superior monk, Benkei finds the strength to overcome his misgivings regarding violence and vanquish the enemy that menaces the GoJoe Bridge.
