Issen is a one-shot manga series written and illustrated by Aoko.
He only remembers the burning village, its denizens in a state of panic, and his father, with his last breath and trembling armor, saying "Run for your life, Issen."
Years have past since that incident, and Issen has followed his father's instructions. He has turned his back from his enemies over 36 times and counting. Each of his enemies are seeking only one thing: his "Jingi." Every person holds a Jingi inside them, a weapon of all shapes and sizes, ranging from katanas to guns. Will Issen be able to face his past and move forward to bring justice to the evil that bring chaos to his country?
