This review is from: The Book of Ninja (Hardcover)
This is the first publication of the Bansenshukai (Ohara Version) that has been translated into English.
Mr Cummins and Ms Minami have done an excellent job, the writing is concise and easy to understand with a western, modern mind - take note that this has all been translated into English from Old Japanese, something that is not easy to do!
The book itself is very well made and has a decent spine, which is great as it is a large book and has many, many pages. It WILL take you a time to read through it all so having a decent spine is great as we don't want those pages to come out!
This book, alongside the Shoninki & Shinobi Hiden (Ninpiden), plus Iga & Koka Ninja skills will make sure that any true Ninjutsu enthusiast will get the most knowledge and learning done that is possible.
