Samurai and manga are two great tastes that go great together. The samurai have been the protagonists of popular and critically-acclaimed series for almost fifty years. Below we're ranking the best samurai manga of all time, including both classic and newer titles. Lone Wolf and Cub was one of the first manga to be translated and served to a western audience. Its success was a harbinger of things to come. There have been other even more successful series since it paved the way, like Rurouni Kenshin, Vagabond, and many more. Is one of those titles the top samurai manga? Is there another series that should stand atop the samurai manga list? You decide.
