MANGA SAMURAI! Samura Wakayama is a wandering Ronin in search of a gigantic technologically corrupted eyeball. As Samura travels the City of Gears he has become entangled in one strange plot after another as he slowly discovers true purpose in his quest. With each new sighting of the ominous eyeball, Samura uncovers a hidden underworld manipulating the Gear and it’s denizens.
Beyond coincidence, the Samurai has discovered an unusual connection between the whereabouts of his bizarre foe and an increasing amount of computerized corruption. It would appear that a diabolical society has capitalized on the recent technological epidemics and worse, Samura may be directly responsible for the groups existence.
As a young Samurai, Samura showed immense potential.Studying to be a Guardian under his Grandfather, Master Kazuo's instruction, Like his Grand Father, the Head Guardian, and his father the late Guardian Kojima, it would appear that the young Samura would proudly perpetuate his legendary lineage.
Unfortunately a terrible incident occurred during one of the practices and the young Samurai, displaying the most amazing strength for a boy of his age, accidentally injured his mentor. With a magnificent thrust, Samura excavated his Grand fathers left eye, rendering the elder Guardian unfit for his duties. Within months Samura’s grand father had displayed increasingly devious behaviours and eventually vanished from the city without a trace. It was at this same time that the giant technological eyeball began taunting the city.
At first it was merely a symbolic retribution that inspired Samura to forsake his family and position as he vowed, against his advisors, to bring down the eye. In his mind Samura had resolved that in order to make up for destroying a good eye, he could defeat a grotesque one. The strange hands of fate have since revealed otherwise. With each new encounter, Samura has been able to draw unusual connections between his Grandfathers disappearance, the Omni-present underworld and the appearance of the ominously technological giant evil eyeball.
