    "When we talk about an assassin manga, Lone Wolf and Cub will always be my top pick. It was published a long time ago but its story never fades until now. "

    "Assassin manga often uses female as the main character and this is why Arachnid is the best manga for me. You should also read its sequel Caterpillar if you want to know more about Alice. 😉"

    "There are some explicit scenes so I recommend this to older readers. If you're going to focus on the storyline, there are some similarities with the movie John Wick. "
