It’s time for a showdown as Norachiyo and his band of motley cats cross the sea in their quest to stop Abyhei. But without his sword, there’s not much Norachiyo can do.

FINAL VOLUME!
Book 4
The bold new cat samurai action series from the creator of Shaman King!

     In medieval Japan, a bell hanging on the collar is a sign that a cat has a master. Norachiyo’s bell hangs from his katana sheath, but he is nonetheless a stray — a ronin. This one-eyed cat samurai travels across a dishonest world, cutting through pretense and deception with his blade.
Book 3
HONOR AMONG FELINES

Stray cat samurai Norachiyo wants nothing more than to leave his cruel past behind and live his nine lives in peace, but there are some cats he just can’t get off his tail. After joining forces with an unlikely duo—the son of a catnip drug lord and his fellow feline warrior-in-training—Norachiyo comes face-to-face with an old foe: Shiriya Abyhei, the malicious member of the secret police who’s been in pursuit of Norachiyo from the very start. Can the three samurai make it out with their tails intact, or is it purr-tains for them…?
 
Book 2
RONIN IN THE RAW
 
Proud stray-samurai, Norachiyo, continues his journey to find his peace while escaping his haunting past. Along the way, he’s crossed paths with a few ne’er-do-well cats and now his shadow is trailed by a clowder of fiendish felines out for blood. The secret police, a molly ninja, and a self-righteous pretty boy are just a few of those looking to take on Norachiyo. But can they prevail against a cat who once slew a “god”?

MEWSHIDO
 
In medieval Japan, it’s a hard life for a stray cat. Every day is filled with struggles and prejudice, from oppression by fellow cats working for cruel masters to extortion by catnip druglords. But being a stray also means incredible pride and independence. The wandering samurai Norachiyo has no master, though he still wears the telltale bell of a cat who has a “person.” This rogue warrior travels across Japan, protecting the weak and cutting down those who have forgotten the virtues of being a stray – all with unrivaled swordsmanship. Although Norachiyo leaves little trace but his fearsome reputation, this enigmatic warrior has made plenty of enemies who are more than willing to get their claws on his head. Will Norachiyo’s past catch up with him, or can he spend his nine lives in freedom?
