The Demon King's Last Stand
Hi Bloggyworld - so, yeah, it's obvious at this point MSCED isn't exactly going to work out right now. I thought it could work but then senior year happened. Whoops!
Anyways, onto bigger and better things - here's my latest piece in my senior thesis samurai showdown series - "The Demon King's Last Stand" - in this myth, a famed warrior named Raiko and his band of 5 men try to attack the king of the Oni in his sleep, but as soon as Raiko's sword strikes his neck, the head flies up into the air, spews smoke and fire from his nostrils, for one final attack. Raiko strikes the head in the air, and that, as they say was that. They take this big ugly head as a trophy and it's a happy day for everyone (except the Demon King)
