    Very interesting...

    I have three prints that look remarkable like these two. I have tried to have the writing translated but no one could read it - it is too old. But the little inserts and general style look like these pics.

    I'd like to get them translated or at least know the story they tell...any ideas how to proceed?

    Interesting also from a sword arts perspective, as the main murder weapon of choice seems to be a sword or tanto. Pretty graphic too.
