Some marks to area of series cartouche, otherwise very good, full size with strong colour.
'Honcho Suikoden Goyu Happyakunin no Hitori' (800 Heroes of Japan's Water Margin, One by One)
Yorimasa’s retainer, Hayata Tadazumi, grapples with the Nue in the midst of a thunderstorm. A nue is a legendary creature found in Japanese folklore. It is described as having the head of a monkey, the body of a tanuki, the legs of a tiger, and a snake for a tail. According to the legend, a nue can transform into a black cloud and fly.
Considered one of the finest designs of the series.
