Comments: Kuniyoshi’s Heroes of Suikoden series is one of the most outstanding series ever created by this artist. The Chinese epic “108 Heroes of the Popular Suikoden All Told” is illustrated by Kuniyoshi where he depicts 75 of the 108 Chinese Heroes. Kojoso Jisen is idle their. He pillages graves and steals dogs and fowl. He has the ability to jump from ground to rooftop. In this scene Kojoso climbs to a tree top and waits for a chance to steal the iron smith Jonei’s suit of armor.
