Hey wait, isn't Ryu supposed to be holding a sword in this picture???
PREVIOUSLY ON CYRIL READS NINJA GAIDEN: After traveling halfway around the world to seek vengeance on his father's death, 13 year old Ryu Hayabusa has suddenly realized that he's having a very bad day. Within the last few hours he's been kicked off of a college campus, he got in a fight with some dude at a local bar, he's been shot, he let his only lead get injured, he nearly died by falling out of a mine cart, he accidentally lost the only statue standing in the way of total world destruction and, to make matters worse, he is now falling to his death again. What is our hero going to do? Will he be able to get those statues back before the whole world goes up in flames? And will the evil Jacquio think of something other than having Ryu fall to his death? These questions and more will be answered as we continue our journey into the heart of Ninja Gaiden!
You've managed to survive the first seven episodes and now you want to know what all this is leading to. You'll be happy to know that after weeks of playing it safe, Ryu is about to come face to face with a boss or two. And that's not all, we also find that Ryu is a lot more paranoid this time around, unsure of who he can trust. But there is one thing that he still believes in ... and you're never going to guess what it is. Find out now when we journey into the heart of Ninja Gaiden. This is episode 8, chapters 15 and 16. After tonight there are only five weeks to go until the exciting conclusion of Cyril Reads Ninja Gaiden!
In case you have yet to listen to the first seven episodes, I suggest you go back and do that now (I'll wait). To everybody else that is caught up I proudly offer you Cyril Reads Ninja Gaiden chapters fifteen and sixteen ...
