Little Bao is a Chinese farmer who experiences the harshest encounters with the foreign devils (westerners). Soon he learns how to fight back and he gets caught up in the bloody Boxer Rebellion, a fight to take back the China they once knew.  This manga explains an event in dreadful details, an event I have never heard about. Even though the gods may not be real, they breathe life into the Chinese people and the culture of the time. To enrich this story, make sure you read Saints", a parallel story to "Boxers" that is told from the opposite side, from the side of a Chinese woman converted to Christianity.
