Maboroshi (The Wizard), Chapter 41 - Incredible kabuki scene showing the wicked magician Nikki Danjo Naonori, who transformed himself into a giant rat in order to steal an incriminating scroll. The magician appears in a cloud of smoke as he returns to human form, frowning as he looks over his shoulder. He wears formal court robes, his long pants trailing onto the floor around him. A great expressive image of this famous kabuki character, with soft shading adding a sense of dimension to the smoke.
