It may be a bit cruel, but I guess in a series full of pretty graphic fighting scenes, Shira's demise definitely is worth mentioning. He is almost cut in half lengthways and then systematically dismembered by the heroes, until he can move hardly more than his mouth. Then he is devoured by wolves. And, thanks to the Kessen-chu, still alive to witness it. As if that wasn't enough, the bastard actually seems to kinda enjoy it. A befitting for one of the most iconic monstrosities in the history of seinen.
