“The master of life always lives his destiny as he chooses...”


Ex-SAS, Archeologist, part time lecturer, traveler, historian, Insurance agent; Taichi Hiragi Keaton is a Jack of all trades and a “master of life”. He is simple, intelligent, humble, and a moralistic goody-two shoes infused with the love of life and the possibilities it brings.

The show itself is an exact mirror reflection of its main character; a “Jack-of-all-trades” in that it touches a wide variety of genres and themes, from slice-of-life, romance, mystery to historical, war drama, thriller.

Recommendations

Their original mangas are made by the same author. They have kinda the same type of main character and the atmosphere of the stories are the same, with suspense and adventures.
After only watching one episode of Master Keaton, I could tell that Mushishi is similar.

They both have the slice of life style pace, and from what I hear it is kind of episodic. But you probably would have heard of Mushishi before this one.
