1-4. Yuki no Touge
In the end of the Sengoku period, the great daimyo family of Satake is driven away from Hitachi-no-kuni to Dewa-no-kuni after the Sekigahara battle. They plan to build a new castle there, but the head of the family, Yoshinobu Satake, listens more to the young vassals' advice than that of the experienced chief vassals'.

It's Sengoku period. Haruna, a daughter of a farmer family, gets herself raped and her family killed by hooligan warriors in the chaos of war. Using the funds she got of the Go stones stolen from the warriors, she joins the dojo of the famous Nobutsuna Kamiizumi to learn kenjutsu in order to get revenge on the warriors. There, she meets Kamiizumi's apprentice Bungorou Hikita, who starts to teach her the art of the sword with the shinai that Kamiizumi has just invented...

Really enjoying Parasyte -the maxim- I got the idea to check out the other works from the same author in the hope of finding something very good.
This one volume contains two independent quite short stories set in feudal Japan.

Yuki no Touge:
Pretty slow story. Kind of reads like a historical record but it is quite interesting to follow the clan building their new castle and an intrigue.
Tsurugi no Mai:
After a girl gets raped and her family is killed she takes up swordsmanship in order to get revenge. Since the story is very short there it feels rushed and stays a simple revenge story. read more

I'm a sucker for all things related to the samurai, but this manga left me with a decidedly "meh" impression.

You may have read that the samurai came to an end in the Satsuma Rebellion of 1877, but in truth they many 'deaths' and 'rebirths' before that. The samurai class served many different roles throughout Japanese history, ranging from tax collectors, to bureaucrats, to soldiers, to military aristocrats. These two stories deal with samurai caught in the culture shift as the Sengoku period became the Edo period.

The first 'Snow Ridge' is the more interesting of the two. It deals with a clan forced to relocate read more

This manga is short, so do not expect some crazy character development. Both of the stories it tells are satisfying dramatizations of real historical events. The second story was particularly satisfying. For its length, this is a great manga.

The art is well done, and for someone who doesn't already know the history, this was both good entertainment and somewhat informative. To be fully honest I wrote this paragraph because the previous one wasn't long enough for me to submit.

Okay it's still not long enough. The art is also well done and in the first half, the plot was focused on sticking to one's decisions read more
