Synopsis

The story is set in a place very similar in appearance to Earth in the Edo period. However, Adachi (the mangaka) regularly reminds the reader all throughout the series that the setting is another planet in the distant future which just happens to look like Earth.

After the death of his mother, Shichimi sets out to join his step-brothers and -sister who live together in Karakuri Tenement, a place provided by the father they have never met. He finds out that each of them had different mothers (all of whom have died), but were fathered by the same man. Not long after Shichimi's arrival, the siblings decide to journey to visit the graves of each of their mothers. On this journey, they encounter many dangers.

Nijiiro Tougarashi is by far one of my favorite manga series ever.

Written by Adachi Misturu it is one of his best works, containing all of his staple elements:
- Believable Characters
- Great slapstick comedy
- An enjoyable progressing story arc
- Great romantic tension

It is also one of his more unusual works, with:
- More effort put into art

I had never heard of Niji Iro Tougarashi until I saw it on another site and began reading, because it was fantasy, and I'd heard good things about Mitsuru Adachi. I was pleasantly surprised to find an engrossing story which alternates between slice of life and adventure elements. It's 109 chapters, but it reads quickly. I finished it in about 2 days. The characters are likable, although the ending seems a bit forced. It's frequently humorous, and it never really becomes dark like other shonen journeys tend to.
