Synopsis

When childhood innocence gives way to a blinding thirst for revenge, is it worth the price of one's humanity? Tetsunosuke and Tatsunosuke are the sons of a diplomat who sought to bring peace and prosperity to Japan during the early Meiji Restoration. But when their parents are murdered before their very eyes, Tetsu seeks to join the Shinsengumi, the unofficial police who are capable of the same brutality as his parents' murderers. Wading through a sea of espionage, deception and bloodshed, the young boy must choose: should he take a step on the path to becoming a demon... or give up his rage and transform into the ultimate Peacemaker?

Nanae Chrono's Peace Maker was released at a time where Shinsengumi fiction was mostly confined to television shows and films - in fact, the same year saw the release of Nagisa Oshima's Gohatto - despite them being a staple of Japanese culture. Rurouni Kenshin and Kaze Hikaru were really the only other established manga that had depicted the samurai police force in any light. The decade since has seen the Shinsengumi reinvigorated, with numerous portrayals in Because Goodbyes Are Coming Soon, Sayonara Shinsengumi, Hakuouki and Gintama. However, no manga since Peace Maker has portrayed them so tremendously and to such a memorable degree.

The Shinsengumi is a fairly common topic for anime and manga. They appear in stories ranging in style from the comedy Gintama to the shonen samurai action series Rurouni Kenshin. The real life special police force that existed during the final days of the Shogunate is indeed quite fascinating; their talent was renowned and, despite having lost their war, it is difficult to not paint them in the very least a remarkable light.
