Synopsis

It was the Sengoku-era, when the warlords usurped each other. There was a man whose soul was overtaken by the ways of tea and material greed, as he worked his way up toward greater power and status. His name was Sasuke Furuta, a subordinate warrior of Nobunaga Oda. With his world broadened by Nobunaga the Genius, and his spiritual insight learned from Senno Soueki the Master of Tea, Sasuke drove the road to hyouge. To live or not to live. For the power of the art. That is the question!

But the story isn’t about Oda Nobunaga (even if my long-ish rant says otherwise), it’s about Furuta, Sasuke wannabe-warrior and tea read more

For a long time I have been disenchanted with Sengoku Jidai media for having the same old formula of "we must unify Japan" and the usual sentimental gallantry of a bushido code that wasn't even coined until much later. My fascination with the period ended but then I came across Hyouge Mono which caused me to reverse my decision. How unique this storytelling is! And despite its playing with the facts of history, it seems to me more true to history than other Sengoku Jidai media, and furthermore, more true to human nature. I was even surprised that the manga bothered to mention the Imjin read more
