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 Mono. To live or not to live. For the power of the art. That is the question!

I’m happy to say that I was not disappointed for once in a very long time. The story of Hyougemono transports us to the time of Oda Nobunaga, and I know it is a time visited very (underline ‘very’) frequently by Mangaka (that’s to say, it’s beginning to be a cliché) HOWEVER!

This story does NOT feature a lovable teddybear Nobunaga nor the I-don’t-know-what-the-Hell-I’m-doing Nobunaga and thankfully, not the Girls-just-wanna-have-fun! Cyndi Lauper-inspired Nobunaga. Though still not completely historically accurate, at least we have SOMETHING different.

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
