In the Sengoku Period (1579), there is a young woman who has lost everything, and dedicated herself to seeking strength and a death on the battlefield.

Reiri once lived happily with her family, until the day soldiers came by after a battle. Her father, mother and brother sacrificed themselves in order for her to survive. She was only saved with the intervention of Okabe Tanba-no-Kami, who had been sheltering in the village. In his service, she grew and learned to fight well, chasing her goal of a death in battle. However, her path to death may not be as short and straight as she hopes.

This is a brilliant manga. Story, art, writing, everything is done really well.

The titular character, Reiri, grows and develops greatly throughout the unfolding events, slowly changing her view on existence and life, and despite the bitter sweet ending - it fits her growth, and mirrors her origins well.

Difficult to put down, beautifully illustrated, and masterfully paced - Reiri is evidently a work of great skill and effort.

Art - Beautiful and refined. A blend of realistic and stylized, with aspects of it feeling gritty and tangible, at times horrifying, and others feeling light and distilled to the essence, it's one of the prettier mangas out there.

Reiri is a historical fiction manga written by Hitoshi Iwaaki(parasyte/ historie).. It's about a girl whose family is killed but she is saved by a Samurai Lord. She decides to become a fighter for him.
If you like Japanese history, this is a must read. It has great action, dialog and thoroughly enjoyable.
We see Tokugawa Ieyasu, Oda Nobunaga, Takeda Nobukaysu and other warlords make war. And Reiri is in the midst of it all!!

It's fiction. But follows history as closely as possible, with few added spices.
