    Sanmoto Gorouzaemon

    Chapter 47: 山ン本五郎左衛門 / Sanmoto Gorouzaemon

    "Sanmoto Gorouzaemon is the name of a youkai in Japanese legend who fancied himself as the leader of all youkai, calling himself the "Maou" (demon king, evil king)."

    Who is this mysterious man hidden in the nura clan? Why does he hide himself among them? Would you believe Gyuuki was, next to tamazuki, another puppet of this man?

    Give your review (not necessarily mago related), your predictions about this mysterious man
    The biggest virtue is to support these Seven Deadly Sins in their fight!!!

    And if there is Sanmoto Gorouzaemon, his rival, Shin no Akugorou should appear as well. Sanmoto Gorouzaemon story in the manga follow true with the myth though. He was the one who give the katana to a samurai that with the katana defeated Inugami Gyoubu.

    Gyuuki already become Rikuo's man, I don't think he's Sanmoto Gorouzaemon puppet.

    Re: Sanmoto Gorouzaemon

    Sanmoto Gorouzaemon (山ン本五郎左衛門) appear in Inou mononokeroku/bukkairoku (稲生物怪録), a record written by Inou Heitarou (Inou Budayuu's child name). Sanmoto Gorouzaemon and Shinno Akugorou have a bet to scare 100 teenager with the seat of Maou's leader as the wager. Heitarou is the 86th. But even after a month, Heitarou stay unshaken. In the 30th day, Sanmoto Gorouzaemon appear in front of him as a +/- 40 years old samurai wearing hakama, praised him and give a wooden hammer (in the manga became a katana named Maou's hammer).
    Inugamigyoubu is leader of 808 tanuki. When he tried to take over Matsuyama castle, Budayuu used the wooden hammer received from Sanmoto Gorouzaemon to beat him and his 808 follower.

    The shrine where Inugamigyoubu sealed located in Yamaguchi Reishin Jinja in Kutani village, Matsuyama city, Aihime prefecture.
    The hammer preserved at Kokuzenji, Hiroshima prefecture.

    According wikipedia :
    Sanmoto and Shinno appear in a manga, Ushio and Tora, too, but it only borrow the name and different with the myth.
    They also appear in Great Youkai War

    Thanks. Ah, Ushio and Tora, possibly one of the most famous youkai manga and a classic in japan.

    No, I don't say Gyuuki is still Gorouzaemon's henchman but it could have been perfectly possible that Gyuuki's actions were a part of Gorouzaemon's plan. Don't forget he's hiding himself in the nura clan and he's using a certain body, clothes, avatar or whatever to hide himself. Like Tamazuki, Gyuuki couldn't have been aware of this guy because of his secret identity

    Re: Sanmoto Gorouzaemon

    A friend of mine has a realy wild guess about his identity: Rikuo's father
    I have to say if that happen, it's going to be tragedy all over the place.

    Gyuuki was a member of a group that tried to stop Rikuo becoming the third. The only other Member, we know is the leader of the one eyed demon clan Hitotsume Nyuudo. We don't know if Mitsume(Gorouzaemon's fake name) was a member and who was the leader of the group. I think he was a member because Hitotsume said to him that he must feel the same about Rikuo not becoming the third (chapter 47 page 11).
    In chapter 5 there was a meeting of the group.(chapter 5 page 18)

    Re: Sanmoto Gorouzaemon

    Seeing that Sanmoto called as mikanbune (mandarin orange ship) and how he reserved all Yoshiwara, looks like Shiibashi draw Sanmoto based on a real person called Kinokuniya Bunzaemon.
    As the verse "white sail in dark open sea" is part of his legend.
