Hino Tetsu was in a gang as a teenager, with his friends Kunio, Kosuke, and Atsushi. Back then, motorcycles, friendship, women, and violence were the most important things in life. Then, Tetsu had a kid with his girl Kiri, and they began to settle down into a different kind of happiness.

Now Tetsu's kid, Shuhei, is 14, and he's got to deal with living under the shadow of his father's gang legacy. His 'uncles', quiet Kunio, who now owns an Italian restaurant, Kosuke, who is still a womanizer, and friendly-seeming Atsushi are a major presence in his life. There's also Atsushi's cute daughter, Makoto, who is about his age. Shuhei wants to do ordinary teenage stuff (like lose his virginity with Makoto), but can he keep from getting caught up in the complications of his parent's past?

Starting in 1590, this historical manga features the deadly Sengoku-period samurai Honda Sakuzaemon Shigegetsu, known as Oni Sakuza for his ferocity. He fights for Tokugawa Ieyasu, along with the warrior Ookubo Hikozaemon Tadataka. Tokugawa's forces, along with the forces of Toyotomi Hideyoshi (a very recent ally after Tokugawa opposed him in the Komaki Campaign), are attacking the last independent daimyo, Hojo Ujimasa, who ruled 8 provinces in the eastern Kanto region of Japan. Sakuza is still suspicious of this new ally, and still considers anyone not Tokugawa an enemy!

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
There's a couple here for people who are into historical manga. Oni no Sakuza is a Sengoku period story, and Nomi no Ou is set way back, like 2000 years ago. I don't think I've ever seen a manga set so far back in Japanese history. Tonari no Seki-kun was really cute, and it was fun to see what games Seki came up with each chapter (I'm not sure how long that premise can last in a manga, though). Bakugyaku Kazoku was a pretty interesting story once it got going, though there is a lot of adult content in there.
Here's what vyc had to say:
Quote:
Hana wa Kurenai - romance series with lots of sex scenes so definitely for the mature audience. Still, the overall mystery of the storyline along with character, plot development keeps the reader interested. A little old but still a great read.

Waluta Hanga - sci-fi, mystery series where people have to survive on an island filled with never before seen and dangerous creatures. Some scenes are graphic but the overall mystery keeps the reader engaged. Really liked this one.

Jirai - main character is a killer of killers. Eliminating murderers that threaten the well being of society. Set in the past when samurai where still around, the great artwork and short story type plotline make it a good read.

My opinion:
Not much really interested me, although Tonari no Seki-kun sounds pretty funny~
