Oniwaka to Ushiwaka Edge of the World
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Historical
Serialized: Weekly Shounen Magazine
Summary and Preview:
Set during the late Heian era eight centuries ago, when the Taira samurai clan held power and just before the rise of the shogunate in Japan. In the struggle between the Taira (Heike) and Minamoto (Genji) clans, the Taira appeared to have won. Most of the Minamoto family has been killed, and the Taira clan leader Kiyomori is horribly oppressing the people under his rule.
However, after the deaths of his family members, the young Minamoto Yoshitsune was hidden and trained at Kurama temple in the mountains near Kyoto. He is not satisfied with hiding in the temple all his life; it will not be long before he goes out into the world and the last chapter of the struggle between the two clans commences. This historical fantasy re-imagines the adventures of the real-life samurai leader Minamoto no Yoshitsune (Ushiwaka) and his loyal warrior monk Musashibou Benkei (Oniwaka).
Chapter 1 has been scaned!

This manga is basically about some real Japanese history. It's nice to learn more about Japanese history I guess?
Click for a preview if you're interested
i have seen the chinese raws and it looks pretty good. the author and artist are the guys from get backers. it'd interesting if someone translate it
maxikki made that post before it was translated Kaiten, his statement is correct but it's nice to bump the thread.
Scans are still coming out and I'm enjoying every single chapter, too bad the artist is having depression problems. So the series is now on hiatus.
