Date Bashira (伊達柱)By:Demographics:
3 Chapters (Ongoing)Manga Details Page: HereRaws: Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3Translations: NoneScanlations: None
Date Bashira is a series of stories about the Sengoku era in Japan. However, unlike most textbooks and historical mangas, Date Bashira does not focus on the Shogun or famous figures in history. Instead, it brings to light the untold stories of the things surrounding these famous figures. For example, one story tells about the role of how beautiful young men were always accompanying the shoguns into battle. As women were not allowed into a battle zone, the warlords would use these teenage boys to satisfy their sexual urges.
A different chapter tells the history of the wives of the Shoguns and focuses on the female role in the Sengoku era. As young women were forced into arranged marriages, usually as peace offerings or spies, their husbands usually die in battle at a very early age, as it was the era of war. Date Bashira discusses the idea of remarriage for these women and if they were really in love or were playing the role of a wife.
Date Bashira takes a different perspective at one of Japan’s most talked about era and even though it is informative, you never get the feeling of a lecture. The beautiful artwork, splash of comedy and the untold, yet interesting historical information really keeps the reader glued onto the pages.Thanks go to vyc for the summary.

The year is 1570 in Japan and the land is ruled by none other than Toyotomi Hideyoshi. Hideyoshi is recruiting the best and brightest minds to work for him and one of them is Ishida Mitsunari. Mitsunari, just a child at this point, is short in stature and has hardly any combat ability, but where he lacks in physical skills, he makes up greatly in his mind. Called one of the best tacticians of his time, Mitsunari shows great potential even at a young age.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Of the ones I read, Arahabaki was probably the most interesting, plot-wise. Also, strangely, there was another curling manga, Sweep. It was funny, though the plot was a bit improbable! (Orange Delivery was the last one on this sport, not long ago). Also, there are two manga that are about the relationship between the historical figure Sanada Yukimura and a ninja called Sarutobi Sasuke (apparently the name is john-doe-ninja in Japan), Kageroi and Warabe no Kusa . However, these manga differ in the type of plot, characterization of those two people and their relationship, and art style.Date Bashira
looks interesting since it describes the regular people in the Sengoka era as opposed to the same old famous characters. I like the idea behind Kirinji
with a focus on winning by using a person's mind versus through some glorious fight scene. Kokou no Hito
reminds me a bit of last week's Gaku
manga, another mountain climbing manga, but since this has one chapter scanlated, I'll be checking this out. Maru Maru Se Yo! Sengoku Gakuen Seitokai
definitely looks interesting and reminds me a bit of SigIkki's Afterschool Charisma with it's use of famous people in history, although everything else is different. Straight No Chaser
reminds me a little of Nodame with an eccentric character learning a musical instrument. I'd definitely want to check this out. Translated items that need some love/scanlation:xdeathcat
