The war between the two clans intensifies. Most of the Genji (Minamoto Clan) have fallen, and were taken as captives. Among them was the young Yoritomo, a surviving successor of the Minamoto Clan. Yoritomo was pardoned by the head of the Taira Clan and was exiled to Hirugakojima, a small island in the Izu province. Yoritomo lived a peaceful and contented life in exile and never once thought of taking revenge.

One day, a monk was sent to the same island, supposedly banished for insolence towards the Emperor. Incidentally, this ill-mannered monk called Mongaku is Yoritomo's acquaintance. Mongaku meets Yoritomo and tries to convince him that the time has come to take revenge on the Taira. However, Yoritomo shuns Mongakuís wordsÖ.

I enjoyed this. The cast is quirky and original. The character do all look similar, but that isn't uncommon in manga and can be contributed to style. The fact that the protagonist does not take immediate action when provoked is odd, but also sets him apart from other protagonists. This manga is a good read if you want something out of the ordinary. Additionally, I'll add that the humour in this series is pretty good. If you don't get much out of this series, at least you'll probably get a good laugh.

I canít quite say I like this. The artwork would be better if not all the male characters were drawn as teenagers w/ various spikey hair. I had trouble telling apart the male characters because of the similar face and hair styles. I donít think all the male characters are teens, so it may be just the mangakaís style towards shounen? Although, this series is categorized as josei....

As for the plot, there wasnít any action until Ch 5. Is that the end of Vol 1 or the beginning of Vol 2? In any case, because the action came about so late and didnít last long; the story was kind of a snoozer. I actually didnít really understand the plot anyways.

Here's the historical background, and won't spoil anything on the series. Two clans got into a war. One clan won. One clan lost. Looser clan wipes out the leading family except for one of the younger sons. Looser clanís leader got decapitated, eldest son gets injured so bad that the father gives him a mercy killing, and the younger son gets exiled into some place so that he will never raise arms, practice the sword, hold a sword, or do any revenge stuff. To begin w/, leaving the younger son alive and assigning others to watch over his behavior doesnít seem to be cost effective. Why not just wipe out the looser clan anyways? If youíre going to go to war, wipe out the enemy so they can never come back to haunt you. This just screams PLOTKAI!

Thereís only about 10 chapters scanlated right now, and about the first 6 chapters the hero has been refusing left and right in raising the flag of his fallen clan. Pretty boring to have a hero be so passive and defeatist for so long in a series.
