Description
The main character Udagawa Gosuke has received his father's dojo, mainly because his father and older brother were made to commit hara-kiri. He wasn't really supposed to get it simply because he's a second son. But due to the way his pops and brother died, he doesn't have a whole lot of self confidence, so he practices fencing day-by-day at a nearby dojo. However, because the people at that dojo are asses, he soon tries to invent a dojo and a style for people who just enjoy it.

However what really sets this aside from most shounen is that the main male and female characters are actually married. (At age 15 no less!)

The girl Utagawa Shino is the younger sister of his senpai, and is a bit...weird, to say the least. She makes rabbit masks to help bring in a bit of money, although to say that she's obsessed with rabbits would be an understatement. She claims it's because "the rabbits will someday reach the moon." When Gosuke invents his new dojo, he decides to make a style of swordsmanship known as "Rabbit Style Fencing."

Iíve only read the first two chapters that were scanlated but Iím already hooked. Itís definitely not your average shounen manga. It shows both the good and ugly side of the bushi and their era without being too serious or glamorized, like in most manga. Both the main characters are cute and likeable too~ Read it!

This story tells a very perspective manga, and its not some other shounen. From the first chapter you can tell is has depth and meaning, and character development. This is all by reading the first chapter, I look forward to more.

I expected this to be a light tale about a kid samurai. Instead I discovered a culture-rich tale of a kid at ends with the bushi system. A unique read, and recommmended.
