Samurai Usagi

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."

this... in my opinion.... doesnt seem to fit for a shounen weekly jump manga... since like half of those in it is crappy and those that are not often get low sales and then dropped..

this manga have the absolute best narration through my years of readin. The narration might seem to have tons of words... but thats absolutely awesome... i mean....its awesome therefore its awesome since i said its awesome i ought to be right and thus it is awesome... (wtf?!)

so far... only 5 chapters out... but with the 5 chapters.... i can say this manga is way better than all the others in shounen weekly jump... why?... cuz most of them sucks alot.... especially naruto, bleach,one piece, sket dance and dogashi kaden! also... wtf is that manga kochikame still doin in the shounen jump... i mean... it should be like old man jump instead....

anyways since i started talkin about shounen weekly jump for no reason at all.... let me point out some good ones
bari haken (i wonder why da heck no group take that :/)
hitman reborn
d gray man
Nurarihyon no Mago

I really like this manga, i like the way it's narrated, the way it shows some aspects of the era and the characters. As a shounen, one of the best ones i had read so far.

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.
