HASH(0x9baa3e88) out of 5 stars smitten by this series Jan. 3 2009
By K. A. Smith - Published on
Format: Paperback
I confess that at first I wasn't a big fan of the art style of this series, but it has really grown on me and now I love it. In particular, I admire the care and effort the mangaka has put into making the clothing, locations, and overall story as historically accurate as possible. Of course, because there is a romance aspect and a character who does not exist historically (the leading "lady") being worked into the true historical facts, some things had to be modified, but I am able to overlook that.

Personally, I enjoy the premise of a female character taking her fate in her hands, avenging her family, choosing to become a warrior despite her stature and gender (even undercover!), devoting her life and loyalty to a cause (and to the one she loves) and not having to be some hot babe at the same time--and being accepted and loved in return, as a person.

Despite this series being a shojo (for girls) manga, there's a good dose of fighting and violence, as well as comedic aspects that make me laugh so much. Volume 11, however, takes a somber dramatic turn that also left me in tears. Sei is again challenged to resolve both her desire to be a true bushi, and to have true love--if either can ever come to pass. It's a conflict that I worry can only end in more tears--but who can say?

This is perhaps my favorite manga series I've read: funny, dramatic, bold, rich with history (I'm learning more about Japan's history than I ever knew before), action-filled, and with what feels to me to be a tender and fervent sincerity. I wait impatiently for volume 12!

HASH(0x9bac7a8c) out of 5 stars Good story line Dec 7 2007

This manga has a great story line, all base in the shinsengumi. Is not too girly for us otaku that look for more than fairy tale story. This manga was well research by the artist.
