MangaUpdates wrote:Early one New Year's morning, the rounin Senou Souichirou appears in Edo's Katagi tenements.

Initially, the inhabitants regard him with fear and suspicion: Kankichi, the carpenter's son, thinks he may not be human; the neighbourhood cats remark that he reeks of blood. But soon Souichirou pawns his sword, and, with a bamboo replica at his waist, settles down to a quiet life as the neighborhood school-teacher.

Months pass, and all appears to be well. But trouble will not leave the Katagi tenements alone ...

This story diverges from the hero and villain stereotype. It was a beautiful read.

Two amazing parts in the story.

-- Katsu Do you know the legend of Tenryu River?
-- Yes. There's a legend that says a dragon writhing in agony left a trail that later became the Tenryu River.
-- Long ago, there was a giant dragon that lived in Lake Suwako...
-- After much thought, the villagers decided to present a young beautiful girl to the dragon as an offering... even the dragon had never seen such a beauty before.
-- But this girl already had a man who loved her...
-- He was very clever and skilled with the bow and arrow.
-- He drew his bow against the dragon and the arrow pierced the dragon's left eye perfectly...
-- And thus the two were able to marry and live happily ever after.
How brave that man in the story was.
But still,
How pitiful the dragon was...

Hey Sou,
-- I'm not going to teach you how to fight with a sword.
Oh come on, you big meanie!
-- Why do you want to learn anyways?
-- I thought you didn't like me using a sword.
Well, back when you were fighting that samurai,
I thought you looked really strong...
I want to be strong too.
-- The strong are those who win without fighting.
-- Fighting to display one's power is what weaklings do.
That's so boring.
