Hidamari no Ki

 One of Osamu Tezuka's work that i read recently as the fan-translation has been finished. As expected from the Father of Manga's work, the story is good if the conclusion is rather weak. In this manga you get to see Tezuka's take on the end of Tokugawa era through the relationship between a doctor and samurai. Even though i have read plenty of works on Bakumatsu Era, Hidamari no Ki take on the period is still refreshing. You still get to see the cause and effect behind the fall of Tokugawa Shogunate which is rife with corruption and stagnation. Apparently the Doctor was Tezuka's Ancestor which he literally honor him through this manga. Personally i never like the Samurai protagonist because he is too stubborn to a fault but i am rather curious how does he end up in the end. If you want to read Tezuka's work Hidamari no Ki is quite easy to get into.
