It is a historical drama of Ikegami Riichi's painting, I think that the distinctive style that mixed the idea at the end of the century at the end of the series was characterized by the disturbance of the end of Edo period.

[good point]
While the combination and execution of Hepbone touched the core of the story while having various difficulties, encounter Toyo on the way, becoming like a couple of execution and fleas while sprinkling various key words of hardships and mysteries , And it intertwines with the star of the end of the Tokugawa period with a unique air pecking style.

Written by Okita Shoji who has a strong thin image of a beautiful line of a line is different from the conventional image, that Okita Seiji, who is quite a rogue tone, works for execution and Hepbone or gives a wild face, I think that it was interesting in style and arrangement of characters.

[Bad point]
I think that the way of closing close to censoring, the execution died, so that the last could not be tightened properly for that reason.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Armageddon of the destruction of mankind has become the theme of this work, even if such Armageddon does not occur, it may be that such age may have arrived ... the current situation, like this work, Sunday The work of this hand of the hand is drawing a problem of the times, and there are quite a lot of cases where we were anticipating the times further (because it is an Ikegami Riichi painting work ... because it is also a translation), so this work also attracted attention in that sense You may be able to do it.

Even though war could be avoided, now the world has become devastated, the impression that the people's hearts have been killed has become stronger, and from such a thing and the end of the Tokugawa shogun, humans have not changed in a bad way It seems to be the fact that you will be scattered if you also look for parts that might be.

Even in modern times such as the warning message to the present age and the terrorism that falsified Armageddon of a certain cult, even though it is not possible to find dreams and hopes in the end of the century and such world ... It may be a warning bell.
