There are not many people who can draw such a work.
This can be asserted.

Talk begins in 10 years after my father was killed, where Mr. Takeuchi meets an old man named him.

First of all, you can see the legend of Saburo Koka, the shaman God represented by Takeimekata, the tradition about horses such as Takehara kofun and horse head sounding,
An ancient myth and tradition, especially the view of the world drawn from the viewpoint of the author based on its dark parts.

Kaka Saburo 's transformed figure and Takeinakata, part of the golden stamp was contained in the coffin of Iimoya Iron, the Iwate - ya fountain, Ogami who became a ghost by the spring water,
Kikuchi Hirohiko who finished the same final as the raid after sacrificing everything by handling the father of Mr. Takeshi himself to become an artman,
Knowing the truth of the death of my father Kikuchi Hiki killing Martial arts man who took over the cross that can not bear to humans Mutai,
In work, people trying to enter the realm of the unknown person and people's work through the dark of myths, showed an inevitable place of human beings.

Among them, it was good that Miroku who kept emitting light until the end was the author 's answer to the theme of the work.

Although it is a cult, it was a story I made in a modern age by fusing the great Japanese theme of Daijiro Oosa with a tremendous theme and difficulty, and the history of humanity from a unique point of view and myths of India.

[good point]
Where the main character Takeshi, along with Tachibana, learns about his own mystery and past, it is invited to an unknown world, thereby finally becoming an artman, is magnificent, and at the same time the human end It seemed like a warning and a warning sign to the imminent end, and when the mystery of that history was uncovered, the theme of what people would see was heavy.

When we think about the fight between Kumaso and Yamato Imperial Court after a while, it is made to think, "Does the court side really be good and Kumaso was evil?" Even now, the Kikuchi hikaraku raid is made a villain, but it is possible to think that it was really good, if there is interference of Yamato Imperial Court if I reset the original, and assert Kikuhihiko as unilaterally evil Is there anything I can do? And there is no buddy if I think of the conclusion that one person in the vicinity of Orion is ... even if it was a victim who won the victory of his parents and won? Where I could not help saying was also intense.

Where the Kikuchi clan dies one after the other in search of strength, and there is a place to let me think about various things even if it is a way to end the aftertaste badly.

[Bad point]
Many people dislike paintings ....

Because there are also dark content and fear, I think that there are many people who are not familiar with them, the theme is very difficult, and if there is no myth and preliminary knowledge of religion to some extent, I can enjoy this work and understand I do not think so.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
This work has gotten too early in the era, and therefore, it seems that the content has become very heavy.

I think that it had influenced the production of computer RPG later, because there was a work like this work, and works such as "Megami Tensei" series and "Peacock King" also received various influences of this work I think there is a certain place.

Human beings are better at seeking something to consider and fear of things like the occultness of the Nihon Shoki and Myths, the gruesomeness and cruelty of ancient religions, what happens when it revives to the present day ... It also seems that some aspects such as ... are bad as well.

Anyway, aside from the author's drawing, even if we reach the goal by entering purpose, we can not turn back for that reason ... Wart and Kikuchi Hiki's conflict are also drawn, occult, but warning bell It was a work conveying deep scaryness.

Calculated story

[Bad point]

[Comprehensive evaluation]
This is the best Daijiro work. I read it in real time, but in the short term serial,
That fact was stated. So the story is done properly and punch line is also good.
That's a strange thing, the author also investigates and translates the story, and even in the author's neighborhood "This is a puzzle"
I am saying that. Even if you read it, it will be pulled gui gay.

However, it is impossible to empathize to characters much. The main character is standing, though.
Probably because the scale of the story is too big, I guess it's because I can not follow it.

This work is a mysterious story, so if you write about the story in detail,
I write it in a boga, but the middle of the story is a bit too Toba and it is crisp. This neighborhood is a little more,
May I have content?

But when I think about it, this work has no "effort", "friendship" or "victory" "concept of jumping"
Heterogeneous work off his back. Maybe it's a short-term series, is it a good old age?

In conclusion it is "highest!" If this story is not this pattern it may be bad,
There is no doubt that it is a masterpiece. After all I have bought the same book for two books
(It is a matter of going back to buying it as the first one has been lost).

Professor Daijiro Daio who is serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1976 and is a science fiction manga of SF. `Mushi 'living in Musashino was killed when his young age, there was a mysterious scar on the body of Musha himself. One day I learned that my father was looking for treasure of Sakuro Koka from a man who claims to be a friend of my father and goes to Tateshina of the scene. However, there is a strange old man there, and he is guided by the mysterious ruins by him. So Takeshi will encounter a super mysterious phenomenon.

This work is an adventure drama including the occult element in the jump of Genesis in the 1970s, drawn by Mr. Osama who has many works that overwhelm varietal values 〓〓〓〓〓nd world views with the theme of ancient history It is a work. It is finished in a considerably magnificent scale which drew the view of the world of Rika Ryuko through the world of this world and Yomogi, using the ancient ruins and mythological legends that are still unknown. It is not easy to read through an occult movie or novel with a heartbrokenness because it is an expansion that contents go into a fantastic world from the ruins of the clay and the shrine. Moreover, the design of Mr. Toshiro was too realistic, there was a pretty scary impression. If this is the case, "Kitaro no Kitaro" or "Terrible newspaper" will still start.

This work is content for people who are interested in occult music or super mystery phenomenon, and may not be suitable for the general public. But the content is very dense and the scale is big, so the evaluation is good. I am also interested in archeology and curiosity, but it is rather scientific elucidation school, super mysterious things like this work did not fit much with the skin. But the super spatiotemporal setting of this work is comparable to "ten billion noon and one hundred billion nights".

It is a strange comic based on Yamato Takeru legend. Brahman of Buddhism in Japan is linked to the concept of Buddhism Artman and ultimately there is a tremendous idea to tie it to the principle of the universe.

I think that hero is a fantasy thing or a battle if it is made from the story that the hero receives eight saints in his body and awakens as a transcendent ... but in reality there are few depictions of such battles etc., somewhat progressing somewhat To go. A story development that introduces ancient ruins throughout, traces myths, and plays an absurd hypothesis on it. Can you enjoy it if you are an archaeologist?

Although somewhat unsatisfactory in terms of excitement, there is something amazing in the touch of the painting and the atmosphere in the play, and from the virtue of pulling with "mystery" just without escaping to people and psychological depictions, unexpectedly the next development is worrisome I read it. However, I can not understand why Yamato Takeru had to tie the operation of the universe still.

It is one of the earliest representative works of Daijiro Oosa, one book I would like to keep in the meaning of a magnificent large wrapping cloth story. The density of this density with works of thirty years ago from now -. Mystery tone.

Warrior attracted to Jomon pottery. When he was young he remembered his form of crying in front of his father's dead in the mountains. One day, I was invited by a man for treasure to see the truth of my father's death, but I am going to visit Suwa, where I encountered a monster called Takenomikata's god. This is the beginning of a real story.
Suddenly it was plucked into the world of Brahman who is the truth of the universe,
I will be informed that I am qualified for Artman. To that end, Suwa,
It seems necessary to visit each ruin of Yaizu, Kyoto, Nara, Asuka, Izumo, Kunisaki and receive seven sanctuary. He is going to cross around the region despite being maddened by its fate. (I can not explain this properly - ^^;)

As a story, because of the high density, it is quite an expansive development, so it is often time to leave it. In that sense, people interested in history and ruins may find it interesting. Artwork is the best.
If you say that this is Daijiro Doshi, it does not seem to be a good idea if you are going to devote a little more pages to developers for beginners.
So, it is a must-see as the last is going to be like Akira or Eva.
It is already overwhelmed by the ceiling's nude, which is backed by ancient history and religious feeling.

I'd like you to do a tour around the dark myth related affairs tour by dove bus. This manga,
I want to understand more. First of all, the intuition of the land is hoaxy.
What I did to "good and bad" also included the meaning of the commandment that my understanding is not enough (^ ^;)

Speaking of which, that works, it is animated. But, as it is old it is not very good. Or rather unreasonable? W
