HappyScans! - thanks so much for persevering with this manga to the end. It's been a great read.

Seems the final chapter uploaded was just the cleans.

this was my fault completely. Uploaded the actual epilogue.

Thanks a lot for all the hard work, happy scan dudes.

This is such a good story. (T-T)

Holy shit, this was a sad chapter

Don't know how many would be interested in this kind of thing, but just in case... Here's an interview of Hagio Moto from 2009 in which she's asked which manga artists - and which of their works in particular - influenced her as an artist. She replies by bringing up Tezuka and Hidamari no Ki (among others).

 

The fact that she brings up one of his later works as an influence speaks to how highly she must view the series, given that she was solidly into her own illustrious career by the time this came out.

 

Great link. I hope there are many more interested people than we four who liked it

Yes, this manga is really great.

Characterization, but narration as well.

The characterization in this manga is among the best I've ever had the good fortune to enjoy, not only in manga, but in any work of fiction.

This scanlation is alive? Nice.

 

Last chapter was 2 weeks ago and the one before than was on january.

Thank you for the update. :)

Thank you for the epic 88-page chapter.

thank you for the updates!

I feel there's not a single character in this story that doesn't deserve respect.

tragic :(

One of the best I've ever read....I highly recommend this

An update!

 

I'm so happy to see this series in English. Compared to some of Tezuka's other works, there's nothing really "fantasy-like" about this manga (the characters are all adults, many of them actual figures from the Bakumatsu), but it's a great story about young people living as passionately as they can and (literally) fighting for what they believe in while the world is changing all around them.

 

Definitely my favorite Tezuka manga. Thank you, HappyScans!

Is there anywhere to read the rest?

Great manga, great translation.

Thanks :)

thanks for the updates

so f*cking badass

At first I thought, "Oh wow, this manga is so good!" then I saw the author's name xD of course it's good - it's Osamu Tezuka. Will be looking forward to next chapters scanlations.
