MangaCast Review: Ooku: The Inner Chambers, vol. 2
I've posted my first review of the New Year on MangaCast, the source for manga news and reviews. This time around, I reviewed the second volume of Ooku: The Inner Chambers. Here's an excerpt:
In an alternate history of feudal-era Japan, a mysterious epidemic has hit the country’s male population. ... While this started as an AU history lesson, it slowly developed into a twisted love story. Yoshinaga’s set-up of the redface pox receives more political detail and shows its role in starting the female line of shoguns.
