Takemetsu Zamurai counts amongst one of the most beautiful and relaxing series that I’ve ever read, maybe it was the lazy setting of the edo period, maybe it was calm and relax attitude of the protagonist or maybe it was the talking animals. Reading this manga was a joyous experience.
The characters of this manga are simple yet eloquent and contain amazing depth. The interaction of one character with the environment or with another characters is very elegant, warm and natural specially the friendship of Senou and Kankichi in the beginning helps you in settling into the manga. The art, specially the human anatomy, might be considered mediocre by some, but I felt that it was surreal as it provided that folklore like feeling to the manga. It was like looking at some painting from edo period which is telling the story of Senou and his life. The battles were interestingly drawn and were easy to comprehend.Overall, this manga is a work of art, and I feel happy that I read it.
