HIRANO Kouta [Japan]
After the Battle of Sekigahara breaks out in 1600, Toyohisa Shimazu attempts to kill the enemy’s general using a strategy called “Sutegamari” to breach the enemy’s defense. Injured and hovering between life and death, he opens a door to another world. A fantasy action manga set in another world in which “demi-humans” such as Elf and Oak are living, this work depicts new battles between Shimazu and the strongest samurai such as ODA Nobunaga and NASUNO Yoichi.
