My favorite comic is Huunji tachi 風雲児たち

My favorite comic is Huunji tachi 風雲児たち (men who rise to greatness in turbulent times).

This comic has been around for 30 years. The comic’s theme is “the Meiji Restoration (AD1853~1868)”. “the Meiji Restoration” is the time when Japanese radically changed their country system.

The story begins in AD1600, 250 years ago when the revolution start. Through this comic, you can understand the reason why the revolution happened and what people were thinking about in Edo period.

I am familiar with many historical people in Edo period due to this comic. Their ideology has had an impact on my thought.

Many Japanese have been affected by comics. Comics have the power to possibly change human life.
