it was a fun episodic manga with some good messages and then it went to shit when they changed it to serious crap
the horrible rankings and the declining sales are well deserved
serious stuff was alright, dont get the hate for it.
The shogun assassination arc and everything after it isn't good and drags on forever. I predict another year full of chapters where the same stuff repeats again and again. And every chapter will have "muh samurai pride".
