Let us have a talk about Yagyu Ninpochou /a/.
Plot is basically 7 woman of the Hori Clan taking revenge on the Ashina Clan that murdered their husbands/parents/relatives while being trained by Yagyu Jubei. If you enjoyed Basilisk you will undoubtly enjoy Yagyu Ninpochou too.
I don't read this but I saw a minishit storm thread the other day about it. The man in the OP is a gay samurai who was captured and his enemies were going to have him raped by their female slaves, I'm guessing those are the female slaves having sided with the gay samurai.
I liked basilik at first but the author was a worst sadist than George RR Martin with how he gets you to like a character then having them die senseless deaths ending in a total wipe out of pretty much every named character in the end.
I quit reading it after a while the same way I lost interest in Game of Thrones.
i don't have the right mindset to enjoy a tragedy. I'm too over analytical when it comes most of my entertainment I guess and when bad situations could have been avoided if the characters would just stop and think for a second, i get drawn out of the story.
to be fair, same with Romeo and Juliet
besides the two sides were wrapped in shogun politics and the manipulation of the Tybalt character even if they tried to get our someone or some event would throw them back in.
im only comparing the ending for which its infamously known for.
>bittersweet in manga
was the ending different than the anime? cause they were two lovers from two different clans that were in contest/war with each other.
