The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls
An interweaving of history and fiction, based on the second novel of Yamada Fuutarou's Ninja Scrolls trilogy.
The Kanei Era (1624 - 1644). The Hori Clan rebels against Katō Akinari, the tyrannous daimyō of Aizu. The rebellion is suppressed with the aid of the shogunate, however, Katō's elite fighting force the Seven Spears then go too far, entering the Tokeiji Temple where the Hori women had sought protection, and trying to kidnap the women. This was unforgivable in the eyes of Tenjuin (Senhime, the wife of Toyotomi Hideyori), who had lived a life at the convenience of men. Tenjuin arranged for the remaining women to be trained by Takuan Oshō, so that they could seek their revenge. Jubei Yagyu, a one-eyed genius swordsman who was entrusted with the women, heads for Aizu, fighting his way through the Seven Spears. Waiting there are the mysterious man, Ashina Dohaku, who is trying to take control of the clan by ensnaring Akinari, and Dohaku's daughter and Akinari's concubine, Yura. Can Jubei and the women defeat the evil enemies?
Another in the Dandyism series, based on the eternal Takarazuka aesthetic of "otokoyaku beauty".
