Hyouge Mono manga – new ch.#5 scanlation

Furuta in Akechi castleI’ve made my own scanlation of Hyouge Mono manga ch #5. Here our aesthete hero Furuta Sasuke is impressed by his master Oda Nobunaga’s new castle. Like so many things in this manga (and anime), this castle really existed. It was destroyed by fire a few years after its completion. It’s almost unknown for a manga (and anime) to depict Nobunaga Oda as a man, as this one does, rather than an ogre or demon. If you’re interested in Hyouge Mono and its historical background, you can search out the web postings of a small band of enthusiasts, or read books on the history of this period.
