Anime Nation: Tales of the Tendo Family Vol 1

Filed under: News — Staff @ 9:26:19

Historical shoujo romantic drama is a relatively common subgenre of manga, and one that's well-done more often than not. Veteran shoujo manga creator Ken Saito's Tales of the Tendo Family (Tendou-ke Monogatari) premiered in 2014 and told its story through 14 volumes. Although the first book's illustration doesn't set new standards for shoujo art, its strong characterizations and brisk pacing make the tale instantly engrossing and highly enjoyable, for select readers. One Peace Books will begin releasing the official English-language translation of the manga on April 9.

Hojo Ran, the daughter of a Meiji-era baron, dives into a river to escape her upcoming arranged marriage to Masato Tendo, the son of a powerful but dangerously toxic family. She nearly drowns, but a nameless teen girl who lives alone in the mountains rescues her. This girl, inspired by the mysterious hermit who raised her, dreams of dying to save another person's life. Seeing an opportunity to do just that, she tells the real Ran to flee, and assumes her identity. Masato sees through the ruse almost immediately, but refuses to kill her like she hopes. Instead, he forces her to keep up the ruse so he can manipulate his family more easily.

Comics Worth Reading: Tales of the Tendo Family Vol 1

I don't read historical manga much any more, as I find not understanding the references off-putting. I gave this a try because a smart editor mentioned to me that it was by Ken Saito, author of The Name of the Flower, which I remembered enjoying when CMX put it out 15 years ago.

Boston Bastard Brigade: Tales Of The Tendo Family - Volume 1

Filed under: News — Staff @ 15:26:39

Is life worth throwing away if it's used to save another? In all honesty, not really. While it's noble to sacrifice one's self to protect another, making it your goal to die during a rescue is — to be blunt — pretty crazy. Perhaps this is why I can see where Tendo Masato is going concerning keeping a woman close to his realm. It's this aspect that makes the premiere volume of Tales of the Tendo Family quite the interesting read.
