Kaze Hikaru

"Kaze Hikaru" ("Shining Wind" or "The Wind Shines") by Taeko Watanabe 21 volumes- ongoing

Sei blends in as a samurai with shaved head and all to avenge her family. She then finds herself falling in love with her mentor, Okita Soji. "Kaze Hikaru" is commercially packaged as shojo manga , bagged Shogakukan Manga Award for shojo in 2003 and published by Shojo Beat. Noticed that the word "shojo" is overused that you'd think of sweet syrupy romance. Love is the driving force but not blatantly misused. It's a love and war story set in 1863. Brush up your Japan history 101 as the mangaka tried (and sometimes failed) to be historically accurate. The art is so neat, but it's hard to distinguish who's who at first as all men sport the same hair and clothes. The English translations is far from halfway from the current volume. And it's far too early to tell as well if it's is a reverse harem or not. But it's a guarantee that you'll enjoy this if you like an engaging samurai story. I'll be adding some of unconfirmed titles soon.
