Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ask any reader of Ten Ten, current or former, where most readers think the story loses all cohesion and they'll usually say it's during the Feudal Japan story arc. It's easy to see why. A sudden shift to 16th century Japan, plethora of new characters, and a mixture of historical people can be jarring to the non-Japanese history buff. So is the story as convoluted as believed? Has Oh! Great really lost his mind? A little yes, a little no.

First off, yes there's another flashback story. Unlike the previous one which took up two volumes (technically four in regular manga format) this one only takes up a little more than 1 1/2 of the volume. Why the sudden shift to Feudal Japan? According to Oh! Great, it's because he 'really likes history'.

The problem with this is the average reader is not too keen on 1600's Japan. The story weaves fictional story into historical fact. Guys like Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Mitsuhide Akechi, Tenkai are virtual unknowns to most Americans and the political backdrop is given no explanation as this book wasn't exactly designed for English readers in mind. The common criticism of this storyline is that there are too many characters to keep track of and in a way this is true. These guys don't exactly have names that roll of the tongue.

So was this flashback arc worth it in the end? In the long run, actually yes. Is it still a bit confusing? Yes.

This volume is all about Sohaku and what his big plan is. To discover this, Reiki takes Aya back to the past to view his motives and history. She takes her back to a period of time where a group is plotting to assassinate Sohaku as they believe he is driving the country into the ground. Leading this group is Ichiyo Nagi, Soichiro's ancestor.
