Aonuma’s work is proven when the flu goes around the chambers, with many fallen ill. Meanwhile, the plain-spoken Gennai is investigating the potential cause of the pox. I found the studies and spatting of these two, particularly as they seek to educate those who don’t care, entertaining and refreshing, another hook into this historical series. Gennai is a very modern character, although that may be his downfall, as his inability not to say what he’s thinking makes him some powerful enemies. However, he also comes up with an astounding idea to fight the pox, using bears. And his good humor, optimism, and enthusiasm is always welcome. (That’s him on the cover.)
Although long into the series, with its medical investigations and distinctive characters, Book 9 would be a fine place to start reading. (Review originally posted at ComicsWorthReading.com.)
