    From Shinobu Ohtaka, the author of Sumomomo Momomo and Magi, comes a brand new series – Orient. This one, much like Magi, is a historical fantasy, only this time around Ohtaka has traded the Arabian Nights setting for one that is much more akin to the Warring States era Japan.

    Synopsis:


    Story and Art: Shnobu Ohtaka
    Genre: Historic/Fantasy
    Published by: Kodansha
    Magazine: Weekly Shounen Magazine (weekly)
    Status: Ongoing (May 30th)

    Pretty good debut chapter imo, though nothing mindblowing. It's interesting that the two supposed MC's are called Musashi and Kojoro, since
    Spoiler:
    Musahsi actually killed Kojiro in real-world history

    So, we'll see how that relationship pans out.


    Best panel for me. Motorbikes are never not cool :datass

    Mc is kinda a mix of soloman and sinbad and the fact that he has a scythe weapon is deff a plus. Chapter was decent though. I'll also be keeping a close eye on this.

    Mediocre at best going to expect something like this from mashimas new series as well.
    Too bad there is no female lead right off the bat again.
