As of October 23, 2019,
there are 37 chapters, so I organized chapters 1-6 into one.
And I found some problems with past work so edited them.
And the name of some character has also changed, but the main character has not changed.
About hints to read manga before

The first chapter
EDO period (About 1860)
A certain ship
It is an example Katana
You have a message from Kaneyama
I was waiting…!!
"Sā-Sā(さぁさぁ)=※Words to welcome and invite people" step and right up!
It's an insect～! bell cricket!
Sā-Sā Come one! Come all!
It's a beautiful sounds! insect only for the current season!
Beautiful ladies there! Do you want buy it?
Hey! Ichibei!=(Ichibei=his name) You came again!
Oh! long time no see!
How were you?
I'm good! Crickets are also doing great!
So…Do you buy one case?
Comeon…I bought it before…
And I think everyone is not interested in insects…
Because looking at other news
Wow…It seems that a famous Katana has been found…
Wow…Rare katana found…?
It's more than it being unusual,
this is the Shirasu toyokazu's "Meitou(名刀)=※Excellent Katana"
Shirasu toyokazu…Oh, he is master of Katana making, right?
…Sure, It seems that the first Katana made by Shirasu was found…
It has been lost for a long time…
Really? So…it was good
…Maybe it's not so good…
Because it’s probably Kane yama who found the Katana
Kaneyama! That guy of the new government? That guy's story is all bad story…
Recently, finding various Katana…that guy?
Moreover, it seems that guy sell it to foreigners a lot
New government's guys sell Japanese treasure one after another to foreigners...
Maybe this Katana…!
Not only that! Nature and fields are messed up by their urban development!
Yeah! They say they are Restoration, but only destruction work and dirty money making! I can not forgive them!
Hey! we should raise more voices!
If we stay like this our life will be painful…Complain to politicians!
Hou…It's a audacious
Trying to strike the new government...
But I do not think that it is wise judgment…
"Yabai(ヤバい)=※Dangerous"…They are the new government's guys…!
Aa…well…I got on a little bit cocky...
Of course I do not feel like doing that…
What's wrong? You do not have the momentum of the moment ago, Mr. Rebel…
Recently I heard that the number of rebellious people is increasing, I came to this place and it was right decision
No No! I'm not Rebel! I am…look! "Mushiya!(虫屋)=※A parson who sells insects"
Just selling this bell cricket!
bell cricket… I see, Is your job a Mushiya?
"Soudesu!(そうです)=Yeah" how is it? Do you get one case?
Well, I have to introduce my job as well…
O…Oi(おい)=Hey! Are you ok!?
listen…A revolution is about to take place right now…We will not forgive the disturbing person
No matter what little bug…
Every noisy bugs will never… escape!!!
…who the hell are you?
Who the hell are you?
You…What is that eyes…!
This guy…Don't move…!
Kukkukku…rebellious people and a samurai…We came to this town and were a correct answer…
You guys, Play with this Mr.samurai
You guys 3 intend to fighting!?
Fight fair and square!!
Noisy guys…After the samurai's play is over…next play with you…wait as it is
Dammit! I have to help him!
wait! They are not opponents we can resist!
The other day, I heard that a samurai of a certain village was torn down…And it seems that the whole village was baked…
Probably they are doing…Perhaps they are masters hired during the rise up of a new government…
I am sorry but...We are helpless…
Apparently, your countryman?
it seems you did not know we were new government…
I will admit that justice but ignorance is empty…
what will you do? You can escape if you want to run away…
Villagers are sacrificed
The word of the soul's rotten person is poison…I do not feel like listening to your Idiotic speech any more
Apologize to the villagers, And Go away!
That guy's eyes…and foot forces…
Maybe…This guy's different from ordinary person…!?
finally you talked…Apologize!?
You seem to be like a "Hanshu(藩主)=※Village leader" of the past!
Do you still play a samurai of justice?
Apparently I have to let you understand…The days of old samurai like you are over
From now on, our new government will change this country
So Age changes…
in the name of New Meiji government!!
What's is now?
He is very strong!!
Yes! Keep it!!
Kku…!! Noisy Villagers…!!
What are you guys doing!?
Lend a hand!!
This samurai seems to be much more skilled than I thought…
Can you win the 2 of us?
Do you still do it?
A…!! Watch out!
Next is my turn!!
I am sorry…Now we also…
Try not to move anymore,
I will fight alone
Do not let me say over and over!
You guys out of hand.
And…I have a personal fate to this guy.
Your "Waza(技)=※technique" showed me…
They are also receiving gifted education in foreign countries from early childhood…So to be honest I am surprised by your skills…However…
I am different level from them…!!
"Oi(おい)=※Hey" Is he okay?
Ah…Unfortunately, We are three mans fighting, but this situation…
Keep looking silently.
Since you guys just entered this unit…So will not know his strength.
We can not win against him…even if 3 of us fight at the same time.
Understand? So Keep looking silently…
Good…! To Avoiding my "Hitofuri(一振り)=※1 swing. in this case the meaning of attack"
But…My Attacks are still going on!!!
Only running away will not win!!
That technique you are using from a while ago…
Is that Ueshiba "Ryu(流)?=※style"
It's a nostalgic style…But for me it's not a good memory
…Do you know him?
Yeah, I told you a while ago…This is the "fate"
My father lost to Ueshiba…And lost both "Chii(地位)=※status" and "Meiyo(名誉)=※honor"
Old days, there was a meeting in the military…on which "Bujutsu(武術)=※Japanese martial arts" to use when it comes to war with other countries.
It became a "Kumite(組手)=※Practice game" formula to judge a better Bujutsu…
Those in the military focused on the skills and style of the master…
My father's opponent was Ueshiba.
And my father lost to him…
A Bujutsu that uses opponent's power to defeat opponents as it flows…
The Bujutsu to show the difference in power without robbing a person's life is beautiful, his technique was blessed like a kind of art…
And on the contrary My father who lost the Kumite lost everything…with the position, honor, and…Samurai's pride…
Do you understand?
I fulfill the honor my father could not fulfill
I will become a part of the new Meiji government…and change this country from scratch!
Economic power and military force not to be defeated to any country, and gain overwhelming power!
Do you also want to see as a person aiming for "strength"?
That moment when Japan dominates the world...The new Meiji Government will accomplish that...!
Ueshiba beat down my father and crushed
But I will not forsake you ....
"Douda?=※How about?" I will recommend you…
That power should be used to build a new "Teikoku(帝国)=※empire" ...
…What did you do to villagers for ambition?
Revolution requires purification and law reform…
In order to line up in a powerful country, Unification of citizens is necessary…
We can not let the rebels be forgiven
I see…In order to strengthen this country you guys will repress people with violence And vanishing the village…Is that your justice? If so…
I am not at all interested in such "justice"
"Naruhodo=※I see"…Negotiation is a breakup
Hha!…To refusing an invitation from him…That's stupid samurai!
Ah…That samurai's This is the end
Then you are no more use…
a while ago, It is good as a samurai mind that you do not use Katanas easily…but…
I will slash you more and more without reserve!
If you defeated me, will you continue villager's purging again after that?
Especially not only those cheeky villagers,
If there are other villagers against us, all the villagers will take "responsibility"
"Yaharina=※As I thought"…
I do not like useless battles...especially the battle against guys like "Those who like useless conflict"…
However, that my something action made the situation worse…it is also fact.
I can not let the villagers any further inconvenience…
Then…this "Sekinin(責任)=※responsibility" must be fulfilled…!!
Fu…Anyway, I will not let you escape
Ueshiba style's samurai…!
Let me see it again ... Ueshiba style's technique…
And I…crush it!!!
What happens to those who opposed us!
Such a samurai are powerlessness in his...
"O, Oi!=※Hey" what happened!?
If you feel a difference in ability, go away right now, And promised not to add harm the villagers anymore ...
If you do not like it I will keep on "this"
His attack should have been predictable…
When I noticed I was being thrown…?
Did I not see any of his attacks?
No! Be calm…!His Ueshiba style is mainly counter type ...
Decrease my attacking motion and the moment he attacks me…slash his arm!
First, let a this guy avoid my attack! after that…
What's!? cut off my move before attacking yet…
This guy…Too fast…!!
"Nazeda※=Why"…Why suddenly his attack…
Look properly…The speed of his technique is totally different a while ago…
He was…hiding the true power…!!
Shit…! Why…It’s not supposed to happen…!!
You can not win me any more…"Akiramero=※give it up"
Your heart is in a state of chaos…You can not make an accurate attack under such conditions…
Even if you continue more, you will only show a foolish figure…
"Isagiyoku(潔く)※=not obsessed" go away.
And do not hand out to the villagers anymore
Does it mean like this?
"You should leave with the same humiliation as your father"…?
Use a Katana
You heard it…
If you have pride as a samurai, take a match with a Katana, And give me defeat…Until then I will not decide my defeat…
If you do not accept this game I will erase the villagers…!
This guy…still saying that sort of thing
"Doushita?=※How is it?"
Do you have no guts to use a Katana?
Or is it just iron scrap?
You…Do you insult my Katana…?
Well…I am receiving your offer…
But if you would like me to use a Katana...
"Kakugo seyo…!!(覚悟せよ)=※Be Prepared…!"
Now you are talking…!
"Oi…=※Hey"Can he win?
I don't know…But one thing I know ...
If he loses we just have to give up…
Ask your name before slashing you…
I am "Yoshida Shinsaku" …You are?
…My Last name is Takeuchi(竹内)
And First name Shinden(真伝)
Takeuchi ... your name, your Katana ... and the pride of the samurai ...
Everything all break it!!
This you can not see my move!
What's! So far away…
Your "foot" movement…I could predict your next action with that.
You’re so dirty…!!
You have chosen a shameful action as a samurai…
at the time you selected it, that your heart was already broken…
Such broken Katana suits you well for you…!
The game was decided…
…Again…Will "we" lose…again?
Reason why I did not slash you…It was "the mercy of samurai"
Instead give you villagers mercy…And quietly leave here…As a Bushi…(In this case meaning "sincerity man")
All right…I will leave this place once…
But you should not think that I leave without doing anything…
Remember it…That "mercy" sometimes turns into "Naive"…
Its Naive turns into a tragedy!
You guys…What are you doing…?
Are you showing off your own power again?
You…Why are you here?
I will return that word to you as it is
Were not you supposed to be punished for burning down the village the other day?
But, Unfortunately…the punishment seems to have not been enforced…
"Fun ~tsu!=※Angry reaction"
With just one "Youjinbou(用心棒)"※Samurai version bodyguard" like you, our system does not change ...
It seems like that,
In this way you seem to repeat the same thing again…
Who is that man?
I just saw him once…
Do you know him?
Ah…That man is a man employed as a "Youjinbou" of the Meiji government "Jikketsu"
What's? Certainly I heard that there is a man who was employed in the upper government section "Jikketsu"...It's him!?
Ah, He is not so long since he was hired…Many of us have not seen him so like you
Really…? I thought that it was a more experienced older person because I heard that it is a Jikketsu Youjinbou...But if he is an Youjinbou of the Jikketsu, is he our boss?
No, He was hired as a Youjinbou but he did not become a member of the Meiji government.
Originally the government would like to use a Youjinbou from their organization or formally join the Youjinbou to the government...
But I do not know what circumstances exist but it did not come true…
But still the government would have wanted to hire him as a Youjinbou.
For the proof…look Mr. Yoshida is shrink…
You should leave, Recently you are too violent against people…
I was hired by the Meiji Government but…I am not agreeing with your government's way of doing ...So I am occasionally coming to watch your actions in this way
"Samurai dono(侍殿)=※The word meaning "Mr" of the old" and Villagers…
Apologize for the Meiji Government's violence, I am sorry for unnecessary conflict.
Here I am...
You! You watch me? Do not say bossy things! I will not allow anyone who will oppose us…
if you do not want to be slash…
