The series is set in feudal Japan and follows the story of a skilled samurai named Yoshimori. But what sets Yoshimori apart is his unique ability to travel through time, which he uses to protect his loved ones and fight against powerful enemies.

The manga promises to be an exciting blend of action, adventure, and historical fiction. Fans can expect epic sword fights, breathtaking landscapes, and an immersive storyline that will keep them on the edge of their seats.

If you’re interested in the history of Japan, this will entertain you a lot

If you’ve completed compulsory education in Japan, you’re likely familiar with the history that unfolds in the manga. However, if this is your first exposure to Japanese history, the manga offers an entertaining and thrilling story of a young master seeking revenge.

  • It’s important to note that the story is historical fiction and intended solely for readers’ enjoyment.
  • And as it’s the infamous Clover Works, the attention to detail and artistry of the animation will undoubtedly leave viewers in awe.

How is this manga similar to Yusei Matsui’s previous works?

One of the key similarities between The Elusive Samurai and Matsui’s earlier works is the focus on characters who are strong, yet flawed. Like Korosensei in Assassination Classroom, Yoshimori is a complex and multi-dimensional character with his own set of quirks and flaws.

In addition, Matsui’s creative use of genre-blending is once again on display in The Elusive Samurai. It offers readers a distinctive and captivating experience by blending action, adventure, and historical fiction elements.

With the success of Assassination Classroom, the creator Yusei Matsui has proven himself in the manga industry. And if the anime is any indication, The Elusive Samurai will be no exception.
