Known for creating manga with powerful heroes, such as “Fist of the North Star” and “KEIJI”, this is the first time Hara-sensei tells a tale of a boy growing up. Little is known about Nobunaga’s childhood, and no other manga or novel has ever attempted to tell this story.

Featuring legendary Samurai generals as interpreted by Hara sensei, this is a grand adventure of a young boy seeking to change Japan forever.
