Eiko Ozaki’s unforgettable portraits of Japan’s greatest medieval warriors, presented here for the first time in a newly edited text, along with the many stunning woodprints they and their heroic stories inspired.

- Minamoto Monjumaru Yorimitsu and his four loyal retainers, who slew the Giant of Oeyama and confronted the Monster Spider.

- Minamoto Sanmi Yorimasa, the archer who vanquished the Monster of the Black Cloud, went on to win the beautiful Lady Ayame, only to lay down his life in the garden of the Byôdô-in.

- Minamoto Hachirô Tametomo, the wild and reckless youth who joined Emperor Sutoku’s cause, yet was ultimately thwarted and had to flee to the strangely inhabited world of Oshima Island.

- Minamoto Uchiwakamaru Yoshitsune, the young warrior raised by his clan’s greatest enemy, the hated Taira Kiyomori, and who fulfilled his mother’s dying wish to revenge his murdered father.

- Musashibô Benkei, the faithful warrior-monk who joined Yoshitsune’s cause after their epic encounter on Gojô bridge, and helped him vanquish the Taira hegemony once and for all at Dan no Ura.

Your story is good and it fits into the universe. I do know in universe they mentioned some of the earlier Hunger Games, but I dont remember what they said about that years games. But I do hope you follow to the cannon of the universe! <br> But my dear sweet friend. I really, really, /really/ hate it when people say _____'s POV. I personally feel like its better to let a reader use context clues to figure it out. I also feel that if youre going to switch around someones point of view you should spend 2 or 3 chapters/parts on one character before switching. Now thats just my opinion, take it or leave it. Its also just somthing that annoys me. <br> If you do continue to use POVs please, please never switch POVs in the middle of a chapter. It annoys me beyond belife. <br> But still, its a good story and fits in cannon! Keep up the good work!
