The English version is out from North Atlantic Books from April the 3rd.
And the Japanese version 西郷隆盛と西南戦争 is coming out in May from Kodansha.
I'm happy with this book - its the kind of history book that I would have really liked myself, when I was a teenager getting into reading about history.
"A gripping graphic novel describing the uprising of 1887, when the old style samurai were crushed in a bloody conflict with the imperial army that ended samurai power in Japan. Historically accurate and with an easy-to-read format, The Satsuma Rebellion is Volume 2 in the Illustrated Japanese History series that began with Black Ships.On the same subject as NHK television's Taiga drama, now showing weekly in 2018.”
