In the age of civil war, when the shadow of Nobunaga Oda was still cast over the land, the warlord Furuta Sasuke lost his soul to the tea ceremony. While war shook the world around him, he faced his own conflict between his desire for promotion and his love for his art.
Rather than leave this area undeservedly blank I shall offer my own unworthy review as a superior alternative. This series is incredibly entertaining, moreso than the premise or title might suggest. It is an incredibly novel and interesting alternative take on the MUCH portrayed Sengoku period, one focusing on grown men and their obsession with aesthetics, especially tea ceremony and its implements. Historically tea ceremony tea ceremony was enjoying the apex of its popularity under Nobunaga and Hideyoshi, and it's very rare for a story to focus so heavily on the fads and trends of four centuries prior, but it comes across brilliantly if one thinks about it. Some things change remarkably little. I'm very sad that this series is, as I'm writing this, orphaned by subbing groups. Beyond episode 4 only one's strong knowledge of Japanese will allow them to continue enjoying it. Hopefully this changes.
