"Sean Michael Wilson has authored a unique line of manga-style books on Japanese themes. This latest edition, The Satsuma Rebellion, with artist Akiko Shimojima, portrays the real last stand of the samurai and the central figure--Saigo Takamori, the subject of NHK television's year-long historical drama in 2018--with style and accuracy."
--Davide Calzetti, Japanese historical researcher
