Genso Gynaecocracy (Fantasy Gynaecocracy) is a collection of 12 manga short stories by Blade Of The Immortal artist Hiroaki Samura. Each of the shorts were first published in the manga magazine “Rakuen Le Paradis”.
In general the mood of the stories are lighter in tone as compared to Blade Of The Immortal, dark comedy, if you will. Some of the stories take references from Japanese folklore ( like Kaguyahime, for example ), while others take on a more ambiguous setting, and no specific period/era is indicated. Some nudity/graphic violence is to be expected, as with most of Hiroaki’s works.
Fans of Hiroaki Samura will want to check this out. It is quite unlikely that this will be picked up for an English translated version. Actually, are any of Samura’s comics (besides Blade) available in English ?
