Description:
Initially set in the aftermath of World War II,​ Ayako focuses its attention on the Tenge clan,​ a once-powerful family of landowners living in a rural community in northern Japan.​ The war and American occupation have begun to erode the fabric that binds them all together.​ The increasing influence of political,​ economic and social change begins to tear into the many Tenge siblings,​ while a strange marriage agreement creates resentment between the eldest son and his sire.​

When the family seems to have completely fallen apart,​ they decide to turn their collective rage on what they believe to be the source of their troubles: the newest member of the Tenge family,​ the youngest sister Ayako.​

Story and art by Osamu Tezuka.​
