posted on by Karen Ressler
The manga's story follows Kimura Shigenari, a real-life samurai who served Toyotomi Hideyori. Kimura fights in the Siege of Osaka in 1615, but is hit with a mysterious light. He wakes up in a land ruled by England's legendary King Arthur.
Shimotsuki launched Brave10 S, the continuation of her original Brave10 manga, in the first issue of Monthly Comic Gene in 2011, and ended the series in March 2016. She also serialized the one-volume Brave10 Tawamure spinoff series (pictured at right) from June 2016 to January 2017.
North American publisher Digital Manga Publishing licensed Shimotsuki's A Century of Temptation manga and published it in 2013. Tokyopop published Shimotsuki's Madness manga in 2009, and Udon Entertainment published her Devil Kings Basara manga in 2008.
