5.0 out of 5 stars The rich, intricate, and touching saga continues... 26 April 2010
By lux - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Lovers of richly detailed, intricately plotted, and touchingly romantic historical manga can find no better bet than "Ooku: the Inner Chambers". In Volume Three, the love between those two "cold, hurt, bedraggled chicks", the Shogun Iemitsu and ex-monk Arikoto, has taken deep root. Unfortunately, it has borne no fruit, i.e., an heir to continue the Tokugawa rulership of Japan. And so the search for a suitably virile sire among the noble estates, dojos, and increasingly manless streets of Edo continues, led as always by the ever-conniving Lady Kasuga. Through a flashback interlude revealing the harsh circumstances that shaped Lady K's formidable character, the reader gains a measure of admiration and even sympathy for this steely, cunning, and devoted old retainer. As the Redface Pox spreads death and disaster throughout the land - and into Edo Castle's Inner Chambers! - the young Shogun, Arikoto, and the rapidly-maturing Gyokuei must prove themselves apt pupils of her lessons in manipulation and statecraft, even as their personal lives grow ever more complicated...

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and dramatic 29 Mar 2011
By T. Dubinsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The third book in the series focused more on the female Shogun and her role in producing an heir to continue the Tokugawa lineage. This book really tugged at my heart, seeing the difficulties that she and Arikoto go through being in love and yet not being able to conceive an heir. It also focuses more on the gender disparities and that despite the Redface Pox, women still are simplified into giving birth to male heirs as their most valuable asset. What I loved though was the female Shogun's spirit and intelligence in both personal and political matters. Definitely a great addition in the series and I look forward to reading more.
