In Chapter 9, Paul Sutcliffe investigates postmodern representations of the Edo period in manga. The historical significance of the Edo period, with its influx of Western culture that marked the end of Tokugawa seclusion and led to the modernisation of Japan, is a popular subject for manga. In this evaluation of Edo graphism Sutcliffe focuses on the work Hanzō no mon by two of Japan’s most renowned gekiga artists, Koike Kazuo and Kojima Goseki. Through the story of the historical ninja Hanzō Hattori and his master Tokugawa Ieyasu, he explores Azuma Hiroki’s notion of a ‘Superflat Japanese Postmodernity’, wherein nostalgia for an idealised and romanticised Edo period is recreated as an alternative social and cultural trope to postwar Americanisation.

On the surface, the educational value of Niji-iro no Trotsky would appear to be on a par with any historical novel, because the author follows the basic outlines of history while embellishing the private lives and thoughts of historical figures. However, O’Dwyer questions whether rekishi manga is analogous to historical fiction, which uses the printed word to illuminate as well as embellish the interiority of its characters, arguing that Yasuhiko depicts Manchukuo as a refuge from reality for its Japanese residents.
