Re: What Book Have You Read Recently?
Rereading Digger and reading Hari no Hana by Inariya Fusanosuke.
The second one is based on the life of Ashiya Douman, a Buddhist priest in the Chowa era. Inariya-sensei usually does WWII-based manga, but this one has really caught my attention with all of the political intrigue and the machinations even within the Buddhist temples.
I have picked up a few interesting epithets from Digger, including one that, according to Ms. Vernon, roughly translates to "Is that my pickax in your gut? And is this your pickax in my eye?" and another that is Digger's battle-cry, "Remember Tunnel Seventeen!"
