A brief about The Blue Wolves of Mibu

Written and illustrated by Tsuyoshi Yasuda, The Blue Wolves of Mibu started in Kodansha's shōnen manga magazine Weekly Shōnen Magazine on October 13, 2021. The series ended its first part on April 17, 2024, and resumed the following week with its Shinsengumi Arc.

Kodansha has collected its chapters into individual tankōbon volumes. The first volume was released on February 17, 2022. As of April 17, 2024, thirteen volumes have been released. At Anime Expo 2023, Kodansha USA announced that they licensed the series for English publication. In France, the manga is licensed by Kana.

Kodansha USA introduces the story:

"Nio is an orphan who can’t help dreaming of a better world. In this action-packed manga, he meets two men who show him how much a few swords can change history. This riveting samurai series from the acclaimed creator of Days shares its setting with Rurouni Kenshin and chronicles the founding of the Shinsengumi by handsome and volatile men fighting for justice…and for themselves!"


The story follows Young orphan Nio in 1863 Japan. It is the twilight of the shogunate, and Japan is on the cusp of monumental change. The streets of the nation’s capital are soaked in blood as political upheaval and rising tensions between masterless, wandering ronin and government samurai set the stage for one of the most turbulent times in Japan’s history. Among all of this, Nio has a burning passion for justice and a desire to change the world for the better.

One day, he crosses paths with two men who will become central figures of the coming revolution: Hijikata Toshizo and Okita Souji. These men are two of the founding members of a group of hated ronin known as the Miburo—who would later become known as the Shinsengumi. Inspired by the efforts of the “Blue Miburo,” Nio decides to join the ranks. He believes this will help carve a path to the world he wishes to see.
