Behind the Story of “Blood and Tears” – Welcome!
Welcome to Behind the Story of “Blood & Tears”! I invite you to learn more about Usaburo, O-Hatsu and O-Bun, and the world they inhabit.
While I have taken great pains to research its historical accuracy, Blood & Tears is a work of fiction. You may recognize people, events, locations, objects, context and images; however, please do not assume they are historical fact.
Please be respectful and properly credit anything you share or use from this site. You can find attributions and sources in the photo album Illustrations, Sources, Credits. Images, videos and other media created by sabakuINK (me) are Creative Commons licensed, CC-BY-SA 4.0.
Lastly, a shout-out to the Samurai Archives Japanese history site. Whenever I needed to source a reference, invariably their site would be my first stop.
New episode every Monday!
