A gag 4-koma manga about a girl named Medaka who enrolls in a school that will let anyone in as long as they're literate. This included a talking dog and a talking cat, which shouldn't be surprising since the principal has a fish for a head. Crazy, funny stuff! The story is set in the Edo period of feudal Japan. It revolves around Yamada Asaemon, nicknamed Kubikiri Asa (literally "Neck-chopper Asa", often transliterated as "Decapitator Asaemon"), a ronin who is responsible for testing new swords for the shogun. The character is based on a real-life line of sword-testers who served the Tokugawa Shogunate up to the early 19th century.
