    ABACUS AND SWORD (2010)
    Price:  $12.99 

    Description:

    Bushi no kakeibo - Based on actual journals and accounting records, Abacus and Sword chronicles the decline of the Samurai age in 19th-century Japan.

    They say the pen is mightier – what about the abacus? An accounting geek with zero sword fighting talent, Naoyuki is hardly your run-of-the-mill Samurai. Nonetheless, he defends his Lord and family faithfully, using an unlikely weapon: the abacus.

    With a sense of honor as exacting as any warrior’s and a rigorous ethic of honesty even in the midst of dire poverty, Naoyuki (nicknamed “the Mad Abacus” by his rivals) distinguishes himself as a hero for the approaching modern age.

    With a nudge to Japan’s romantic view of the office worker as modern-day Samurai, ‘Abacus and Sword’ reimagines the Classic Samurai drama as it follows Naoyuki and his family as they serve their Lord not with the sword but with the abacus.
