Description of Title: "Kozure Okami," or “Lone Wolf and Cub,” is a series of Japanese films, TV dramas or Manga created by the writer Koike Kazuo and the artist Kojima Goseki.

This piece is a parody of “Kozure-Okami,” or “Lone Wolf and Cub.” It is originally a Jidaigeki or period Manga that was created in collaboration with a writer Kazuo Koike and an artist Goseki Kojima, and serialized on a magazine “Weekly Manga Action” from 1970. Starring Kinnosuke Yorozuya who is a versatile Jidaigeki actor of the Showa period, its TV drama adaptation was broadcasted in 1973, and became popular for the character of Daigoro, son of the protagonist Ogami Itto. In this work, a little Daigoro watches outside and then rushes out when he finds his father with food on both hands. The quality of the background images, such as rainy forest, the grain and a Japanese roof tiles Kawara of a little hut, and a clouded sky, are superb.
