Series Information: 
It is difficult to determine if this series is by Torii Kotondo (the 5th Kiyotada) or his father Torii Kiyotada (4th). Both used the pseudonym "Kiyotada". Gekigado was Kotondo's father, but he died in August 1941 and this series dates to 1942. It is possible the series was published after Kiyotada 4th's death, but it is also possible that Kotondo published this series in honour of his father.
Artist Bio: 
The father of Torii Kotondo.
