Yugiri, Chapter 39 - Lively kabuki scene of Ichikawa Danjuro VIII as the sumo wrestler Kinugawa Tanizo struggling with two opponents. He leans forward, tripping one attacker with his knee while the other butts under his arm from behind. He scowls angrily, grabbing hold of the end of his enemy's scabbard at right. He wears a tan outer kimono patterned with puppies that is pushed down to the waist, over a red under robe with a floral pattern, and a fringed apron. An interesting subject.
