The lord of the Manyuu clan, the ruler of Japan and Chifusa's father. He is the series' main antagonist. Through an oppressive government, he preserves the Manyuu's system, in which a woman's worth is judged by the size of her breasts.
Munenori is an old man who is always seen frowning; he wears a white overcoat, a tan kimono top, and a black hakama.
He is shown to be very cold and vengeful, issuing a death warrant for his own daughter because of her defection and spares no expense to have her stopped.
