Akechi Mitsuhide (1526-1582) was a general of the tyran Oda Nobunaga. After Nobunaga had reprimanded and publicly ridiculed him, Akechi Misuhide revolted against his lord. He succeeded and Nobunaga was forced to commit suicide. But another loyal general, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, came to revenge the death of Nobunaga and defeated the army of Akechi Mitsuhide at Uchidehama. When Akechi Mitsuhide fled from the battle field, he fell into the hands of riotous farmers and was slain. A famous print by Yoshitoshi Tsukioka shows the moment when Mitsuhide arrives on his horse and a farmer armed with a spear is awaiting him behind bamboo bushes.

Atozuri is the Japanese word for "late printing". It has become a synonym for late printings of Shin Hanga prints made in the 1980s and later, but from the original woodblocks. The word "atozuri" was first introduced by Watanabe Print Corporation to categorize these late printings. They are also called Heisei editions.
