Ink and colors on paper
13 11/16 x 9 5/16 in. (35 x 24 cm)
The title is a pun connected with "One Hundred Battles, One Hundred Victories." Kobayashi studied Western newspaper caricatures, especially the ones by London journalist Charles Wirgman (1832-91). He applied the new humorous looks to the SIno-Japanese and Russo-Japanese war print series, which became very popular.

A very slim Asian man with a mustache and thin beard, clothed in a green robe that is slipping off his shoulders, peers at what may be a framed mirror held by a small man who kneels before him. In the background, a battle rages on.
