Synopsis

Laid-back and somewhat absent-mindedly seductive umbrella craftsman Shiro (sans loincloth) and hot-blooded officer Kojiro, who stands against all things undisciplined, get involved in a bloody and erotic thrill-ride in an off-kilter town. This action packed jack-of-all-trades will have you swooning at its sexiness and leave you more addicted than opium! Tsujiki Nao's very first collection of works!

In a quirky, fantastical-historical Japan, Yamada is a policeman who considers himself a missionary of good citizenship. He gets so bogged down with helping ladies carry home their groceries, that he forgets his real police duties, like solving murder cases. So when he meets Shiro, a young man who lives like a slob, can't cook, and hates to wear clothes, he quickly takes the guy under his wing. First order of business? Get the guy to put on some underwear.

I'll get it out of the way now in case it's an issue for anyone: it's scanlated by a group that does read more

This is a manga that will have you checking for updates constantly. For the art, characters, and story.

Story: So far it seems to be episodic with an over arcing plot line following the adventures (and pasts) of an umbrella salesman named Shiro and a policeman named Kojiro, in a place that seems reminiscent of Meiji era Japan. I say seems because the only way I can really describe the setting is steampunk, Japan-style. The author also seems to love huge plot twists, and pulls them off in a way that makes it actually believable, which is quite fun. Though there is a main read more

Story: Set in a historical period of time which follows the concept of human to human interaction and differences made on the basis of class, creed, religion and socio-politics. Showcasing the lighter and the darker aspects of human behaviour, certainly a fine take on it. Packed with utter hilarity, sarcasm, borderline jokes and bromance as the 'cherry on top', now someone who is intolerant to the romanticization of guy to guy, this will not be your cup of tea, because it's filled with it, but don't get the wrong idea of this being a shounen-ai because it isn't. The highlighting of comical aspects in a read more

although i personally do not particularly enjoy coming back to read this manga each time it updates, mainly because of its plot, i feel like this is very re-readable manga.
the plot mainly consists of various cases that shiro and the officer get involved in, and are presented in a way that i have learned not to try to solve the case as i read along because at the end i'll always be wrong (it was the vase this whole time!) most of these cases include what i would describe as really messed up scenarios and situations, but because of the ridiculousness of how these read more
