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'm compelled to say that this manga's saving grace is its art, but that makes it seem like the story is the pits when that's not really the case. Plot-wise, it is not a total yawn fest, but it's not anything spectacular. It seems to encapsulate a sort of slice-of-life feel, where the main characters go on mystery-solving adventures and meet a hodgepodge of different characters, each with their own story. And it is distinctively shoujo.

What elevates this manga is its beautiful, beautiful art. This is one of those mangas worth reading JUST for the art.

Ok I think I have repeated that point enough read more

Lithe ninja-fighters. Main characters are a guy who takes it upon himself to watch out for someone who *seems* weak and apathetic.
Slightly off-beat historical fantasies. Nice-looking guys who can fight like nobody's business.
