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!

Adekan was partially published digitally in English by JManga on June 1 and August 1, 2011, respectively first 2 volumes.

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

If you like beautiful artwork, pretty guys, comedy, action & bloodshed. Latch on to this series like a rabid dog. The artwork is completely gorgeous - the centerfolds & covers blow me away every time.

Along with glorious eye candy, the story & content is very interesting. It goes over things like caste systems, mental illness, brutality, sexuality & much more. This is also one of the first series I've read where male characters who are very feminine are actual total bad asses. They not only have strength & skill in things such as fighting - but also are able to control people emotionally to 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
