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!

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (22/? eps)
I feel quite conflicted about this manga. Having dropped it in the middle of reading and coming back later, I do have to say it draws you in. I could talk about the story, but there are others that do that, so i see no point. Rather i will tell you how i see it.
The art is beautiful. The backgrounds are usually the stars of the pages, followed closely by the costume design. I, myself, rather enjoyed one of the main character’s androgynous design, but the other main one had a somewhat plain look. I guess it goes well with their role in ...
