Hanafuda tells the supernatural tale of Izuna, a noble turned demon hunter, travelling across Japan to slay the oni that stole the life of his beloved Lady Kiri. Izuna encounters a young fox that possesses the ability to shapeshift and the duo journey together to exact revenge on the oni. Hanafuda, or "flower cards," is a Japanese card game where each suit of cards represents a month and flower. Like the game, each chapter in Hanafuda corresponds to a different suit.

monosyllable (All reviews)
A remarkably beautiful book, filled with gorgeous, stylish erotic full-colour illustration throughout that easily earns a ten for the quality of its artwork. It would be great to see more in this style from author and artist Okama. The tale itself is interestingly mythological and rewarding to read, telling a moving and well-crafted period story of kitsune-human love. The characters are fascinating both in personality and design. The erotic scenes are mostly more disturbingly beautiful than arousing (bright purple penises aren't very titillating, not to mention the whole snake thing). Strongly recommended for lovers of Japanese folklorific stories and fine art.

A shortish, stunningly illustrated, full-colour hentai manga that easily transcends the hentai genre.

Rather than use any of it's pornographic imagery for titillation, Hanafuda uses it to tell its tragic story with no holds barred.
the plot feels kind of Shakespearian (if Shakespeare had been a pervert), it's complex, fast-paced and dramatic. There's identity theft, murder, kidnapping, forced prostitution, beastiality, rape, even pedophelia (presented without holding back visually, so don't even think about reading this if those things offend you). All of it takes place in a fantasy/folklore, Edo period-esque setting with absolutely incredible art (probably the best I've ever seen in manga). More read more

You know, I was actually surprised by this manga. Plot and hentai do not go hand-in-hand. This is one of the few exceptions. Here's the big catch though: this hentai-based manga with some elements of plot, but a plot-based manga with some elements of hentai. For that, I have to give this manga a higher score since it obviously is atypical.

A fair warning though, the plot is pretty confusing. The author even admits this in the credits. But if you're not a big fan of hentai at all, you'll be in for a surprise. The love story between kitsune and humans is something that'll definitely read more
