Masterless samurai Akitsu Masanosuke is a skilled and loyal swordsman, but his naïve, diffident nature has time and again caused him to be let go by the lords who have employed him. Hungry and desperate, he becomes a bodyguard for Yaichi, the charismatic leader of a gang called "Five Leaves." Although disturbed by the gang's sinister activities, Masa begins to suspect that Yaichi's motivations are not what they seem. And despite his misgivings, the deeper he's drawn into the world of the Five Leaves, the more he finds himself fascinated by these devious, mysterious outlaws.

While there are some comic moments, this is a serious drama that really speaks to the human condition. The message of friendship is an uplifting one though and the ending will leave you with a smile.

Art: 10/10
- The art is the first thing that caught my eye when reading this manga. It is somewhat bizarre and at first glance can feel a bit creepy. However, once I began paying attention to the art, I fell in love with it. It is truly a masterpiece. Natsume Ono is perfectly able ...
