Our heroine is a girl who lives as a geisha in Japan. She has a male childhood friend who's always been kind to her and is her favorite. He's a painter, only he paints on human body parts, and she loves it when he paints beautiful butterflies on her arms. She goes to visit him one day and finds a naked woman lying in his room. Immediately after, she gets a customer who's rich and very interested in her. The thought of being away from her friend pains her, but is everything really too late?

This is actually the first manga that made me cry, I was so overcome with emotion that I was actually crying for the main characters. I chose this manga because I had nothing to read so I started reading it to pass time. But as I read on, I couldn't stop.
The art was very good, its actually one of the best I've read.
Each character had their own personalties. I especially like how the mangaka portrayed the female character, she's so cute, clumsy and devoted (to the guy she loved)!! I just fell in love with them because... I don't know.... hehe sorry... I can't read more

when i firist started to read this manga,i was just looking for something short to read, and i wasn't really expect so much out of it. since it is a two volumes manga, i didn't expect there is a lot of characters or even story development from it. However, surprising , it turns out much better than i thought.
As it is mentioned in the summary, it is about a geisha, called butterfly, and the things that she encounter. however, there is only one or two chapters at the begining when she is actually a geisha. the story is mostly read more

A regular romance story that you pick off the shelf. The whole story surrounded a shallow love between a geisha (the party kind not the prostitute kind) and a tattooist (who turns out to be rich out of his dog-gone mind).

During the story, I swear, I've read some of the cheesiest lines I've ever seen. You know, the ones that every cheesy love story/movie has.

At first, I thought it was going to be an interesting story, at least different from every other romance story since it was about a geisha. It had much potential but instead of it from being a great story, it read more

I read it because i was bored and looking for a good read, but his manga had me hooked from the first chapter. I don't usually read shoujo manga's with serious themes, but this one was an exception. It had just enough humor, but some parts were so sad they almost made me cry. It wasn't a typical cheesy shoujo manga, which was quite refreshing, and it had a unique story line. I gave this manga an overall score of 10. The story was interesting and emotional; it felt realistic. The art was great and I'm a fan of this mangaka. The characters were believable; read more
