Eight years ago, Tsubaki, a daughter of a successful businessman, was reluctantly given to the Yoshiwara, the red light district of Tokyo, after a tragic fire burned down the entire family's wealth and belongings. Shin, a childhood friend of Tsubaki's, coldly turned his back on her now that she was poor. Furious, Tsubaki, threw herself into becoming a top oiran girl to beguile him with her looks and then reject him one day! But plans are never as easy as they seem. For one, the beautiful and cold-hearted Takao stands in her way.

I'm surprised to see Oiran Girl has never been reviewed on MAL. Although it's a regular historical shoujo in terms of story (heroine that lost all her fortune, forbidden love, the dashing hero who protects her and is obviously deeply in love but is bound by the shackles of their previous master/servant relationship, the obvious historical setting of Yoshiwara, yada yada, you know the drill), the delicious art and the most wonderful expressions of the characters turn it into a worthy read.

I've always thought courtesan houses interesting, seeing the culture difference between Japan and America. In lower terms, people would describe such courtesans as "high-class prostitutes". But a deeper dive into the culture reveals more of what the courtesans offered before sexual services, such as entertainment in multiple arts like tea-serving, dancing, and more. Don't get me wrong; Oiran Girl isn't a super informative manga about Tsubaki's transition from mere girl to oiran. Though the manga is built on history, it's more dependent upon the new characters and conflicts introduced every chapter that could threaten Tsubaki's ascension to top courtesan or possibly reveal oiran Takao's greatest ...
