Choko Kuze is the sensible daughter of a venerable family who went bankrupt. She joins a real estate company as an entry-level office worker, but her eccentric boss is harder on her than anyone else in the company! After hearing him inadvertently call her "milady", she realizes he was the young servant boy she knew as a child. At work he's a tyrant, but after hours he insists on treating her like a lady of the nobility. Is romance even possible for a couple locked in such a crazy role reversal?

I like the art. I sometimes find Chouko's ...

Right off the bat, the story is unusual for a Yuki Yoshihara manga: her ...

The last time I read this manga was about 10 years ago. I remembered it being really funny to me with all the crude humor and slapstick, which at the time really attracted me to this manga; besides the artwork of course.

However...crude humor is definitely subjective when it comes to ‘Butterflies, Flowers’. With the time that have gone by, and a lot of growing up to do, my love for this manga dissipated into the abyss.

Story: 4/10

The plot is simple: girl grows up in a rich household with maids and servants; she was attached to a servant who had to find work elsewhere ...
