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?

The last time I read this manga was about 10 years ago. I remembered this manga 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 "Butterflies, Flowers". And with the time that have gone by, 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 eventually had to find work elsewhere after her family lost their rich read more

In general, shoujo features more innocent romance, while josei doesn't shy away from delving into the sexual side of relationships, with a more mature approach to storytelling and issues. 'Chou yo Hana yo' fits firmly into the second category, its story built on office romance with a little twist. It revolves around Chouko Kuze, whose family lost its fortune and is now struggling to stay afloat. She gets a job as a secretary under a very inappropriate boss, who turns out to be none other than the servant who used to tend to her as a child — and still insists on doing that, in read more

I have read the first five volumes, and I am eagerly awaiting more!

The story bascially revolves around a mistress/butler relationship - although now, many years later, they are poor. Chouka has just started working, and who should be her boss, but her previous servant, Masayuki. Whose opening question appears to be "are you a virgin?".

And this pretty much sets the tone. It is pretty much a humourous exploration of the relationship between these two. And their relationship has so many levels. That of master and servant, that of boss and subordinant, that of boyfriend and girlfriend.

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

What happens if the person you love is your superior as well as your servant? Well you got to read this manga to figure it out!

If your are looking for a really serious romance, this is not the one you should be reading. This manga is a farce (a type of comedy that uses improbable situations, physical humor and silliness to entertain).

The story revolves around these two main character: Doumoto and Chouko. Doumoto is Chouko's lover, superior, and servant. All these three panels of their lifestyle creates a humorous romance story. It is not really a serious romance but there are moments when it really read more
