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?

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.

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

Okay I read have only read book one but want to read the remaining seven.I had never heard about when my mom stopped by a second hand bookstore and bought me a bunch of manga such as Beauty pop,etc this book caught my attention partly because being 13 i was surprised to learn my mother failed to notice the rated m square on the front cover. I read the back and was surprised it was published by shojo beat beacause it sounded like josei to me. I decided to read it right away having nothing else to do (the tv was occupied, no anime for read more
