The furigana used in the actual volumes corresponds to 'Hiou Shirabyoushi' (i.e. not a short vowel like in 'hio' or another reading like in 'hizakura'.)

Shirabyoushi were a type of female dancer that dressed in a stylized version of male clothing. 'Hiou' is a reference to 'Hiou-in' (Hiou Temple), a fictional Buddhist monastery housing an assassin training school. The heroine learned her assassin skills at this school and dresses like a shirabyoushi.

Overall, I loved the pacing and found the characters memorable and appealing. The art style is not my favorite. It's fairly generic big-eyed shoujo stuff (well-represented by the cover art above), but the page layouts are well done, and the action sequences are both dynamic and easy to follow.

The plot makes good use of Heian period tropes like power struggles between the Minister of the Left and other government officials. There isn't much supernatural content aside from a segment with a fox and plenty of martial arts physics.
