Description
From ADV:

With Japan in the midst of a bloody revolution, an elite cadre of samurai swordsmen known as the Shinsengumi must protect the embattled city of Kyoto. Tetsunosuke Ichimura has spent his life dreaming of working at the Shinsengumi, and his wish has recently been fulfilled. As a page for Vice-Commander Hijikata Toshizo, he is privy to a wealth of secrets and is among Japan's highest ranking officials, some of whom are actual historical figures. When a strange gun-toting swordsman, Ryoma Sakamoto, recognizes Tetsunosuke and his brother as the sons of someone he calls the "Peacemaker," trouble brews and the other Shinsengumi run the outsider out of town.

Full of action, this sword-fighting and gun-toting story is centered on the bakumatsu, a chaotic and bloody time of revolution that would ultimately result in the disbanding of the samurai and the opening up and Westernization of Japan. Fifteen-year-old Tetsu must witness the war around him, and perhaps gain some amount of wisdom about the samurai.

the other 5th volume of peacemaker kurogane came out, the one after chrono nanae announced her hiatus for PMK. I haven't read it yet, but it IS 15+.

You have to start with the prequel: Shinsengumi Imon Peacemaker
Otherwise, it won't make any sense.
The anime by the same name covers the events in "Shinsengumi Imon Peacemaker", not "Peacemaker Kurogane"

Most manga are serials composed of episodes.

Really good

This series was quite good, actually. I first watched the anime and really liked that so I went out to buy the manga novels too. The storyline of the manga, however, starts after the events in the series and we do get to learn a lot more about the characters. The art is nice, though it does lack that perfection that gives off the animated like sensation that a lot of excellent mangas have. The plot is good though, and it also sometimes requires you to work your mind. All in all, not a bad story at all. 9/10

This series is confusing. It is serial, but feels episodic. The art is decent but nothing great. I regret reading the 2 first volumes.
