A collection of 5 short stories:

1) Wild Butterfly
It is wartime, and Oliver takes up a job as an adjutant teacher at a small village school. When an unorthodox new teacher, Mikhail, arrives - the once somber and bleak campus becomes filled with new life. Soon the classrooms formerly stifled under strict imperial rule begin to reverberate with the children's joyful laughter...but will the ray of sunshine known as Mikhail really be able to stay forever?

2) Senyoden - Legend of the Demon Oracle
About the meeting between a traveler and a demon who was once human.

3) The Strange Tale of Shiramine
Based on the legend of Emperor Sutoku, the 75th Emperor of Japan.

4) Fangs
A young man suspects that his vampire lover is cheating on him...

5) Tomuraishi - Protector of the Dead
Someone is trying to raise the dead. Enter one truly cool dude to lay them back down.

Note -
Only the 4th story, 'Fangs' contains BL. The other four are simply short stories with a shoujo flavour.

1) Wild Butterfly
I guess it's WW2, somewhere in Europe. Happily married pacifist "seme" and his "uke" from the cover. There may be some message but nothing original. That's the point. Anti-war message is common and it isn't easy to make something memorable.

2) Senyoden - Legend of the Demon Oracle
Good oneshot with strong twist.

3) The Strange Tale of Shiramine
Well... not memorable itself but at least educational.

Jesus Christ/Wor crucified on cover? Uhm... And Myong seemed a little too young. Except those flaws it was an excellent story, disturbing and dark.

5) Tomuraishi - Protector of the Dead
Supernatural and boring oneshot.

I loved it, there's a lot of variety and all the stories are entertaining. Although most are sad I really liked them. It's been a long time since I read a manga that left such a good impression on me, it's definitely in my favorite's list :3
I recommend it, so go ahead and read it, tho' if you are looking for a fluffy and cute story this isn't it bigrazz

this is very japanese, and not just because it uses japanese mythology. just the general feel is so, even in the first story, which takes place in an imaginary world. strong stories, beautifully detailed art, minimal BL content. yeah, i can't even see how to slash these -- though i guess akihito x miki is a possibility, considering they do seem to develop feelings of care for each other, and one could stretch that, i guess. but eh, why bother; strong male bonding works for me.

i like the message best in wild butterfly, but the story that affected me most is senyouden.

oh, the first story is not supernaturally themed.

Brilliant but somewhat misleading.

This is an absolutely brilliant collection of short stories.
I do find it strange that it's classed as BL and published under DMP's June imprint - since only ONE out of the 5 stories is yaoi at all. And it would take a considerable stretch of imagination to even consider the rest "slashy", much less shounen-ai

Even so, I highly recommend this book, and not for the stories alone. Kusumoto sensei writes in very masculine style - fans of Jaryuu Dokuro should definitely read this.
DMP included 4 gorgeous, full colour pages in its excellently translated release.
