From Shoujo Manga Maniac:
Butterfly is a young geisha in training. She loves and admires her childhood friend, Chinatsu-san. He’s a tattoo artist, and he paints butterflies on her arms and is kind to her. One day she visits Chinatsu and finds a naked woman there. Butterfly is devastated at the thought of her friend with another girl all along. Soon after, a rich foreigner offers to buy Butterfly and take her to live luxuriously in a faraway land with him. She’ll miss life at home, but maybe it will help her forget Chinatsu. But does she really want to?

Memoirs of a Geisha much? lol LOVE at first read :-) I loved the history and the story and just about everything!! The art wasn't that bad either. But being the romantic that I am, I have to say that the story just about did it for me. I wish the story was a little bit longer, but I think that it was still good. Very satisfied with this series :-)
Read it!!

This manga my number one favourite manga! I've seen a lot of mangas, but no one made me feel such emotions. This manga is so beautiful, sometimes funny and realistic. I could felt what the character were feeling. I read it like 4 times, and i never get tired. Chinatsu for me, is the best male lead ever! He cared so much for Butterfly, the best couple ever!.. It made wanted to had such a beautiful boyfriend like him. You CAN'T not read this awesome manga. You won't regret it even one second. The last chapters were so sad, that i really cried and thought that people in real life that has to live in war and suffer so much. Thanx so much for the scanlators for their awesome and great job. ^^ And there is the brother of Chinatsu who made me laugh so hard, love him! xD

The perfect romance

You can't get more heart warming than this. Butterfly falls in love with Chinatsu, a renowned tatoo artist. Together they form a committed bond towards one another. The story chronicles their love and struggles through the Japan of the 1940s. The depicted romance is deeply moving and filled with happy and tearfully sad moments. You get drawn into their surreal love as they evolve though the romance. My only complaint is that I wished this was longer because it's such a great read, I just didn't want it to ever end.

I really cried at the last chapter!!! I really thought that Chinatsu...okay, I won't spoil it for you so figure it out yourself. I was really happy with the ending. Oh the twins are so cute!! This manga is really a must read! The story is very simple, yet feels so tragic like. Now I can feel how those people in the olden days feel like when they go through this kind of hard times. It's so sad. Very sad! It kinda makes me feel thankful that there's no war now. Really, try this manga!!

The artwork in this manga is very beautiful and stunning. The attention to detail is also very profound. In the story, the plot has yet to develop (it doesn't drag or drone on though) but the little anecdotes of incidents of the two main characters face never fail to entertain me. This is a very soft, delicate, yet deep story (not to heavy either). It touches into further society and you can feel the sense of atmosphere even though the aspects of the world are just skimmed. Don't worry, however, it is an adorable read as well. The romance is evident and is a central part of the story but it doesn't take away from the actual plot.
I must also add that the synopsis is only the outline of the FIRST chapter. So basically, it doesn't do the actual manga any justice. Ignore the summary and GO AND READ IT!!! It's so AMAZING!
Highly recommended even to non-shoujo readers as long as you are lenient on certain shoujos or not so me. ;)
This is all personal commentary by the way. If you read it or are going to read it and didn't feel the way I did, that's okay. I'm just weird like that. smile

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Wao when I got to the end and he supposed to be dead and I was thinking to myself, about to cry, "but this is not categorise as tragedy..." we'll anyways, after that Butterfly is shown to be more mature and strong, and then suddenly he came back == and then they had two more kids == so productive...and huh, Chinatsu feels like super old, he got to see Butterfly when she was a kid and know he also see the kids growing up haha old geezer~ how old is he by the way ==

Well this was a really heartwarming story, especially when you see the family all together, ahh happy it and happy family, I liked how we get to see the girl growing up, hehe year by year it's so fascinating to see her become more beautiful and lady-like ^_^
